What Are Internal Blinds for Doors?
Internal blinds for doors, also known as “built-in” blinds, have become exceedingly popular recently and for good reason too. Internal blinds, as the name suggests, are blinds that are housed between the two panes of glass on your entry doors or patio doors.
Internal Blinds are Low Maintenance
You may not think about it very often but your regular blinds and curtains can collect a lot of dust, and are fairly hard keep properly clean. Internal blinds for doors do not collect dust as much as regular blinds or curtains because they live between the glass and are protected from dust, damage, pets, and children. This is a very important feature for homeowners who have dust allergies or a significant other or children with dust allergies. Also, the blinds stay looking like new because outside environmental factors are eliminated.
Built-In Blind Cordless Operation
The long lasting battle between allowing light into your home, and also maintaining privacy is finally over. Internal blinds give more privacy than normal blinds, as they have a single-hand cordless operator that opens, closes and tilts the blinds. And privacy bars eliminate visibility into or out of your home, as well as reduce sun glare. Also, this type of blind does not use cords like traditional blinds, which eliminates a strangling hazard for young children in the household.
Long Term Savings
Being able to control the amount of light coming into your home can be key to saving you money on your monthly bills. In the winter, internal blinds for doors add an extra layer of insulation to your home reducing your heating bills, and in the summer internal blinds shade your home from harmful UV rays and keep it nice and cool during the hot summer months.
In addition, being able to angle the internal blinds easily will enable you to protect your furniture and flooring from harmful UV rays from fading the colours, further saving you money!
Not only are internal blinds extremely beneficial for the reasons listed above, but they are also very elegant looking, and can make your whole home look more upscale than regular blinds or curtains. This aspect, along with the blinds being a permanent fixture of your home, can increase the value and resale price of your home!
