Blinds are the products which have slowly substituted them and considering some of the advancements in this segment of the industry over the years, it's really no surprise.
If it was all about manipulating levels of light, this article probably wouldn't have made it into print though. The truth is, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Another reason why they seem to be getting less and less popular is because of the immense money-saving potential that blinds are now giving homeowners.

Blinds manufacturers have released everything from solar shades to insulated blinds, with these able to block out the solar rays and insulate a room respectively.

Of course, there will be instances where curtains will be completely suitable for a room. There will also be some households that swear by curtains and will never consider changing them, regardless of what else is on offer. However, it’s certainly fair to say that there has been a major shift in how windows across the country are now treated – and most of this is due to the major advancements that the blinds industry has initiated.
