The Benefits of Windows with Built-in Blinds
Do you struggle with the cords of your window blinds? At The Board Store, we’ve seen traditional blinds pose an inconvenience time and time again. The string gets tangled, begins to yellow, and creates an overall messy look to your space. And that doesn’t even speak to the more serious issues that corded blinds pose, like the risk of cord strangulation for children. The solution? Built-in blinds.
These blinds are positioned between two glass panes and can be operated using a remote control or a magnetic slider that’s placed along the side of the window. There are many benefits of having windows with built-in blinds installed at your home, including that they are:
Instead of fussing with and adjusting the cords on traditional blinds, you can use a magnetic slider on built-in blinds that makes opening and closing them incredibly simple. If you choose the motorized version, you can avoid manual operation entirely—Afterall, what’s easier than pushing a button?
Built-in blinds that are behind properly sealed glass don’t accumulate dust and other allergens the way that traditional blinds do, so you won’t have to worry about cleaning or dusting them.
According to the watch group known as Parents for Window Blind Safety, there have been about 600 cases of cord-related incidents—namely strangulation—among children and pets in the last 30 years. But since built-in blinds are cordless, they eliminate this risk, giving you priceless peace of mind when your pets and young children are at home.
If you want to instantly elevate your home’s interior style, installing built-in blinds will do the trick. Built-in blinds have a much cleaner and more sophisticated look than their corded counterparts, which have an outdated and messy appearance.
Over time, traditional corded blinds become brittle and often end up breaking, especially when young children and pets are involved. This causes many homeowners to have to replace their blinds every couple of years. Since built-in blinds are located behind the glass, they are safe from regular wear and tear and will likely last as long as your windows do. In fact, some even come with 10- or 20-year warranties.
