What Are PVC Window Blinds?
PVC vertical blinds are, simply put, vertical blinds made of PVC! That is, they are a type of window covering that has vertical slats made of synthetic polyvinyl chloride hanging from a bar above the window. The PVC material makes these blinds heat and moisture-resistant.
In addition, they are easy to clean and you can wash them in the washing machine. PVC blinds are an excellent choice for shades that will be used in the kitchen or any room where you have high heat or humidity. PVC blinds provide significant savings on energy bills.
They are also an excellent solution for anyone worried about unwanted intrusions because PVC material lacks the stealth properties of fabric blinds. The only thing PVC blinds lack in style and privacy. For this reason, they should be considered primarily as a cost-saving measure rather than as a solution to privacy concerns.
One of the major complications for product users of PVC blinds is the fact that they are not made to match any other window coverings using Velux blinds. For this reason, wherever you have a color scheme or other design and you want to coordinate it with your PVC blinds, you are going to need to choose a complementary color for your window coverings.
Because of their low style quotient, PVC blinds are most suitable for kitchens and bathrooms where there is a high level of humidity and heat. These two factors can cause the material to swell so much it will become too loose and fall off in your hand! In short, they are best used in indoor environments where there are not many windows or where privacy is paramount.
What Are Zebra Window Blinds?
Zebra blinds, also known as dual blinds, are a modern alternative to horizontal blinds. These blinds easily transition from day to night thanks to alternating horizontal opaque and sheer fabric stripes. You can control how much light and privacy your room receives by adjusting the stripes.
In addition, these blinds are available in a variety of colors, so you can match your decor. Despite their name, these blinds may be either vertical or horizontal with the proper hardware. The main difference between horizontal blinds and zebra blinds is the installation process.
If you opt to purchase dual or zebra blinds, it’s a good idea to have a contractor come by and install them for you so they will be properly mounted on your window. You can’t just buy these blinds, stick them through the window, and be done!
Zebra blinds are available in a variety of colors that match most decors. They are more expensive than other shades but their unique styling makes them worth every penny. Zebra curtains work very well in kitchens because of their ability to hide unsightly food prep areas from the view of guests coming into your home.
It’s important to note that zebra blinds’ stripes go horizontally, not vertically. So they don’t really qualify as vertical blinds or roman shades or window treatments.
Zebra curtains are an excellent choice for bedrooms and other rooms where you want to keep an open concept but you want privacy from your neighbors or passersby. Because they are not solid, you can still enjoy the light in the room even if you close them!
The only downside of zebra blinds is that it’s more difficult to clean them compared with other types of window coverings like traditional horizontal shades. This is due to the alternating opaque and sheer fabric strips.
