Window Blinds


A window cover is a versatile type of curtain covering. There are hundreds of different styles of window covers that use other control systems to allow you to control the amount of light entering your room. You can choose a simple blind that will only let in minimal light, or you can choose a more elaborate type of blind that can even block out sunlight.


The most common type of window blinds is wood blinds. 

There are several different types of wood that you can choose from depending on what color you want and how much care and maintenance you want for your blinds. 

Basic wooden blinds consist of several horizontal or vertical slits of different materials, such as wood, metal, or plastic, held in place by ropes that run from the bottom of the blinds to the slats on top. These ropes are usually made of a chain or a hook and are attached to the slats on either side of the wood blind.

A disadvantage of wooden blinds is the amount of cleaning and maintenance that you have to do. If you live in an area with a lot of humidity or have wood shingles on the roof, your wood blinds may need to replace sooner than others. 

You may also have to refinish your wood blinds more often. Wood blinds are available in many different sizes and can easily cut down to any shape you desire.


Another type of vertical blind that is very popular is the bi-fold. 

When looking for vertical blinds, you have more options when choosing which ones to buy. There is one popular style that is commonly referred to as a fold or double-hung window cover.
