Sep 1 2010
Light filtering blinds are some of the most versatile blinds on the market. They have the best attributes of Roman Shades, Cellular Shades and Venetian blinds all rolled into one. They are some of the best looking insulating blinds available. They are energy efficient, have style and light filtering qualities.
Another benefit of these light filtering insulating blinds is they are Greenguard Certified for indoor quality. The cells they are built with honeycomb structures to insulating against leaks and air coming in from outside. They also help keep air regulated inside. The light filtering quality lets you diminish the escape of heat during the winter and the hot air that tries to sneak in during the summer. The Venetian blind aspect collapses the cells into slats so you can adjust the blind to let in as much or as little sun as you like.
The outwards appearance of these shades is of that of a Roman Shade and uses a soft to the touch material. The ‘pleats’ that define a roman shade fold down, giving a nice glow to a room. These shades let you adjust them any way you need to in order to keep glare off televisions or computers. They also offer UV protection, which stops fading.
These blinds have the best of both worlds. They give excellent light control, they insulate against heat and cold and you get great privacy. The color palette includes shades of neutral colors in order to blend into a room and keep the focus on art pieces or furniture. They may come with a $50.00 rebate depending on the company you purchase them through.
There’s also another option for light filtering blinds and those are horizontal fabric shades. They are defined by a wide pleat and a stronger color selection. They are simple to use and are easy to raise and lower. While you can choose to open and close them at will, many prefer to have them closed all the time and simply give adjustments during the brighter or darker hours of the day. Pink Flamingo, Onion and Blue Jean are a few options for decorating.
There are a ton of options to choose from including print patterns as well as solid colors. They work best in living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. These blinds do have cords so be sure not to use them in rooms where small children or pets play.
