Selection of just the right kind of furniture is very important as it reflects the taste of the home owner. Besides sofas, chairs, tables and lamps, many people tend to ignore the fact that perfect blinds to compliment to the perfect furniture are a necessity.
Those who realize the importance of blinds in their living room, dining room, bedroom, and etc, opt for following five kinds the most:
1. Roman Blinds
The roman blinds are made of fabric material and fold up when these blinds are raised. Roman blinds are usually a single piece which is mounted on the slats. These slats allow the blinds to stack up in horizontal pleats. It is done with the help of a chain or a cord. These blinds are ideally insulated when they are lying flat. Different fabrics, colors and embroidered designs for roman blinds can be selected depending on the room that they will be installed in. for instance, if roman blinds are selected for a girl’s room, a pink or multicolored printed fabric of roman blinds would be ideal.
2. Roller Blinds
The roller blinds also consist of a single material piece, usually fabric. These blinds roll up by using a chain or sometimes a pre-loaded spring. The rollers do not have slats for creation of the supportive backbone meaning that the material will be wrapped around a cylinder which is at the top instead. The top is usually made out of aluminum. This type of blinds are ideal for study rooms, kitchen windows, living room windows and other common sitting places inside house. These blinds add a simple yet classy look to the entire room.
3. Venetian Blinds
These blinds are made up of horizontal slats. The slats can be made out of different materials like vinyl, wood or aluminum. The slats stack together when somebody raises the blind. By rotating slats from top side to the bottom, the venetian blinds provide with more ability to control the lighting inside room. For further control however, slats can be angled also. These blinds are ideal for places where a homeowner wants to control the amount of sunlight entering into the room. It is best to study rooms and for fine drawing rooms especially if they are made out of wood.
4. Louvre blinds or vertical blinds
The louvre blinds are much like the venetian blinds but with a difference that these blinds have vertical slats instead of horizontal ones. These blinds are ideal for sliding doors and large windows and so they are mostly used in places with glass doors and walls with big windows. Most commonly, these blinds are used for doors to the backyard or for the windows of living rooms where partial sunlight is preferred for most times of the day.
5. Panel Blinds
These blinds functionally are just like the vertical blinds because these blinds are also largely used for big windows. However, a track system is used by the panel blinds that let it glide from one side to another. The screen is basically provided by the fabric within the panel. Rather than a door covering or for windows, these blinds can be used as room dividers also.
