Wood, aluminum or plastic 1' blinds?

Posted by nancita (My Page) on

My window jambs are very narrow so I have to use 1" blinds. I currently have wood (the color and the material). I would like to replace them with white ones.
Wood blinds are heavy and thick, aluminum seems retro and plastic, well, seems cheap. What is the current style, is there is such a thing for such an item?
Thank you.

RE: Wood, aluminum or plastic 1' blinds?

I put 2" white faux wood blinds in my 1" deep windows and they looked great. The top, where they're installed, isn't be a problem because there's plenty of room, and the blinds don't look funny sticking out too far or anything like that, if that's what you're concerned about. 2" looks a lot better than 1", I think.
