Identify Your Blind
Roman blinds consist of a length of material which, when drawn up, gathers into horizontal folds from the bottom.
Venetian / Wooden Venetian Blind
Venetian blinds consist of overlapping horizontal, flat slats, usually made of metal, vinyl or wood. They can be tilted so as to let in more or less light.
Roller blinds usually consists of stiffened polyester, mounted on a pole and operated with a chain or spring mechanism.
Verosol, Duette & Silhouette Blinds
Verosol, duette and silhouette blinds are sheer shades with horizontal fabric vanes that float between two layers of sheer fabric. The fabric slats tilt and the shades rise up and down with a cord loop.
Vertical blinds consist of slats of stiffened fabric, plastic, or metal hanging by one end from a track; like the horizontal versions, the slats can be rotated 90 degrees to allow light to pass through or to fold up on one side of a door or window.
Austrian blinds consist of rows of vertically gathered fabric which are drawn up to form a series of ruffles.
