Most blinds come with a rod that twists instead of cords that pull. This is a clean look and much safer for children. Aluminum blinds, also known as mini, micro or macro blinds are the most typical horizontal blinds on the market. The aluminum material makes these blinds a cost-effective alternative to other expensive window treatments. They are usually sold in ½” to 2” sizes; however, you can obtain custom blinds made of aluminum as well. The ½” size is perfect for shallow depth windows and doors. Scratch resistant slats keep them looking like new for years. Expensive products are not needed to maintain aluminum; just one metal cleaner is enough to keep bright your aluminum blinds.
