When it comes to buying window treatments, there are so many choices that home owners might get confused. In this article, I will compare between mini and cellular blinds. Through this comparison, you will see their pros and cons, which will then help you understand what are their differences and which one might fit your needs better.

Cellular window blinds are more energy efficient when compared to mini blinds. This is due to their cellular structure, which create pockets of air between their cells and helps to better insulate the home. This means less energy is wasted in using high energy consumption devices like air conditioners and heaters. Compared to that, mini blinds do not have such insulation capabilities which means they don’t help that much to help the home owners conserve energy and save money on electric bills.

Cellular shades are easier to control than mini blinds. The latter has the tilt and lift functions. You need to adjust the two settings to arrive at the right balance to control and the amount of light you want to enter the room. Compared that with the ease of the cellular blinds, which uses only the lift function to control the lighting. Such ease of operation why they are preferred by busy people who wants an easy and quick way to adjust their blinds.

Mini blinds, however have the advantage of fitting into narrow windows. As our houses are becoming smaller, so as the windows. This means the blinds need to be smaller as well to match the size of the windows. In this regard, mini blinds will be more suitable compared to cellular blinds.

There are more differences but I want to highlight the major ones to make it easier for you to know the contrasting difference. I hope this helps in your purchasing decision when buying window blinds.
