- Norman Window Fashions
For the more budget conscious, Norman window blinds are an excellent option. If you are looking to give your home a fresh look without all the bells and whistles or cutting edge technology, Norman has you covered. Norman offers “smart privacy” technology, which is an easy solution to ensure maximum privacy, while blocking out intense UV rays and heat.
Norman budget window blinds come in the Essentials and Premium series (faux wood) with 2” or 2.5” slats. Search the internet and you’ll find they get the best faux wood blinds reviews. Or you can choose the Normandy series (wood blinds) also with 2” or 2.5” slats. For an easy everyday window treatment ideal for the kitchen or bathroom, Norman also carries aluminum blinds with 1” or ½” slats. The ½” slats tend to be most popular giving homes a more contemporary feel. But those who prefer an older-style that is reminiscent of Venetian blinds, often choose to go with the 2” slats. You will find all Norman’s blinds wonderfully adjustable to allow just the right amount of light.

Vista Products is another brand we carry offering amazing blinds designed to fit your home and lifestyle. Owned by Hunter Douglas and manufactured right here in North Carolina, Vista Products is one of the industry leaders with an expansive variety of window treatments in faux wood, wood, and aluminum perfect for any room in your home.

- Bali/Graber Window Blinds
Owned by Spring Window Fashions, this brand comes highly recommended for commercial clients, especially those in need of aluminum mini-blinds for their offices. Remember that how you choose to decorate your office is all about how you want your clients to perceive you and your business.
Bali/Graber aluminum mini-blinds work well for many contractors and service-based businesses. But if you are in a field where you need to project a softer, more comfortable image, then you will want something a bit more cozy. Fortunately, Bali also offers a variety of fashionable, classic window coverings. Roll up shades are a popular choice for professionals. Make a bold statement with bright colors or choose a subtle pattern to add character and complement the solid colors of your furniture. Either way, window treatments are the perfect way to set the right mood in your office. And of the window blinds brands we carry, you’ll be able to find just that; the perfect window blinds.
Window Blinds Brands: More Than an Expression of Personal Style
Your choice in window treatments is more than another way to express your personal style. It is an investment in the life of your home. Yes, we have products to fit every budget, but we know real value goes beyond price. That’s why we’re here for our customers even after purchase with answers to some common questions.
After you’ve chosen your window treatments, you may wonder how to install blinds for best results. If you’re handy with a drill (or happen to have a friend or son-in-law who is), there are lots of instructional videos available online to make hanging your blinds yourself easy. Fitted blinds can be a challenge to install because the brackets go on the inside of window frames and lining up those brackets can be tricky. The right tools can make all the difference with installations like this. We are happy to provide installation in your home for an additional fee. After choosing one of the window blinds brands we carry and then the right window blinds, you will want your new window treatment to be installed properly so consider letting a professional do it.
Once your blinds are installed, you may also wonder whether you should change the paint color of your rooms to complement your new blinds. Well, this is entirely up to you and your sense of style, but we always recommend that if customers anticipate wanting to change paint colors more often than the life of their window treatments, they choose blinds in a neutral color. This will give them the most options when it comes to changing other room accessories over the years.
