You know you need blinds to turn down the sun’s brightness certain times during the day. But how do you choose? Here are some tips to guide you through the process:
How Much Light Do You Want to Let In?
Shades and window blinds come in a variety of options when it comes to light control. In your bedroom, you may want a blockout window treatment that blocks most of the sun’s rays. If you have an irregular work schedule or if your room’s windows face the early morning sun, these blinds will probably be the best choice for you.
On the other hand, if you only want to filter out some of the light, such as in your kitchen or dining room, light filtering blinds may be a better option. In these rooms, you want sunlight to illuminate the space so you can see better, but you don’t want the sun’s full glare staring you in the face over breakfast.
Slats or No Slats?
When you have blinds with slats, you can choose the level of light you want in the room. You can even adjust their tilt to see what’s happening outside, yet still, control the level of light in the room.
Venetian or Sliding Panel Blinds, both with slats, work well to adjust the light level. Sliding Panel Blinds are especially appropriate when you have sliding doors that you need to access at will. All you need to do is to slide them back, and you can step outside.
If, however, you want energy-efficient blinds, the trim, tailored look of Roller blinds or elegant Roman blinds, you won’t be able to adjust the level of sight or light with slats. You’ll need to pull the blinds up at least part way to see out of the window.
