Blinds, The Great Substitute
The house is one of our primary needs. It provides us with shelter, and it protects us from outside things like animals, weather or random debris. It also both protects us from heat and keeps it from getting outside. This makes sure that the temperature inside the house is just right for the people living in it. This is because of the parts of the house and way it was designed and built. Each part of the house has its own function, and because of this, the style of each part of the house is unique and specifically tailored to its purpose. This includes the floor, roof, walls, the rooms, and of course the interior. The floor is designed to be strong, sturdy and comfortable so people will find it easier to walk on. The roof is designed to be heat-proof, rust-proof, water-proof and able to stop anything falling from the sky to fall through the house, thus the materials made of it are usually steel or concrete. The walls are design to keep the building standing and to stop anything from coming from the side, so it is made of concrete or sturdy glass. The rooms are designed depending on the purpose of the room, like bedrooms are supposed to be cool and comfortable. But the interior is what people living in the house notice the most, since they see it all the time and they use it all the time. It’s designed are according to the taste of the owner of the house. This includes the chairs, tables, wall color, appliances and anything else the people living in it use. And naturally, since we originally belonged outside, most people would long to go out or at least see it through something. There are many ways to do this like getting a window or curtain. But these things, like the glass of a greenhouse, easily let heat through them but for some reason, they barely let heat escape. Another way to do this is to use blinds.
- Blinds are like the combination of a window and a curtain. They let you see through them and give you a way to not let heat or anything inside. They work like jalousie windows but they’re a lot better at blocking heat and light while letting fresh air and a glimpse of the outside world.
- Most blinds have the standard horizontal slabs on top but a few centimeters away from each other. They have a string that you can pull to switch between letting the air, heat and light in or stop them from getting in while letting some air pass through so that it’s still fresh and breezy.
- They can be made with a number of materials, such as wood, steel or plastic. Steel blinds are usually for office buildings, where they focus on not letting the cold air out. Plastic blinds are the usual home blinds, and wooden blinds are for the classy people. No matter what they’re made of, they can do the same job as windows and even more, and at a less cost, since they take less material to make.
