Window blinds are a type of window treatment you can use for your home, office or shop here in Singapore. There are many types of window blinds you can choose from. In the last article, we discussed a few of these types, including bamboo, rainbow, roller and roman blinds. In this article, we will continue to discuss the other types of window blinds available.

Here are other types of window blinds you can use in  your home:

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds have horizontal blades made of either aluminum, PVC or wood. Their blades come in different widths, although narrow blinds are more common. They also come in a wide range of colors. You can adjust the blinds using a sturdy string on its side. Using the string, you can angle the blades the way you want, based on how much or little light you want in a room. If you want more sunlight, adjust the blades until they look flat. If you want to have less sunlight, angle the blades upward or downward.  Venetian blinds by themselves do not look stylish. However, they can give a room a cool and relaxing look if you angle the blades downward.

You can use Venetian blinds in the bedroom, kitchen and dining areas. Venetian blinds look grand in living rooms that have large vertical windows.

Vertical Blinds

Singapore is a tropical country, so it’s important for you to choose blinds that would block out the heat of the sun. Among all types of blinds, vertical blinds are the easiest and most elegant type of blinds for sun protection. Because the blades of vertical blinds are wider than Venetian blinds, they provide better coverage for large windows. Vertical blinds also fit well with round and irregularly shaped windows. They are available in a wide range of colors and materials.

Vertical blinds look best in living rooms with large horizontal windows.

Vitrom Blinds

Vitrom blinds is a practical yet dramatic type of window blinds. This type of blinds is perfect for people who want as much protection from heat as they can. Vitrom blinds do not have blades. Instead, it has an opaque front layer made of overlapping fabrics and a sheer and translucent layer at the back. The back layer provides additional protection from the sun, even if the front layer is open. When you close the opaque front layer completely, the blinds resemble a large roller blind. When you pull the string, the overlapping fabrics of the opaque front layer separate to let light in. Opened vitrom blinds look like a window jalousie. Vitrom blinds give a laid-back hippie feel to your home. You can choose among the many fabrics, textures, and colors of vitrom blinds available in the market.
