Almost everyone has heard the term "mini blinds", but what does it mean—especially in comparison to other window treatments?

At Blindster.com, our selection of aluminum mini blinds includes a variety of window treatments featuring slats that are 1" wide.
Mini blinds are a popular term because they're a common fixture in households, businesses, and any buildings that require window treatments. Because of their affordability, light weight, and ease of cleaning, aluminum mini blinds are easy on the wallet, highly convenient, and are versatile enough to be installed in rooms with a wide variety of décor and color schemes.
