California is a state where sunshine is worshipped and homes have lots of windows. But that wonderful sunshine can also fade flooring and furniture. It can also contribute to a buildup of heat in the interiors of homes. One solution is to use window coverings on windows to control the sun and UV rays. There are a number of different types of window treatments available. Shades and blinds are nice because they can be controlled by cords or motorized mechanisms to cover a window to block the sun or opened out of the way to let in the sun.

Window Blinds

Window blinds come in many materials and price points. They consist of many veins that are held together by strings. They stack neatly at the top of a window, cover the window and block out all light, or are closed with the veins at an angle to let in some light but provide privacy. Window blinds can be made of metal, vinyl, wood, or faux wood. The veins can be ordered in several widths and in many colors or stains depending on the chosen materials.

Window blinds can be ordered to fit inside a window frame or on the outside of the frame. They can come with a cord control or motorised control. Blinds must fit perfectly to operate properly. Careful measuring and professional installation are key to proper operation. There are also vertical blinds that have wider veins that have a vertical orientation and move to the sides of a window or patio door.

Window shutters are made with a frame that contains wood or faux wood such as polycore veins. Shutters usually come in pairs that can be closed or open out towards the sides of windows. When the shutters are closed, the veins can be adjusted to let light in.
