3 Most Common Types of Blinds in Wheatfield

Wheatfield blinds come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are pros and cons to each one, which you need to consider for your home. To help you get started, here are the three most common types of blinds for your Wheatfield home.

Blackout Shades

The first on the list is blackout shades. These types of blinds are dark and sometimes thicker to block out all light from the outside. If you have a nursery or you struggle to sleep because of light from the outdoors, you need these blinds in the home. It’s possible to slide them up and down to let as little or as much light in as you want.

Most blackout shades will be black or navy blue. They are usually in a fabric material, and you can either have a pull cord or a mechanism to pull on the actual blind to get it in place. If you do have children, avoid the pull cords as much as possible, as they are a safety risk of Wheatfield blinds.

Cell Shades

Blackout shades may be too dark, but you may like the ease of pulling up and down. One of the benefits is that you can completely open the blind to flood the room with daylight. When you want this type of shade, you can opt for cell shades. These are often slightly thinner than blackout shades and in lighter colours. Some daylight will peak its way through when the blind is closed, but not enough to become pointless.

Cell shades mostly come in fabric. Some of them will be patterned to add more to your décor. There are a small number of shades that are plastic material instead. These tend to be cheaper to buy.

Slat Shades

If you prefer to control the amount of light that you let in and out of the home, slat shades are something to consider. With slat shades, you can twist the positioning to allow some light into the room easily – controlling the angle that light is at. You can also open the blinds completely or have then shut entirely.

Slat shades can come in fabric, plastic, or wood materials. Wooden options tend to be the most expensive but have the most limits on colours – people tend to prefer blinds in Wheatfield that are more traditional and natural. One of the benefits of slat shades is there is no loop cord, causing a safety risk for children in your home.

It is possible for these shades to completely block out light, becoming blackout shades where you need them. You can also get them in two halves, allowing you to pull them apart for your sliding doors and windows.

Now it’s completely over to you. Think about what you want to achieve with your blinds in Wheatfield to make sure you get the style that works for you the best. Blackout shades are highly popular for those with babies and young children, but slat shades are far more versatile for many needs.
