Custom blinds are the most cost efficient window treatments. Blinds come in both horizontal and vertical forms. They can fit in virtually any window or door opening. The three most common blind types are: mini blinds, horizontal blinds, and vertical blinds. Blinds are very popular in residential homes as well in commercial buildings. Outdoor treatments are also part of the blinds window treatment category. Outdoor treatments such as awnings, outdoor shades, and rolling shutters work great for blocking the sun during the summer heat and can protect your home from weather conditions such as wind and sun damage.
Not much changed in the blinds shape for several years now but we start to see more fabrication technologies merging in the window coverings industry such as composite materials with longer life span. Hunter Douglas Everwood ™ horizontal Collection has more light weight and durable slats with great colors that can replace the real wood collection.
