Window Shades Or Wood Blinds

When you want to cover up your windows and have privacy but want to do so for next to nothing, then the way to go is with window shades. They have been around for a long period of time and are still used today to block out the sun as well as get privacy in the room. They are often used today with curtains or drapes, although they are pulled down, usually at night, to maintain privacy. While curtains and drapes are pretty and many people enjoy this soft look, they may not offer the privacy that is needed in the home. This is the reason why people will often combine shades with them. Regardless of whether you use them alone or with curtains, they are a cheap way to cover your windows and block out light.

Wood blinds, on the other hand, are meant to be seen. There are many different choices when it comes to finding blinds and many of them can be found at an online outlet. This is where a person will find the best deals with regard to any window coverings. If you are looking for cheap blinds as well as those that are made of real wood, the online outlet is where you want to go. The only thing that you have to be able to do is to hang them yourself. Or find someone else to hang them for you.

Take a look at what you plan to do with the home as well as your budget before deciding on which type of window covering is for you. If you like the idea of curtains or drapes or perhaps want to get an expensive window treatment somewhere down the road, then go with window shades for now. They are very cheap and easy to hang. The only thing that you have to do is to measure the window for them. They are mounted on the inside of the window instead of outside the window. There are a few fractions that you can go off, too, if you are measuring so do not be afraid of doing this. Again, they are very cost effective, give you privacy as well as block out the sun. There are shades that are made for room darkening for those who may sleep during the day when the light can come in as well as those that are just made for privacy, depending on what you want.

If you decide on wood blinds, you have a choice as to how to mount them. You can mount them as you would shades, in the interior of the window panel. Or they can mounted out of the window as well. Take a look at how they look in photos of windows and also at your windows to decide which is right for you. When mounting these blinds, they need to be mounted in a stud in the wall if mounting on the exterior of the window, so you may need to use a stud finder in order to get the right mount. Measure the area that you wish to cover in length as well as width and also bear in mind that the blinds, when open, will project. This projection should be accounted for so that there is enough room between the blind and the glass of the window so that they can be opened and shut.

Two ways to cover the windows are with window shades and wood blinds . Both are cheaper at an online outlet. To find out more go to Shop Blinds Online.
