Blinds are simple, modern window treatments. Blinds are made from hard materials, such as wood, metal, or vinyl. They have slats or louvers, which are tilted open or closed by cords running through the length of the blind. The entire blind can also be lifted or lowered. Blinds are typically hung horizontally over smaller windows, or vertically over a sliding glass door or very large window. There are many different styles of blinds, as well as many different colors.
Vertical blinds are often used in condominiums with large windows because of their simplicity and versatility. They can cover out sunlight through the entire window, or be completely shifted to expose the entire window.
