We came across some blinds at a friend's house the other day, and were delighted that they weren't of the metal or plastic variety. Even more surprising to us was the price it cost to outfit the room (not much) and where this great deal was found (most surprising of all). More after the jump!

We've always got our eyes peeled for great deals on window treatments for homes, which can sometimes run pretty high. And while blinds and shades aren't always the most attractive, they are quite functional. We loved our friend's choice of a honeycomb shade in a simple off-white. Where did she find this deal? On blinds.com! We had visited this website before, but frankly hadn't been convinced of its trustworthiness (maybe it was the red, white and blue colors or maybe even still the chosen graphic scheme). Whatever the case, it was comforting to see someone use the site and get a quality but affordable product. The website seems to offer a pretty large variety of shapes, colors and sizes of window treatments, which could be a great resource if you're looking for something special.

Have you ever used blinds.com? What are your favorite affordable but high-quality online resources for great-looking blinds and window treatments? Share your tips and advice!
