    blindsBlinds are a kind of window cover and there are a large variety of blinds and are controlled using different methods. Window blinds consist of lengthy horizontal or vertical slats of materials such as metal, wood or plastic that is held together by cords that run between the blind slats. Blinds are used with either a manual or electric controls by turning them from an open point to a closed point to keep out the light.

    Blinds come in different varieties like roller blinds, cellular shades, wood blinds, roman blinds and standard vertical and horizontal blinds. Blinds come in five different categories: venetian blinds, roman blinds, roller blinds, vertical blinds, and pleated blinds.

    Window blinds are produced from slats of cloth, wood, plastic, or metal which are changeable by turning them from an open position to a closed position that allows the slats to fold over. A roller blind has a single piece of material but metal blinds are used outside and are electrically operated.

    Vertical blinds have wider slats and the tug cord puts the slats altogether both to one side or to separate in the middle and stack on each end. The vertical blinds turn the slats by turning the shaft in the top head rail which go between geared carriers.

    Window blinds lowers the heat from the sun and can be drawn manually using a cord or electronically removing the need for cords.
