Window blinds in Los Altos Hills, CA are one of the most incredible window treatments for you home. Because they come in many types of materials and different colors, window blinds can be easily matched with any existing décor or theme that you have your home or you can update your home by creating a whole new décor or theme with them.
One of the functional advantages of window blinds in your home is that they give you maximum control over the amount of light that you let into a room. With options for window blinds that are horizontal or vertical (usually found on sliding glass doors, but can also be used on stationary windows that don’t open or on sliding windows), they can be easily adjusted throughout the day – and night – to allow light in or keep light out, depending on your need at any given time.
Many window blinds have two ways to control light. The whole window blind can be raised or lowered (to let maximum light in or to maximize the amount of light kept out) window blind can remain closed and light controlled by moving the window blind slats to the open and shut positions.
Adding a top down/bottom up option to a window blind gives you even more control over raising them. Top down will lower the window blinds (as much or as little as you prefer) from the top of the window, allowing light in, while keeping the bottom portion of the window private. Bottom up makes the window blinds work like traditional window blinds, letting you raise the blinds from the bottom up as far as you like.
Window blinds can help increase the insulation of your windows. Approximately of the heating and cooling costs in your home home is directly attributable to energy loss through your home’s windows.
Window blinds give your windows an extra insulating layer that can decrease window energy loss and lower your power bills. By having window blinds closed, for example, when the sun is hottest during the day, solar radiation, which can drive power bills higher during the summer months, can be drastically reduced. Keeping window blinds closed during cold weather will keep your home warmer because they form an additional barrier to block cold air from coming in.
We all want our homes to have an amazing visual impact on our family and friends. Window blinds can contribute to that impact by adding color and style to all the windows in your home.

There is no end to the possibilities of the creative ways that you can use window blinds in your home to create a unique style or décor.
