So today we’ll be going over how blinds can be used to bring new life to different rooms in your house this year.
Living Room (Get Natural Light Without Blinding Yourself)
Your living room is probably one of the most used rooms in your home, where your family gather to relax, chat and watch television so you’ll spend a lot of time in this room. Most people have curtains in their living room rather than blinds. But having curtains in a living room can be a bit of a negative, we’ve all experienced getting sun in our eyes or having to squint at the TV because the sun is beaming on the screen, so you close your curtains, but with curtains, closing them takes away all the sun light.
This is where blinds come into their own, you can easily control the amount of light coming into a room with vertical or venetian blinds, rotating them to let in some light without running the risk of having the sun block your view.
Bed Room (Get Better Sleep)
Lots of people have issues sleeping in rooms with light leakage, this occurs from rooms without window dressing and curtains that have a gap between the wall allowing light to seep through. Because of this, fitted blackout blinds can increase the quality of your sleep by blocking all light from coming into your room giving you a better nights sleep.
Having a darker room has been scientifically linked to better quality sleep as well as a whole host of other health benefits, so having blackout blinds can help improve your physical and mental health.
Kitchen (Easy To Clean Window Furnishing)
The kitchen can be a messy place, spilt drinks, dropped food and grease from frying pans, etc. So when it comes to anything in a kitchen it needs to be durable and easy to clean. This is where blinds come into play, lots of companies make purpose made blinds for the kitchen.
These kitchen specific blinds are usually made from a durable and easy to clean fabric, making them far superior to curtains as you can simply wipe the blind whilst it’s still up, whereas to clean a curtain that is stained with food would be quite an arduous task.
Bathroom (Extra Privacy)
Most people have the windows in their bathroom made with frosted glass for privacy and as such don’t usually come with blinds, however even though frosted glass obscures you, you’re still visible. So for those looking to up their privacy you can fully obscure yourself from passers by.
Make sure that you buy bathroom blinds however, some material will be damaged by the steam, so a PVC roller blind that is waterproof is the best way to go.
