Default Alternative for blinds

Hi All,

In my two storied new home there are lot of windows. For the first floor i bought faux wood blinds. They look great. But for the second floor i don't want to spend that much money. Is there a cheap but good looking alternative for blinds which can give the same benifits?
Please let me know.

thanks
Aadil

We put solar screens on some of our windows and they work great.

It's going to be very hard to beat faux wood blinds for price/value. Shop online for the best prices. I bought some from Discount Faux & Wood Window Blinds, Window Shades, Mini Vertical Blinds and got great quality at a low price.

The 'matchstick' style shades can be a temporary fix or nice enough to leave permanently(especially if you add light-filtering Roman shades or sheers) and can be found on sale at World Market or frequently on clearance at Lowe's(check the deals on Sat/Sun clearance aisles).
