Blinds vs. Shutters

Your windows will not be able to block out all of the UV rays that enter your home, so secondary coverage like blinds or shutters help to control the amount of light that enters the room. As well, for privacy and insulation purposes, blinds protect from unwanted eyes and help to keep the heat in.

GreenFox Windows and Doors offers windows and doors, and can help you with blinds too. You can check out their website for more product information.


Windows in Edmonton need to be covered throughout the year, as UV rays enter the home during all seasons. Blinds are the cheapest and most functional option. They are practical and versatile for any home. There are a wide variety of styles, designs, and colours to choose from, and can be adjusted as to how much light you would like to enter your home.

Roller blinds are a great option, as they can be rolled up or down by pulling a cord. For a more formal look, Roman blinds are a more appropriate option. They are usually made out of fabric and fold up into large pleats. Venetian blinds can be made from a number of different materials, but are usually made from metal or plastic. For simple and durable window coverings, blinds are a great place to start. Learn more about the wide variety of blinds that are available.


Shutters are a unique structure that are fitted to your window, and adds value to your home. They happen to be child safe, as there are no cords needed for shutters. This eliminates any sort of possible choking hazard. Edmonton Windows can benefit greatly from the added insulation shutters provide. Wood is the most commonly used material for shutters. They’re easy to maintain and clean, as the large wooden slats are easy to open and close for access. You are able to control the amount of light that you want to come into a room, by tilting the slats to the desired angle. Shutters may not be as economical for everyone, as they are more expensive and have a more complicated installation process.

Whether you are looking for an economical or unique option, there is something out there for everyone. GreenFox Windows and Doors are ready to help with all of your windows and door needs. Check out the wide variety of doors, blinds, and windows Edmonton has to offer.
