/ standard versions are widely available from home / DIY
stores and from local home and soft furnishing shops. Horizontal
Blinds use horizontal slats which can be angled to allow
the required amount of light into the room. On of
the main drawbacks of these is that fact that they have
a tendency to trap dust on the surface of the slats. Roller
Blinds can be very tidy and as the name suggests they consist
of a sheet of fabric / material housed on a rolling tube.
The blind can then be pulled down to partially or completely
cover the window. Herein lies one of the main drawbacks
of the roller blind. In order to shade the room e.g. from
bright sunlight the roller blind will need to be pulled
quite far down thus actually obscuring the view outside
and cutting out much of the natural daylight along with
the glare. Roman blind use a piece of folded, pleated, or
gathered materiel which can be folded up or let down. As
with roller blinds the outside view and much of the natural
light is sacrificed to an extent.
provide a very balanced, practical and versatile solution
combined with a neat and modern look. As the name suggests
use a series of vertical slats which can be easily angled
to allow just the right amount of light in whilst protecting
from glare and obscuring the view into your home from the
outside. Since vertical
blinds are made from uniformly spaced slats they allow
light into the room all across the surface of the window
from top to bottom. Instead of just obscuring the window
space they allow the gentle reflection of light into the
room thus making the most of valuable natural daylight.
Their washable slats, flexibility of use and easy installation
make vertical blinds
a practical, aesthetically pleasing option which has the
edge over curtains and many other types of blinds.
