Window blinds in Destin, FL can do some amazing things for your home. Window blinds come in many different types of materials and colors so that they can be matched with any décor or theme that you already have established in your home.
One thing that window blinds do for your home is provide excellent light control. Window blinds can either be horizontal or vertical (these are often used on sliding glass doors, but they are an excellent option for stationary windows that don’t open or for sliding windows). Window blinds can be easily adjusted throughout the day – and at night – to let light in or keep light out, as the need arises.
Many window blinds have two kinds of light control. You can raise the entire window blind to let the most amount of light in, or you can keep the window blind closed and control light by moving the slats in the window blind to the open and shut positions.
If you add a top down/bottom up option to the window blind, you have even more control over raising the window blinds. Top down lets you lower the window blinds from the top of the window, allowing light in, but keeping the bottom portion private. You can lower the window blinds as much or as little as you like. Bottom up works like traditional window blinds, allow you to raise the blinds from the bottom as much or as little as you prefer.
Window blinds offer an excellent way to increase the insulation of your windows. Up to 25% of the heating or cooling costs of a home can be directly tied to energy loss through your home’s windows. Window blinds add an insulating layer that can reduce that energy loss and lower your energy costs. By having them closed, for example, during the hottest part of the day, window blinds can dramatically cut the solar radiation that can drive power bills higher during the summer months. Having window blinds closed during the winter months can keep your home warmer because they add another barrier to block cold air from coming in.
We all want our homes to make a stunning visual impact on our family and friends. Window blinds can contribute to that impact by adding color and style to all the windows in your home. For a playful look, you can have window blinds in complimentary colors installed in all the bedrooms in your home or you can alternate two contrasting colors of window blinds in a common area such as a den or dining room to create a dramatic effect. There is no end to the possibilities of add that extra touch to your home with window blinds.
Another thing that window blinds can do for your home is provide window treatments for odd-shaped or odd-sized windows. Window blinds can be customized to fit any shape of window or any size of window. Some of the most common applications of customized window blinds are on arched windows above entry doors or decorative octagonal windows in upper hallways. But customization is not limited to these types of windows, so window blinds can be used on any window in your home.
