Blinds Vs Curtains

If you’re looking to brighten up dull windows or feel like changing your décor, then you need to decide on the right window dressing for each room of your home. There are benefits and drawbacks to different window coverings, so you must choose carefully to ensure you get exactly what you’re seeking in terms of practicality and style. Here we look at the advantages of installing blinds as opposed to curtains:

 Light Control

The amount of light you want to enter a room can be controlled by simply or opening or closing either blinds or curtains. However, with a pair of curtains you can only do one or the other. Blinds offer greater flexibility to angle the light, so you can still choose to have a little coming in and not block out the light altogether. Blinds can be adjusted both vertically or horizontally depending on the style you choose. Curtains just don’t offer this level of flexibility.

Privacy

This can be offered by both blinds and curtains, the ability to block the view between your home’s interior and any passers-by or neighbours. However, with curtains you have to also block out light to achieve this privacy which is something you might not always want to do. Blinds can be tilted so that you can still let light in and restrict any visibility from the outside.

Materials

Curtains come in a huge variety of colour and pattern but perhaps not so much choice over the material they are made from. By choosing blinds for your home, not only can you choose the pattern and colour but also the material. A whole range of materials can be used to add interest and dynamics to your décor, such as natural wood or plastic. The perfect choice for bathrooms are made from more hygienic waterproof materials.

Maintenance

Not many of us can find the time to wash and iron all the curtains in our home or having to take them to be dry cleaned. Blinds offer far less maintenance, most just need the occasional wipe down. Instead of having to unhook curtains from the pole and having a bare window until they are dry, blinds can simply be dusted. This saves you time, money and effort with no loss of privacy.

Variety

Both window coverings are available in many colours and designs, but you should also consider the size of the room in which you want to hang either blinds or curtains. If you want to make a small space look bigger, blinds are both space-saving and expose more of the window, making the room look bigger. Curtains can take up space and appear heavy, making a space feel more enclosed.
