One reason people buy new window coverings is because they’re looking to increase their light control. After all, too much light can eventually fade your furniture or floors if there’s too much exposure to UV rays.
But don’t let that keep you from blocking away all light. Natural light does have its benefits like:
- Boosting Vitamin D
- Improving your sleep cycle
- Producing serotonin and endorphins
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Saving energy and money on electricity
Now that you know the benefits, you can decide exactly how much light you want in your home. Some products are better suited if you’d like more light versus if you want no light at all. We broke down our products into three broad categories based on how well they allow light in.
High Light Filtering
Light is softly diffused through the sheer fabric of these products.
Moderate Light Filtering
Sunlight flows directly through when the slats are titled open. There is no fabric between the opened slats.
- Faux Wood Blinds
- Wood Blinds
- Mini Blinds
- Vertical Blinds
- Fabric Blinds
- Panel Tracks
- Cellular Shades (or Honeycomb Shades)
Low Light Filtering
Sunlight comes in when these shades are raised. When they are lowered, light typically does not flow through.
