A lot depends on the manufacturer. Some manufacturers are renowned for producing fantastic finishes; finishes that successfully replicate the intricacies of a real wood finish. Others try nobly, but ultimately fail miserably. If you're going to install a set of blinds made from faux wood in your own living room, you should ideally aim for a set that look the part. Some blinds can become discoloured under intense sunlight - this automatically impedes the quality of the finish.
You probably already know what a window blind is and that it provides a decorative and sometimes affordable way to control the natural lighting in a room. You also most likely also know that blinds come in various colors, sizes and materials and can be customized to your taste. But what are the parts of a window blind and how do they work? Let's start at the top and work to the bottom.
Headrail. This is located at the top of the blind and where the tracks for movement can be found. Valance. This is the covering for the track. The valance of a blind can be made of wood, plastic, aluminum, vinyl or fabric, and its durability is determined by the quality of materials used in its construction.
Ladders. The ladders are what hold the horizontal slats in place. They are threaded through each slat, thus creating a ladder look. Tapes. Typically found on wood or aluminum window blinds, tapes are unlike ladders in that they run down the front of the slats to bind them together. Bottom Rail. The end of the window blind construction, this is hardware that is used as an anchor to hold the blinds in place. The bottom rail is normally coordinated to the window blind itself.
