Blinds were invented as a way to control the sunlight and privicy, thus are believed to be superior to curtains and draperies due to their increased functionality. The basic function of a blind is to block light and provide privacy. To do that, they need to be adjustable. Adjustability is what makes blinds different. Basic blocking of a window can be done with paper, fabric sheets or other permanent or removable coverings. However, if an occupant wishes to adjust the level of privacy or permit some of the light to enter the room, then blinds are the best option. Blinds are generally available in horizontal and vertical designs thus accommodating the particular requirements of the window or door to be covered. Controls are built in to perform the opening and tilting functions of the modern day blind All blinds must perform these functions in order to meet the consumer demand and specific requirements.
