Types of Blinds

in Room

Blinds are an excellent way to add decoration to your windows using a movable covering of two-inch wide horizontal slats that lets you control the amount of light that enters the room in addition to adding an element of privacy.

Real wood blinds lend a homey atmosphere to any room and can be color stained to match your existing decor. They are perfect for using in dens and home offices and can completely block outdoor lighting when closed.

A less expensive option if you like the look of real wood but not the price are faux wood blinds, actually heavier than wood blinds and quite durable. They make a good choice for children's bedrooms, the kitchen and the bathroom as they are moisture resistant and clean off easily with a damp cloth.

Mini blinds are an inexpensive option for virtually any room in the house, lightweight yet able to do a good job of blocking out light or adding privacy as needed. They are easy to clean and are popular for using in bathroom and kitchen windows in rooms where the air tends to be humid.

Two-inch aluminum blinds have been a standard for many years, although some people consider them old-fashioned looking. They come in a variety of colors and grades of aluminum that resist folding.

If you have French doors or very large picture windows, you may want to consider vertical blinds which open and close from side to side rather than up and down the window. Dust does not collect in vertical blinds as quickly as they do in horizontal blinds and this style comes in a variety of materials, including fabric and easy to clean vinyl. This style of blind can be insulated in order for the blinds to serve as a block against heat build-up in a room that faces south and gets direct sunlight most of the day.
