The Art of Mastering Blinds

Buying Blinds And Curtains

If you’re considering a complete makeover and redesign or if you’re just looking to refresh the look of a certain room in your house, you should pay attention to your blinds and curtains. Windows are one of the major focal points of any room, which is why it is vital to dress it correctly. On the other hand, try not to overdress the window will make it look dated and cluttered while under dressing it will make it appear uninteresting and bear.

When buying blinds and curtains for that reason, there are few things that must be taken into account, which will be discussed below.

Number 1. Pattern and color – color is a vital consideration every time you are buying blinds and curtains so try to look around the room and understand colors that are in used already. You’ve got to check what color is the carpet, are the walls papered or painted, is there a pattern on the wallpaper and so forth. The curtains must be able to complement other accessories used in the room. To give you a basic example, if you’ve got patterned wallpaper, then consider using a plain curtain because adding patterned curtain to patterned wall gives it an unsightly and confusing look.

Number 2. Style – your curtains must fit in with the room’s style. Plain curtains with bold features like steel trimmed eyelets will look nice if you’re after a modern and fresh look. A more conventional style will be suitable if the room has period features.

Number 3. Functionality – what’s the main purpose for making use of blinds and curtains? If they are intended for decoration, then the style alone has to be your main consideration but if you are looking for curtains to keep out light when closed, you have to buy heavy fabric which will be lined with suitable black out material. Black out curtains are more popular in bedrooms and come in different colors and styles. You have to take into consideration of your care routine as well. Try to avoid buying delicate fabrics like silk which require specialist care that could be expensive if you want curtains that can be ironed and washed easily.

Number 4. Accessories – it doesn’t make sense to buy on a nice pair of blinds and curtains and then neglect the accessories in the end. Choose a curtain pole that complements your new purchase is a must. Once again, you can get some inspirations by looking around the room. Both chrome and steel poles are quite popular but, it may seem to be out of place if installed in traditional houses and cottages.
