When you are decorating, or redecorating your home, the possibilities are endless! It may seem scary at first – what if you make a major decorating mistake and end up with a room where nothing matches and you end up with an unflattering space? What if you spend hours and hours of time and hundreds of dollars and absolutely hate what you’ve done and all of the choices you’ve made? You can take comfort in the fact that there is one selection you can make that you can’t go wrong with blinds!
There are many reasons that blinds are a great choice when you want to give your home an all-new look. For instance:
There is a wide selection of blinds to choose from. No matter what kind of look you’re going for, blinds can help you achieve it. Blinds have a timeless look, and you can choose from different types of blinds for different effects. Wood blinds give your room a classy, classic touch. Vertical blinds offer a contemporary look. Mini blinds are the perfect accent for that little window in the bathroom. And don’t forget that you can choose from a variety of sheens, colors, and wood types, in stained or painted, so you are sure to find just what you want.
Blinds can provide energy savings. We’re all looking for ways to save a few bucks nowadays, and searching for ways to keep our homes as comfortable as they can be. Blinds are a wonderful way to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Interior blinds are great for the summer heat, since you can adjust the slats and control how much light gets into the room. When they are completely closed, they can reduce heat-gain by 45%. Exterior blinds, which are mounted above the window, can provide shade if closed completely. You can control your home’s temperature by adjusting how much air and daylight you would like by raising or lowering the blinds.
Blinds are easy to install. You may think that installing blinds sounds like a hassle, and maybe you think it is beyond your expertise. But it’s not as hard as you may think, especially with an abundance of websites out there that can show you exactly what you need to do. There is no need to go out and buy any special hardware – the only thing you’ll need for installation is a screwdriver or drill.
Blinds are safe for kids. Maybe you are hesitating to get blinds because you have kids or grandkids and you’ve heard horror stories about tykes getting caught up in the blind cords – with disastrous results. Blind manufacturers are aware of these concerns, and now offer blinds with cords that are loose, not looped, or blinds that don’t use cords at all.
Ordering blinds is now easier than ever. You don’t even have to leave the house. Measure your windows. Check out a blinds website with a ton of great options. Wait a few days for your order to arrive. Unpack and install. It’s as easy as that!
Yes, when you are redecorating it can be a challenge because you have so many decisions to make. But which window covering you should get is an easy choice! The right blinds can give your room a whole new look. They help keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are easy to install, safe for kids, and easy to order. Buying blinds may be the easiest decorating choice you make!
