There’s nothing more annoying than a disgruntled tenant complaining about the blinds in your rental property. On the other hand, we understand that spending money unnecessarily on your rental property isn’t the thing you love doing most! After all, you’re not the one living in it so you don’t want to overspend on the furnishings…
The temptation when it comes to rental properties is always to spend as little as possible. However, when it comes to window treatments, this can be a big mistake. Many rental homeowners have paid dearly for installing cheap blinds: they simply don’t last, and tenants don’t fail to make sure you know about it…!
In the long run, it pays to buy quality window treatments for your rental property. What you need are blinds that are durable, attractive and easy to maintain. So, what are the best types of blinds to use? We’ve put together this list of suggestions to make your decision easier:
Always stylish; always beautiful and always practical. Roller blinds remain an all-time favourite for one simple reason: they work. They’re easy to clean, available in a huge range of colours and fabrics to suit any palette and they’re excellent value for money.
Another versatile and affordable blind which suits most home and decor styles. Vertical blinds are a good all-rounder: maximum style with minimum fuss. They’re a great option for bedrooms and living areas because the blades can be rotated for maximum privacy without blocking out all the natural light.
Venetian blinds are a chic and practical option for kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. They can be supplied in either timber or aluminium and are available in a huge range of colours. The rotating blades of the Venetian blind make them another attractive option in situations where you need both privacy and natural light.
Panel Glide Blinds
Wondering what types of blinds are available to treat sliding or French doors? Panel Glide Blinds are the perfect option: they’re easy to use, beautiful and add that extra touch of luxe to your living or bedroom spaces.
If thermal properties are at the top of your priority list, Luxaflex Duette shades are your best option for maintaining an even internal temperature inside your rental property all year round. Available in three levels of opacity – sheer, translucent or block-out – Duette Shades are as practical as they are gorgeous.
Whatever types of blinds you choose to install in your rental property it’s essential that you put safety first. Be sure to install any safety devices such as wall-mounted clips for pull cords that may be supplied by the manufacturer and leave warning tags attached for your tenants to read. Remember, your tenant may have small children and it’s your duty to ensure that your window treatments are safe and secure.
