Premier Chicago Window Blinds, Shades & Shutter Company

Natural shades brown

When choosing window treatments for your Chicago area home, you'll want to check out the top window blinds, shades, and shutters we offer at Blind Designs of Illinois.

One of the first considerations you'll make is whether you need privacy or light control - or both! Key considerations are fabric type and color: Sheer and light fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque darker fabrics almost completely block it.

Our Chicago shutter company offers a wide selection of window treatments that complement your décor, from shades and shadings to shutters and blinds. Contact us today if you'd like to set up a free design consultation at your location! We can help you choose the best styles for your décor!


Our shutters are a beautiful option when your main goals are privacy and light filtering rather than room darkening. Our classic plantation shutters come in a wide variety of long-lasting materials and finishes.

We offer high-quality Plantation Shutters in real wood and faux-wood styles. They come in a variety of paint colors and stains to go with the design style of your Chicago home.

  • Heritance® Hardwood Shutters
  • Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters
  • NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters


If you like the look of blinds but are worried about light coming through the window treatment, many of our wood blinds and metal blinds come with the de-Light™ feature. This is a routless design that hides cord holes and blocks light more efficiently.

The de-Light™ feature is available for these styles of window blinds for your Chicago home:

  • Parkland® Wood Blinds
  • EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds
  • Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds


Another option is Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which offer a wide selection of opaque colors and fabrics and come with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency.

Duette® shades provide maximum privacy and light control when combined with the Duolite™ feature: Two fabric panels, one made from a light filtering fabric and one from a room darkening fabric, each span the full width of the shade and can be moved independently.
