Are curtains cheaper than blinds?

There are customers who are unsure if blinds would be a better choice compared to curtains.

When choosing blinds, customers have a choice of half height or ¾ height. Most commonly, customers would choose to have ¾ height blinds for better coverage. But this also depends on the window size you have.

Suppose your new BTO flat has a ¾ or full height window, you would not be able to install a ½ height blind!

But if you have a ½ height window, you can choose to get a ¾ height blinds for better light blockage. But this will be more costly.

Width wise, blinds are calculated window to window with additional margin on both sides and in height for better light blockage.

There are many new homeowners who prefer to use Venetian blinds in their homes.

This estimated quotation on Venetian blinds shows that it is more costly to install blinds.

This is due to the mechanisms and production specificity of blinds. Blinds come with more parts which means they require higher level of production.

However, it is not entirely relevant to compare them just by price!

They have different functions, mechanisms and may be needed in your home for a more elegant and cohesive interior design.
