Having the right blinds for your windows is an important step, not only in the visual appeal of your home but also in the comfort level. Different blinds serve different purposes, with some blocking all light, others helping to block drafts and some making it so you can still have an unobstructed view of the world outside your home. Choosing the right ones can be a daunting task. Do not fear though, with a few tips, you’ll be able to determine the right ones for you.
Fabric Vs. Vinyl
One consideration is the amount of dirt and dust in your home. If you have lots of pets and people, blinds that are difficult to keep clean of hair and dust may not be the best choice for you. Easy clean ones like vinyl blinds may be a better choice. Fabrics will also make a difference as different textures will hold dust and hair differently than other textured materials.
It is also important to consider the function you are seeking for your blind. Do you want it to block out all light from entering your windows? Are you looking to have it reduce or remove the drafts coming in through the window? Or are you looking for a blind that makes it so that others cannot see into your home? Depending on the function you are seeking will determine the right blinds for your windows.
Size and Aesthetics
Size makes a big difference too, this can play out in a few different ways. Firstly, the obvious one, is the size of the window you need to cover. Some blinds will only come in specific sizes, others can be customized to fit whatever size window you have. Secondly, is the size of each individual blind slat. Some prefer the appearance of the mini-blinds, while others prefer ones with a much chunkier, larger size and style. Different sized slats, as well as differently sized blinds, can make a big difference in the overall appearance of the window, and the room as a whole.
Colours and designs are another aspect to consider. Different types of blinds may or may not come in the colours or designs that you want for your space. Wooden slat blinds are better suited for rooms wanting the more natural wooden style. They wouldn’t make sense for a space where the blinds for your windows need to come with a pop of colour. Painting over the beautiful wood slats would greatly remove a big part of the appeal of wooden blinds. Vinyl blinds, on the other hand, can come in a wide variety of colours and styles that may better suit a bright modern space.
