Vinyl Vs. PVC Blinds
Pros and Cons so you can make the right choice:
PVC is a synthetic material used in a multitude of plastic products in various industries, and, also used in Window Blinds.
Polyvinyl chloride a.k.a PVC blinds have been a popular choice for window coverings. These Blinds cover most of the window and they work well in humid rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. They won’t crack or fade, which is why they have been in big demand for a lot of home owners and tenanted properties.
There are a lot of other Window covering choices such as Vinyl, timber and many more, so let’s evaluate the Pro’s and Con’s before you buy.
- PVC blinds have the benefit of being affordable when you’re on a budget.
- Being a synthetic material, it has high durability and can handle extreme UV light from the sun without warping, cracking or fading. The material also gives you peace of mind by knowing that you can use them in any moist environment without having the fear of rust.
- Save on heating and cooling costs when you choose to install PVC material made blinds. Its insulation properties assist in keeping your home or office warm in winter and cool in summer
Firstly, we feel that the Pros heavily weigh out the cons, but sometimes PVC Blinds may seem to leave a cluttered look. You may want to opt out for a more natural look. Customers may also have doubts about purchasing a synthetically made product and keeping these installed in their homes.
Vinyl blinds are the new standard in the home improvement window world. Being easy to clean, moisture resistant, and serve their purpose of blocking unwanted light. Aluminium blinds in the past did the jobs that vinyl blinds now perform, which means safety and durability as they won’t rust or cut fingers.
Vinyl blinds are cost effective and come in a wide variety of styles including vertical blinds. They aren’t as durable or visually appealing as some other choices, but, functionally, they are very sound.
Vinyl blinds however do not insulate your windows. While they are considered affordable and attractive you may want to choose another fabric to insulate heat. We recommend the Galaxy Cellular Blinds. The ergonomic design of the honeycomb-like cells traps the heat, which means less energy consumption and more comfort.
