The Many Advantages of Vertical Blinds
Blinds are necessary to make our homes comfortable, but we don’t really give that much thought to the Many Advantages of Vertical Blinds.
Vertical blinds in particular are economically one of the better ways to help control the temperature in both summer and winter, whilst also adding a decorative finish to your home or office.
By controlling the amount of light that comes in, vertical blinds can save you money in many ways.
The rays of the sun are magnified when they pass through glass.
Those of us with large sized windows know just how much sun can pour through them during the day. This is great in the winter months for warming up the room, however not so great at other times of the year.
The sun can do a lot more damage than just making the room hot. The sun’s rays can fade and damage furniture and floor treatments.
Continued exposure to the sun can actually destroy carpets, lounges, chairs and other upholstery type furniture. Vertical blinds can reduce this greatly. The vertical blind can reduce, divert and even completely block the rays of the sun.
All these things contribute to reduced energy expenses as you are better able to make use of natural sunlight during the day to illuminate rooms and make air conditioning systems a lot more efficient
Many people choose vertical blinds because they are a more affordable option than curtains. Curtains can be a very beautiful addition to any home and an eye catching and dramatic addition to your home, but they can also be very expensive.
If you don’t have a huge budget for window coverings but you want something that looks great and will allow you to keep light out and preserve your privacy at the same time.
Vertical blinds are also great for reducing outside noise which represents one of its most overlooked benefits. With these blinds it’s easy to find the right angle that presents the perfect combination of heat and noise insulation as well as privacy and natural illumination.
So, to sum it up . . .
- Reduce sun damage to furniture and carpets
- Control internal temperature
- Reduce energy costs
- Reduce glare
- Reduce outside noise
- Adjustable to all angles for best effect
- Privacy while preserving the view
- More affordable than curtains
Their simple construction, along with the flexibility, privacy, light control and insulation they provide, makes them a practical choice for covering your windows.
As with most types of window treatments, vertical blinds come in a variety of sizes, colours, and materials.
Vertical blinds can be made from fabrics or cedar.
Selecting vertical blinds with the right material can accomplish two things. First, it helps ensure the blinds will complement the existing design elements in the space. Second, it can influence the level of privacy, light control, and insulation that the window coverings can provide.
Colour is another important factor to take into account when selecting vertical blinds. While this particular element may seem like an afterthought, it can actually make or break the appearance of your space.
The key to finding the right colour for your vertical blinds is to have it compliment or coordinate with another accent piece in your room, such as the wall colour or specific décor item.
