Choosing a Slat Size

There are a few factors you should consider when selecting commercial blinds for apartments in Milpitas, San Jose, including the slat size. Typically, residential window coverings feature one-inch or two-inch slat sizes, although some faux wood blinds are available in 2.5-inch slats. It might appear that there isn’t a significant variation in slat sizes, but once you have your blinds installed, you’ll notice that this detail can make a major difference.

For large rooms—such as the living room of a unit or the common area of the building—you should usually choose larger slat sizes. Bathroom windows generally have blinds with smaller slat sizes. Consider the size of the window, too. Commercial blinds for apartments that have narrow windowsills and window frames will look well-balanced with a smaller slat. Larger windows and frames look well-proportioned with large blind slats. If you have a very large, panoramic window, consider installing faux wood blinds with 2.5-inch slats to make a dramatic impression on your prospective tenants.
