February is a month filled with fun and excitement including Mardi Gras celebrations and Cupid’s favorite holiday. But after packing away the last of the Christmas decorations, Mardi Gras beads, and Valentine’s Day candy hearts, you may find yourself wanting a way to refresh your home décor. New window dressings are a small change that can make a big impact in your home. There is no better way to elevate your style than to draw the eyes of your guests to a perfectly-placed curtain or plantation shutter. Phyllis White, owner of Budget Blinds in Lake Charles, shares the latest in trends this year; and that includes motorized blind features.

"Motorization has become a standard, not a luxury,” says White.  Motorized blinds let you lose the messy operating cords and allow your home to be safer for pets and children, while simply making life easier. You gain streamlined privacy with the touch of a button, and motorized blinds can work in any window, especially those out of reach. 

White also reminds customers that Roman shades and interior plantation shutters never go out of style and are an easy, timeless way to impact any living space. Roman shades can be created with either neutral or colorful, eye-catching fabrics, and can change the look of a space with minimal effort. She says her company has partnered with Design Ink to produce custom color and design fabrics in different weaves that are then sent to her workroom. "This will be the hottest trend this year with soft treatment design.”

When deciding to make changes to a home, White recommends customers first determine what fits within their budget. Window treatments come at a wide range of price points. According to White, blinds are usually within the starting price point, followed by honeycombs and roller shades. Roman shades follow, with shutters and drapery typically falling into a higher price point. However, a smaller window with a composite shutter can often be the same price as a Roman shade.

Although their name is Budget Blinds, they offer much more than just blinds, including custom draperies and bedding.
