Roman blinds are constructed using a piece of cloth, plastic, or any natural material, and can be lowered or raised to your height. A cord also raises and lowers the blinds, but there is no other way you can adjust the light. Vertical Blinds Vertical blinds come with wide slats that typically hang on a track. A cord is pulled to put the blinds on one side, and a stick rotates the slats to regulate the light. Honeycomb Blinds Honeycomb or cellular shades have two layers of fabric folding when the blinds are raised. The cross-section of this kind of blinds is a procession of hexagons, thus producing the name “honeycomb blinds. Honeycomb blinds ease but do not fully block sunlight. Stack Height The stack height refers to how much space the blinds take up when they are completely folded. Blinds with a short stack height are better if your window has a picturesque view. Sunlight Blinds block obstruct varied amounts of sunlight, depending on the materials used to make them. Aluminum and wooden Venetian blinds can clearly dim a room( even completely) more than honeycomb blinds ever can. Size Blinds that are affixed to the inside of the window let more light enter through the sides but look cleaner. Blinds that are mounted above the window must be larger than the window. These block the most light, but in any case, careful measurements are vital. Design Constancy Installing the same type of blinds for each windows in a room is preferable for a sense of design unity. Honeycomb blinds are the only type of blinds that have the ability to lock in a layer of air between the outdoor and the indoor. This works for insulation, permitting light to enter while controlling heat and cold. Honeycomb blinds are as well the kind that commonly offers a Bottom Up Top Down (BUTD) feature. Special Blinds Finally, some special blinds are worth having, especially in homes with young kids and/or seniors. A few examples are remote control, motorized and cordless blinds, along with BUTD blinds, which cleverly allow you to open the blinds from above instead of just from below.
