A window blind is a means of covering a window, by achieving similar results to those obtained by fitting drapery. Blinds are typically the same width and height as the window itself or slightly wider and taller, depending on whether they are fixed inside or outside the window's reveal - the wall recess within which the window itself is fixed.
At Mayfair, we measure and install to make sure that your blinds are a perfect fit for not just your windows, but your style.

Choosing window blinds, or shades depends on a few factors. Here are some quick questions you should ask yourself or that we can discuss together as you look for new window blinds for your Toronto home:
- Amount of light you would like to let in – are you looking to block out all light (e.g. in a bedroom for sleeping) or would you like to still have some light diffuse through while offering you privacy (e.g. a living room or kitchen window that faces the street or the house next to you)?
- Aesthetics – are you interested in using your blinds or shades as an accent in the room or are you more of a minimalist?
- Materials – do you have a preference on what your shades are made of? Heavier materials will help to keep out the hot sun in the summer and keep in the warmth in winter but they’ll allow less light and will be stiffer to use. Lighter materials can sometimes be more delicate and susceptible to accidents.
- Longevity – are you the kind of person who will change up your décor every few years or will these be in your windows for the next 20 years if possible?
We offer a wide variety of blinds and shades to match your style, functionality, and aesthetic. As we are a custom blind retailer, you’ll get to work with our experts to strategize, measure, and decide on your desired fabric, style, and functionality for a window covering solution that best fits you and your home.
Our blinds selections include:
- Sunset Shades: These solid pieces of fabric are light enough to allow diffused light in but solid enough to ensure privacy.
- Dual Shades: For the ultimate in custom comfort, these shades allow you to create personalized privacy and shade options by combining two shades into one – a sheer back with a slatted front.
- Aluminum Blinds: Versatile and well-matched to most décors, these blinds offer a cost efficient option and a classic look.
- Horizontal Blinds: Add some soft style while you block out the sun and gain privacy with these sophisticated blinds. They can seamlessly cover larger window expanses.
- Honeycomb Shades: These shades offer excellent energy efficiency in both warm and cold climates while also looking beautiful.
- Vertical Blinds: These blinds offer easy maintenance, total light control, and a touch of style and elegance to whatever room you choose to put them in.
