Vertical Blinds Offer Window Blinding Solutions
There are a variety of problems that renters can find in their apartments. Drafts, poor lighting, unwanted noise, poor decor, and a host of other worries that all make things very difficult. However, many of these problems can be helped, if not outright solved, by a careful choice of window blinds.
Window blinds, are an important and unobtrusive accessory in any apartment. Most apartments have a balcony these days, and that means there will be large doors that are most often giant windows. This is in addition to any other windows that the apartment boasts. Light, noise, cold and hot air, all of these come right through those windows. No matter the size of the window, vertical blinds can be cut to fit them. These window blinds, which can turn up to 180 degrees, are flexible in their duties. Whether the vertical blinds are closed completely to block out a window, left closed but turned to let in some light and a breeze, or thrown aside entirely can all be done with the tug of a string.
For those who haven’t seen them before, these are a type of window blinds made from various slats. Hung from the top of the window, vertical blinds don’t gather dust the way horizontal blinds do. As such, vertical blinds provide the advantage of easy cleaning. Vertical blinds can be turned to let in as much light as is wanted by the occupant, or they could be pulled aside. Various kinds of these window blinds close from left to right, right to left, or from the center outward. Which type of vertical blinds you have is a matter of preference, but the decor and arrangement of the apartment should be taken into consideration when deciding where the slats draw back.
While it’s true that any variety of window blinds can stop noise, drafts, and light, vertical blinds are the most convenient and on average the longest lasting of the window blinds on the market. Horizontal blinds can get easily tangled, and they collect dust which can ruin the look of a room and be very difficult to clean. Vertical blinds can be cleaned with a simple dusting, and since they hang free, they don’t become tangled as easily. This can make vertical blinds especially convenient for those who have pets in their apartments, particularly cats.
However, just because they are convenient and tough doesn’t mean they can’t add to the feel of a place and become a valued part of the decor. These particular window blinds come in a variety of colors and materials, all of which can be customized by the person buying them. If an apartment boasts natural furniture and hand carved wood, then a set of wooden, vertical blinds would greatly compliment the style of the place.
If on the other hand a renter has achieved a light, airy feeling with a large amount of soft furniture and bright colors, than perhaps premium, woven fabric window blinds would better suit the sensibilities of the home. In addition to the material though, the length of the vertical blinds, direction they’re pulled, amount of turn, and even if they’re installed on the inside or outside of the wall can all be determined by the owner. This makes vertical blinds not only tough and durable, but also variable and flexible to the needs and desires of the owner.
So, whether a person is an apartment owner who’s trying to attract new renters, or a new renter trying to find a way to make their apartment their own, choosing a new set of vertical window blinds is one of the smartest, and most efficient ways to do just that.
