Blinds are a type of window covering with a variety of systems for opening and closing, as well as unlimited aesthetic possibilities. A typical blind is made with slats of material that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing the slats to overlap. The main variations on style of blind include horizontal blinds, vertical blinds, and faux/real wood blinds:
Horizontal blinds have movable slats that rest in a horizontal orientation. When deciding if horizontal blinds are right for your window, it is important to consider the unique advantages that are available from horizontal blinds. Horizontal blinds are a wonderful option if you want to maintain a high degree of privacy while still allowing maximum light to come through. The blind slats can be titled towards the ceiling reflecting light through out your room, while still preventing anyone from seeing in through your windows from the outside. Horizontal blinds also come with the most design options to fully customize the look of your window treatment.
Blinds also come in extensive choices for customization that include various fabrics, faux wood, metal, vinyl and pvc slats which are extremely durable and very easy to maintain.
