Benefits Of Blinds in Chicago

The biggest issue with the majority of window blinds is how quickly and easily they break, get tangled, or begin to stick during typical operation. Sunburst’s wood and faux wood blinds last much longer than lesser products. Their tough slats won’t bow or snap and moving elements don’t fray or get worn out quickly for years of effortless function. Sunburst’s faux wood blinds even last years to come in humid areas thanks to their water-repellent synthetic wood construction.

Sunburst’s blinds work better than inferior blinds as well. Our proprietary headrail configuration is specifically manufactured for easy operation, and the wide slats of solid wood or wood synthetic provide exceptional privacy and inhibit most natural light. Select between several simple-to-use modes of operation for when you decide to change between varying amounts of sunlight. We also offer distinctive edge routing that doesn’t have the ladder openings you find on numerous blinds that allow people to look into your rooms.

One of the greatest benefits of blinds for Chicago residents is their allure. They mix the traditional look of blinds with the elegance of hardwood or synthetic wood for a sophisticated look. Choose from a multitude of colors to complement your existing decor and you might even choose a valance for a distinctive embellishment. Or use them as stylish temporary substitutes until you have custom plantation shutters. Good luck trying to find other options that give your windows easy function and stunning appeal to the same degree that faux wood and real wood blinds from Sunburst Shutters do!

Common Questions About Blinds In Chicago

How Do Sunburst’s Blinds Compare With Other Alternatives?

Metal and vinyl blinds have built-in flaws that cause them to bend or break quickly. These common blinds typically have second-rate mechanical elements that also break down and fail to work properly over their limited lifespan. In contrast, blinds from Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions have intrinsically robust materials such as hardwood and a solid wood substitute that holds up much longer than other alternatives. They won’t twist or fracture when your dog bumps them, or when a little one grasps them. They can also be expected to operate smoothly for their lifespan, so you won’t have the irritation of your blinds getting stuck as you try to manipulate them.

Our blinds are more appealing too. Robust hardwood and faux wood blinds give the impression of upscale products thanks to their exquisite construction and inspired colors. We then go the extra mile by allowing you to customize with beautifying twill tapes, rounded corners, valances per your tastes. At a time when you see second-rate blinds everywhere, Sunburst’s blinds rise above the pack for their craftsmanship and stunning appearance.

How Do Blinds Work?

Our blinds operate similar to any other blind. If you shut your blinds, a stack of slats releases past your window to cover it. You may manipulate the slats to tilt in your direction if you would like to bring in outside light or shift them down to impede views and sunglare. As you decide to open your blinds, the slats ascend and collect neatly along the headrail installed above your window or inside your window opening.

Sunburst has differing lifting mechanisms for your blinds in Chicago. Standard corded blinds consist of cords you pull to reposition the slats, while blinds with wands operate with the twist of a rod. We also offer cordless lift blinds that you open and close with a bottom rail.

Can I Install Blinds In A Bathroom?

Not every window treatment can hold up to high humidity baths and kitchens. The excessive heat and dampness will make materials weaken from contracting and expanding, which results in warping and splitting. Moist areas might also cause mold to grow on permeable window products.

If you need window blinds in these types of places, your most sensible solution is our faux wood blinds. Made from a durable synthetic material, the slats on faux-wood blinds are impervious water and the damage it wreaks. You will enjoy their beauty in bathrooms and kitchens for many years.

Are Blinds The Same As Plantation Shutters?

In one word: No. Despite the fact that many residents make reference to any window covering as a “blind”, interior shutters (also called plantation shutters) are a noteable advancement over blinds. Shutters last longer, better manage light and outside air, come with a frame surrounding the window to make them more of a lasting part of your home, and have more complete warranties.

Whenever you’re looking to pick between blinds and shutters in Chicago, Sunburst Shutters Chicago is happy to help you assess your requirements and choose the best treatment for your windows. But Sunburst’s faux-wood blinds are a great, cost-effective selection when you would like a finely crafted treatment to conceal your windows and add appeal to your home.
