Vertical Blinds Are the Sound Resolving Window Blinds Solution
Noise is a problem everywhere, and for everyone. Whether a person lives in a nice home, high rise condominium, small apartment, or spends most of their time at work. The sources of noise are nearly as varied; barking dogs, thin walls, loud music, quarreling neighbors, and even regular, unavoidable things like street traffic and honking commuters. However, there is an economic, easy, and customizable solution for this, and other problems is to install a set of vertical window blinds.
Contrary to popular opinion, window blinds are useful for more than just keeping the morning sun out of a sleeper’s eyes. Window blinds can insulate a room for all manner of purposes. Depending on the thickness of the slats that make up a particular set of window blinds, they’ll block unwanted light, help stop unwanted noise, and keep out unwanted heat or cold. The slats of window blinds, when closed, form a single stack like a wall. The thicker the slats are, the better their properties as insulators. Just as if adding an extra wall, noise and light will have a harder time penetrating closed blinds. Additionally, a closed set of window blinds will keep cool, conditioned air in a room in the same way that it would stop heat from escaping out through a window in the wintertime.
Of all the available sorts of window blinds, one of the best types to invest in are vertical blinds. Vertical blinds are hanging slats that go from the bar at the top of a window down to the floor, or windowsill. One of their great advantages is that vertical blinds are the most customizable of all window blinds. For instance, a set of vertical blinds can be as long, and as wide, as it necessary. Additionally, the slats can open to the left, to the right, or they can part like a stage curtain, whichever is most convenient for your space. Also given their ability to open up at a variety of angles, which lets in light, sound, or fresh air as the occupant wishes, coupled with the huge number of colors and materials that vertical blinds can come in, they’re one of the best values for the money on the market.
Window blinds, and vertical blinds especially, aren’t just for use in the home. If a person has an office with windows, either ones that look inside or outside, vertical blinds can add an extra air of style and privacy. If office window look outside of the building, then that leaves the office open for bright light, traffic and commuter noise, and even high or low temperatures. Adding a set of vertical blinds to these windows can give the person who uses the office more control over these elements, and can help eliminate distractions. If the opposite is true though, and the windows from the office look out into the hallway, or perhaps onto a work floor filled with cubicles, adding a set of window blinds may still be a good idea. With bright, overhead fluorescent lights, ringing telephones, chatting employees, the sound of incessant typing, and even the constant distraction of people continually being able to look through the window can all be very distracting.
Adding a set of vertical blinds over the windows can give the office worker a bit of much needed privacy, and the option to tune out the distractions outside his or her office to concentrate on their own work. As an added bonus, vertical blinds on interior windows can send a message to co-workers. Open window blinds mean that the door is open, while closed may mean the opposite.
