Aluminum Blinds

blinds Wilmington NC Strickland's Blinds, Shades & ShuttersAluminum blinds have come a long way in the past few years, and they’re a great option for offices as well as residential spaces. The blinds can be adjusted to close entirely to let the light in, close slightly to allow beams of light in from a variety of angles, or tilt shut to keep the light out entirely. We love aluminum blinds because they’re:

  • Highly functional
  • Very affordable
  • Easy to clean, dust, vacuum, and even wash in soapy water
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Now available cordless and motorized to be safe for kids and pets

Faux Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds (sometimes called ‘alternative wood’ blinds) are a practical alternative to wood blinds. They’re made of polymer materials which contain UV inhibitors to protect from sun and exposure damage over time. They can be tilted 180 degrees to let the light in or block it out completely. They are:

  • More affordable than wood blinds
  • Heavier than wood blinds
  • Unaffected by moisture and humidity
  • Available in multiple colors and finishes, including wood grain finishes

Wood Blinds

Wood blinds are a classic window treatment option celebrated for the richness and warmth they add to a room. Naturally, though, they are not humidity-friendly. In the world of window treatments, wood blinds are:

  • Classic and stylish
  • Available in wood stains as well as painted finishes
  • Great for insulation due to naturally porous wood
  • Relatively heavy
  • Eco-friendly (here’s why!)

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a versatile window treatment. Whether you need coverage for large sliding patio doors, office windows, or a contemporary bedroom or living room, they’re a solid choice. Vertical blinds are:

  • Ideal for long, large windows or sliding glass doors
  • Easy to clean and collect less dust than horizontal blinds
  • Easily adjustable for light control and can slide entirely out of the way for a full view
  • Available in a variety of opacities from slightly filtered to blackout and fabrics and wood styles as well
