1" Mini Blinds are still popular and an inexpensive way to cover a window opening.  A quality ( 8 guage) Aluminum Mini Blind will  give great light control and offer good privacy.  Quality 1" Mini Blinds are also energy efficient.  The light-weight blind also come in an array of colors to match any decor.  

Unfortunately, the CHEAP CHINESE version of this product ruined the reputation of this once-dominate blind in the market.  Truth is that you just cant buy a cheap plastic version (of a 1" Mini Blind)from a box store (for $5) and expect it to last.   We DO NOT sell this junk.  We only sell 1" Aluminum Mini Blinds fabricated by our TRUSTED suppliers.
