Blinds are quite different from curtains in that they allow you more control over how much light you want to let in and they can be adjusted. Curtains are either open or closed, but blinds may be lifted, lowered, and opened to the point you want them to be.
Blinds are a good choice for a window covering for many reasons, including:
They Offer More Privacy
Closed curtains will prevent anyone from seeing in, but they also block the light and view. Blinds can be partially opened, tilted up or down, and they will continue to let in light. You can even see outside with the right angle, so it’s a good way to get privacy while still enjoying daylight in your space. This makes blinds perfect for bedrooms.
Blinds Are Easy to Clean
With most blinds, you can clean them very easily. As long as they’re not made of fabric, they can be wiped down with a damp cloth and they are instantly in great condition. Eliminating the dust is simple, making it very easy to keep your window treatments looking good. Curtains, however, require washing, drying and rehanging to make sure they look amazing.
Choose Your Material
Blinds come in a range of materials, including metal, wood, and plastic or PVC. They’re designed to look great, plus they come in a range of colours. You can select the perfect material to fit your interior design and to match your furniture. You also have the advantage of choosing from horizontal or vertical slats to best set off the windows you’re decorating.
They’re Energy Efficient
Did you know that you can reduce the heat in a space by 45% by closing your blinds? They’re quite efficient at blocking out light and heat, but they can also be opened slightly to allow in enough light to prevent the need for indoor lighting during the day.
Blinds Look Great
When you choose the right colours and designs for your home, you have blinds that will enhance your overall décor. There is something sophisticated about them that really adds to a space. Since they’re available in a wide variety of styles, there’s always something that will look just right in your space.
In short, blinds are an excellent option for your space and should be considered if you need a window covering.
