Window blinds are very popular because of their provided benefits for users. Included to these basic benefits is their ability to be closed or opened. An open window blind has a lot of benefits like letting the air flow into the room or getting off the heat from the house. Close window blinds also have lots of benefits.

Actually, all types of blinds can be closed but this ability still varies depending on the type of window blind.

Types of Blinds

Venetian blinds are still the most popular window blind type. But there are still other types of window blinds like the mini blinds, vertical blinds, solid blinds, Holland blinds, pleated binds, and honeycomb blinds. Each of these window blind types is distinguished by their structure and each of these can be close in a different way.

Venetian blinds are constructed with special slats which are usually made out of metal or plastic. The width of slats composing the Venetian blinds varies in sizes. The common width, however, is 50mm. Some wider slats are better put on for larger windows. Some blinds may look like a Venetian blind but they are not really this type of blind. When they are made out of bamboo or wood, but with same structure as the Venetian blinds, they are still called as bamboo or wooden blinds.

Venetian blinds are closed by rotating the stick connected to the window blind roll. The slat will rise up until the window blind forms like a flat fabric on the window. Mini blinds, on the other hand, are just like the Venetian blind but the slats composing them are no more than 19mm. These are closed just the same way as the Venetian blinds.

Vertical Blinds are significant since their slats hang vertically, not horizontally. This window blind type is commonly made out of a hardened fabric. It is closed just like the Venetian blind, only that the slats will move sideways instead of rising up. Solid blinds, on the other hand, don't have any slats. They are composed of solid materials which can be closed by pushing or pulling. Holland blinds are made out of woven wood. These can be closed by rolling up the attached string.

Moreover, the pleated blinds are made out of pleated fabrics and can be closed by pulling it down. Meanwhile, the honeycomb blinds are made with fabrics that are connected to one another. This can be closed by pulling the material down.

Blinds were primarily created to provide you with privacy and prevent sun light from entering through the window. These are still the major benefits you can get from closing your window covering. This way, you can have the feel of fresh air while having your needed privacy or you can have the feel of summer while not suffering so much from severe heat of the sun.

With these benefits and capabilities of closing the blinds, anyone can be grateful of having close window blinds. Anyway, you can always open them whenever you want or need to.
