Decorating a dwelling can be fun and exciting, but it can also be a daunting process for people who struggle with co-ordinating colours and styles. There are many decisions to be made, such as the colour of the internal walls, the type of flooring, matching the furniture to the rest of the décor, and finally, the window treatments. Is it any wonder then, that sometimes, the windows become an afterthought?
Take the Time to Get the Windows Right
However, window dressings can make or break a room, and if not carefully chosen, all the effort put into everything else will be wasted. The first consideration is whether to install blinds or curtains. This will be a personal choice where cost, privacy needs, reducing energy costs and framing a stunning view are just a few of the issues that need attention.
Window blinds are popular because they are versatile, available in a range of styles, finishes and colours, and their clean lines suit the currently popular minimalist décor. They are suitable for common situations such as privacy from neighbours, to block out a busy street, and for light, heat and acoustic control.
What’s not to like about Roller Blinds?
Roller blinds are a perennial favourite. They are simple to operate and offer complete privacy and light control when extended. With many fabric choices available, they suit informal settings and are perfect for wet areas such as kitchens, and bathrooms. If reducing energy costs is a major issue, they are also available in a cellular fabric, commonly known as honeycomb, which acts as an insulator to control internal temperatures.
Plenty of Other Styles to Choose from
For applications such as living, dining, master bedrooms and others, there is a range of other, more suitable styles. Romans are perfect for windows with furniture under them as they are contained within the window frame. Venetians are low-maintenance, elegant, versatile and come in various slat widths, colours and materials, which can be tilted to provide privacy or to control air flow.
Here at Blind Concepts , we offer clients a blind cleaning and repair service that is inexpensive and environmentally responsible. We collect the blinds from premises, take them to our workshop to be cleaned using our ultrasonic cleaning process, and return them to the clients, ready to re-hang. Our process does all the hard work, leaving the clients to enjoy their blinds, which now look as good as new.
Curtains Also Have Their Place
Like blinds, curtains are also available in many fabrics, styles and colours. Curtains are perfect for a draped look, adding softness to the décor, as well as elegance to the entire space. Rather than make a choice between the two, many homeowners combine both for a complete look.
