Guide to the Different Types of Blinds

Types of Blinds

Blinds are available in many different types and styles. They can be made from a wide range of materials, including wood, plastic, aluminium and vinyl. Here’s a great guide to some of the most common types:

Roller Blinds

The most common type of blind is a roller blind. Roller blinds work by rolling up on a rod when you want them out of the way, and rolling down when you want to use them. These are simple and easy to use, but they do take up space in your window once they’re rolled down, so they may not be ideal if you have a large window or if you have lots of light coming through your windows.

These are made from slats that roll up and down behind a fabric or plastic cover. The material is held together by an elastic band attached to the top and bottom slat. Roller blinds are often used in bathrooms or kitchens where they can be opened to let light in while still keeping privacy.

Faux Wood Blinds

These look like real wood blinds but are actually made from vinyl or other synthetic materials that have been painted to resemble real wood grain. Blinds come in many different finishes so that you can get a high-quality look at an affordable price.

Vertical Blinds

Like roller blinds, vertical blinds have several horizontal slats that roll up and down behind a fabric covering. Unlike roller blinds, however, these are usually installed on tracks that allow them to be adjusted for light control and privacy at any height along the window frame rather than just rolling up and down vertically as one solid piece like roller shades do.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are another popular option due to their versatility and functionality. These come with either vertical or horizontal slats that can be adjusted using a cord control system similar to roller blinds (although they tend not to be as easy to operate). Venetian blinds provide excellent privacy while still allowing light through them – perfect if you want some light without sacrificing privacy!

These aren’t as flexible as roller blinds because they don’t roll up or down easily, but they do provide better light control than other types of blinds do because all the slats are tilted open at once instead of just one or two at a time like most other types of blinds do when they’re opened or closed.

Roman Blinds

These offer a more decorative look than other types of blinds, but they’re also more expensive because of their unique design options. They’re available in both manual and electric versions so you can choose what suits your needs best!

Panel Blinds

Panel blinds are made up of panels that can be opened or closed by either sliding them or rotating them like a Venetian blind. They’re commonly used in offices because they provide privacy while being able to see through them.

Pleated Shade

The final type is a pleated shade. This type doesn’t have any moving parts, but instead uses pleats (pleated) fabric that is folded and clipped together to create an adjustable shade.
