Choosing the right type of blinds to suit your home and individual tastes and requirements can be a hard task when there are so many different styles available. You are probably looking for something both practical yet decorative to become a feature in the room, or as a contrast to a particular feature in the room such as the wallpaper. You want to make sure you choose carefully so you can completely transform the look of your room.
Here are some tips to help you make that choice with ease.
- Decide how much light and privacy you are going to want and think about where they will be used. Think moisture levels in kitchens and bathrooms for example and choose something that will withstand it without going moldy.
- Set a budget.
- Are you happy to spend time cleaning your blinds to keep them looking their best? Some blinds will attract more dust than others and some blinds may require more than just an occasional once over with the vacuum cleaner.
- Choose something that suits your room – traditional, modern, casual, formal, shabby chic, vintage etc.? Something that compliments your colors and wallpapers.
- Safety – If you have young children or animals you need to pick a blind which has safety features to stop it coming down at the wrong time, or dangling strings that can cause injury.
