When you are considering window coverings, it can be difficult to decide what exactly the best fit for your home will be. There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to window treatments, and the possibilities are endless. One of the most popular choices in window treatments is window blinds. A classic blind is always a smart choice, as they can be adjusted to allow just the right amount of light into a room while still giving you privacy.
Why Use Window Blinds?
Window blinds are a versatile, durable and trendy window treatment option that provides unmatched flexibility for privacy and light control.
Window Blinds are a good alternative to more traditional window treatments like drapes and curtains. A beautiful window blind can allow you to minimize the amount of light that enters your home. This means you will be able to control how much natural light you let into the room, while still maintaining privacy in your home.
What Are The Different Types Of Window Blinds?
There are many different types of window blinds. From fabric shades to wooden blinds, the materials used can vary widely. Gone are the days where blinds were either flimsy plastic strips or clunky vertical blinds with no shape. Modern blinds come in various materials and designs and there are many different colors and textures to choose from.
A window blind is made up of several long horizontal or vertical slats made of various types of hard material, including wood, alternative engineered wood materials or tempered alloy metal, which are held together by cords that run through the blind slats. Window blinds can be maneuvered with either a manual or remote control by rotating them from an open position, with slats spaced out, to a closed position where slats overlap and block out most of the light. At Innuwindow, our window blinds can be customized to complement your home’s color scheme, decor, and trim.
How Much Does It Cost To Install Window Blinds?
The cost of window blind installation will vary depending on the blinds that you choose, as well as the number of windows and rooms that you are planning to cover. Innuwindow will be able to give you an estimate on cost, and they will measure and customize your blinds so that they fit perfectly in your windows.
What Are Standard Sizes For Window Blinds?
While there are various sizes of windows, the standard sizes are 36, 48, 60, 72 and 84 inches wide and 24, 36, 48, and 60 inches in height. Chances are that your home contains mostly standard size windows, but, when fitting blinds, the openings should always be measured by an expert because the the trim, finishing, age, and window design can all effect how your window treatment will fit. You may also have some non-traditional window shapes as well, such as arched, bow windows, or even skylights. Windows that have a non-traditional shape or size can present a challenge when choosing window treatments but Innuwindow’s specialized team can customize any window treatment to fit your needs.
What Blinds Are Best For Wide Windows?
Wide windows can be problematic for homeowners, especially if you’re looking for something other than the traditional curtain rod and drapes. There are some blinds that are well suited for wider windows, however, the wider the blind the heavier and more difficult it will be to operate. In general though, traditional blinds are made only up to 96” wide. If you have a wider opening such as a double or triple window it might be wiser to install multiple blinds that hang side by side. Faux wood blinds can work well for longer windows. The material is built to withstand damage from moisture and other outside influences, meaning that the longer blinds won’t bend or bow. Innuwindow experts can advise you as to the best blind for your window and they can customize the blinds that you like to fit your wide windows.
