Strings and hardware, for easy adjustment, connect these thin strips of plastic, wood or metal. They look best on narrow windows in bedrooms, kitchens and workrooms.
Options and Features:
•Miniblinds have 1/2-inch- to 1/2-inch-wide slats made of very thin material.
•Plantation or venetian blinds are 1 to 2 inches wide and made of slightly thicker wood or molded plastic.
•If possible, mount a blind inside the window frame for a cleaner look. Shop for a blind 1 to 2 inches smaller than the width of the opening.
•For wide windows, plan to cover the window with two or more smaller blinds. Smaller blinds are easier to operate than long, heavier blinds.
