  1. I really like that blinds provide shade for your home windows. That is nice that there are a variety of designs and materials to choose from. I love how many options of window furnishings that you can get to make your home unique and fun.

  2. This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that blinds can be adjusted to let in more or less light. I’m in the middle of refurnishing my living room, and something I would like to change is the window treatments. I would really love to have something that would allow me to decide how much sunlight I want, so I’ll definitely look into getting blinds. Thanks for the great post!

  3. I don’t know what to do for my home windows. I didn’t know that shades were so nice! It would be great to be able to have some privacy, too. I wouldn’t want to have to worry about anyone looking in!

  4. It was great to understand that wider horizontal slats create the illusion of bigger windows! I live in a small apartment by myself for 3 years and I am trying to find new ones that will fit. I will be sure to keep that in mind when. I will be sure to look into custom ones as well if they don’t fit!

  5. I like how you talked about there being a lot of options when it comes to choosing blinds for your home. My wife and I just moved into a new home, and we want to replace all the blinds with new ones so that they match. I’m going to have to show my wife all the different options for blinds you have listed and see what she wants to do! Thanks for the article!

  6. I like how you mentioned that blinds are beneficial since they can be adjusted to the amount of light you want let in. I feel like this would be a good window treatment for my home since I would enjoy being able to customize the amount of light my home receives. Is there a blind material that is better suited than other types for the job?
