Blinds: Choosing the Right Material

Choosing which material is right for your blinds can be daunting. Every material is incredibly different and each has distinct qualities that may or may not fit into your life. Interiors: Blinds & Designs, serving Peachtree City, Newnan, Fayetteville, Senoia, Tyrone, and the surrounding areas, wants to help you understand the differences between the available materials for your blinds so you can make the most informed decision for your home.


Vinyl blinds are incredibly easy to maintain and will offer the best values to you. Vinyl blinds will not be destroyed by moisture in the air, so they can be used without worry in bathrooms, and they will not rust or tear easily which makes for a safer product for your home. Vinyl blinds are durable and can withstand any and all rough treatment that may occur in the home. Vinyl blinds are available in both horizontal, Vertical Solutions® and Somner® and vertical the styles, Celebrity® and Macro. Vinyl blinds come in a large selection of colors and sizes that could be perfect for your home.


Fabric blinds have a sleek and modern look that will work beautifully in a home or in an office setting. Fabric blinds are mostly vertical hanging blinds, like Hunter Douglas’ Vertical Solutions® and Somner® styles, but are available in a few horizontal blinds as well. Fabric blinds are great for large window expanses or patios because they will allow a lot of light to enter the home. Fabric blinds come in a large array of colors and textures to fit seamlessly into any room décor but are a bit more difficult to clean than a vinyl or wooden blind. Vertical blinds have excellent light filtration which can even be increased by adding a layer of backing if needed.


Aluminum blinds give you the most freedom when it comes to color choice. Because aluminum blinds are painted, you can choose any color that you want. Aluminum blinds are available in many different styles like the Reveal®, Natural Elements™, Lightlines®, and Décor® styles. When it comes to durability, aluminum blinds are your best choice. These blinds will withstand all the wear and tear in the home while continuing to function at their best for many years to come. Aluminum blinds have excellent levels of light filtration, will not warp or crack in high humidity.


Wooden blinds will bring classic, rich beauty into your decor. Available in many different styles of blinds, like the Parkland® Scenic, Classics™, Textures, Ash, and Weathered, you will never be limited on your style choices. Wooden blinds have excellent levels of light filtration and insulation for the home without needing additional layers to block light or keep heat transfer at bay. Wooden blinds, if properly sealed and treated, can be used in high humidity conditions in your home, so they could be perfect for your bathroom or kitchen. They are also available in both horizontal and vertical orientation.
