Other Choices from Red Blinds

When contemplating those red blinds we have found that neutral colors work the best and with over 35 years of experience we know that you have to be extra careful as to the colors and styles you choose. You know those individuals in the 70s with their shag carpet? Well how disappointed where they when a few years later needed to replace it when it quickly went out of style. We know styles come and go, but going with a more neutral classic design, you will be more likely to enjoy your blinds for a longer period of time. At 3 day Blinds we don’t want to just provide you with blinds, we want to provide you with a sound purchasing process knowing that when you are happy you will enjoy our products much longer. If a darker hue is what you need, then we recommend using wood blinds which have a timeless appeal. Plus they have a texture-rich luster that provides a warm glow to any room. It is a great way to ramp up the design and feel of a room and not only adds a classy professional feel but helps to keep utility costs in check keeping the sunshine out and cool air in during summer months.  With our award winning website, three day blinds the blinds professionals that red blinds may sound great, but there are other alternatives to red blinds that are available to provide you with a happier finish.

Louvers can also be angled to keep out harsh weather conditions including snow, rain and bright and warm sunlight. The angle of the slats or louvers can be adjusted or fixed. Louvers are often constructed out of aluminum, wood, faux wood and even glass and can be opened and closed using a metal lever, motorized operators or pulleys.

Louvers, Blinds and Shutters

In many rooms, windows tend to be the source of romance by setting a certain mood by filtering sunlight and casting a warm light upon the entire room. Romantic living rooms and bedrooms alike usually are best suited by window treatments that are warm and rustic, like wood or faux wood blinds. Quaint English cottage interior décor looks can be achieved with shutter or blinds. Even beach homes or island retreats are suited for faux wood blinds or shutters that feature horizontal faux wood louvers. One can adjust the angle of the slats or louvers during the daytime to add romantic lighting to a room.

Over the years, many have speculated and ascribed meaning to the colors and symbols of the American flag. Today, orators, and most all Americans can agree that the American Flag embodies a sense of freedom, pride, and opportunity. There’s no better place to express these liberties than in the home, which stands as the heart and soul of American families. Here are a few of my favorite ways to bring patriotism into the home:
