Blinds are a popular window covering options due to their relatively inexpensive cost, ability to control light, improve insulation from direct sunlight, and match the existing decor. Installation is fairly simple and they aren’t permanent.

Why Are Blinds The Preferred Window Covering?

In simple terms, windows are a big hole with glass separating you from the outside world. Without a window covering, anyone can see into your home or office when they pass by (that could be embarrassing).

Window coverings provide protection from those inadvertent (or snooping) eyes. They help to provide instant protection when desired, yet give you the ability to see what’s happening outside.

There are several types of window coverings to choose from, each with their own benefit. But, which covering is the best?

For most homeowners, blinds are the preferred option. As we alluded to earlier, they are relatively inexpensive, control light, improve insulation from direct sunlight, and match the existing decor. Window blinds don’t take long to install and they can be changed if you don’t like them.
