There are so many different types of window coverings, it can be difficult to tell the difference in them. This can be especially challenging when it comes to deciding how you want to decorate your home and cover your own windows.
What are the options?
Well, amongst all of them, vertical blinds and roller blinds are some of the most versatile in terms of both fashion and function. Let’s jump in and take a look at some of the unique benefits of both vertical blinds and roller blinds.
What are the unique benefits of vertical blinds? Vertical blinds are some of the most affordable and simply designed window coverings for controlling light in a room.
Benefits of Vertical Blinds
1) Design Functionality
When most people think of vertical blinds, they think of the simple plastic or PVC blinds that hang in front of your windows or the large glass sliding doors in your house. The truth is, vertical blinds come in a much greater variety of designs, and textures than that, and are something that you can use just about anywhere in your home. They are great for large patio doors and big windows in your house.
One of the reasons that many people love vertical blinds is due to the fact that they are really low maintenance. They are incredibly easy to wipe down and clean, which give you the ability to clean your blinds in a matter of minutes or even seconds. The vertical nature of the blinds add height to your room and can make your ceiling seem higher, adding a spacious effect to the room you use them in.
2) Light Control
Most vertical blinds are controlled by a wand, which makes them really easy to rotate either open or closed. Many vertical blind owners love them because they can provide varying degrees of light control. Unlike curtains, drapes, and other window coverings. You can crack them to let in a little light, you can fully open your blinds, or you can slide them fully out of the way of your window to bring in the maximum amount of light possible. Fully close them if you need a little shade and privacy
3) Variety of Materials
Another great aspect of vertical blinds is that you can get them in a variety of materials. If you are on a budget and want to add blinds to your home, you can stick with the classic PVC which is both functional and cost effective. You can also get vertical blinds in faux wood or fabric if you want to splurge for something a little nicer.
Roller blinds are a type of blinds that completely roll and unroll to cover or unveil your window. They are typically made out of a single, solid piece of fabric that is held by a casing at the top of your window frame. When you roll up your roller blinds, they roll up into the case to let light through your windows. Roller blinds provide another simple, affordable, and convenient way to spruce up your windows and your home.
Bay windows are excellent for roller blinds, but you can also see them in bathrooms and other areas in your home as well.
Benefits of Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are a high utility window covering that you can find in a lot of places, ranging from homes to businesses, grocery stores, coffee shops, and other public buildings.
1) Cost Effective
There is little complexity to the design of roller blinds. Most of them are simple to hang up and operate, which make them very affordable. Roller blinds are great for anyone who is looking for great window coverings, on a budget. They are also durable, and can last years without any wear and tear.
2) Easy to use
The pull cords and chains that are connected to roller blinds make them really easy to use. You can open and close them in a matter of seconds, which is why roller blinds are one of the most popular choices for window coverings.
3) Blackout blinds
Thinking of hanging your roller blinds in the bedroom? Blackout roller blinds are great for blocking out light entirely, and are a great way to get the best sleep quality possible.
4) Cleaning roller blinds
Roller blinds are quick and easy to clean because they are made of one solid piece of fabric.
