It was only a couple of months ago we completely over hauled our open space. We made some big changes, as well as corrected some of the interior mistakes we made, despite thinking they would work!
One of our biggest interior mistakes were curtains. We have huge windows and thought gorgeous, large, drooping curtains would suit the space, and the height better than anything. But they didn’t. They drowned the space, made the wall look cluttered and didn’t provide the privacy we needed.
Fast forward 2 and a bit years and we were taking the plunge with blinds – and boy were they better. But why should you really consider Perfect fit blinds in your space? Are blinds the way to go when looking for privacy in your home? Stay tuned, I have everything you need to know when looking to swap your curtains to blinds.
So many styles
Blinds *used* to be pretty restrained in the style section. And unless you wanted a office feel, or a up down roller one, there wasn’t that much choice to be had. Safe to say, the styles you now choose from has expanded hugely and well, a blind style can be found to suit any space, and decor trend.
On trend and suited for any modern home are wooden slated blinds. These are perfect if you want something subtle, useful and not too distracting from the decor in the rest of your space. What’s better, these blinds can be installed in any room, so if you’re on the look out for a uniformed blind to use across your entire home, this is the one for you.
Think of your TV
Blinds offer more privacy and coverage than curtains ever could. They efficiently shield your TV from the sun, and offers privacy during the evenings. Whats better, with a perfect fit blind, you’ll never have the seem of the curtain, or the gap of the window to worry about. Which can be hugely annoying if it reflects on the telly!
Whilst curtains might add a bit more character to a window, there is nothing more satisfying to look at, or streamlined, than blinds that are made for the window. Perfectly fitting to your window, they can really finish off the look of your new, re-decorated space.
It’s not just windows
Whilst windows are what most people consider for blinds, using made to measure blinds for the likes of patio doors are a great consideration when offering your room some much needed privacy. They can even be attached and installed to the door itself so they neither take space in the room, and can be used on only one door or even when the doors are open!
You don’t have to ditch the curtains
Whilst many people think you either have one or the other, layered windows have grown ever popular and are a great idea if you want to add warmth, texture and softness to your space. Some times, perfect fit blinds in large windows, recesses and doors can make the space feel very sparse. But that shouldn’t stop you from getting the best privacy and coverage from the daylight. Whilst your curtains may become a more decoration piece rather than a useful one, it will give you the softness your space is looking for.
Curtains vs Blinds is always a dilemma when looking to dress windows and one we have struggled with when first moving into our home. And even after consideration, we chose wrong at first.Blinds are most certainly the best foot forward in any modern home, especially ones that can be perfectly fitted to the size and shape of the window. What’s better, they can be purchased for doors including patio and bi-folding so there is never a space you have to endure lack of privacy orcoverage.
