What windows are horizontal blinds
most suited for?
Horizontal blinds are often more suited for the smaller
window or one where you need to keep the glare of the sun
off of a computer screen. They are also used as shutters
outside of the window to provide a safety feature which
can be locked. Horizontal blinds are frequently used to
help keep out the sun in conservatories as these can easily
be put into grooves in the ceiling to reduce the sunshine
depending on the design of the conservatory roof.
The pros and cons of Horizontal Blinds
Horizontal blinds like vertical blinds are very practical
whether used in the home, factory or office. They are not
quite so easy to clean as vertical blinds and unlike vertical
blinds, individual slats are not easy to replace if damaged.
Horizontal blinds are more likely to be damaged in caught
in a wind than vertical blinds frequently due to the type
if fabric often used such as PVC and aluminium etc. In the
same manner as the vertical blinds, horizontal blinds also
offer insulation qualities when drawn thus helping to keep
the room warm. Conversely, when it is hot they can help
to keep the room call when shut. The slats overlap closely
and when shut they create an insulating pocket between the
window and the room. However as the header tends to be thicker
than the vertical blinds, when drawn up, they take up more
of the window.
