We live in Florida and had the faux wood blinds in all of our rooms like many homes here. It's important to not get too much direct sunlight in your rooms to avoid fading and ruining the floors and furniture. We also don't like going through the house opening and shutting the blinds all day so we had the old blinds at an angle so it was light filtering, you could see out and we didn't have to change the angle daily. That's great except the dust lands on each blade so they were constantly dirty and time consuming to clean.
We bought these Black Out blinds for our Main Bedroom for privacy, especially since the windows face the road. They are much nicer looking then the 'old fashioned' black out blinds they had decades ago. From the inside they have a nice woven fabric look to them which is a nice upgrade. The room faces northeast so we just leave them down until about 10:30am and then open them fully so the room is much brighter than it ever was with the old heavy faux wood blinds.
