In the world of blinds, there are many different models. There is something for every taste, budget and use. Each type of blind has its own personality! That's why you should choose each of them carefully, taking into account their particularities. Here are a few tips to guide you!


Alternating Laths Blind


The sheer (horizontal) blind looks a lot like the alternating blind, but with a little something extra: it has an adjustable center section that allows you to increase or decrease the amount of outside light entering the room. Convenient! We love it especially for large windows.


Alternating Blinds: THE VERSATILE ONE

The alternating laths blind has the power to offer different levels of privacy thanks to its mix of translucent and darkening coverings. You can hide completely from curious onlookers, you can have an impeccable view of neighborhood life. When the color of blinds are pale, even when it’s closed, you can diffuse daylight throughout the room in addition to blocking harmful UV rays. It's beautiful in every room of the house!
