Tips To Choose Blinds And Shades

Materials:

If you're looking to completely darken your room during sleeping hours, Nate Berkus recommends opting for vinyl vertical sliding glass door blinds because not only are they durable and energy-saving, but they offer a more opaque effect. There are also fabric material blinds options that can nicely darken a room as well. Options that look more traditional are wooden, bamboo or aluminium sliding glass door blinds which are hardwearing but keep in mind that wood might eventually warp in high-humidity spaces. If you're looking for a soft light to billow in on a daily basis, a nice choice is semi-sheer blinds which are often made in a blend of polyester material and paper.

Construction:

Jake Arnold, recommends that when it comes to sliding glass door blinds you choose an option that can easily be directed to one side so that you make your way through the doorway when needed. This often involves vertical cellular blinds that run on a track system that allows them to be pushed left or right. For contemporary designs, you can choose to mount them on the wall or ceiling and there may be a track connector rail that goes on the floor to keep things stabilized. Even if your sliding glass door blinds are fashioned using larger fabric panels, they can often still be opened or closed using a handy control wand. You might even be able to find remote-controlled sliding glass door blinds which can close or open with the hit of a button.

Aesthetic:

Interior design expert, Noz Nozawa notes that it's important to consider a room's overall look, style, and feel when looking for sliding glass door blinds because the wrong choice can completely change the aesthetic. For instance, if the blinds are going in a modern kitchen with white walls and neutral furniture, opt for a panel blind in a grey or cream color that blends with the room's palette. If you're looking for added privacy but still want some natural light to shine into a dark space, a semi-sheer fabric panel blind in soft hues can feel organic to the space and not overly cumbersome. For those who have more of an eclectic feel happening in their home, you can really play with your sliding glass door blinds and choose a patterned or abstract print style that will fully complete an otherwise unadorned glass door space.

Blinds and shades differ in two ways:

  • The materials for each style are different. Blinds tend to be made from wood, metal, or vinyl while shades are usually fabric-based, softening the overall appearance of your windows. 
  • Blinds give you the flexibility to let light in by tilting the blinds slightly or pulling them completely open. Shades, on the other hand, must be pulled up to let light in.

Wood

Available in both dark and light hues, wood blinds are great for your den or office. Since wood is affected by moisture, it's best to keep this blind material out of environments that get humid, like your kitchen, restroom, or laundry room.

Aluminum

This is an ultra-lightweight material for blinds. It's very flexible but can be bent out of shape if damaged during cleaning. Since aluminum is rust-resistant, this is a good choice for humid environments. Plus, it's an exceptionally affordable material.

Vinyl

This is a synthetic polymer material that fits well in any environment, regardless of climate. It's durable, affordable, and easy to keep clean, making it a popular choice for homes everywhere. You'll find tons of patterns and colors with this material so you can be sure to complement your interior décor nicely.

Fabric

Fabric blinds and shades are made in one whole piece without any spaces between slats. Because of this, they are great for insulating and keeping sunlight out. This style traps dust between folds and you'll likely require professional support to clean without harming their pulley system.

Before determining the right size for your blinds or shades, you'll need to decide if you will be mounting them inside or outside your window frame. Inside mounted blinds and shades look cleaner; however, if they're mounted outside, you can make your window appear bigger. Once you've decided, you can move on to the steps below:

  • Measure the width of your window (bottom, middle, and top) and use the narrowest width measurement. For outside mounts, add three inches for overlap (1 to 1.5 inches per side).
  • Measure the height of your window (right, middle, left) and use the longest height. For outside mounts, add 1 to 1.5 inches to the height.

Looking to dress a sliding glass door? => Choose vertical blinds.

This blinds style includes individual slats that hang down from the track on top. They are commonly opened from one side; however, some may part in the middle. This is a frequent choice for sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Need blinds for a large window? => Choose panel blinds.

Panel blinds, like vertical blinds, are a popular choice for sliding glass doors and large windows. Panel blinds are comprised of vertical sections that move along a track, allowing you to leave them closed for privacy or open them up to let the light in.

What's the most popular choice? => Venetian blinds.

This is the trendiest style. These slats are horizontal and are attached with thin strings. You can tilt these blinds to control light and privacy, or you can raise them, fully uncovering your outside view.

Need blinds for a small window? => Choose mini blinds.

These blinds operate just like venetian blinds, except the horizontal slats are not as thick as their venetian counterparts. Expect each horizontal slat to be no more than one-inch thick.

Need to sleep during the day? => Choose blackout shades.

These shades can block up to 100% of light, setting you up for a cozy afternoon nap or setting the mood for a good movie with your loved ones. Expect to pay more for this shade style.

Have an extra sunny room? => Choose solar shades.

Solar shades are made with a sheer weave that blocks out dangerous UV rays but still allows you to see through them. These fit perfectly in parts of your house that get direct sunlight, like sunrooms and light-saturated family rooms.

Going for a natural feel? => Choose woven wood.

Woven wood, like bamboo, provides full coverage while providing a natural feel. This shade style looks great in garden rooms or sunrooms, where you incorporate other natural elements, like plants and flowers.

Want to add a touch of elegance? => Choose roman shades.

Roman shades have expansive, delicate pleats that fold flat when raised. These look great in family rooms and dining rooms, where these soft touches can be appreciated.

Concerned with saving on energy costs? => Choose honeycomb shades. 

Honeycomb shades are designed to trap heat during winter months and keep heat out during summer months. They have horizontal strips of air compartments that resemble a bee's honeycomb. They're a super functional choice for places that experience drastic changes in temperature.

For a sunny and cheerful feel, you can pull blinds completely open or tilt them enough to let the sunshine in. When working with shades, choose a light-filtering fabric that encourages a brighter setting. Even when you choose sheer shades, opening them up completely will always let the most amount of light in.

For a warm and cozy environment, keep your blinds closed or tilted only slightly to filter out the light. For shades, choose a room-darkening fabric that seriously limits brightness in your room.

When you have a base understanding of different blind and shade types, you are better equipped to make a purchase you'll love. Are you leaning more toward blinds or shades?
