One of the most important things that your home provides to you is privacy. Your home is where you can truly be yourself without worrying about anyone looking at you. That is why venetian blinds are such a good solution for all your window furnishing needs.
Let’s look at some of the problems that you get with other window blinds and shutters that you will not face with venetian blinds.
Letting the Sunlight In
With almost every other form of window furnishings, you have to choose between sunlight and privacy. If you want to let some sunlight in and give your room some natural lighting, you have to give up your privacy. This is a big problem because there are many advantages to natural light.
The first is that it is good for your health. Your body needs vitamin D and natural sunlight is a great source for it. Another important reason is that it saves energy and is better for the environment. You can keep the lights off during daytime and not use electricity for them as natural lighting is more than enough for whatever you need to do.
With almost every other type of window furnishing, you can either leave the window exposed or you can shut it down. With venetian blinds, you can let the sunlight in without losing your privacy! Venetian blinds can be rotated a bit. This means that you can change the angle of the slots that make up the venetian blinds. Thus, you can bring the venetian blinds down and then rotate them so they open up.
This means that anyone trying to look into your house will not be able to see anything, since the blinds will be closed at that angle. However, the sunlight will still light up your room, since the sunlight is coming from above at a completely different angle.
Keeping Prying Eyes Away
Most of our homes are private by default. Privacy problems become a thing when your neighbours have windows that are at a different elevation level than your windows. So your neighbours can look inside your rooms if their windows are above yours, due to the angle. This means that at any time of the day, people can look inside your house unless you keep your windows closed. Now, you can just keep your windows boarded up but that would be a terrible waste of those windows.
This is another area where venetian blinds will get you the best of both worlds. You can install them and then rotate their slots to make it impossible for someone above to look inside. The best part is that you will still be able to look outside the window at eye level – the rotation only stops viewers from an angle. You will also be able to get all the sunlight that you want.
