Shutter trim

Window blinds allow you to control the light that enters through your windows, as well as the visibility of both the interior and exterior. Not only do they add privacy and elegance to windows, but they also help block out the sun, which translates into greater energy efficiency in the home.

There are many different colors and styles to match every space. Here you can see the price differences between the types of blinds and select the model that best suits your needs.

Keep in mind that each blind manufacturer has their own names for their models of blinds. For quality reasons, at Meya Design we do not handle PVC vertical blinds (fabric only) and Venetian blinds.

A duplex or triplex blind is often used on very wide windows because all roller blind fabrics and Sheer Elegance have a maximum width of 2 to 3 meters. If the window is wider than this range, the blind has to be divided into several slats. However, this modification does not affect the price, since the price for roller blinds is calculated per square meter and not per piece. A duplex or triplex blind has a price range between $3000 MXN and $12,000 MXN.

When you open the box, take the instructions and check that it includes all the necessary tools to install a blind. Also, you need to get a drill, a screwdriver and a pencil to mark the locations of the bracket holes.

Hold the blind bracket where you want to place the blinds and mark the holes. When you want to install a blind inside your home, you can drill the holes an inch or so from the edge of the wall.

For this, you will want to make sure that the bracket does not interfere with the internal mechanisms of the blind. And if it came with a template for the bracket holes, it’s best to use it to mark them.

Hold the window blind brackets in place, line up the holes and install the screws. In case you don’t have a drill, the screws can be installed with a screwdriver, but it takes longer and can be very difficult when the window frame is hardwood or metal.

The most durable and thinner louvers in the market. Due to their manufacturing material, they can be very resistant to water and continuous light exposure. Also, they can be the favorite of those who love retro style and allow an easy light graduation.

Shutters are expensive

As a self-promoter, I am going to order the windows for my single-family house. I find that I am asked to pay 30% as a down payment, and a series of payments before the final payment, upon receipt and installation of the windows.

I understand that in these times, more than one supplier has been left to “two candles”, with the product manufactured and without payment, but it also happens the other way around, that the supplier is paid and then goes bankrupt or enters into insolvency proceedings, and the one who is left without his money (and without the product) is the customer.

The pre-frames are already installed and 100% paid for. The shutters go together with the windows (they are monobloc). The glass is also included. The complete installation is done by the window company, as well as the corresponding flashing and sealing.

Regarding payment, it will be almost impossible for them to accept the order without paying anything in advance, as we have chosen a non-standard PVC profile (neither ember, walnut or white, which are the usual ones), so the material has to be ordered from Germany specifically for this project.

Which is better, aluminum or PVC blinds?
