With the helpful tips and advice found below, you’ll be able to get the most out of your blinds and shades. Remember to always seek professional assistance when looking to install new window treatments, whether for your home or business.
Don’t use the same blinds in every room
There is no reason to use the same color or kind of blinds in every room of your house. Each room is different and has its own characteristics. Therefore, it is better to choose your blinds accordingly. This will add a fresh and interesting twist to your home. Each room will look and feel differently and it will keep you far away from continuous monotony.
Cordless blinds are safer for your family
If you have small children or pets in your home you might want to consider getting cordless blinds. These blinds are childproof, as they do not have dangerous cords hanging around in which your child or pet can get caught. If you want to lift or lower the blinds all you have to do is pull on the bottom slat.
Consider lining your drapes and curtains
It’s important for you to realize that not all drapes are lined. Why should you consider lining them? First of all, this will add more weight and therefore a better structure to the natural fall of the curtain. Second, the lining will keep the fabric from fading due to the sun and it will also offer better protection for your furniture. Lastly, lined drapes will act as good insulator for your home and will keep cold air out in the winter and prevent hot air from entering in the summer.
