Home renovation, or home décor? Should I go with basic colors or try something different? New furniture or revamping the old one? Wooden flooring or going all out with tiles? Well, these are the things which come in our mind when we think about giving new look to our home. Blinds are probably the last thing we consider while decorating our home. Most of us forget that blinds are more than a weather protection shield for our rooms. They play a major role in pulling up and completing the look of the room.
But you can’t go all out with buying the very first blinds you come across. Window decoration is like an art, and it is not about hiding the windows behind blinds anymore. You’ll need to make sure you know how to measure the window space properly, to ensure your blinds look spectacular.
Color Combination Matters
Whether your purpose is weather protection, privacy, or style, you can’t forgo the shade of blinds. Most of the people think that blinds come only in white, beige or grayish color. But the fact is, there are vast color options available in blinds and you should select them as per the theme and style of your home.
Choose Material Wisely
Besides the color of blinds, choosing the right material for blinds is also essential. Just like color, the material should also fit the décor and interior of the room. If you are looking for a vintage touch, then bamboo blinds could work nicely. For a rustic interior, wooden blinds will be a great option to complement the look. While polyester, plastic, and aluminum blinds are perfect for a modern feel.
Consider Blind Maintenance
You can wash curtains if they get dirty, but what about blinds? Not all blinds material can be treated in the same manner. You can clean plastic and aluminum blinds with a soap water solution. But what about polyester blinds, or wooden blinds? If you are choosing blinds for a room that you are going to use frequently, or you have kids at your home, then go for blinds that are easy to clean. Otherwise, blind maintenance could be a headache for you.
Don’t Forget Your Budget
Not all blinds will cost the same. For instance, wooden blinds will be more expensive than polyester blinds. If you are buying blinds for only a couple of windows, then expensive blinds might not hurt your budget too much. But things can get pretty expensive if you are getting blinds for your entire house. To keep a more affordable budget, you can also choose expensive blinds for the living room area, or bedroom and buy a less expensive deal for attic, outhouse, or bathrooms.
So, this year, don’t forget to add blinds in your home renovation budget while following these tips. These tips will give your home the required style statement and perfect vibes.
