Concepts of Blinds


The windows of a house or business provide and important connection with the outside world and allow us to meet a number of our basic needs in a way that we often give little real thought to. In the more recent past, cultural values in the UK have required people to adopt and display an awareness and respect for a kind of presentable privacy i.e. with a layer of decorative net curtains providing the main line of defence in the day, and a thick layer of material curtains providing the impenetrable second layer of defence at night. The perceived speed and level of significant and progressive inventions e.g. since the industrial and technological revolutions increased our expectations of how much easier and better our lives ‘should’ be in the modern home. The introduction of modern blinds facilitated a psychological and physical move toward greater ease and a step into the future in our daily lives.

The early concepts of blinds were of something which simply provided a practical halfway house between shutters and curtains. Colours and materials for early pull down blinds were very limited, and often proved not to be particularly practical in some climates and conditions i.e. in areas of the home where there are higher amounts of moisture such as kitchens or bathrooms. Early materials faded easily with the effects of the sun or allowed mildew mould to stain and damage the blinds.

Large scale adoption of blinds in modern public spaces such as schools and libraries allowed many people in the UK for example to become familiar with the concept and use of horizontal blinds. Unfortunately the basic colours and cumbersome materials i.e. white metal blinds, and the relatively troublesome operating systems tarnished the concept of their application in the home. For example, such blinds in large public spaces would often be bent and broken, the string elements tangled and jammed, and the metal slats dented.

Nowadays the operating systems for blinds have been vastly improved, often to the simple, easy turn of a wand. Modern vertical blinds have provided a redefined and improved concept of what blinds actually are and can be. Modern materials mean that almost all manner of patterns, colours, and finishes can be incorporated. Better assembly, customisation options, and the sheer ease of ordering vertical blinds e.g. online, mean that achieving the ideal look and practicality for your home are easier and less expensive than you may think both conceptually and in reality.
