Well, this is the added advantage that window blinds offer. The cellular or honeycomb blinds helps to control the temperature of the room helping in minimizing the use of heaters or AC while solar blinds or energy efficient blinds helped to save the energy wasted on turning on lights during the day. These are capable of holding the glare outside while allowing the light to flow in.
Bear in mind that there are several different types of blinds and shades to choose from according to style and materials used. Some of the popular types of blinds include slat blinds, Venetian blinds, vertical blinds, solid blinds, wood blinds, cellular blinds, custom blinds, and Holland blinds.
Mixing window blinds and other styles and types of window treatments will allow you to be more versatile in your window decor ideas. To have necessary privacy along with light exclusion you would have a blind in a thick fabric along with curtains just for decoration if you want. Why not combined at floaty voile full-length curtain and a thick textured blind or maybe a splash of some more curious fabric only allowing it for dress curtains only. By draping a scarf or maybe a decorative shawl on some swag holders will soften the blinds lines. These ideas are more economical than the conventional drapery window coverings.
In addition to these types of blinds, there are even reflective blind styles that prevent heating or cooling. Roman blinds, rolling blinds, and more contemporary blind styles can be constructed using reflective material so you can better insulate your windows. You should even consider the materials blinds are made from as this can impact insulation. For example, timber blinds have natural insulating properties, while metal blinds do not. Cedar is an especially good insulator because it is light and porous. Alternatively, consider combining your blinds with heavy fabrics for better heat and sound insulation.
