Four Facts Homeowners Should Know about Horizontal Blinds

Blind slats can go in 2 directions: vertical and horizontal and they are usually controlled by different mechanism, such as cords and pulleys. Some methods are manual, while others are remote-controlled. It is obvious that customers will pay more for complicated systems or vertical blinds made from unique materials. There is a lot to know about this type of window coverings, and how they should be ordered.

Here are 4 of the most common facts homeowners should explore before making a purchase:


1. Combine Elegance and Efficiency
If you want window treatments that are resourceful and beautiful, you should consider buying blinds for your house or office. These solutions look great, and allow you to control the amount of natural sunlight entering a room. Another amazing feature is that you are in charge of your privacy. Depending on the settings of the blinds you can allow passersby to look inside, or you can shut them out completely. It is a great benefit when you are trying to avoid unwanted visitors.

2. How to Order
The easiest way to purchase window treatments is from an online shop. Find a dealer with an excellent reputation. There are 2 different ways to measure blinds. The method depends on whether you want an inside or outside mount. First-class online sellers publish easy-to-understand measuring instructions on their website. They explain exactly what you have to do. They also supply a phone number that potential customers can call if they need assistance. Check various dealers to ensure that you get the best price. Do not skimp on quality, as that will be a decision you will, eventually, regret. Cheap, inferior blinds break easier. Their appearance fades fast.

3. Double Roller Blinds Are Popular
Made from high-quality moisture-resistant materials and finishes, double roller blinds perform well in humid and wet environments, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry areas. Look for designs that have anti-static and anti-fungal features if you have people living at the house with breathing problems. Asthma sufferers will be grateful for your selection. Leaders in this industry offer a wide range of attractive sizes and colors. These blinds can also be custom-made.

4. Eco-Friendly Solutions Protect Future Generations
A lot of today’s consumers are very careful about the products they buy. They are very selective in order to reduce their carbon footprint. It is crucial to care for the environment, and give future generations a decent chance to live happily ever after. Select horizontal blinds that are eco-friendly. Non-toxic materials are just as durable and appealing as their competition, yet make you feel much better about yourself. “Green” solutions also help you save energy. A dedicated dealer selling blinds can tell you exactly which products in the shop fall within that category.

Nebraska Hay Bales

Another Wordless Wednesday is upon us. I found a few bales the other night on a walk and I couldn't help but snap a few pictures. These lone bales pale in comparison when you consider the hundreds of golden bales spread out over acres of pastureland that you find in ranch country, but they reminded me of home. Hoping you have a great Wednesday!
