Horizontal blinds are one of the most practical choices of window treatment blinds for light control. These blinds can be raised or lowered, but typically you just move the slats to allow the proper amount of light into the room or close them for total privacy. The slat size of your window blinds can affect the ambiance in the room. The smaller slats like the 1” allow for more privacy because the view is limited, while the larger slats like the 2 ½ “ provide a more open view into your home. Did you know that you can install multiple blinds on one headrail? Two or three blinds can be operated together or separately. This option works well for sliding glass doors or side-by-side windows.
