Mini blinds are a simple, yet clean way to cover openings with a view while still controlling privacy. The unnoticed small profile and the translucent horizontal lines enable you to look out and get coverage at the same time. New metallic colors and micro-slats will fit and decorate your office and/or kitchen windows with a modern style. Mini blinds are the smallest window-covering product, as it pertains to the size of the head rail and the slat size. They can be ½” and 1” slats, and the head rail can be as small as 1” X 1” up to 1 ½” X 1 ½.”
