Many blind manufacturing companies aim to make simple blinds, and they follow this straightforward strategy somehow. Being a buyer, it may be hard to decide which one is for you when several different versions are available. These LA custom blinds versions are made up according to the buyer’s preferences. This guide may remove this confusion for you. Here we have explained the most common types of LA custom blinds:
- Venetian Blinds
- Roller Blinds
- Vertical Blinds
- Pleated Blinds
- Roman Blinds
- Venetian Blinds:
Venetian blinds are usually made of aluminum, faux wood, or natural wood. At the upper part of every Venetian blind, there is a headrail where the control mechanism is present. The wooden blinds may also include a decorative cornice that complements the slats. Whatever option you will choose, they both consist of two controls:
- One to tilt the slats
- Another to raise & lower them
You would also get wooden blinds with decorative tapes (taped blinds).
- Roller Blinds:
Roller blinds are kind of fabric blinds that may include an option of one or two rollers. You may call them roller blinds & double roller blinds for simplicity. When you use two rollers, you would add a voile layer to diminish glare if the sunlight is too bright, but it has paired with a blackout covering for the night.
A not-so-famous roller blind is the day & night blind, also known as duo blinds or zebra blinds. It would be best if you stuck to the day & night blinds to keep them simple. Day & night blinds are made from one fabric from a complex weave of voile & blackout strips. Whenever you unroll the roller blinds, the darker strips overlap the other to block the sun, which controls the entrance of light in the room.
- Vertical Blinds:
Vertical blinds work the same as Venetian blinds in their design. Rather than being horizontal, they are vertical but have the same concept. Opening these blinds is easy as they have two cords on the side that slides the vanes over the headrail & kept together through chains at the bottom.
The vertical blind fabric is relatively thinner, which helps to overlap better than Venetian blinds. It means they are available in dim-out or blackout options.
- Pleated Blinds:
Pleated blinds are another fantastic option in terms of fabric blinds. It functions by having a fabric that folds open & closed. A pleated blind with a single material is the simplest form, but they are also available in cellular patterns or honeycomb. Pleated blinds look fantastic & are available in a perfect range of blinds. You can attach directly to the window frame without any support of screws or drilling. If these blinds are set up properly, then these blinds look stunning on windows & doors.
- Roman Blinds:
Roman blinds are a luxurious option to cover a window. They are made up of a thicker fabric as compared to roller blinds. These blinds have rods sewn inside to develop even folds. So when you stretch the cord, these blinds unfold neatly from the top of the window. As these blinds are not wrapped across a roller, they are present in a vast range of fabrics & textures, which adds a new dimension to your blinds.
