For a home with more of a sleek modern appeal, the panel glide blinds may be the answer for the window treatments. These offer an alternative to simple vertical blinds, offering something unique and different. These blinds work well over windows and doors. The material used for these can be light filtering and even see-through to complete room darkening, depending on the needs for the window. They work well over larger sliding glass door and even double French doors.
Panel blinds are great to use when space is an issue because they stay flush to the window or door. They operate by sliding to the side with the use of a wand. There are no cords, so no worry of hazards to small children. The sleek design gives the room an open and airy feel. When the panels are open, the full view of the window or door offers a way to see the full outdoors without having to tie back drapes or curtains. If you have light filtering or screen material panels, you will not even have to slide the panels to the side to have good light streaming into the room.
These panels come in colors and textures to match any modern decor. The best word to describe the way these look is dramatic. It gives the appearance of a complete wall at night, when closed. It makes for a nice backdrop and gives extra security from the window or door.
Another way to use panel glide blinds is as a room divider. All you have to do is install the tracks across the ceiling where you want to erect a wall. It is a great way to divide a room for temporary effects of making extra rooms. This is perfect for an extra large room and offers a way to open the room up when needed as well.
Using these panel glide blinds are an inexpensive means to decorating a modern area of the home and certainly an inexpensive means to making more rooms out of a big space as room dividers. Panel blinds over doors and windows serve as a barrier from the outside, helping to keep cool air in during the summer and warm air in during the winter. They serve to provide window covering, energy saving and beautiful modern design for any room in the home or even in the office.
