Most of us overlook the importance of window treatments. But it’s really worth noting that curtains, drapes, blinds, or any other kind of window treatment control the atmosphere within a living space.
Curtains and drapes are much more traditional when compared to blinds, which have much better longevity than any fabric-based window treatments. Also, they are gaining traction in the interior design domain where customers prefer a minimal outlook for their rooms.
Being one of the best blind suppliers in Dubai, Al Nibras has some of the most popular window blind options that are perfect for homes that get plenty of sunlight. Here are some of the well-known benefits of choosing blinds over other forms of window treatments.
Blinds are exceptionally well when it comes to ensuring privacy for occupants within a room. By default, they provide only a partial view for anyone who is on the other side of it, but they also come in variants where you can tilt them or even close them fully.
Wooden blinds can be used on windows that get plenty of sunlight. Most of them can be rolled up too, making it an inexpensive window blind that gets the job done. For the most part, blinds create an obscure view for outsiders while ensuring adequate lighting for space within.
There are few options that come close to blocking light better than blinds. Curtains and drapes do provide a certain level of shade, but motorized blinds and roman blinds can block sunlight significantly more, also providing heavy insulation from external heat or cold.
Blinds are available in all kinds of materials which makes them incredibly affordable for customers. Wooden blinds are cheap, although there are even more synthetic fabrics and other combinations that are inexpensive.
Since they come in thick materials, it is relatively easy to maintain them damage-free for years. Also one of the easiest options to clean periodically, blinds are often used by rental properties due to their hassle-free installation and easy maintenance.
How to decide on a perfect blind for your room
There are several options that you could go for when choosing the right blinds for your living space. Here are some of the most popular choices:
Here are some of the best options you could find today to transform the look and feel of your room in no time:
Roman blinds have a timeless appeal that is difficult to match by curtains or drapes. With the right kind of fabric, they could last for years without fading, and so is a classic choice when it comes to choosing blinds.
They are also perfect for small windows, making them ideal for small rooms and other minimal living spaces. Roman blinds can be hung above windows unlike curtains and are compact by design. Coupled with pale color options, roman blinds can last longer even with intense sunlight.
Panel blinds primarily used in rooms that have large glass windows and can also double up as room partition for homes and offices alike. They can be rolled one behind the other so neatly that they take up very minimum space when fully retracted
Panel blinds are ideally used in commercial spaces with sliding glass doors or windows. Available in a wide range of roller fabric with an infinite number of color options and textures, these are perfect for styling your room for comfortable lighting at all times.
Wooden blinds provide a natural elegance to the room while ensuring proper light protection as well. They come in two main variants – the genuine wood type and the faux wood type.
Genuine wood blinds are relatively lighter and can be made into longer spans for larger windows. Faux wood, on the other hand, can be used in humid conditions in bathrooms and kitchens without degradation. These are also fairly cheap and easy to install, making them an easy option for rooms that need a quick revamp.
Roller blinds are known for their minimal appeal and are a great option for windows of all sizes. They are comparatively cheaper than curtains and are suitable for both residential and commercial buildings.
Having a very minimal design in both looks and operation, roller blinds arguably take the least amount of space out of all the other window blind options. This also makes it a perfect choice for rooms that require a neat and tidy finish when the blinds are fully rolled up.
Vertical blinds are ideally suited for large glass windows that get plenty of sunlight. By design, they can block out the maximum amount of sunlight and even has the option to control the overall lighting within the living space.
Usually, they are found in commercial settings and are available in several different colors and size options. In most cases, the panels of the blinds can be tilted to control the amount of sunlight that’s let into the room. They also come in other options where the blinds can be retracted to one side thereby allowing complete visibility through the windows.
If maximum comfort is your greatest priority, look no further than this. You can have vertical, roller, or panel blinds to be fully motorized to be operated remotely. Most motorized blinds in the market today are extremely quiet in operation and comes with their own set of rechargeable batteries.
With motorized blinds, you can simultaneously control multiple blinds and enjoy more control over the overall lighting of your room. Although the most expensive out of the options discussed so far, they give you the maximum control with the least effort. One important use case for motorized blinds is in hospitals and care homes where the occupants may find it difficult to physically open and close the blinds.
