Window Blinds

Window Blinds

What comes to your mind when you hear the word Window Blinds?

I bet the word evokes the images of slats, one above another, moving up or down in unison. The term “Venetian” may flash in your memory.

Your model of window blinds is consistent with mine. Let me add three more defining elements to make this image vivid

  • You tilt-open and tilt-close the slats.
  • Slats are usually made of wood, aluminum or synthetic material.
  • Modern day blinds come in beautiful finishes to create a warm and inviting home decor.

You get degrees of light and privacy control from slat style window coverings. Slats operate at an angle to let in more or less light (more or less privacy).

Window Blinds vs. Shades

You will find the term window blinds and window shades used interchangeably. I prefer the distinction between them. Window shades use a soft material instead of slats.

In case of window shades, you roll the shade fabric up or down. There is no tilt-open and tilt-close position.

Slats offer intermediate positions—tilt-open and tilt-close the slats.

Window Blinds Choices

Blind choices vary based on the slat material—wood, synthetic material or aluminum.

Wood Blinds

Do you gravitate towards natural beauty?

Slats made from real wood are nature crafted. Each hardwood slat features a unique fingerprint—whorls, knots, and grain.

Composite Wood Blinds

Do you strive for a smart alternative to wood slats?

Composite Blinds are made of modern materials that offer enhanced durability. Slats will not fade, yellow, warp or bow.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical vanes move from side to side rather than moving up and down.

When you traverse vertical style window coverings to one side, you get the most unobstructed view. This makes them great for patio door openings with sliding doors and other wide expanse windows.
