Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are the simplest and easiest to operate amongst the other types of window blinds.

Most roller blinds are usually made with heavy materials and come with either a manual pull system or an automatic pull system consisting of a spring, which causes the blind to roll up automatically once given a light tug.

The prices in South Africa ranges from R$ 222 to R$ 740 depending on the type of pull system and the size of the blind you’re going for.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian Blinds were common in the olden days but their designs are a bit ‘tasteless’ compared to the modern ones.

Unlike the old-fashioned ones that are made of only wooden or aluminum slats arranged horizontally on a cord or string system, modern-day Venetian blinds are a bit more complex and can even help trap air to keep the room temperature constant all year round.

Of course, there are still the more simple designs which are a lot cheaper but if you are looking for something classy for your windows, you might want to up your budget a little and go for the more expensive modern designs.

This type of design often features a group of horizontally placed slats on a chain pulley system. The slats each consist of a honeycomb-like structure made up of a single piece of fabric consisting of air pockets which can trap air and keep out heat. The slats can also be tilted to control light and privacy while the cord can be pulled to lift or lower the blind.

Venetian Blinds are quite versatile and can be used in all rooms in the home or office. They are also easy to clean.

Vertical Blinds consist of slats arranged vertically from top to bottom. They can be tucked to the side or swivel from left to right (and vice-versa) to control light and privacy.

Since the slats are arranged vertically, the blinds collect lesser cloud of dust and are easier to maintain. Vertical Blinds also create the illusion of height in a room. This makes them especially suitable for rooms with low ceilings.

You can use them for windows in any room in your home or in the office especially when such rooms have embarrassingly low ceilings.

The price of is dependent on the material as well as the size you’re going for. The price range of vertical blinds in South Africa varies from R$ 740 to R$ 2,220.

These are more like window shades made from Pleated fabrics. Thet can be pulled to sit on window tops as though they are nonexistent.

Due to their type of construction which consists of cell-like compartments, they have been rated as the most energy-efficient and sound absorbent types of window treatments.

Pleated Blinds, though quite effective at reducing noise pollution, come with a great disadvantage. Small Insects can easily get into the cellular compartments and may even die and get rotten there and in most cases, you might find it hard getting them out of the compartment.

Prices of Pleated Blinds range from R$ 74 to R$ 2,035 in South Africa.

Roman Blinds

The Roman Blinds is the classic definition of class and luxury. Being one of the most beautiful types of window treatments in the world, Roman Blinds can be used in any room or office especially if you plan to add a luxury touch to your apartment.

Roman Blinds consist of soft folds of fabric which folds into a nice decorative pelmet when pulled up. Unfortunately, they don’t offer any protection against high temperature or moisture unlike the other types of blinds. This makes them unsuitable for bathrooms. For sunlight protection, you can purchase a blackout lining in addition to the window blinds to completely block out sunlight.

The price of Roman Blinds in South Africa depends on sizes and the type of material used in making. Often, you can find them within the price range of R$ 740 to R$ 2,220.

When it comes to choosing blinds for windows in your home or office, the most important thing is your needs and how often you can clean them. If you feel your room or office ceiling is too low and you want to make it seem higher, you can choose to go for a vertical blind. They are also suitable for those living in very dusty climates.

Pleated Blinds like Roman Blinds add a touch of luxury anywhere they are placed while Roller Blinds are suitable for those looking for cheap blinds that are simple and easy to operate.
