You know you want Clarence blinds for your home. Now you just need to find the right type. Just what are the pros and cons of the different types available? Here’s a look at each one explained.

Blackout Shades for Complete Darkness

When you want to get rid of all sources of light in and out of a room, you want to consider blackout blinds in Clarence. These are just as they sound. Usually made of a thick and dark color (often black), they will prevent all light getting into a room. The room becomes as dark as physically possible.

They are popular in kids’ bedrooms, especially nurseries, to make it easier for youngsters to sleep during the summer months.

Light Filtering for Comfortable Light

You don’t need to block out all light. It’s possible to buy light filtering options, both as solar or slat styles. The material on solar shades is usually thinner than blackout blinds, allowing some natural light to shine through. You get rid of the glare of the sun and prevent UV damage, but you don’t need to use the indoor lights the whole time the blinds are pulled down.

These are often popular for kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms. They allow you to watch TV without the sun glare but without too much darkness.

More Light Control with Slat Blinds

Clarence blinds also come with slats. These slats can be vertical or horizontal, but they all provide the same purpose. There is more light control. You can opt to let all light in, close all light off, or get a happy medium. It’s also possible to direct the sun’s rays to a particular angle, whether you want to direct them away from your face, your TV, or a part of the room suffering from UV damage.

Horizontal slat shades are extremely popular in kitchens and bathrooms. They come in waterproof materials, making them perfect for anywhere with moisture and humidity.

Honeycomb Shades for More Insulation

Your blinds in Clarence aren’t just for light control. They can also help to control more of the heat coming in and out of the house. Honeycomb shades are among the best options, due to the designs. They’re known as honeycomb shades because of the way two pieces of pleated materials are joined together. They create the diamond shaped honeycombs when you look at the side.

The heat is trapped within the shades, preventing it escaping through the material and out of the window. In the winter you can lock in the heat when using the heating. During the summer, you can prevent the heat of the sun causing the temperature in the rooms to rise.

These types of shades are perfect for all rooms. They come in a variety of materials and colors to gain all light control benefits.

Are you ready to make your Clarence blinds choices? Consider what you would like for each of your rooms and look at your multiple blind options. There is something for all needs, whether you want to block out all light or have far more control on a daily basis.
