No matter if you are moving into a new home or you just want to redecorate, choosing the window blinds models and colors can be challenging, especially because there are a lot of options out there.
You can think about the rooms in which you will install the window treatments and how much light control you want to have. Some of the best window treatment options for light control are roller blinds, but other options like roman blinds and vertical blinds have their own advantages.
When it comes to choosing the color for your window treatment, it can be a lot like when you buy new clothes.
This means that if you want something that is full of color and that seems to be the trend of the moment, you only do it because you know that, when the model with not be as popular as it is right now, you will buy something different. In other words, if you think you will change your window treatment again in a year or two, choose whatever you like.
But, if you want something for long term, choose something simpler and neutral colors, something…timeless in terms of design.
Window blinds can blend into the decor if you choose the same color as the paint from the walls. A specific type of blinds that can help you or your baby to have a better sleep are blackout blinds. These ones use dense fabrics that completely block the light when they are closed. Some blinds are somewhat transparent and their role is to provide the right ambiance in the room, by creating a diffuse light.
Window blinds can provide more intimacy to those who use them, because they prevent people who are walking on the street to see what you are doing in your home.
Roller blinds are extremely practical in this sense. If you have roller blinds on your windows, whenever you need privacy, you just close the blinds and everything is perfect. Most people know roller blinds that have a standard roll and this means that the fabric of the blinds rolls back and very close to the window.
This option is the one that blocks the most light. On the other hand, there is the reverse roll, case in which the fabric is on the front of the roller.
