Custom Blind Product Options
Premium, 100% North American hardwood blinds offer elegance and rich warmth, and insulation to any interior. They’ll even look and feel similar to plantation shutters for a fraction of the cost. Did we mention, its responsibly-sourced wood?
While most brands promote their aluminum products as rustproof, some may experience corrosion due to extended moisture contact. For this scenario, a composite product like vinyl or faux wood blind is a great alternative while still being a cost-effective solution for bathrooms.
Aluminum blinds are a great choice for rooms that receive a lot of sun, as the material can stand long exposure to heat and direct light without warping. Aluminum blinds are the ideal solution for the sunniest of rooms.
Horizontal blinds are great options for smaller and narrower windows. These blinds have thinner slats compared to their vertical counterparts and can be best suited for traditional windows that are opened to circulate air. Thinner slats are less efficient in blocking light that’s why they are used for small or medium-sized windows.
Vertical blinds are ideal for covering sliding glass doors, long and wide windows, French windows and conservatories. These blinds have bigger slats and hang at the top of the window opening, thus providing easier access and more light control. Vertical blinds can be easily pushed out of the way because of their vertical alignment and wider slats allow less light to enter.

Faux wood blinds, also known as composite or hybrid blinds, are window blinds that are made to look like real wood blinds that are made from synthetic materials such as vinyl or composite wood. They are more affordable and durable but with the same classic look as real wood blinds.
Faux wood blinds are generally less expensive than real wood blinds and more durable and moisture-resistant. However, they may not have the same warmth and authenticity as real wood blinds.
Yes, faux wood blinds are moisture-resistant and will not warp or crack, making them ideal for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
There is a lot to consider when measuring your window treatments. Every treatment will have different considerations, including the function and look you try to achieve with your window treatments and the corresponding hardware and surroundings like window trim, built-in furniture, etc. At 3 Blind Mice, our in-home designers will help you select the window treatments of your dreams with professional measurements to ensure the perfect fit.
Consider using sheer curtains or shades to allow natural light in while still maintaining some privacy. You can also choose a window treatment with adjustable slats, like blinds, to control the amount of light coming in.
Yes, you can layer different types of window treatments for added style and functionality. For example, you can pair drapes with blinds or shades for extra privacy and light control. Layering window treatments also adds depth and texture to your living room decor.
Measurement requirements differ depending on the window treatment and how and where you mount it. You must account for hardware, window trim, and the like. At 3 Blind Mice, our in-home designers will help to ensure that you have professional measurements and the perfect fit.
While sheer vertical blinds can filter light, they are not designed to block out sunlight completely. However, they can be paired with other window treatments such as blackout curtains or shades, for complete light control.
The main disadvantage of wooden blinds is their susceptibility to moisture and humidity, which can cause warping and damage over time.
There are several factors to consider when looking at the price of motorized blinds. The first is window treatment styles – many blinds, from vertical blinds and horizontal blinds, including the classic Venetian blinds, can be motorized. The material's price — from aluminum to composites to genuine wood — will impact the overall project's cost. The second factor is motorization technology. Because of the broad range of options available, it's challenging to provide a precise cost estimate as prices can range between $129 - $300 per window.
There are several great power options for motorized blinds. The most common power options are hard-wired, battery or solar operated. Hard-wired power can come in two forms: either having an electrician run wires through the walls to connect each window covering to your home’s primary electrical system, or simply running the power cord from the window blinds window coverings to the nearest outlet. Battery power is available in three forms: built-in rechargeable batteries, external non-rechargeable, or external rechargeable batteries. The last option is to operate the blinds using solar power, which is suitable for windows that get six or more direct sunlight hours per day. Most solar-powered shades have enough power to open and close once daily.
Motorized window treatments controlling natural light and privacy in your home at the touch of a button are an excellent convenience. Although the benefits of motorized blinds are innumerable, here are a few of our favorites: - Motorization decreases the wear on your blinds—no uneven pulling or hurried tugging on the lift mechanisms when you’re in a hurry or your hands are full. - It allows you to lower your shades with ease via the push of a button, remote control, or even a programmed schedule, so you don’t have to do anything at all. - Motorized blinds can be connected to the smartphone and smart home automation technology that you already use in your daily life.
Motorized window blind batteries last you up to an entire year. The type of battery, how fresh the batteries are, how often the blinds are opened/closed, and the size and the weight of the blinds all will be part of the contributing factors. Most rechargeable batteries will wear down over time, and the older batteries may need to be recharged more often than when they are starting brand new.
Let's talk about power supply! Motorized window shade batteries last anywhere from six months to an entire year. Your individual experience will depend on a number of factors: the type of battery, how new the batteries are, how often you open and close the shades, and the size of the window treatment. Because most rechargeable batteries wear down some over time, older batteries may need to be recharged more often than when they’re brand new.
There are several great power options for motorized blinds and shades. The most common power options are hard-wired, battery, or solar. Hard-wired power can come in two forms: either having an electrician run wires through the walls to connect each window covering to your home’s main electrical system, or simply running the power cord from the window coverings to the nearest outlet. Battery power is available in three forms: built-in rechargeable batteries, external non-rechargeable, or external rechargeable batteries.

There are two types of hard-wired motorized shades: running wires through the walls of your home, or running a power cord from the window covering to the nearest outlet. Running wires through the walls of your home to connect to your home’s main electrical system is best done at the time your home is built or during a substantial renovation, although it is possible in some cases to wire motorized shades as a stand-alone project. This is a project for a qualified electrician and probably not a good idea to try yourself. The second option is running a power cord from the window covering to the nearest outlet. This option may not look as neat, since there will be power cords running from each motorized shade to a nearby outlet; however, it can be done yourself since no wiring is required.
There are several factors to consider when looking at the price of motorized shades. The first is window treatment styles – many types of blinds, shades, and even shutters can be motorized. The price of the window treatments themselves will impact the cost of the overall project. The second factor is the motorization technology. 3 Blind Mice is your motorization specialist for QMotion, Somfy, Lutron, Graber, and Mechoshade motorized blinds and shades.

Yes, you can hang roman shades over blinds. Due to how blinds and roman shades are mounted, when you consider pairing them, one will need to mount inside the window frame, and the others are mounted outside the window frame. Due to the soft aesthetic of roman shades, they are more commonly paired with drapes or curtains.
