Styles of Blinds
Venetian blinds are going to be the most common blind that you see when you go to people homes. When hear the word “blinds” this is what you more then likely picture. Horizontal slates that are attached one to another that can be open or closed to any degree. Venetian blinds go great in any home or office and you wont be disappointed on their look or performance.
Roman blinds are blinds that are made out of a soft fabric that can be opened or closed. Roman blinds tend to look more “fancy” then Venetian blinds but they both do the same thing, and that is to keep the sun out. Roman blinds look like drapes on the window but they also have the perk of being able to open and closed unlike normal drapes.
Vertical blinds look almost identical to Venetian blinds; the difference is that instead of horizontal slates you have vertical slates. With Vertical blinds you can choose how much sunlight you want to come into a room just like the Venetian blinds.
Roller blinds are made out of a fabric that rolls into a tube when you want sunlight to come through your window. So instead of having slates you have a fabric that rolls vertically to any desired height. Roller blinds look great and are very simple to use.
There are so many different styles of blinds out there that it can be difficult to find what is just right for your home. You will not be disappointed in any style of blinds that you go with; they all do the same thing, they just look different doing it.

Tips Getting The Right Blinds
This is the perfect to invest in some blinds, due to the fact that summer is just around the corner. There are many different reasons why to put blinds on your windows; they protect the room from heating up from the sun, keep out prying eyes, and add a specific look to a room. By choosing the perfect blind you can eliminate all of these problems. They come in all different styles, shapes and sizes all depending on the purpose of what you are looking for, so choosing the right kind of blind is very important to its functionality.
A good place to start is deciding on what materials you want your blinds to made of; Blinds can range from metal, wood, plastic, and fabric, it is all up to you. The metal blinds are usually the most secure when it comes to thieves and home fires. So you live in a “bad” neighborhood you might want to consider the metal ones over the other types.
Shape is also a big factor when choosing your blind; blinds can operate two different ways, horizontal and vertical. Meaning the slats will be up and down or side to side; both work and look great it just depends on what you want.
If you want to put blinds in a hard to reach area or you just don’t want to manually adjust your blinds; you can put automatic blinds installed. Will just a touch of a button you can open and close your blinds to the desire you want. This is great if you do not want to manually open or close all at once. Of course automatic blinds cost more, but are worth it in the long run.
Choosing the right blind can be easy if you just focus on the style, materials, and shape that you desire. Always feel free to call we would love to help answer any questions you might have regarding your blinds.

New window blinds will give your room a great new look to help block light and provide some added privacy. These days you can buy blinds in many different colors and styles. Every blind is different too so make sure to buy ones that fit your homes style and your personality. Blinds come in many different styles such as traditional horizontal blinds, vertical blinds, energy efficient blinds, black out shades, no pull cord blinds and remote controlled blinds. Measuring blinds is easy. For this project you will need a tape measure, a pencil and a ladder.
There are two ways to install blinds, inside mounted and outside mounted. Inside mounted sit inside the window and outside mounted are attached to the frame or the wall.
Measuring inside mounted blinds is simple. Figure out if the window being measured is deep enough for inside mounted blinds first. Measure horizontally at the inside top, middle and bottom. Choose the smallest measurement so the blind clears the frame. Next, measure vertically on the inside left, middle and right of the window. Take the largest measurement and round to the nearest 1/8”.
For outside mounted blinds measure the distance to the nearest 1/8″ between the outermost points where the blinds will be placed. Next measure the desired height. Add an extra 1 1/2” above and below for optimum light control. If you are using a wall mount hang about 2″ from the top sill of the window.
Vertical blinds may also be an option for you. These are great for sliding doors or wide doorways. Measure the width of the door or window and add 4″ to each side. Measure the height where the head rail will be placed, typically 3″ above the sill. Measure from the rail to the bottom floor sill.
