The variety of materials and ability to match the color and design to the individual interior of the house has made horizontal window blinds some of the most popular window blinds in Canada. They provide 100% privacy when closed and fill the room with light when horizontal blinds are opened. There are several types of horizontal blinds:
Sheer window shades are the most modern type of horizontal blinds, they are made of a two-layer matte fabric with a layer of air inside. Working as a solar filter, sheer window shades fill a room with soft light, gently scattering it around the house, creating a unique atmosphere of home comfort. Horizontal sheer shades are perfect for large panoramic windows in condo and luxury residential houses, as they do not make interior too heavy, emphasizing the elegance and style of the room instead.
Sheer shades can be completely hidden when the shades are rolled up at the top of the windows, fully opening the view from the window. They can also be pulled down when open, when light-blocking fabric plates are placed horizontally letting almost all the light in, gently spreading around the house. Sheer shades can also be completely closed when the light-blocking fabric plates are positioned vertically. In this state, the minimum of light goes through, creating complete privacy in the room.
Horizontal fabric blinds will add a European style to your home due to the use of noble fabric and lightweight construction. We a variety of more than 1000 fabric samples for you to choose the optimal design from light and classical to dense and textured fabric. Fabric shades look equally good when they are open letting the maximum of light in and when they are closed, blocking light only partially and creating a pleasant shade in the room and complete protection from UV rays.
Horizontal wood shades have been long popular for a reason as they create 100% protection from sunlight and create a cozy atmosphere in the house. However, wood blinds can eventually lose color and become brittle, so we use modern technologies allowing to produce blinds that look and feel like a 100% tree, but at the same time have several times longer service life and at a price several times more profitable than natural wood. Wood blinds are made of composite wood, covered with PVC layer from the outside, completely imitating natural wood, but several times more resistant to external aggressive influences and loss of color in the sun.
