Wide Assortment of Blinds

Blinds are window treatments that "blind" a person's view in or out of an area. Usually slat blinds are what people think of when they think of blinds.

Slat blinds have been most commonly horizontal blinds, where the slats are fixed horizontally into the blinds and the slats can tilt up and down to allow varying degrees of light and visibility. Another type of slat blinds is the vertical blind. Vertical blinds are slats that connect to the top of the blind and hang vertically. Other blinds, such as bamboo shades, cellular shades, and solid shades are usually included in the category of shades rather than blinds even though they actually are a type of blinds. Shades do "blind" a person's view in or out of an area, though, so technically they are blinds.

All types of blinds are extremely popular for household window treatments. Blinds come in so many varieties, styles, textures, and colors that they can fit any home's décor. Slats for horizontal or vertical blinds can be metal, wood, cloth, PVC backed cloth, or PVC. Shades can be pleated, cellular, vinyl, or of woven wood.

People who prefer the more traditional look of drapery usually prefer to have some kind of blind beneath the drapery to block out the light that drapes cannot. Furthermore, many vertical blinds do offer the more traditional look of drapery without the exorbitant cost of drapery.
