Mini Blind Basics

March 2, 2013 | By

The mechanisms that are used to open and close blinds range from simple cords and easy to use chains to remote controlled electronic devices. Mini blinds will block out sunlight, prevent people from looking into your house, and also add style to your home. Mini blinds come in various styles and you can even make them yourself at home.

Mini blinds are available in a wide range of sizes and colors, along with custom sizes and styles. This allows you to control the direction and amount of natural light while still providing a sense of insulation. There are some blinds styles that even adjust to allow breezes to flow from the window into the room by raising or tilting the slats.

With one style, slats are sandwiched between two sheer fabric layers that diffuse light when the slats are open. With another style, the slats are laminated vertically to a single fabric layer for a curtain effect. Mini blinds can come in wood, faux wood, vinyl, and even aluminum. Wood type blinds offer rich, subtle colors along with unique textures. The classic types of blinds look elegantly simple and can help to enhance a contemporary look or even add a classic flair to your home.

A less expensive alternative to wooden mini blinds is faux wood, or a synthetic wood made of PVC or a composite material. Aluminum is a good choice as well, as it provides a low cost and durable solution to your window problems. Aluminum mini blinds are also easy to clean and easy to maintain. The least expensive variety is vinyl blinds, that come in standard sizes only.
