Updated: Jul 12
Critical factors to consider when purchasing blinds are light control, privacy, energy savings, and ease of use which could mean adding motorization depending on how accessible the windows are. Did you know that Hunter Douglas honeycomb blinds were invented to help manage energy costs during the energy crisis of the 1970s? Read on for more about three design styles and to determine the best one for you.
Option One: Versatile & Beneficial Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds of today come in much different wood or faux wood styles to match your design. This is a beautiful, affordable, and classic option to control light and privacy. They're easy to tilt and raise up and lower down, and many newer options are cordless. Cordless is becoming an industry standard for the safety of children and pets.
Option Two: Modern & Adaptable Motorized Blinds
Motorized blinds are excellent choices for those out-of-reach windows. It's also an excellent solution at the build stage, as they can be wired right into your home when the electrician wires the home. They come with both a remote control and an app that makes it easy to control whether you're home or not. Typically you'll see the honeycomb shades motorized, with beautiful fabrics to match your decor and available to add warmth, privacy, and room darkening options for the bedrooms.
Option #3: Flexible & Beautiful Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are perfect for large sliding doors or large windows. They provide a clean, streamlined, and classic look that can be completely folded to the side of each window so as not to block your view when you'd like them opened. Vertical honeycomb shades also are available in light filtering or room darkening and are very easy to use, opening and closing seamlessly.
