Choosing the Right Blinds

When it comes to decorating with blinds in Youngstown Ohio, you have a variety of choices to make your home look just like you want it to. The Blind Shop offers a multitude of blinds in both horizontal and vertical orientation that looks amazing and can add the right amount of natural sunlight and privacy you’re looking for. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a window blind.


Window treatments that require a lot of maintenance when being cleaned or opened tend to deter you from using them, which is why choosing the right blind for your windows is important. First, consider the type of window you are trying to cover and how often you plan to open or close it. If it is hard to reach you may want to consider remote controlled operating systems such as the Hunter Douglas PowerView™ Motorization. Also consider how often you will be using the blinds and how much maintenance it will take to clean them. For example, faux wood blinds are more resilient to water and sunlight than real wood blinds, making them a great choice for people who want the look of real wood without the hassle. New finishes allow fabric and aluminum blinds to resist dust better and maintain a new look longer.

Types of Windows

Selecting the right blind for the right window is not only visually appealing but it also helps to serve the main purpose of providing your home with privacy and light control. The type of blind you select should be strongly based on the types of windows you’re attempting to cover. A bedroom or bathroom window, for example, will need much more privacy and light control than a living area or kitchen. Large windows and sliding glass doors are normally covered with vertical blinds that connect at the top. Tall windows often look nice in a vertical blind as well. It is possible in many instances to combine vertical and horizontal blinds in the same area of the home. You can also mix and match window treatments. For example, our Skyline Gliding Window Panels are offered in the same fabric as other window treatments like Roller Shades to create a cohesive look throughout your room or home.

Be Creative

When choosing a window treatment for your home, it’s important to incorporate your own personal style along with an efficient blind for proper coverage. You can still be creative yet functional by adding flair to your treatments with vivid colors, tapes and trims.
