You liking one thing does not mean another person will like it the same way. So, we will give you the basic rundown on each kind of window blinds, shades, shutters and draperies that could be suitable for you and what the advantages are.

Here’s a list of some of the advantages of different types of window treatments:

#1. Light Control: A common feature that most people require is the ability to diffuse and or block light. Curtains and Blinds definitely serve this purpose. However, they are limited by their ability to do it one way or another way; not both. Blinds are more effective in this area. Blinds are available with different sizes of slats and the ability to open, close and tilt them in any which way possible. This provides you with a greater control of light over shades and curtains. Curtains are a great way to diffuse light and create a warm glow while shades can be made to either diffuse or completely block light.

#2. Privacy: Privacy is a crucial part of every indoor decor. You don’t want strangers peeking in at any time, especially when in the bathroom. Blinds, as well as shades with the blackout option or liner, are ideal for this purpose. When installed correctly, blinds and shades don’t allow strangers to see into your home. They block the passer by’s eyes and allow you to be safe from prying eyes. Blinds provide an additional benefit when compared to shades; they allow you to configure the slats in such a fashion that you can see out, but no one can see in.

#5. Pattern: Vertical blinds come in many different patterns and textures; bringing a new form of beauty into your home. Gone are the days where a single slat was plain and boring, and we welcome the time where each slat comes in its own uniquely perfected style.

#6. Durability: Blinds are more durable as compared to the other window coverings; especially the faux wood and aluminum blinds. The firmness, sturdiness, and robustness of faux woods make Faux Wood Blinds very durable. Aluminum Blinds are ideal for long-term use since they made from aluminum for maximum durability.

The window over my sink faces to the west, so the light coming in as the sun is setting is really bright and makes it hard for me to work on dinner.
