A guide to different types of window blinds

02nd February, 2017


Window blinds are very important for the overall appearance and functionality of almost every room. These window treatments bring many benefits and some of them are better than the others in specific situations. Let’s take a quick look at the different types of window blinds available on the market.

First of all, we can categorize window blinds by their ability to control light. For instance, you can choose between blackout and light filtering window blinds. Clearly, you will need the first option if the room is exposed to the sun most of the day. Blackouts are also ideal for bedrooms. So, when it comes to lighting control, you can choose between blackout blinds, light filtering blinds, wood blinds and cell blinds, depending on the amount of light a particular room receives and how you want to regulate it.

Another great thing about window blinds is the fact that they can increase insulation. This means that they can keep the heat inside your home during winter and cold air during the summer period. If you are interested in their insulating properties, you should consider draperies as the best window treatment solution. You can also use shutters and honeycomb shades.

Window blinds are not only practical, they are attractive too. This means that if you choose the right kind of window blinds for the room, you can significantly improve the aesthetic appearance of that room as well. Faux wood blinds and aluminum blinds are very popular options and cost effective too.

Finally, you should think about the shape of the window before buying window blinds or any other type of window treatment. Whether you have arch windows, high windows, large windows etc., there are blind options for all shapes and sizes so if you’re not sure what you need, just get in touch.
