Blinds are a common sight in many of the households, offices, and other spaces where people need privacy and protection from sun. Apart form using at windows, blinds are now used for doors and outdoor purposes too. Many people still have doubts about whether blinds needed to be considered while planning for interior decoration. Here, we will try to explore a few points why blinds are necessary in terms of maintaining an ideal room interior.
Blinds are Protection to Home
Basically, window screens acts as sunscreens to block out sunlight, heat, and other environmental elements, which may potentially be harmful to human. The new-age eco blinds do not get degraded by heat or wet, which makes it an ideal choice for window shielding. Wooden blinds are a bit sensitive to environment, but the Venetian blinds made of PVC and plastic offering faux wood look can sustain any such conditions.
Heat and moisture getting into your home can not only damage your furniture, but also can damage the electronic equipment inside. Home curtains serve the same purpose; however, blinds have an upper hand as you can let enough light and heat inside whenever needed. With blinds, you can have personalized control on light and heat.
Controlling Shade and Brightness
Unlike curtains, blinds allow to keep in the right amount of shade or sunlight as you like. Different people will be having different tastes and blinds have customizable options to set. Venetian blinds are ideal for this. Blinds with rotating slats can give control over shading, brightness, heat, and the new model blinds even have the capability to custom set the angle and direction of the light getting in.
Another option with blinds is the usage of blockout blinds, which are also called as screen blinds. These can blockout the sun completely. There are options to install dual-roller blinds. These types of blinds can act as both sunscreen and roller blinds fixed on the same bracket with one-behind-another configuration. These are also called double roller blinds, which you can use to set the temperature based on the timings of the day.
Blinds can offer perfect shield to your room from being viewed from outside. Blinds are very useful in rooms which have larger windows to block the view from outside. Both roller and Venetian blinds offer extreme privacy and blockout rollers can block even sunlight getting in, making your room space completely private. Moreover, blinds can be custom operated to be half open or full open whenever required and unlike curtains, it can be operated only from inside.
Blinds vs. curtains
Well, curtains also can cover up windows, but these can be easily blown away by wind leaving the windows exposed. Blinds have the property to block wind as being more sturdy. Unlike curtains, window blinds are also anchored to the bottom and sides of the window which makes them more resistant to wind. Blinds are also more durable and classier in looks when compared to curtains.
