If you have a door or entryway that features a window, you may be concerned about your home’s privacy and security. Untreated windows are an opportunity for someone to take an unannounced peek into your personal space. This could put your property at risk for crime or intruders. So what are your options when it comes to adding window treatments to the entryways in your home?
The Benefits of Enclosed Blinds Versus Traditional Blinds
Blinds, though convenient, come with their own set of problems – they end up lopsided, dusty, broken or tangled, and the cord can be a hazard to kids and pets. Here are some examples you might be familiar with.
We have heard these complaints over and over again, which is why we have partnered with ODL to bring you an innovated solution – blinds that are enclosed in glass. The blinds themselves sit between two panes of glass, which means they won’t get dirty, dusty, or lopsided. For you, this means less time spent caring for and worrying about your blinds. Blinds that are sealed inside the glass don’t accumulate dust and dirt like traditional blinds and other window treatments do, which eliminates the need to clean them regularly.
Many homeowners see this reduced maintenance as the biggest pro of getting enclosed blinds, but another great part is that they don’t get broken, damaged or bent by normal everyday use. Homeowners note that it can be bothersome and expensive, though necessary, to get blinds replaced every few years, but enclosed blinds won’t break or bend, because they’re protected by glass.
In addition, there’s no hanging cord that can be dangerous to pets or kids. Enclosed blinds don’t use need cords for them to move up, down, or tilt. These mechanisms are enclosed in the glass as well. The cords won’t get tangled, tempt your pets, or be yanked on by your kids. Because of this, there’s no chance for the blinds to become lopsided, or stuck.
If you find that you’re opening and closing this door often, traditional blinds will move, rustle, bang, and make lots of noise, which is pretty annoying! And in the long run, this can end up causing damage to your blinds. When blinds are enclosed in glass, it means they’ll make less noise, and not flap everywhere every time you open and close your door.
Blinds are a great window treatment option because they can let in your desired amount of light, while still offering enhanced security and privacy for your home, property and family. Now you can see, though, that enclosed blinds are even better, because they have all the benefits of traditional blinds, without all the maintenance, hazards and hassle.
