Top Tips For Choosing Blinds For Your Home

If you’ve ever thought that you needed to revamp a room in your home but have no idea where to start, then the easiest way to accomplish this is by using practical window treatment ideas. Probably, the most affordable yet aesthetically stunning idea is incorporating quality blinds in your home. Beautiful and functional blinds can enhance the decor of any room to a whole new level of elegance. From block out blinds to Holland Blinds, there’s no dearth of options available here when it comes to choosing blinds that can add interest and character to any room. To put it simply – blinds can provide your rooms with a sophisticated, finished look. It doesn’t matter whether you opt for aluminium venetians or vertical blinds, the choices are endless.

Let’s face it – these many exciting options in blinds can leave any inexperienced buyer overwhelmed and frustrated at the very thought of choosing the best one for his/her home. The best way out is to choose functionality over style. Functionality is obviously more important, and it depends on your exact needs. For instance in order to attain total darkness and complete privacy, buying block out blinds is your best option. On the other hand, if you are looking for light filtering blinds, then blinds with vanes made of translucent fabric would work best for you.

Other factors that can help you narrow down your choices in window treatment ideas are – your budget, time you can devote to cleaning and maintenance, safety features you need and your preferred style, among others. Once you are sure of your own needs, you can focus on the features of blinds. Let’s have a look at some factors that can help you accomplish this goal with aplomb.

1. Material: If you are looking for cheap but durable options opt for polyester, vinyl or aluminium blinds. Depending on the material used, different types of blinds have different thermal insulation properties. Blinds are available in a plethora of material choices, such as fabric, wood, aluminium venetians and roller or Holland Blinds.

2. Colour and Texture: In order to choose the best texture and colour for your blinds, consider the purpose of the room in which you are planning to use them. To achieve a formal look, use simple colours and texture for a minimalistic appearance. Alternatively, for a casual look and feel, you can experiment with bright colours so that your blinds will pop rather than blending with your interiors. When it comes to choosing patterns for your blinds, you’ll need to take a closer look at the furniture in your room. You should choose solid colours for blinds if you’ve patterned furniture, and vice versa.

3. Types: Blinds with horizontal slats are probably the most common blinds in Australia, however, if you want easy to clean blinds, vertical blinds would be the most practical option as they do not hold dust the way horizontal slats do. Vertical blinds are less susceptible to gather dust than the horizontal ones. ‘Block out’ blinds in Sydney are used to completely block out the sun. These blinds come with blackout lining.
