How to choose the right Blinds for your home or office.
The basic criteria are – the colour, look, style, functionality, cost and suitability and if that is not enough, the more modern concerns to consider is the energy saving properties and the block out fabrics – there is so much to consider and then lastly but most importantly is – “Did I make the right choice?”
To help you come to the right decision, here are a few tips to consider when choosing your blinds:
Choosing the style of the blind is your starting point – do you prefer Roller or Venetian Blinds? The style you choose needs to reflect your room, its theme and your personal style.
Venetian Blinds are all the rage at the moment due to the number of finishes and colours they now are available in, as well as being affordable. They are perfect for light control and privacy.
Roller Blinds are a popular choice due to their attractive and fresh design. They are versatile and can enhance any interior design. Roller Blinds are functional when it comes to controlling light, providing privacy and good insulation.
Interior blinds come in a range of materials that can vary in suitability depending on your space.
For areas exposed to high heat, consider Aluminium Venetian, Plaswood Venetians or Block-Out Roller Blinds.
For areas which have humidity or moisture, e.g. Kitchens and Bathrooms – the Plaswood Venetian Blind would be the best choice.
- Consider your Window
Different styles of blinds open and close differently. Depending on the type of window or door you have, you may be influenced by a particular blind style.
Access is also an important factor to take into consideration, as you need to be able to reach the cord or wand to operate.
For example, if you need easy access to a sliding door, a Vetical Blind or a Roller Blind over the door is recommended due to their simple functionality and clean minimal style.
- Light and Privacy Control
Ask yourself – “How much privacy and how much light control do I need?” Your answer may affect the style of blind you choose.
Venetian Blinds are the perfect solution for living spaces because they put you in control of your light and privacy needs. Simply adjust the angle of the slats to the desired angle.
Block Out Roller Blinds are the perfect choice for a Bedroom as they provide a dark room for a good night’s sleep.
In closing, the blind that you have chosen must be able to meet your requirements as well as enhancing your room and décor.
