Welcome to this episode, today we’re looking at how to “Let your window blinds flow with the decor“
Many may think that if you choose blinds for window treatment there is not much else to do with decorating. This is not true because the windows are a big part of any room and the window treatments need to flow with the decor. Instead of just assuming that the windows need no more attention, think about what you can do to transform a room with the addition of blinds with these design tips:
For the bedroom, you may want to consider complete blockout blinds, to block all light from coming in. You want the ease of being able to sleep in without harsh sunlight interrupting your slumber. You may work evenings or nights and have a greater need for a dark bedroom during the day. Whatever the case, you should have the option to have room darkening blinds over bedroom windows. Bedrooms deserve more privacy than any other room in the home, so you want blinds that offers a way to completely cover the window and not allow people to see within no matter if it is day or night.
If you have any room within the home (or office) that faces the direct sunlight, that window will receive the brunt of suns heat. Anyone with windows facing the suns directions can tell you how much the sun heats the room in the summer. Quality blinds offer a means to both block the outside and block the sunlight from entering the room. There is a huge difference in the air temperature if the windows facing the sun are covered well while the sunlight bears down on the windows. The results of having the blinds can be seen in the energy bills. Blinds block and blinds insulate.
Not Just for Windows
That is probably something you have never heard before – that blinds can be used for other areas of the home and not just windows. If you have a large room that you’d like to partition off try installing blinds along the ceiling to give you an instant wall. The glory of having this is the ability to open the room when needed, or letting down the blinds for an instant new room for ultra privacy. Transform a covered deck by adding blinds as walls for the times when you want to breathe the fresh air but desire the privacy.
Decorating with Blinds
Blinds come in a variety of colours, textures, and even fabrics. You can create window treatments that blend in matching the colour scheme. You can use the windows to make a design statement, such as putting up black blinds in a mostly white room, or vice versa, white blinds in a mostly black room. Allow the window to give a pop of fun colour. Let the windows add definition and contrast by choosing colours and fabrics that will complete the decor in the room.
