What is the Purpose of Window Blinds?

Window shades are not just a handy way to increase the privacy of a room, they are a great way to control both lighting and temperature. Window blinds ensure a cooler temperature, at the same time optimizing natural light transmission from the outside, illuminating a room. 

Window blinds give you greater control over how much light comes into a room, as you can choose to cover your whole window, or only a portion, depending on your needs. Another big advantage of installing window blinds is that it allows you to control how much light comes into the house. Not only do the blinds control how much light gets into your office, but they can also reduce heat up to 45 per cent, making your office more energy efficient. 

Using window blinds to lower room temperature, removes the need for using the air conditioning unit to reduce room temperature, thereby saving energy. Since blinds easily regulate how much light comes into the room, keeping them open during winter, which allows the light to come through, helps to keep the room warmer, while closing them during the summer helps to keep the room cooler. Besides this, blinds can prevent too much light from entering the room, thus protecting your furniture against fading, making it last longer. 

Since you can close blinds all around, it may make it harder for a criminal to peer in through your windows. They give you a layer of privacy you cannot get with other window treatments, like curtains. Shoji Blinds can stack on one or both sides of the window, either in the recessed area or out, and are often used as room dividers or closet doors.

Blinds are heavier than shades and will have more stacking on the top of the window compared with other products. Horizontal blinds can fully raise the top of your windows, giving you a clean, open look to the outdoors. Window blinds can be operated by either a manual or a remote, rotating them from the open position, where the slats are spread apart, to a closed position, where the slats are overlapped and block out much of the light. 

Control of motorised blinds can be by wall switches or keypads, a remote, or a computer, eliminating the need for wires and allowing for the operation of windows that are otherwise out of reach. Whether you prefer the morning sunlight in all its glory, the filtered light, or complete darkness, a blind allows you to manage how bright your room is. The solution to glare is using the right window blinds to create shade that blocks out intense light while not interfering with your vision.
