A Short Guide To The Different Types Of Blinds

Types of blinds

If you own a rental property an essential piece of permanent furniture or fixtures are your window treatments including blinds, curtains, and shutters. The window treatments or blinds in your property are essential for not just privacy but also for protecting the tenant’s belongings from the sun’s rays and ensuring the property keeps cool in summer and warm in winter.

While landlords might jump at the change to install cheap window treatments, the reality is, that window treatments such as blinds for rental properties should be durable, and of high quality to ensure they last the test of time.

Tenants appreciate attractive and durable blinds and window treatments, and if you want to install some new windows treatments for your rental, then here’s what you need to know.

1. Vertical blinds

Probably one of the most well-known types of blinds for rental properties due to their affordability, vertical blinds easily suit most decors and are a good option for living room spaces, dining rooms, and in bedrooms due to their ability to let in a little light while also being private.

Vertical blinds are easy to use and panels can be replaced should wear and tear occur. The style is available in a range of colours and blind companies offer a range of styles to suit every rental property.

2. Venetian blinds

A more sophisticated blind option, Venetians are lovely in a range of materials including wood and metal for a more chic look in the rental property. While they are slightly more expensive, they do stand wear and tear and offer some stylish looks in a range of spaces including the kitchen and living rooms. Available in white, wood, and a metal style, there are lots of great options for Venetian blinds.

3. Panel blinds

No matter the type of blinds that are installed at a rental property, it is essential that the blinds are of high quality to ensure they meet the wear and tear of a rental property. Blinds and any permanent fixtures should be high quality to ensure that no matter the tenant, your fixtures won’t break or be easily damaged in the event of heavy use from a tenant.

Summing up

As well as the blinds mentioned above, there are also plenty more options and a blind specialist can help you choose an option to suit a rental property. All depending on the style of the property, the budget and the look you are trying to achieve, blinds are a great way to please tenants and offer a great window treatment that is easy to use and practical.

No matter the type of blind you choose, investing in a quality blind for a rental property will ensure your window treatments stand the test of time. While cheap blind solutions might seem like a good idea at the time, investing in a quality blind with a quality finish will last longer and guarantee that you are not replacing the blinds at the end of every tenancy.
