Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
Material: In the market you can find window blinds in wide variety of material ranging from fabric to aluminum, wooden to vinyl. And you must not forget that there is no blind in the market which you can say that it is perfect but you can select the material of the blind according to your needs and specification. There are two things which you must consider before selecting the material of your blind. Firstly you must think of your budget. And secondly you must think of which type of texture does you prefer? You must also make sure that the material which you have selected for your window blind must fit well with the decor of your room.
It depends on you what privacy level you are looking for. The blinds are offered in sheer, room darkening to blackout range. At times, you may prefer complete blackout may be in the bedroom or TV room or you may opt for some light in the living room or study room. If you have a panoramic view from the window you may prefer to have controlled light option with a complete view from the window. For this purpose, you may prefer energy efficient window blinds. You may also choose sheer or solar blinds to have a glow of light but protect your furnishings from the harmful rays.
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.
