Ever since the dawn of civilization, people have been obsessed with the idea of privacy and the need for their own space, which has only increased over the years becoming almost an obsession with the present generation. Even in modern buildings, the difference in available light at various times of the day and year mean that most areas need some form of lighting control wherein the amount of light entering may be controlled as the need arises. One of the most effective and low cost methods of doing this is by using blinds. They have been around for a long time in various parts of the world from the deserts to Venice.
There are two main varieties of blinds – vertical and horizontal. Whereas the horizontal ones are less likely to break down, vertical blinds are less likely to be damaged in a strong wind and accumulate less dirt. Many companies manufacture blinds for homes and the wide varieties available include options on the material, sizes and technical specifications as also decorative options. So choose wisely to lower energy costs as well as increase the aesthetic look of your modern house.
