There are several things to consider when deciding on the best blinds for your home. These include:
Beautiful window treatments can make or break a home.
Choosing a style of blind is good starting point on deciding the right quality blinds for you. Do you prefer roller or Venetian blinds? Vertical or horizontal styles? These can enhance any room, but the style you choose needs to reflect your room, its theme and your personal taste.
From a splash of color to modern, clean lines, blinds can be bold or subtle. Knowing how you want your window treatments to complement your home can make shopping for blinds all the more easier!
Blinds come in a range of materials that vary in suitability depending on your space. For areas exposed to high heat, aluminium Venetians, white timber Venetians or block-out roller blinds are ideal. These have white or reflective backing that can help eliminate any excess warmth and increase energy efficiency.
High moisture room, such as bathrooms and kitchens, are environments where materials that resist moisture and mould growth are beneficial. PVC and aluminium Venetian blinds are specifically designed for wet areas and are perfect for the bathroom or kitchen.
Knowing the sizes of the windows you want to cover will help you choose your blinds more wisely. If you want a blind installed inside the recess of your window this is where you should measure. For outside-mounted styles, including the window frame in your measurements is important.
Window and Room Size
Different styles of blinds open and close differently. The placement of your furniture or the type of window or door you have will influence your choice of blinds. Ease of use and access is also an important consideration, as you need to be able to reach the cord or wand of the blinds. For example, a roller blind over the door is recommended for sliding doors due to its simple functionality and clean style.
Another major deciding factor in picking blinds for your living space includes the shapes and size of your windows. For wider windows installing vertical or roller blinds are highly recommended. If you have smaller, narrower windows, horizontal blinds look best.
Additionally, deciding on a style of blind that maximise the room’s space is also important. Inside the recess is a good option for windows in small rooms that do not have much wall space. This is also ideal if you are layering your blind with curtains. For larger rooms, choosing a blind that sits outside the recess will create visual balance as well as block out more light.
Light and Privacy Control
How much light and privacy control you need will play a deciding factor on the type of blind you choose.
Venetian blinds are an ideal solution for general living areas because they put you in full control of your light and privacy needs. The cord/wand operation will adjust the angle of the slats, at the desired angle for full light and visibility, or completely private and a dark room.
For a bedroom, block-out blinds are a popular choice, as they provide a dark room for a good night’s rest.
