Window blinds are one of the most durable and versatile options for controlling the flow of light into your home. These sturdy slats of solid material are ideal for a living room or kitchen, and are one of many products available at Blinds and Drapery Showroom. To get the best model for your home, here are the most frequently asked questions about Havertown, PA window blinds you should know before you make your purchase.
How Are Window Blinds Controlled?
Window blinds are made up of vertical or horizontal slats of wood, metal, or synthetic material that are connected by cords and hung like a curtain over your window. They can be tilted to let the light in more through the slats, closed flat to offer more protection, or raised to expose the full light to the room in the midday. The movement of the blinds can be controlled either with a manual twist or with a remote control.
Are Your Window Blinds Energy Efficient?
As people become more concerned with the environment and want to save money in the process, many companies have adapted their window blinds to conserve energy. These cellular shades have cell pockets built in that trap the air around your window, creating a better seal against the window. Your house stays cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and you save money on your energy bills.
Do Window Blinds Require Professional Installation?
This depends on how handy you are with basic tools and whether you’re installing a new set of blinds or a replacement in an existing apparatus. A set of blinds can easily be installed into a pre-existing window setup, while setting up a new blinds holder and the slats will require more work. When you shop at Blinds and Drapery Showroom, you’ll have the option to add professional installation to your order.
What Areas of the House are Blinds Best For?
Blinds are ideal for areas where you want the control to frequently open, close, and adjust to control the flow of light in the room. Blinds can be large enough to cover the window of a living room, or smaller for a kitchen window where you want to add light when cooking. The best places for blinds are those where you’ll want total privacy during some times of the day, and bright light during others, as blinds offer more control and variability than any other window cover.
What Designs Are Available for Blinds?
Blinds are one of the more straightforward window covers in designs, being made up of multiple slats with a uniform design. However, at our showroom we have a wide variety of colors available to best complement your room’s style and add an attractive accent when they’re closed. The surface of blinds is usually smooth, but other materials are also available in specialty models.
