When decorating a new home or perhaps giving your current décor a spruce up, it can often be difficult to decide between blinds or curtains. While curtains are often viewed as the traditional option, blinds are becoming increasingly popular.
When choosing between curtains or blinds, it is important to consider the purpose of the room. Blinds are very effective at blocking out the light. Therefore, blinds tend to add practical value to bedrooms – especially if you have young children who tend to go to bed when it is still light. Rooms with blinds are believed to be far more conducive to sound sleep.
Another factor to consider is the amount of space you have. Full length, bulky curtains that reach the floor often create the illusion of there being less space. Whereas most variety of blinds will sit nicely within the window frame, looking neat and promoting space within a room.
Blinds are believed to be a lot more pet friendly. Many pet owners will know that if you have dogs or cats you can expect them to be all over your curtains. Blinds remove the problem altogether.
