Different types of Window Blinds
Window blinds can help you to open the slats when required and let enough light enter the room. You can close the top slats and leave the bottom slats open so that the sunlight falling on the window is prevented from entering into the room. Window blinds also act as insulators preventing the room from getting over heated in summer and becoming chilling cold in winter months. The different types of blinds include roller blinds, roman blinds, wood blinds, besides horizontal and vertical blinds.
Ways the Different Blinds Work
Venetian blinds are made of horizontal slats either of wood, aluminium and plastic which are connected by cords. The slats can be moved through 180*. Depending on the amount of light you require in a room the slats can be moved to that angle. There are lift cords which pass through slots in the slats which when pulled lift up the lower slats allowing light to come in. There are also vertical window blinds which have a cord to move them to the side.
Window blinds can enhance your room while providing you with privacy that you desire.
