Decorating with blinds is a great way to have practical window dressing options that also look great and are very convenient. When it comes to roller blinds and some other types of blinds the wonderful thing is how easy they are to use. In seconds you can get complete privacy or you can use them to open up and let in more light into the room. Certain types of blinds are better than others for certain rooms because they are easy to wipe clean, or very low maintenance and can handle the steam and dampness generated. But blinds are also a great window dressing choice for all rooms in the home too. Here is a look at how they can be used.
Different blinds for different tastes and homes
There are a lot of different styles and types of blinds to consider, roller as mentioned, roman blinds, Venetian, vertical, blackout, and honeycomb to name just a few. Which you choose depends on budget, the room they are going in, what style you prefer and also what other practical things you are focussing on. For example, honeycomb blinds are great for insulation and energy saving, blackouts are great when you need a completely darkened room. You can get any blind in a range of different colours and styles and in some cases, different materials or fabrics. You can create contrasts with different materials, panels and prints. Blinds are easier to look after than curtains and you can get them at a range of prices from budget-friendly to very luxurious.
Blackout blinds for bedrooms
As mentioned a blackout blind is one that is made from particular materials that are designed to block out a maximum amount of light. If you live where light shines in at night from street lights and such, or you need to sleep during the day, or you have children that nap in the day, then these are a great option. They are also good for some sound insulation so if you are concerned about not sleeping well try these blinds!
Blinds for the kitchen
When you have blinds in the kitchen you want to choose ones that allow in a good amount of light so you can see well and cook. Having a light kitchen adds to it feeling open and airy and roller blinds make a great choice as they are easy to maintain. You can choose all kinds of design to match the look of your kitchen.
Blinds for the bathroom
When you have a window in the bathroom it is good for letting out the humidity that builds up in there, but is less great for issues of privacy! With a blind, you can ensure the window is fully covered and you just need to choose ones that are waterproof, so the damp does not damage them.
Blinds for the living room
Whether you choose roller blinds or Roman blinds or another type, your living room as a place where you likely watch TV, socialise, read, use your devices and more. You will want a blind that helps reduce glare, gives you privacy when you need it, but lets in the light on a sunny day too.
