Coverings, shade treatments and window coverings, made of slats or a combination, offer to shut out completely light and air flow or open up to connect to the outside world partially or fully. Realization of the various advantages of these window blinds and shades were acknowledged only recently, that led to the invention of many types of window treatments using different materials. Window blinds and shades offer protection against direct sunlight controlling the harmful UV rays entry, chillness, rain splashes, strong light, heat radiation and strong wind, besides preserving privacy. Suspended slats are connected by a ladder system that enables these slats to either open or close by rotating movements to the extent of about 180 degrees. This rotating movement is controlled by a knob that restricts the level of opening and closing to the desired level. By virtue of this ladder system, these slats can be wrapped up one over the other to the top allowing full view. This mechanism of venetian blinds used in window coverings makes the maneuver easy and gives a great look to the interior design. These window blinds and shades were installed in State Empire building owing to its popularity. Vertical blinds were used for larger openings using the same mechanism. The difference is that in venetian blinds the movement is horizontal but here it is traverse. Special synthetic fabric material is preferable in this type of window blinds and shades due to its flexibility, color options and designs. Being a fabric, this offers easy maintenance while retaining a rich look for curtains or window coverings or shade treatments. There would not be any noise generated during movements. Automated window blinds and shades are in use these days making the movements smooth by the flip of a remote control switch. In Britain awnings are also classified as blinds, as they obstruct the view from above. Interestingly, solid blinds are sometimes called shades! They can only be raised or lowered having small spaces in between the slats. In pleated shades, these are absent, as the slats are sewn inside. Cellular blinds otherwise known as Honeycomb Blinds are attributed to their shape. Glued to the side that gives the looks of honeycomb, these are efficient blinds serving as soft alternatives to wood blinds.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds are often used in kitchens and bathrooms and in business offices. Almost always Aluminium Venetian Blinds and sold with 25mm slats. This is due to the flexible nature of the Aluminium slat. Sometimes Aluminium Venetian Blinds are known as Mini Blinds.
Modern blinds for windows resurfaced in the late 18th century, and the evolution of newer and stronger materials and production technology since then have made them as equally popular as their ancient cloth counterparts. The primary functions of window blinds - to provide a screen from external prying eyes, regulate external light, and lock in warmth - still hold true today as they did in the past. Window blinds have become an essential household accessory, not only because the more modern home owner‘s needs have remained unchanged, but also because of improvements in technology that have made window blinds of today equally decorative and functional. Well chosen blinds for windows add a focal splash of colour to, perhaps, a bland living space, while doing the job that was intended. Blinds for windows can easily be categorized into Roman, Venetian, vertical (often called louvre), roller and panel. While they appear to be interchangeable, they are actually designed so that each window blind is best applied to certain window styles.
Safety is the most important factor here. Your blinds should come with safety Chain Guides. It is imperative these are used. It is important to also ensure that Chain Guides are well out of the way of cots, beds and other furniture. Keeping the room dark is often an objective for children‘s bedrooms. Blockout Roller Blind are best suited for this.
