Window blinds are offered in various materials. Fabric, metal, wood or vinyl, the options are vast and we have to choose the right material depending upon the location of the window, purpose of the blind, type of window and so on. Like the vinyl material are best for wash rooms while the fabric material is the best for living or bedrooms. Similarly, the bay windows can have fabric material while the wood can take place in the study or outhouse.
Finding the right window blind for your rooms decor should start with understanding the window treatments that you have to work with. The simplest window blind type is a roller blind, which consists of a flat piece of fabric that is stiffened then wrapped around the wooden roller and attached to the top of the window with brackets. The roller blinds design uses a spring in one end, which allows the blind to be adjusted to any height with the use of a ratchet system. Roller blinds can be made with most fabrics and then have a stiffening agent applied to the fabric which allows easy cleaning with a damp cloth making them great for bathroom and kitchen window blinds. If you’re looking for at luxurious pristine look then a festoon blind will be your choice it has extra fullness and is gathered into a length giving you a rich robust effect. It’s usually made with fine fabric textures like voile, being that this type of blind uses a large amount of fabric it tends to be more expensive. By using a series of cords vertically running through rings and then sewn on the back of the blinds fabric gives the basics to lower and raise several different blind systems.
Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are designed specifically to protect against heat loss, and they are made from air-pocketed honeycomb-like material. You can get single-cell honeycomb blinds which are effective in protecting against cold, or duel cell blinds which offer excellent insulation in the winter and summer months. You can also get blackout blinds which insulate while also blocking out light. And finally, light filtering blinds are useful for controlling the amount of light that enters a room, and can help you control the warmth of a room when the sun is shining.
