There are times when curtains are not enough to keep
away the heat from the sun. Window blinds provide the solution. Blinds are
horizontal slats that are joined one on top of the other by strips of cloth
called tapes, or by cords. Window blinds can be made using various materials.
However, blinds made of timber provide that timeless and sophisticated look
when added to homes or offices.

humid areas and should not be placed in rooms with high levels of moisture. The
surface of the slats can warp or fade when exposed to water or moisture. A good

feature a plastic component that can tolerate moisture and water. On the
negative side, faux wood blinds do not provide the same insulating performance
as wood blinds.
