Alternatively, keep reading as we summarised in the below blinds buying guide some of the most important details to pay attention to when choosing blinds for your home.
Prices may vary depending on sizes, fabrics, designs and features. It is essential when looking for blinds that you set a budget or a maximum amount of money that you are willing to spend. If you do not have a budget in mind, ask your blinds expert to give you a price range for entry-level, mid-range and premium products. Ask also, per each price range, what are the benefits and the extra features. If you are not fussy about design and additional features, you can usually keep your budget low by choosing a functional product. Prices may increase the more you are interested in the style and decorative aspects of your project. Automation will increase the price, but also the level of comfort and convenience.
When choosing blinds for a bedroom or bathroom, usually it is important to consider privacy as a critical aspect. Depending on where your home is located, if it faces the road with high pedestrian traffic, also a kitchen and living room requires a higher level of privacy. Darker colours and ticker fabric are usually preferred in these cases.
When choosing blinds, remember to think about the safety of your children or if you have any pets. A blinds expert can 100% suggest you the best solution for your space.
When choosing blinds, remember to ask how to clean them. Are any specific cleaning products to be used? Can they be vacuum cleaned? Are they easy to be disassembled for cleaning purposes? Blinds often collect dust and dirt. This is why it is very important to consider this, especially if any of you your family member has any allergies.
Some areas of your home need to have blinds that make the room brighter. Some other areas require the sunlight to be blocked. Consider if your window receives direct light and if it faces North, South, East or West.
Everyone has a preferred style (casual or formal, comfy or elegant, classic or modern, basic or stylish). Blinds shapes, patterns and colours differently express a persons style and creativity. Usually, the style of the blind goes together with the furniture style. The decorating style also goes along with the main purpose of blinds: privacy, brightness, sunlight protection. Bold colours usually make looking at a room more fun, while lighter or neutral colours make the room more relaxing.
