Blinds are the most popular window covering. Why? Because they’re highly functional and they look great. But which type of blinds do you want? Here are the best types of blinds in the market.
These shades are designed to cover difficult to reach skylights. Cellular shades are popular for skylights because of their insulating properties.
Roller shades are usually made from synthetic or natural fabrics and can be rolled up or down to suit your needs. They are available in several different styles that mount to the window in a variety of different ways. They often have additional features such as thermal or blackout linings.
This type of blind is ideal for big open spaces that are exposed to the sun such as living rooms with very wide windows because they protect from UV rays. Instead of using a rope to pull up these solar shades you will be able to simply roll them up.
Roman shades are made from fabric or materials like jute or seagrass. As a Roman shade is raised, it folds into itself and it can create quite a large stack of fabric when they’re raised completely. So they do remove a portion of the viewable space of your window when raised.
If you want a room, in particular, to get enough light from the exterior while still using blinds, sheer shades, which are horizontal blinds with a sheer cloth, are among the best options. These are ideal for kitchens.
Venetian blinds are the most popular style. They feature horizontal slats which attach with string or strips of cloth. As Venetian blinds are raised, the bottom slat is pressed into the slat above it.
If you live in a place where the temperatures can reach a pretty high peak because of the sun, exterior shades could be a great pick for you. These blinds block out the heat from the sun.
