Anyone who has ever set themselves down only to find they have a direct line into the sun knows the importance of window blinds. Not only do they shade the light, they also provide privacy and can be a significant part of your home’s interior design. Unsure which kind to get? Take a look at the below list containing the most popular types of window blinds for your home:

Vertical (Track) Blinds – These blinds are made from vertical hanging slats that move back and forth and can be twisted to allow sun in or to keep it out. These types of blinds are most commonly used over larger sliding doors or windows typically leading to the outdoors.

Roller Blinds – Much like their namesake, roller blinds are made of a thick fabric or plastic that roll up or down with the pull of a string. As they are one solid piece, they have the ability to block out the most amount of light, making them ideal for bedrooms.

Roman Blinds – Similar to roller blinds in that they are rolled up and down using a string but instead of rolling up into the top, the fabric folds over itself creating a luxurious and refined look.

Venetian Blinds – The most common type of blind, Venetian blinds are made from horizontal slats bound together with string that can be controlled to move the slats up or down and rotated accordingly to allow sun in. Because they come in a variety of materials such as plastic, aluminum and wood, venetian blinds are versatile enough for any room in the house.

Austrian (Ballon) Blinds – The most dramatic of the bunch, Austrian shades are made of lightweight fabric sewn in vertical sections that billow out when pulled up and display a ruffling effect when let down.

Although they are a great way to add character to your home, installing blinds in your home can be an arduous task.
