Blinds: A Popular Window Treatments Choice
Why are blinds such a popular choice for window treatments?
What exactly are Blinds?
Basically, a window blind is a popular type of window treatment (window covering) that generally consists of several horizontal slats that are held together by cords that can be used to open and close these slats, and raise or lower the slats all at once. Blinds also may come with vertical slats, and some have other mechanisms such as wands or remotes for opening and closing the slats.
The slats are made of a hard material such as wood, faux wood (which is a composite of wood and man-made materials), plastic or metal, and come in a variety of colors, with white generally being the most popular. They are the ideal simple window treatment for any room in the house, inlcuding living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens.

Why Choose Window Blinds?
When someone says "blinds for windows," they may be speaking generically about any number of types of window treatments, but for our purposes here we'll stick to the specific type of blinds we mentioned above as opposed to other window coverings like shades and shutters.
Home blinds are a classic way to cover your windows for privacy and light control with style. They look great in any room of your home, and with a variety of colors to choose from can match any decor.
With a very simple procedure for opening and closing them, horizontal blinds can let in as little or as much light as you like by adjusting the slats' open & closed positions, as well as by lifting the whole row of slats upward for a nearly complete view out the window. Similarly for vertical blinds, which are a popular choice for sliding glass doors, except that the fully open/closed position is from left to right instead of up & down.
The most popular blinds with our customers are the 2-inch wood blinds, though slightly larger slats are also in demand. Since the faux wood blinds are less expensive while maintaining the look and feel of real wood blinds, we have a lot of requests for them as well. In either case, our window blinds are an affordable solution for any room in any home!
