Beautiful blinds on a budget

If you’re looking to update your blinds, but you’re worried about the costs then we’re here to help. One of the things we pride ourselves on here at Swift Direct Blinds is that we cater to every budget. If you’re hoping for a cheaper option that still looks sophisticated, modern and is durable then we have lots of excellent choices for you. Rather than being an added price for custom fit, our full range of made-to-measure blinds allows you to personalize your interior at an affordable price. We also stock a huge variety of colours, designs, patterns, and fabrics to ensure that our blinds are not only cost-effective but available in the latest colours and trends. Here we’ll break down three of our most cost-effective choices and explain the benefits of each type of blind.


Faux Wood Blinds

We pride ourselves on our extensive range of faux wood blinds that come in venetians and shutters. Long gone are the days of cheap plastic alternatives to wood – faux wood blinds now offer all the characteristics of real wood, including several options for grained texture and a premium, stunning finish. They’re the perfect choice for anyone on a budget because they’re hugely versatile – coming in a large variety of shades, colours and styles. It’s easy to achieve the premium look without the price tag. Another thing that makes faux woods so appealing is that they’re much easier to care for than their real wood counterparts which have the potential of warping. Not only are they budget friendly they’re also completely water-resistant and have increased strength and durability because they’re made from UPVC.

Roller Blinds  


Roller blinds are another excellent cost-effective window treatment. Not only are they available in a huge variety of colours, patterns, fabrics, and designs, but you also have the option of choosing different fabric types. Want to control the light in your rooms? Opt for blackout roller blinds. Want to create an atmosphere? Choose light filtering roller blinds. Need blinds for your bathroom? Consider the PVC roller blinds collection. Want to add some texture? We have a range of textured roller blinds too. The best thing about roller blinds is they’re cost effective and practical!

Curtains and Roman Blinds 

When it comes to curtains it’s important to select a style that suits your needs – and it’s very easy to select different types of fabrics that work within your budget. However, another way to think about the cost of curtains (or any of our specialty blind fabrics) is to consider their purpose in the long term. Are you looking to save money on heating or cooling your house? Specialty fabrics like thermal or cooling, or even blackout, might be more expensive up front but save you in the long term. Another important fact to consider when trying to find a design that aligns with your budget is that price often comes down to the fabric choice itself. We recommend that you order samples so that you can look at the quality, look, and feel of the material before committing to a design. You may find that faux wood, faux velvet, and faux leathers are just as attractive as their ‘real’ counterparts.
