Generally you start with selecting the correct width of the slat for your window blind. There are three sizes ranging from ½ inch up to 2 inches. For a home, ½ inch would be perfect as it provides a contemporary look to the window. But if you are on a tight budget, opt for the 1-inch versions as they are more economical.

Next, decide on the orientation of the slats – Horizontal or vertical. Generally, window blinds with horizontally placed slats are recommended for homes. Window blinds with vertically placed slats are generally opened by drawing the blinds to one side as opposed to raising the blinds. These Vertical window blinds are generally seen in commercial establishments with wide windows and sliding glass doors

That said, we at Apollo Blinds often recommend vertical window blinds because these days they are available in a wonderful range of sheer fabrics. Visit to any of our stores and you would be amazed at the range of sheer fabrics used in the design of beautiful vertical window blinds.

Choosing the right colour for your Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Go neutral! The colour of your window blinds should closely match the colour of the window trim in the room. If you select any other colour, you would end up changing the room colour, décor to match the window blind or changing the window blinds every time you change the room décor.
