How To Choose The Right Blinds For Your Home

Mar 18, 2008
Window dressings are all important in a modern house. So much time and money is spent on modern decoration and design that when it comes to decorating and furnishing your windows it can be difficult to know which way to turn to keep the desired feel of the room.

Many different styles of window furnishing are available on the market today, there is the old fashioned curtain or drape which is available in many different styles of textile, weight and colour and then there is the more modern approach to window fashion, the blind.

Blinds are available in all shapes and styles from the ever popular roller and Venetian blind to the more modern pleated blind.

All of these blinds offer differing features to one another; it's really a case of how what you want your window to match in with your room.

One thing that all blinds have in common is that they are all available as made to measure, this means that the specialist window blind fitter would make a journey out to your home, measure up the windows that are to be furnished and offer any advice about the choices that you have made.

No one knows window blinds better than the made to measure window blind man.
The benefit of made to measure blinds is easy to see, no more time wasted having to trawl to endless shops with a book full of window measurements only to find out that every other size of blind is stocked except the one that you require.

Advice will be given regarding the style of made to measure blind that you require when ordering, a roller blind tends to be a better option in a smaller room for instance as they lie flat against the windowpane pane, you can still use the windowpane sill for storage, and their neat look means that they can make a room seem larger Many folk use roll blinds in rooms such as bathrooms, as they can be involuted right down for total concealment and then easy involuted up again to allow light into the room.

Blinds are a very neat and some may say clinical option for a window, they keep nice crisp tight lines running through a room and add a touch of symmetry. The way the blind is designed and manufactured also keeps the look as the auto stitching on the blind is as unobtrusive as possible on the front.

Roller blinds come in a cassette mechanism that rolls the blind up inside itself.
These systems hide the roller shade hardware and make a soft, aesthetically pleasing look. Roman blinds are best made from light to intermediate exercising weight fabrics and are commonly seamed, adding a whole new set of lines and parallels to a room.
This can be a stark contrast in a room that may otherwise be quite plain.

When having blinds made to measure you will be given additional decoration options for your blinds such as the added possibility of having a valance board and facia systems fitted to heighten the decor of the room and add a different feel to a room.

Made to measure blinds is a very cost effective way of furnishing a window and can add so much more to a room than drapes or curtains.
