Blinds can be divided into two groups, indoor and outdoor blinds. Let’s take a look at the different blinds available and learn what they are and how they are used.
Roller Blinds: blinds that are operated through the raising and lowering of blinds on a rolling tube with a chain or cord. They cost approximately $50 to $600 per window.
Sunscreen Blinds: Affordable blinds costing from $50 are designed to allow maximum light into a room whilst filtering out the UV rays.
Venetians: These blinds are slatted horizontal blinds, made from wood, plastic or aluminium. These cost about $150 per window.
Plantation Shutters: A very stylish blind that is operated using a vertical handle to open and close them, whilst being able to open them to fully expose the window as well. These are more expensive at about $400 per window.
Vertical Blinds: These look great on high windows and are made of hanging PVC or fabric panels that are drawn back using cords, chains or handles. The average cost of these is $80.
Sunblinds: are fabric coverings for the outside of windows designed to provide shade from the sun, starting at about $200.
Ezip Blinds: are PVC or mesh type fabric and allow you to see whilst securing any area from the elements and insects. Ezip blinds start at $450.
Folding Arm Awnings: are installed on walls or ceilings and when in the outward position, are supported by an extending arm that, when away, is hidden. The average cost of these is around $800.
