Decorating your house can be demanding and challenging, and every step in the entire process need to be carefully executed. The choice of your window dressing is the most crucial aspect of your interior design project. There are two major window dressing options; curtains and blinds. However, blinds have gained popularity lately because they offer a higher level of practicability and versatility that misses in curtains. The following are other benefits of window blinds.
Blinds give you the ability to control the amount of light entering your room through the window. You can decide to open the vertical slats of the blinds allowing some light in and at the same time create a shield from damaging UV rays and strong sunlight. On the other hand, you can only open or close your curtains, but you cannot regulate the amount of light coming into your room. Window blinds therefore offer you greater flexibility in your home compared to curtains.
Less Visual Space
Blinds are designed to offer you a minimalistic and modern look than curtains. Swags and large amount of fabric in curtains actually takes larger visual space and this can even make your room smaller. Blinds allow more light to enter into your room, reducing the visual space and this can naturally enlarge your room.
Easy to Clean
You can use a simple cloth or feather duster to clean the blinds. With curtains, you should take them down and wash them after a short period of time, preferably four months. Moreover, depending on the type of fabric, you may be required to take in for delicate washing and this can be very expensive. Cleaning blinds is less costly, easier and less stressful.
The blinds are not only readily available, but also less costly. Both the upfront costs and maintenance cost are low compared to curtains. Also, blinds in Liverpool are very versatile hence can be used in any room, unlike curtains which are designed specifically for a particular room making it impossible to be used in different rooms. Their practicability is in their affordability, versatility and low maintenance costs.
