Window blind: How to choose the blind according to the type of window
If you are thinking of buying a window blind, you may be wondering which is the best blind for your type of window, and that is that in the market we have various options.
For example, we can find types of tilt-and-turn, folding and sliding windows.
Therefore, the first and most important thing is to know if the installation is going to be viable by opening the window.
In addition, there are rooms in which the space to place the blinds is reduced, so we have to know the different options of blinds that we have.
In this post, we will analyze which blinds to choose for your type of window.
Window Blind according to the type of window
In general, there are many roller blinds that we can choose to decorate the windows of our home: roller blinds, compact, chain, among others.
All of them have the possibility of being installed both on the ceiling and on the wall, and with the same supports, so for sliding windows, we would have no problem installing any type of window blind.
But what if I have casement or tilt-and-turn windows?
These kinds of windows manage to open 180º and/or tilt about 10º, depending on whether we turn the handle 90º or 180º.
They are very common in all types of homes, so it is very possible that our home has them.
If that is the case, what blind do I choose for this type of windows?
First of all, we must look at whether the installation of the roller shade is feasible since it is possible that we do not have enough space above our window to install it, although as a general rule we should have it.
To find out, we must calculate if it is possible to install our blind mechanism.
To help you in this task, below you will see a table where you can check the height and width measurements of each of the window blinds.
If it turns out that our space prevents the blind from being installed, we can count on the lap roller blinds for inclined windows, which are installed in the inner frame of the window.
This type of roller shades allows us to drag the blind with us when opening the window.
Our team usually only recommends this type of articles when it is not feasible to place another type of window blind, since the installation of this mechanism is done by screwing the sale so that in case of changing the roller shade or removing it, we must cover the holes as they will be visible in the windows.
In any case, there should be no problem in dressing a tilt or turn window.
