What to Consider When Shopping for Window Blinds Blinds are the simple yet effective solution to window treatments that are extensively available in both brick-and-mortar and web-based stores. However, before shopping, you must know the various kinds of blinds, vital considerations, and particular features. Type Venetian Blinds Venetian blinds are the most popular type of blinds ever. They are constructed using thin plastic slats or vinyl linked together through strings. A cord is pulled to lower or raise the blinds, and a stick is twisted them to control the amount of light.

Roman blinds are made of a sheet of plastic, fabric or any natural materials, and can be raise or lowered to any height. A cord is used to raise and lower the blinds, but there is no other way of controlling the light. Vertical Blinds Vertical blinds have wide slats that generally hang from a track. A cord pulls the blinds to either side, and a stick twists the slats to control the light. Honeycomb Blinds Honeycomb or cellular shades come with two layers of fabric that fold as the blinds are raised. The cross-section of this type of blinds is a sequence of hexagons, hence the name “honeycomb blinds. Honeycomb blinds ease but do not fully block sunlight. Stack Height The stack height refers to how much space the blinds take up when they are completely folded. Blinds having a short stack height are preferable if your window has a beautiful view outside. Sunlight Blinds block obstruct varied amounts of sunlight, depending on the materials used to make them. Obviously, aluminum and wooden Venetian blinds can darken a room (even totally) more than honeycomb blinds can. Size Blinds that are affixed to the inside of the window let more light enter through the sides but look cleaner. If they are mounted above the window, they must be bigger than the window. These block the most light, but either way, measurements have to be correct. Design Constancy Installing the same type of blinds for each windows in a room is preferable for a sense of design unity. Honeycomb blinds are the only kind of blinds that can entrap a layer of air between the indoor and the outdoor. This works for insulation, permitting light to enter while controlling heat and cold. Honeycomb blinds are also the kind that usually comes with a Bottom Up Top Down (BUTD) option. Special Blinds Finally, some special blinds are worth having, especially in homes with young kids and/or seniors. Some examples are cordless blinds, motorized blinds, remote control blinds, and BUTD blinds, which inventively let you open the blinds from the top rather than just from the bottom.
