Blinds refer to a hard treatment constructed from slats or vanes that are adjustable via a manual pull cord. However, blinds are also used to describe window coverings in general. They include almost all types of window coverings, such as roller blinds, blinds, and shades.

Below are the most common and fashionable types of blinds.

1. Venetian blinds

These types of blinds are by far the best known and used. Venetian blinds have horizontal slats placed one on top of the other and attached with a cord. When turned, the slats move in sync. It is this rope cord mechanism that allows the blinds to be fully closed, partially opened, or fully opened. Venetian blinds are usually made of plastic, but they also come in aluminum and other metals. They are very versatile and can work well in any room.

2. Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds work the same way as Venetian blinds, only instead of a horizontal pull system, it offers a vertical pull system. Vertical blinds are ideal for windows and doors that open to a slider patio or large windows. They also offer the same amount of light control as venetian blinds. Vertical blinds also collect less dust and are easy to clean.

3. Wood and faux wood blinds

These types of blinds are basically wooden or imitation wood Venetian blinds, so they also use the system of slats and ropes to open and close. Wood and faux wood are gaining in popularity due to their visual impact. Wood or imitation wood gives a clearly rustic atmosphere to the interior of the house. Plus, faux wood is also less expensive and susceptible to moisture problems, making it a better choice for kitchens and bathrooms.

4. Cellular/Honeycomb Screens

Cellular blinds are best known for their ability to keep a room insulated. When viewed from the side, you can see that these blinds are diamond-shaped cells commonly made of a lightweight, cloth-like material. However, with this type of blind, you can only get a full view of the outside when it’s fully raised. Unlike venetian blinds, honeycomb blinds do not have adjustable slats. However, it still allows a comfortable amount of natural light in while providing privacy for homeowners.

5. Solar/roller blinds

These indoor blinds are a one-piece design built on a metal pole that is powered by a side chain. This design completely blocks sunlight when closed and allows all light in when open. It protects the room from harmful UV rays and gives it a stylish and contemporary atmosphere.
