Four Cool Blind Features That You Didn't Know Existed

The wide world of blinds is much bigger than people think. You have many more options than just the white mini blinds and aluminum blinds you can find at your local hardware store. There are, in fact, tons of window treatment options!

You can choose from:

  • Wood and faux wood blinds
  • Bamboo shades
  • Roman shades
  • Plantation shutters
  • And more

Not only are you able to choose between dozens of blind styles, there are also some cool features that you probably don’t know exist.

Motorized Blinds

The world is growing more and more technologically advanced every day. We can turn the TV on with the push of a button, change our thermostat from our smartphone, and we can even check our home’s security camera when we’re on the go. So, why are we still raising and lowering shades the old-fashioned way? Today, you have the option of upgrading to motorized blinds. Instead of getting up and walking halfway across the room, you can raise and lower the shades with a convenient remote.

Cordless Blinds

We’ve all dealt with that pesky cord that comes with traditional blinds. It has to be tugged and pulled just right in order to move the blinds up and down. In most cases, you have to deal with more than one cord at a time. If not pulled just right, you’ll end up with a crooked shade! Cordless blinds eliminate these problems for good because there’s absolutely no cord to deal with. These types of shades can be motorized, but they don’t have to be. Instead of tugging on a set of cords, you can simply pull up or down on the bottom of the shade in order to customize the amount of light that filters into the room.

Energy-Efficient Blinds

There’s no doubt that the right window treatment can transform the look of any interior space, but the right window treatments can do much more than that. They can increase the energy efficiency of your home too. Blackout curtains aren’t needed. Many shade varieties, like Roman and roller shades, can be ordered in blackout varieties. They’re perfect for the bedroom, but they’re a great option in any room where energy efficiency is a concern.

Kid-Safe Options

Traditional blinds can be a nightmare for parents. The cords on traditional blinds pose a choking hazard, while the slats of mini blinds and aluminum blinds can easily be bent or broken. As mentioned above, there are plenty of motorized, cordless options, but blinds can come in single panels as well. From honeycomb shades to plantation shutters, you won’t ever have to worry about the kids bending or breaking the slats of your blinds again.

When it comes to shopping for blinds, you should have plenty of choices that can be customized just for your home. Seek the help of a professional blinds supplier to find the style that’s right for you and your family. Shopping for the right blinds has never been more fun!
