For many years, no self-respecting home owner would dress their windows with blinds unless they were accompanied by curtains. In fact, blinds were the poor cousin to curtains of all fabric types, lengths, styles and colours. Blinds existed just to control the light and curtains were able to strut their stuff in every window of the dwelling, which included the toilet.
Can Blinds Replace Curtains? Yes, if You Choose Well
The wheel has turned full-circle and these days, curtains are optional, an extra that may not be needed because the range of blinds available today are not only functional, but also elegant, stylish and in many cases, simply beautiful. No other window statement is needed if you get the right blind to suit the window.
Naturally, with a business name like Blind Concepts, we know quite a lot about blinds, especially about keeping them looking like new. We clean and repair various types of blinds so that you get the maximum value out of them, instead of replacing them when they begin to look shabby. We do the work on our premises so there is no disruption to your household routine.
Perennial Favourite – Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are functional for most areas, especially utility areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. They are easy to clean, and available in sheer, semi-sheer, opaque and block-out fabrics, giving you complete control of the amount of light entering the room. They also come in a range of colours and patterns to suit your décor.
Romans for Classical Elegance
Smooth when opened and neatly folded when closed, roman blinds have been around forever, and have a classic look that suits a minimalist decorating style. They look good in any type of room, and come with a cord that allows you to choose how much area you want covered.
Modern Venetians are Versatile
A Venetian style of blind nowadays comes in many different materials. People who had them in their homes fifty years ago remember them being hard to clean. Modern venetians are much improved with thinner, more elegant slats that are coated to resist dust. Available in several different types of timber including cedar and wood-composite, as well as aluminium and other materials, they are versatile, attractive and suit most types of windows.
The Newcomer – Honeycomb Blinds
Modern additions to the range are honeycomb or cellular blinds. They are excellent at filtering light, with the bonus of being an efficient insulator of both heat and cold. This helps with energy costs and the cells, from which they are made, come in different varieties and sizes, allowing you to choose what best suits your windows.
There are other styles available, so decide what you want from your window blinds before you purchase. When they are ready for cleaning, just give us a call.
