Blinds are becoming exceedingly popular due to their sleek and stylish appearance, consequently making them a great way to rejuvenate and modernize your home. They also look professional in business environments too. Curtains still remain popular too in many homes and tend to compliment older style buildings better.
However, it is often difficult to decide what type of curtain or blind to go for; there are so many styles available nowadays that it is almost impossible to predict which will look best suited in your home. For ideas take a look at direct fabrics who sell both blinds and curtains.
This blog post aims to give you a helping hand with that problem.
The first and most important point to note is that you should not attempt to over complicate things. PVC blinds are most commonly used in bathrooms for a reason, the exact same reason roman blinds are popular in dining rooms – they suit them. Don’t try to get creative by mixing styles with different rooms as this will just make the room in question look complicated, confused, and cluttered. Both blinds and curtains are commonly used in bedrooms and sometimes even both together.
This is not to say that you cannot play around with colours and patterns. If you have a room which you feel is particularly dull and could do with an added bit of life then coloured blinds provide an excellent option for the home. You can spice up a plain cream bedroom with an enticing turquoise or an alluring fuchsia.
Colours are not only great for providing an added zest but they can also allude to added space in a room. Cool and refreshing coloured blinds, such as mint green, can make a room look bigger than it actually is. However, it is important to balance it out by adding warm elements to the room as well, such as a dark brown wooden table, or else the space will in fact end up looking more cramped.
As mentioned earlier, going for the right style of window dressing to match the room in question is of key importance. However, when it comes to dealing with a bedroom it is often hard to know which style is the best because bedrooms themselves vary in style. It is advisable to opt for blinds and curtains made out of blackout fabrics. These are great because they play with the amount of light that can enter a room, ensuring that you are not awakened by piercing sunlight on a warm summer’s day.
When it comes to the actual pattern of the blinds and curtains, this is where you can have fun and let your personality shine through. There are no ‘rules’ so to speak about which pattern is best suited to where, go with your gut and let your creative flair shine through.
So there you have it; some key tips to help you on your way to choosing the right type of window dressing for your room and security.
