Tips On Choosing The Best Blinds

Home & Garden Blog

Blinds do much more than create privacy, they are also a way to express your personality and creativity, and they can be used to add a glamorous feel to your home. All these qualities make blinds such an important component of the home, and before selecting the right ones for your home, ensure that they blend with your interior and match your practical needs. Here are some tips to help you make the best decision.

Limited wall space

If your home has got limited wall space, you'd be doing yourself a huge favor by getting roll up blinds. These kinds of blinds let in maximum sunlight by rolling up to the top of your window, and they create maximum space for it too. This will give you the opportunity to utilize the most amount of sunlight in your day, and they don't interfere with any treatments that you may have on your window.

Wide windows

If you've got sliding doors or wide window expanses, then you will certainly benefit from vertical blinds. These blinds are designed to stack off at the sides of the windows and can be opened to the left, right or from the middle. Vertical blinds also do a good job when you are looking out for your furniture and want to prevent their damage from too much sunlight.

Lighting in the room

Selecting the right blind also lies in your choice of how much light you want to let in. If you are a particularly private person, or you want to keep your bedroom away from prying eyes, get blinds that close tightly. Blinds like venetian blinds give you total control of the light and enable you to adjust the angle of the blind depending on the amount of light you want to let in or the time of day it is. Closing them completely shuts out light, and opening them fully floods the room with maximum amount of rays.

Style and personality

Blinds are a good way to express yourself and add décor to your home. Roman blinds can give you a contemporary feel while still adding elegance, and aluminum blinds are best when you want to make a statement. They give a modern stylistic feel to your home. Wooden blinds can give you a softer feel. They can be used to bring out a vintage vibe when finished light, while dark wood blinds create a modern and sleek feel.

Renovating Your House

Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Julie and I live in a large house in the suburbs of Perth, Australia. My husband and I moved into our current home a couple of years ago and since then we have been working to transform it into our dream place. The house itself is lovely, but the interior looked like something from the 1970s. When we started our renovation project we didn't have a clue what we were doing. However, with each job we completed and each mistake we made, we learnt a new skill. I decided I would like to share what we have learnt here.
