If you want your windows to stand out, you can choose from several decorative blinds depending on functionality and design. Some window treatments are used interchangeably, but each has its distinct characteristics.

For instance, curtains are usually pricier, but offer better insulation and soundproofing. If you want something less expensive, easier to clean, and long-lasting, you can install blinds instead. If you want a little bit of both, you can use shades.

If you're looking for decorative blinds for windows or insulated window coverings, here are some blind decorating ideas to get you started.
