With such a wide variety of window furnishings available, knowing which to choose for your home can be a real challenge. Blinds have become probably the most popular choice thanks to the sheer number of different types available and their ability to work with rooms of all kinds, but this isn’t always enough to lock a decision in completely. As this is by no means an inexpensive investment, it’s important that you have made the right decision from the get-go.
Installing blinds on windows will provide you with a number of benefits that other furnishings cannot, including:
They provide you with privacy
You won’t just be controlling the amount of sunlight that’s permitted to enter your home, you’ll also be able to keep the prying eyes of neighbours and passers by at bay. Blinds offer a level of privacy that other window furnishings simply can’t match. Top down shades are the best solution if you want to maximise your home’s privacy but, really, any option will prevent those from outside getting a look at your belongings.
They’re excellent for home décor
Available in a variety of colours, patterns and styles, the choice to install blinds on windows is a great one if improving your home’s décor is a must. Remember to pay close attention to the size of your home’s windows to ensure that you’ve ordered to correct size – in the case of larger openings, you may have to invest in multiple shades. If you have children or pets, we also recommend a cordless option.
They come in a variety of materials
The sheer number of materials that blinds can be made from allows you to pick one that best suits your application, when it comes to both cost and style. Complement your timber bedroom setting with timber shades – or, if timber is out of your price range, compromise with fauxwood. Other available materials include an array of fabrics, aluminium and plastics. You are sure to find a perfect match for every application.
They help save money and energy
Sunlight passing through the glass is magnified many times over, which can result in the room getting warmer than usual. This can be beneficial during the winter, but can be uncomfortable in the summer. Having blinds on windows can help to keep the room at a more constant and comfortable temperature. They also prevent your furniture and soft furnishings from fading and lower your energy bills.
They are low maintenance
One of the best things about blinds is that they have relatively low maintenance requirements. In most cases, all you need to do is give them the occasional dust using the brush attachment of your vacuum or a soft cloth. When compared with curtains (which have a more thorough cleaning routine), the choice is easy. As an added bonus, these shades also last longer so there is little need for you to replace them.
As you can see, there are quite a number of benefits associated with the use of Canberra blinds on windows – and there are plenty more that we haven’t even outlined here! With the sheer variety of different types available, rest assured that you’ll he able to find blinds to complement every room of your home (from bedrooms and living areas to the kitchen and bathrooms). Even so, do not hesitate to seek assistance with your decision if required.
