Type of Window and Door – If you have large double sliding doors then you will find large vericle or honeycomb blinds allow you to make use of the door space when needed. These blinds also work well for other large windows.
Cover Functionality – Do you need to block all light, and let all light through at other times? do you need privacy but still want some natural light? Choose a blind that allows these options. A translucent blind lets light in while giving you privacy, as will some light curtains. Venitian blinds can be adjusted to either block all light, or provide some light with privacy. Or they can be adjusted so the whole window is open.
Room Purpose – If you are putting blinds in the bathroom you will want privacy, and materials that withstand moisture. PVC and Aluminium blinds are good for this.
A home theatre room will need near 100% light blockage when the theatre is used. Choose blinds that prodive this, but that also suit the decor.
