What are Blinds?

A window blind is a type of window covering. There are many different kinds of window blinds which use a variety of control systems

Temperature Control

For those who do not have access to some type of air conditioner or heater for your home, take advantage of temperature control blinds. Not all blinds are designed for temperature control but there are custom blinds that can be made to work with you and your specific home.

In the winter, custom blinds can be designed to trap the heat from the sun’s rays. The trapped heat is then released into your home, keeping it nice and warm during the colder months of the year, without the need for an expensive alternative.

In the summer, if you want to keep your house cool try using solid white blinds. The colour of the blinds acts as a mirror, reflecting the sun’s rays away from your home. This reflection concept is what keeps your house cool during the long summer months. You do not need to keep the blinds closed all the way for this to happen, but the wider your blinds are opened, the more heat will pass through and into your home.

Sunlight Control

Blinds are most commonly used to control the amount of sunlight that enters a room. All styles of blinds can do this so there is no need to worry about that.

Vertical blinds (used for large, tall windows/glass doors) are designed to rotate from side to side, allowing for more or less sunlight to enter the room. They can also be pulled to one side to expose the door or window entirely.

Horizontal blinds are designed to allow the vanes (panels) to be rotated open or closed as well as raised or lowered to allow more or less sunlight to pass through the window and into the room.

Privacy Control

Blinds are also commonly used as a means of privacy control. All types of blinds can be used for this purpose as well as in coherence with sunlight control. You can increase or decrease the amount of privacy by adjusting the vanes (panels) of the blinds up and down, left and right, and open or closed.

For more privacy, keep the blinds down and closed completely. For less privacy, such as during a social gathering, keep the window or door fully exposed or adjust the blinds accordingly to fit your desired amount of privacy.
