We believe in finding the perfect marriage between style and promotion of a healthy environment. With eco-friendly window treatments, you can do your part in helping to preserve our natural resources and still be on-trend with innovative products. Take a look!
Hardwood Blinds

Through sustainable-yield forest management, the amount of wood harvested for our hardwood window treatments is below the levels of tree growth. Not only do they provide excellent privacy control, our wood blinds are a natural insulator that helps lower your heating and cooling bills, ensuring your home maintains comfortable temperatures throughout the seasons. They utilize renewable resources and environmentally-friendly forestry techniques without sacrificing style.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, with their honeycomb-shaped cells, act as an insulator, and when combined or layered with other treatments and placed close to the glass, can reduce summer heat gain by as much as 45%. A wide range of opacity choices, from transparent to light-filtering, to room-darkening, allow you to customize natural light. And a vast selection of the latest fabrics and colors ensure a perfect match with your décor.

Woven Shades

Our woven natural shades from our Inspired Shades™ Collection are made from hemp, kenaf and flax, are 100% organic and environmentally-friendly, and completely recyclable! They allow for an operational roller shade on the back of the woven wood in solar, room-darkening, or light-filtering options that allow you to adjust the level of light and reduce heat gain from rising temperatures.

Bamboo Shades

From Roman style to a more streamlined flat style, bamboo shades combine the natural beauty of organic materials with inspired design for a refined, relaxed look to any room. These shades fuse eco-friendly materials, including bamboo, reeds, jutes and grasses, with a variety of designs that can be integrated into the perfect customized window treatment.


Start the New Year with new eco-friendly window treatments that are stylish and sustainable. We use 100% recyclable packaging when shipping our products, and most of our non-wood product components can be recycled as well. Most of our window treatments offer superb energy efficiency that help reduce dependence on electricity and natural gas for cooling and/or heating your home.

Choose Safer Window Coverings

“Going cordless” is a trend across several industries.  But the movement in window coverings is not just about modern style and convenience.  It is an issue of safety for homes with small children.

Some styles of traditional corded window coverings pose a tempting hazard to infants and toddlers who view dangling cords as playthings. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least one child dies from window cord strangulation every month, and during that one-month period, at least one more child suffers a near strangulation.

Budget Blinds® recommends cordless treatments for homes where small children or pets live or frequently visit.  Cordless options include:

  • Shutters:Offer a classic and inherently cordless window covering option
  • Motorized shades:Motorized shades can be raised and lowered with the touch of a button using a battery-operated remote control
  • Cordless cellular shades:A sleek and modern option, cordless cellular shades can be easily raised and lowered with one hand

Choose Energy Efficient Window Coverings

Budget Blinds offers a variety of energy-saving window coverings that are not only stylish but will help you save money in the winter AND the summer too (note: efficient treatments help in the summer by to regulating indoor temperatures!)

Cellular and Roman Shades

Cellular shades and Roman shades are the TOP  energy-saving window coverings. Both of these styles are very trendy and have plenty of factors that help you save money on your energy bill.

Cellular shades (aka pleated or honeycomb shades) are designed to create insulation by trapping the warm air inside and keeping the cold air out! Cellular shades are very versatile window treatments with a variety of fabrics and colors to choose from. We have light filtering options including sheer, light filtering, room-darkening and blackout fabrics which help with privacy and insulation too!

Roman shades are like cellular shades and are one of the most popular windows coverings for energy efficiency. They are stylish and offer plenty of energy-saving qualities. They too come in a variety of colors, prints and textures to add elegance to your home. Due to heavier fabrics, Roman shades can trap in warmth which can save you money on your electric bill as you would ultimately use your heater less and less. Also, like cellular shades, Roman shades come in various degrees of light filtering options for privacy and light control.
