Q:Are Curved Blinds Better Than Flat Blinds?
A:When it comes to choosing the window blind that gives better look and light control, you also have to consider the shape of the slat more than its width. Window blinds come in various slat shapes. There are two styles or shapes of window blinds: curved blinds or flat blinds.
As to which between curved blinds and flat blinds is better depends really on your personal taste. Each has advantages and disadvantages of its own which we will explore in this article.
When To Choose Flat Blinds?The most common flat blinds are the faux wood blinds. They resemble the look and feel of traditional wood blinds but don’t give you the worry of warping as they are not really made out of wood materials. Faux wood blinds come with flat slats that allow a small amount of light to pass into the room when the blinds are tilted shut. Hence, you must choose flat blinds if you find a dark room uncomfortable. Additionally, you can choose flat blinds for rooms that still need light even when blinds are completely shut off like the kitchen and dining room.
When To Choose Curved Blinds?Curved blinds have curved slats that bend the light down and prevent it from getting through when the slats are completely closed. As the slats are curved, curved blinds give you maximum light and privacy control. The curves of either side of the slats of curved blinds fit together when the blind is tilted shut. Thus, very little light can seep through when you close the curved blinds.
Choose curved blinds, if you want your room completely dark when the blinds are shut. For example, get curved blinds when you need a window covering for your home theater room.
