Marathon FL Custom Window Blinds and Shades
Window blinds are types of window treatments. There are many different kinds of window blinds which use a variety of control systems. A typical window blind is made up of several long horizontal or vertical slats of various materials (fabric, wood, plastic, metal) which are held together by cords that run through the blind slats. Window blinds can be adjusted by rotating them from an open to closed position with either manual or remote control. Window blinds reduce the heat from sunlight. Horizontal blinds use a thin woven corded ladder system to suspend the slats and enable slats to be closed via a rotating drum to which each upper end of the woven ladder is wrapped and attached. A lift cord allows the blind to be pulled up and stack tightly to the top of the window when desired.
Marathon FL Blackout Blinds and Shades
Blackout blinds are perfect for bedrooms and media rooms. We provide blackout blinds in a variety of colors, patterns and designs. Some products need a blackout liner, which can be added to your order. Without this liner, some products cannot be classified as blackout blinds.
Marathon FL Faux Wood Blinds
Faux wood blinds are an alternative to real wood blinds. Made of a composite of man-made materials and natural wood particles, faux wood is a less expensive choice than natural wood. These blinds have become more popular as the products have matured, becoming cheaper and more versatile at the same time offering more of a natural wood look. Faux wood blinds are relatively warp resistant, have UV ratings and come in many colors. Because of their resistance to warping, faux wood window blinds are a great choice for areas with extreme temperature changes. They are also the ideal choice for places with high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens, since they do not warp as easily as natural wood.
Marathon FL Mini Blinds
Other variety of window blinds include mini blinds (Venetian blinds with very narrow slats, usually 1 inch wide) and micro blinds (usually 1⁄2 inch wide).
Marathon FL Roman Blinds and Shades
Roman blinds block out the Sun. When opened Roman blinds stack up evenly, however when covering the full window height, they are smooth without overlapping. Roman blinds can be purchased with a blackout (fabric) lining on the back to fully block out sunlight. Unlike other blinds such as roller, vertical and Venetian blinds, Roman blinds offer minimal protection against high temperatures or moisture, making them unsuitable for bathrooms.
Marathon FL Venetian Blinds / Wood Blinds
Venetian blinds have horizontal slats, one above another. Venetian blinds are basic slatted blinds made of metal or plastic. Wooden slats are also used, but in the US these are now usually referred to as wood blinds. They are suspended by strips of cloth called tapes, or by cords, by which all slats in unison can be rotated through nearly 180 degrees. The slats can be rotated such that they overlap with one side facing inward and then in the opposite direction such that they overlap with the other side facing inward. Between those extremes, various degrees of separation may be effected between the slats by varying the rotation. There are also lift cords passing through slots in each slat. When these cords are pulled, the bottom of the blind moves upward causing the lowest slats to press the underside of the next highest slat as the blind is raised. A modern variation of the lift cords combines them with the rotational cords in slots on the two edges of each slat. This avoids the slots otherwise required to allow a slat to rotate despite a lift cord passing through it, thus decreasing the amount of light passing through a closed blind. Slat width can be between 16–120 mm, with 25 mm being a common width. Wood blinds are generally known as Venetian blinds. A number of horizontal wood slats are joined together by corded pulleys which can either gather all the slats at the top of the window to reveal the view or simply angle the slats while allowing some light to travel through the blind yet retaining some level of privacy. Wood blinds come in a number of finishes and sizes. Wood Venetian blinds are also available as vertical blinds. These are usually made up of wider slats and operate in virtually the same way as their horizontal counterparts.
Marathon FL Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds uses a generally wider slat and has the added feature of being able to pull a cord to stack the slats together either to one side or to separate in the center and stack on each end.
Marathon FL Sun / Solar Shades
Sun shades or solar shades reduce UV rays, which keeps rooms cooler, reduces costs related to air conditioning, and protects your furniture from Sun damage.
