Unfortunately, my condo came with some terrible blinds that malfunction all the time. We've put up with them for the last 2.5 years but now they are actually breaking. One has literally fallen off the window and two have simply stopped going up or down. sigh.
We decided to go "all-out" and get some fancy cordless blinds for the two bedrooms. They are cellular blinds without cords. yay! For our enclosed balcony we chose to simply replace what we currently have. They are standard aluminum blinds that are extremely long! We only replaced the two that are broken, but there are actually 8 of them in total.
For the 4 blinds (1 in each bedroom and 2 for the enclosed balcony) came to a whopping $896 (including tax). AND it was 20% off! holy crappola! The price was so high because we got pretty sweet blinds for the bedrooms and the ones in the balcony are just so huge.
I even shopped around and couldn't find anything cheaper. I looked into ordering them online but the shipping would have killed me. I guess this is just the cost of blinds. Live and learn huh?
