Looking for Window Blinds? These Are 10 Types of Windows Blinds You Need to Know

What Is a Window Blind & Different Types:

A window blind is a type of window covering. There are many kinds of window blinds which use a variety of control systems. A typical window blind is made up of several long horizontal or vertical slats of various types of hard material, including wood, plastic or metal which are held together by cords that run through the blind slats.

Vertical blinds run along a track system which can tilt open and closed and move side-to-side. Window blinds can be maneuvered with either a manual or remote control by rotating them from an open position, with slats spaced out, to a closed position where slats overlap and block out most of the light. There are also several types of window coverings, called shades, that use a single piece of soft material instead of slats.

The term window blinds can also be used to describe window coverings more broadly. In this context window blinds include almost every type of window covering, whether it is a hard or soft material, i.e., shutters, roller shades, cellular shades (also called honeycomb shades), wood blinds, Roman shades, standard vertical, and horizontal blinds (also called Venetians).

Start your search right now. We’ve covered everything from Vertical Blinds to Rolling Blinds.

Vertical Blinds:

These tiltable, vertical floor-to ceiling slats are ideal for large windows and glass doors. They can be made in vinyl or fabric. If you do not want your blinds to slide on the floor, you should not measure the length of the slats until you have installed the track.

Venetian Blinds:

Venetian blinds, which are horizontal slats of metal, wood, or plastic, are the most popular. They can be tilted up to 180 degrees to let in more or less light as required. Cordless versions are now available, making them ideal for young children and families with pets. Cordless is tangle-free. Also, strangle-free.)

Panel Blinds:

Panel blinds are like vertical blinds. They are made from fabric and hang vertically. They can be used as room dividers and window treatments. Panel blinds don’t tilt so they are more flexible in filtering light.

Motorized Blinds:

Motorized blinds are more expensive but can relate to a smart home assistant such as Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa. They can then be controlled remotely, by voice, or through an app on your smartphone. These blinds are great for people with disabilities, who might not be able operate corded blinds. They look great, so they are suitable for everyone.

Mini Blinds:

The mini blinds are like Venetian, but they are shorter and more often made from metal. A micro blind is another option, with slats about half an in thickness.

Cellular Blinds:

One kind of window treatment is cellular shading. Window treatments are formed of a single, continuous piece of fabric and can be folded or rolled up (roller shades). Crisp pleats are used to fold up cellular blinds. There are numerous pleat sizes, colors, and light control options available for cellular shades, ranging from sheer to blackout.

Aluminum Blinds:

These blinds are best suited for sunny rooms because of their heat-repelling properties. They are typically made of aluminum in 6- or 8 gauges and can be ordered in widths from 1/2-inch to 2 inches.

Outdoor Blinds:

Outdoor blinds have slats that are closer together and are made from tough material to withstand the elements. These blinds are often made from woodgrain or reed and can be used to cover a porch or other exterior.

Rolling Blinds:

Rolling blinds are not like other blinds that have stacked slats. Instead, they roll from a spool that is attached to the window’s top. Many blinds are designed to keep heat in and out so they can be used on windows that face the sun or wind.

Roman Blinds:

You may decorate each window space in your house with a variety of window treatments, including roman blinds. They are a type of fabric-based pleated blind that you may level up or down according to your preferences by simply pulling the connecting string.
