Blinds are a very popular type of window covering. There are many different options, all of which use a variety of control systems. A typical blind is made up of several long horizontal or vertical slats of various types of hard material, including wood, plastic or metal which are held together by cords that run through the blind slats. Blinds can be maneuvered with either a manual or remote control by rotating them from an open position, with slats spaced out, to a closed position where slats overlap and block out most of the light. Sunshine Shutters and their team of professionals specialize in all types of window coverings, including the several types of window coverings, called shades, that use a single piece of soft material instead of slats.
The two primary types of blinds are ready-made blinds and custom, made to measure. The made-to-measure options are measured by a professional and expertly constructed to fit a given or measured window size within your home or office. The ready-made blind selections are pre-manufactured in set, generalized sizes, and will be cut down to size by an installation professional from Sunshine Shutters to fit many of the more common window sizes.
These blinds can be classified broadly into six different categories: roller (which do not have slats but consist of a single piece of material), Roman, pleated, Venetian, Shoji Japanese and vertical blinds.
Horizontal blinds use a thin woven corded "ladder" system to suspend the slats and enable them to be closed or opened via a rotating drum to which each upper end of the woven ladder is wrapped and attached.
