Blinds and shades

In the early days, horizontal blinds made of aluminum and vinyl were only used. Today, materials like bamboo reeds, wood and fabrics are used as well. These materials help blend with the outdoors and give a luxurious look for your rooms. The designer windows using blinds and shades provide privacy. The shades are decorative. Vertical shades, roman shades and roller shades are some of the different types of shades. Honeycomb shades are the best suited for long windows.

The classic shutters work well together with the valences and draperies. They help accentuate a traditional mood for your bedrooms. The rooms can be more stylish by using shades on the upper pane and shutters on the lower pane. The classic shutters are more expensive when compared to blinds and shades.

Faux wood blinds

Faux wood blinds also belong to one of the designer window treatment types. There are no bulky frames in the faux wood blinds. Even though the frame is absent, the blinds still keep the elements out. Like the vinyl blinds, the faux blinds hang in your designer windows. These blinds have a plastic rod, which helps open and close the blades. The movement of blades allows you to control the amount of light that passes through the windows.
