Valance Vertical Blinds and Other Ideas for Window Coverings

Valance Vertical Blinds and Other Ideas for Window Coverings

When it comes to getting the right window treatments for your home, you’d be surprised to learn about how many options there are for them. However, each window treatment works in its own way and has its own benefits and drawbacks. For instance, learning what valance vertical blinds are may sway your decision to using them over something like roman shades.

We break down some of the main window treatment options to consider for your home.

Valance Vertical Blinds

Valance vertical blinds are a popular type of vertical blind. The only true difference between them and normal vertical blinds is that they have a valance or covering that covers the track the blinds hang from. This makes them a great choice for picture windows as they can easily be adjusted to let in the desired amount of light.

Mini Blinds

One of the most economical of all the blind types, mini blinds sit horizontally to easily control incoming sunlight. They are the most affordable option on our list, but they are some of the most difficult to keep clean.

They are best used for smaller windows, although they do come in larger varieties for larger windows.

Honeycomb Blinds

A frequent pick for blackout-blinds. Honeycomb blinds are highly effective at blocking out sunlight. Because of this, they are frequently chosen for bedrooms and rooms where sunlight either comes in at irritating angles or produces too much glare on screens.

Roman shades in modern homeRoman Shades

Roman shades offer some of the best customization options. Because they typically use fabric or materials like jute or seagrass, they can easily be tailor-made to perfectly match your home aesthetic. They also offer a unique look to any room with their unconventional design.

Roller Shades

One of the classic styles of shades that’s been around for ages, roller shades continue to be a popular choice for window treatments to this day. That’s often because, like roman shades, they’re highly customizable too. Roller shades are available in a broad range of natural and synthetic fabrics and can also function as blackout shades when made with a denser material to better block out sunlight.

This is only just a taste of the blinds that are available. From Venetian blinds to solar shades, there are a plethora of options for window treatments to choose from for your home.
