Roller blinds

Roller blinds are made of a single piece of fabric that rolls up and down on a tube, controlled by a chain or spring mechanism. They offer a minimalist and clean look.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds are made from horizontal slats of metal, plastic, or wood. They’re usually operated by a cord-and-pulley system and can be adjusted to let in more or less light.

Roman blinds

Roman blinds are attractive window treatments that stack up neatly when raised, creating soft pleats. They’re available in a variety of fabrics, including sheer and blackout materials.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are made from long, vertical panels that can be opened or closed with a cord-and-pulley system. They’re great for controlling light levels and offer privacy when needed.

Plantation shutters

Plantation shutters are made of slats that can be opened and closed with a tilt bar. They offer more privacy, insulation, and soundproofing than other types of window treatments.

Wood blinds

Wood blinds are made from natural wood slats that can be adjusted with a wand. They offer an elegant, timeless look and are available in many styles and colors.

Cellular (Honeycomb) Blinds

Cellular blinds, also known as honeycomb blinds, are made from pleated fabric that forms air pockets (cells) that help insulate the room. They are energy-efficient and provide excellent light control.

Roman shades

Roman shades are classic window treatments that combine the functionality of a roller blind with the soft, tailored look of the fabric. They can be raised and lowered, providing varying levels of light and privacy.
