Types of Blinds
There are numerous styles and types of blinds. The type of window blinds you choose may depend on what the blinds are made of and how or where you plan to use them. Without question, premium wood blinds are at the top tier when it comes to home window treatments. While you can expect a higher price point, you can also count on top quality, classic-looking blinds that will maintain their appearance for years to come. Wood blinds add an elegant feel to any room. They’re lightweight, durable and can be natural or painted in the color of your choice. If you want the look of wood blinds, but they’re not in your budget, consider faux wood blinds. Faux wood blinds give you the look of natural wood but cost less. They’re more durable and less prone to damage from moisture or direct sunlight than real wood blinds. That means faux wood blinds are less likely to crack, peel or warp. Other budget-friendly blinds options include aluminum mini blinds and vinyl mini blinds. Both choices are available in a variety of colors and sizes and give you great light coverage and privacy.
Your new blinds may be horizontal or vertical blinds. Horizontal blinds are preferred for smaller, narrower and/or taller windows that open up and down. For larger, wider windows or patio and sliding doors that open from side to side, vertical blinds work best. Patio door blinds and sliding door blinds are versatile, allowing complete privacy when closed and a full view when opened. If you have kids in the house, you’ll appreciate that most of these types of blinds are durable and easy to clean, too. Panel track blinds are perfect for French doors, patio doors, balcony doors and many large windows. Panel blinds are also a smart choice for a room divider that can keep a room private while adding a touch of style. Many panel track blinds are trimmable and adjustable, so they’ll work for your 40-inch windows as well as your 80-inch windows.
Whatever the need, we have the blinds for you. Get added privacy and keep rooms cool with stylish arch blinds. Need blinds to cover the glass in your door? Consider enclosed door blinds. They’re a great choice for homes with kids and pets. And, because the blinds are behind tempered safety glass, they never need dusting.
Before you buy any type of blinds, consider how you want to mount them. Inside mount blinds fit inside the window frame for a neat, clean look. When measuring for the inside mount, measure in three places for width – top, middle and bottom. Then again for height – left, middle and right. Make note for the narrowest width and longest height. You’ll also want to measure the window depth to make sure you have enough room. Outside mount blinds go on the wall or molding above the window. You’ll need at least 2 inches above the frame for mounting brackets. Measure the overall area to be covered. Add an extra 3 inches to the width and height for ideal light and privacy control.
Getting accurate measurements is extremely important. Check out our guide on How to Measure Blinds if you need help with this key step. Once you have properly measured, bring your measurements in to the store. Our associates can cut your in-store bought blinds to the exact size needed, for free.
Popular Blinds Features
Blinds have come a long way over the years, partly because of the many new features that make them simpler to use, and – in turn – make your life easier. Electric blinds or motorized blinds allow you to raise or lower your blinds with the touch of a button. Never worry about tangled cords again when you select cordless blinds. Cordless blinds offer easy, one-hand operation and they’re the safer choice for homes with young children. Control the light with room darkening or light filtering blinds. Blackout blinds are a great option for media rooms, nurseries or people whose schedule dictates that they be able to sleep during daylight hours.
