So I just finished mounting the last screw on my window frame for my new blinds. These are not just any ordinary blinds though. They are my new shutter blinds Manchester, or also known as a plantation shutter.
Mine are made from hardwood although a lot of them recently are being mass produced from different material for production reasons.
These new blinds can completely cut out all light and air flow through the window into the room if I choose to close them that way. The only thing is that unlike traditional blinds these cannot be lifted or pulled out.
Here is the test. I turn the knob rotating it to close the blinds and see how well my installation went. With a smile on my face the blinds close completely cutting out all light and air as intended in the first place.
With proper installation I would definitely recommend these blinds to friends and family.
