Window Blinds (Part 2)
- December 10, 2015
Blinds can be made in a variety of materials, some expensive, and some less so. Cheaper blinds are usually made in vinyl, polyester, aluminum, or PVC. These are inexpensive materials that are all easily accessible and durable at the same time.
In continuation from the last post, let’s have a look at the other types of window blinds we have:
Unlike horizontal blinds, vertical blinds are less likely to collect dust because they stand vertically. Since they draw to the side rather than lifting and lowering, they operate better on doors and windows that also slide from side to side. Generally they require less muscle strength, and are faster to operate.
Vertical blinds are available in flat plastic (PVC), fabric, embossed PVC, faux wood materials, metal, wood and also S-curved slats.
Stationary vertical blinds are hung in the doorways of some homes and businesses which generally leave the door open. Movement of the blind may signal a change in air flow, or someone entering the doorway. More commonly however, these vertical blinds are made of thick plastic. In the cold rooms of food businesses, this slows the heat leakage into the cold room. In warmer climates, vertical blinds discourage flies and some other insects from entering the building.
Nothing can match the beauty of natural wood, bamboo blinds creates a seeming natural environment in a simple civilized traditional way. They are available in both roller and flat roman-style shades and may be installed either inside or outside the window frame.
Do enjoy the rest of your day.
