A simple favorite that is absolutely practical.
Aluminum blinds are private and functional at an affordable price. Available in .006 guage aluminum for economic needs or a stronger .008 guage aluminum for more active enviroment. Sizes available are micro (1/2′), mini (1′), and macro (2′). Want to use in a bedroom? Ask about privacy routing holes. This allows the light to be blocked from the cord holes. Since these holes are routed towards the back of the slat, they provide maximum closure when slats are tilted down.
Options available: Cordless and remote control (tilt only).
Can be ultrasonically cleaned
