Out with the old in with the new
Curtains have been used for centuries. There is no denying that a splendid set of curtains draped over the window adds a luxurious, bold statement to any room. With heavy fabrics and an arrange of matching accessories available (including tie backs and cushions), curtains draw attention, making the window the rooms focal point.
Nonetheless, in more recent years blinds have taken the world by storm, as they prove to be a more stylish, practical and timeless option. Just by replacing curtains in a room with blinds, the room will feel more spacious and ample. In fact, blinds have more benefits than most people realise.
The rise of the blinds
Blinds offer a range of practicalities and options. From roller blinds to vertical blinds, you’re guaranteed to find a blind which suits your home requirements and interior design taste.
Unlike curtains, blinds allow for privacy while still allowing the right amount of natural light to enter your room, without restricting your outdoor view. They protect your furniture from the effects of strong sunlight and are less prone to fading.
Not only are they easy to fit and easy to maintain, they’re economical to buy too. They filter direct sunlight, allowing for both the right amount of light and a fraction of the heat. Additionally, they have the effect of making a smaller window look bigger, which can really complement a small room.
It is said that all curtains will eventually become dated and with that, blinds offer something in which curtains cannot; due to their innovation, simplicity and durability – blinds will stand the test of time.
Best of both worlds
If you’re still undecided whether to opt for blinds or curtains, we suggest try Roman blinds. Roman blinds are cut from fabric which, to a certain degree, can have the same feel as curtains. Roman blinds bring warmth into a room while blocking any window drafts and boast impeccable style.
