Blinds are a classic window treatment that you can find in most of today’s homes. There are many styles of blinds to fit into your home’s décor, and custom blinds can come with certain operating systems that make them an even more convenient addition. Blinds can be horizontal like you might commonly think of, or they can be vertical, which works best for larger expanses of glass. Read on to learn more about selecting the right type of window blinds for your home.
When you think of blinds, you may be tempted to imagine white aluminum blinds that are very standard, but blinds can be so much more than that in terms of style. There are many different types of materials and colors available for blinds, depending on what you are looking for. Wood blinds are a great option for a neutral colored window treatment that will also add warmth and beauty to your home. For a more affordable option, sometimes a faux wood
or hybrid option is the best route to take. These types of blinds typically have the look and feel of real wood, and can even be more durable in terms of withstanding exposure to heat. Non-wood blinds, like aluminum for example, typically have a great color selection that makes it easy to incorporate them into your home’s current décor.
Horizontal blinds, the most common orientation of blinds, are typically designed for the regular sized windows in your home. Vertical blinds
, on the other hand, are better suited for larger windows or sliding glass doors because they provide easier operation. No matter which orientation your home’s windows need, there are so many customizable options to make them stylish and dramatically transform any room in your home.
Blinds are great for giving you privacy when you need it most, and some blinds feature no cord holes so you can block out any light from entering into your home and you do not have to deal with annoying specks of light shining through. When you do prefer light streaming into your home, horizontal blinds, as well as vertical blinds, offer great degrees of light control. Open them fully to really brighten up a room in your home, or partially open them for a little daylight and still get a view of the outside. For even more options in light control, opt for a blind with wider slats. This lets more light stream in and additionally offers a modern and sleek look.
