Alpine Blinds provides a blind service to the Coatbridge area.
Choosing blinds from a blind company is good fun but sometimes all the different types of blinds can start to get a bit confusing. Here’s a basic run down of the main types and where people often place them.
Roller blinds work by rolling down the material to cover the window and are usually made of fabric, although they can have a different fabric on both sides. They are code effective and ideal for informal settings from living rooms to bedrooms and even from offices. They can be made to fit inside the window recess or hang outside it.
Roman blinds are a more formal style and are made of fabric. They operate with a pulley which raises the blind in a concertina style, leaving a section of blind always visible at the top of the window. DIY fans often make this style themselves and there are many different materials available for them.
Venetian blinds are made of plastic, wood or metal and work well in kitchens or bathrooms where the moisture levels would spoil fabric. They allow you to filter the light levels entering the room and are popular for home offices too.
Vertical blinds go from floor to ceiling and are popular in conservatories or for patio doors and windows. They can move from side to side to clear the window entirely or can be closed to make a solid cover for the space.
