Default Window Blinds?

My new place is west facing and I am looking to put some blinds in. I was curious if you guys have any sugesstions on where to get them. The windows are not your "standard size" so some might need to be custom cut.

Any local places you guys know of? or reccomend?

Thanks, Max

Fast, good quality, decent prices.

I bought mine online from JCPenny. I looked around and they had the most reasonable prices. You would be amazed at how much some places charge for window treatments.

We used Costco and bought Hunter Douglas. They were still spendy but really nice.

As far as the process, it was very professional from sales person to installer.

Home Depot and Lowes i found will custom cut what size u need. You just have to adjust the length your self.

Cheap sheets and some thumb tacks?

Otherwise I'd echo Walmart, HD, Lowes, etc. if you are just looking for some inexpensive blinds vs. permanent "bling" blinds

You can even get those paper ones at Home Depot or Lowes. With a clip in the middle you can make them look fancy.
