Blinds VS Curtains: What’s Right For You

It used to be that blinds were for the office and curtains for the home but with the innovations in blinds over the past decade this is no longer the case. Blinds are stunning, fashionable and functional, they give you greater freedom in controlling your environment so if you’re looking for a beautiful adornment to your windows consider choosing blinds, here’s why:

Mastering Light

Curtains have two basic settings: open and closed, with blinds you have greater control. You decide how much light you want streaming into your room so on a sunny day you aren’t simply left facing two extremes. Blinds are easily adjustable so whether you want the full effect of the sunshine or a subtle glow the choice is yours.

Complete Versatility

With the multitude of materials available for blinds nowadays you can find a design to suit rooms of any style. Metal, wood, cane and vinyl blinds are all popular material choices and designs ranging from Venetian to Pleated to even the soft fabrics of Roman mean that you can create a sleek, modern, minimalist look or a soft and comfortable feel. Blinds can even be coupled with curtains so you can have the best of both worlds.

Easy Maintenance

Blinds are both durable and easy to maintain. Wood, plastic and metals don’t hold dust mites or animal hairs in the same way that curtain fabric does and can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth. Because blinds don’t dangle and don’t hold stains they are more suitable for homes with pets and small children.

The Illusion of Space

Because of their streamlined look and the lack of wall space they occupy blinds help make rooms feel bigger and brighter so if space is a factor they can make you feel like you have a whole new room.
