If you want window coverings that will last forever, then aluminum blinds are the way to go. They go well in any room in your house and can create a lovely ambiance, particularly because you can color coordinate them with the rest of your décor. They are incredibly durable and come in various types, including mini blinds, vertical blinds and Venetian blinds. Because of their versatility, they won’t look out of place in any room.
Details about Aluminum Blinds
Aluminum blinds cost marginally more than their vinyl counterparts, but they are much cheaper than wooden models. Most of these blinds come with one inch slats, although some Venetian models with last of two or three inches also exist. You can literally choose from hundreds of different patterns and colors as well, so you are guaranteed to find the one that suits you. Plus, you can choose blinds that block out almost all light, or blinds that allow some light to come through.
Furthermore, if you have an oddly shaped window or a window or door that is too large or too narrow for standard size blinds, you can have aluminum models custom made. Another new advancement in technology in the world of blinds is that they now come in motorized versions. This means that you simply press a button in order to open or close the blinds themselves. Beside this being more convenient, it also means the blinds are safer. Most importantly, however, they are very easy to install and you won’t need a professional to come do it for you.
Aluminum blinds are also great in terms of energy efficiency. They have a very high rating, which means less heat is lost during the cold winter months. At the same time, however, they provide shade and coolness when the sun is out during the summer. Indeed, some manufacturers now make aluminum blinds that also have an additional UV absorption rating. Plus, all aluminum blinds form a kind of sound barrier. Do make sure, however, that you choose blinds with slats that are large enough for the window on which they are used. The larger the window, the wider your slats should be. You always have the ability to raise and lower these blinds as much as you want, so you have full control over how much light can come into your property.
In terms of colors, you also have a wealth of choices available to you. Some are matte, others are metallic, others still with a low gloss. They come in solid colors, but there are now also blinds with pattern designs. You can install them inside the window facings themselves so that you can continue to see your window frame if it is a particularly beautiful one. And if you don’t like to see the top of the blinds, where they gather together, you can purchase a valance to cover it, matching this with the rest of your décor. Indeed, aluminum blinds can help you achieve any look you want.
