If you are currently renovating, building a home or upgrading your windows, then you almost certainly recognize the importance of finding the right kinds of windows and blinds that fit your life and style. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. If you are going to be spending your hard-earned money, especially if you have a lot of windows, then you want to make sure you get high-quality, long lasting, durable products. One of the best ways to maximize your investment is to purchase windows with blinds between the glass.
Here are four great features of this particular category of blinds:
1. Improved Safety
According to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), beginning in 2018, it became a requirement that the majority of blinds sold in the United States and Canada be cordless or have inaccessible or short cords. This new safety standard highlighted how important it is to keep cords away from children and pets. If you purchase windows with blinds between the glass, there is zero chance that your loved ones can injure themselves playing with them, since these blinds are cordless.
Imagine having a new baby in your home and knowing that there are no window blind cords that might be of danger to them. You would have far greater peace-of-mind about your home’s living environment and safety factor when you weren’t able to be present with your children and had a babysitter or someone else watching them. It is also a wonderful feeling to know that your dog or cat can’t play with the window blind cords, which could injure them, as well.
2. New Technology & Latest Standards
One of the great benefits of upgrading your windows is being able to take advantage of the latest technologies and industry standards. HomeRite Windows and Doors offers windows with blinds between the glass that feature the newest innovations—things like no-slip gear belts for easier operation, self-leveling rails and a single cord-winding shaft that prevents the blinds from coming into contact with the glass surface. Blinds between the glass options are available for double-hung windows, casement windows, picture windows and sliding glass doors.
HomeRite also installs our products using requirements that far exceed the Florida building code standards, and we back our products with an industry-leading warranty, protecting your investment.
3. Appealing Style
Another advantage of choosing windows with blinds between the glass is that they are compatible with a wide range of interior decorating design styles, ranging from traditional to modern. You also don’t have the dreaded common predicament of pulling on the cord and having only half of the blind work properly, with one side of the blind being higher than the other. It’s not a good look and can take far too much time to try and correct.
Windows with blinds between the glass also will look newer, longer, because they have a lengthier service life. You don’t have to worry about replacing blinds earlier than you would prefer to due to wear and tear. You can rest assured that your blinds will look appealing for years!
4. Easy to Clean
If you suffer from allergies or have pets, you may understand the annoying hassle of having to regularly clean your blinds. The Today Show agrees that blinds can be a real pain to dust, yet recommends cleaning them at least once a week. Compared to regular blinds, windows with blinds between the glass don’t need to be cleaned weekly and will stay dust-free because of the sealed insulated glass unit technology. You can breathe easier knowing that all of the blinds in your house aren’t slowly collecting dust and pet dander. With just one cleaning recommended annually, you will save a great deal of time and energy on your household chores throughout the year!
