Window blinds can be easily categorized into:-
Roman blinds are made of cloth so they fold when raised. A piece of cloth with a bar is mounted behind so that the curtain is neatly arranged in a horizontal fold when pulled with a chain or rope. This gives better insulation during cooler months when fully lowered and lying flat as a fabric panel.
Roller blinds are also made of a thick cloth or other materials that can be easily rolled up with a chain or spring that has been loaded before. There is no blade that holds the curtain spine, so the ingredients are neatly wrapped around the aluminum cylinder even when lifted.
Venice blinds are horizontal blades without cloth. The blades are made of wood, vinyl or aluminum and neatly gathered when lifted. The blinds allows the light to enter when the blades rotate from top to bottom.
Vertical blinds, also known as Louvre Blinds, are generally similar to the Venice blinds, except that the blades, as the name suggests, are hung vertically, namely from top to bottom. Buildings with large glass walls use vertical blinds to make glare protection when needed while leaving as much light as possible to the interior.
Panel blinds work like vertical blinds because they protect large openings or windows. The difference is, that the panel curtain is mounted on a track system that can be shifted to the left or right.
