Tips for Choosing Blinds
Take a good look at the room you will be adding blinds to in your home. Think about how you want to accent the room, and recognize that window treatments can make a big impact on the overall appearance. If you want a room to look larger and give it more height, consider choosing vertical blinds. To add an artistic focal point, the best choice is often faux wood blinds as they set your room apart from the others in the home.
Make sure to keep safety a priority. If you have young children or pets in your home, you will want to avoid blinds with long dangling cords, ropes and ties. These can pose a choking hazard and a strangulation hazard. Our motorized window treatments provide plenty of cordless options that are also fashionable and stylish. You won’t have to give up the look you want simply because safety is at the forefront of your mind.
Consider how dark you want the room to be when the blinds are shut. For instance, if you are adding treatments to a living room you likely don’t need it to be completely dark when you shut your blinds. The best choice might be blinds with larger slats. However, if you are purchasing blinds for windows in a child’s bedroom, you likely will need darkness in the room during nap time. Micro mini blinds would be the best choice in this particular situation.
Don’t forget to think about cleaning your new blinds. Blinds have been known to collect dust, and if you don’t have the time to do routine maintenance on your blinds, you will want to choose a set that will collect less. For instance, opt to have anti-static treatment applied to your blinds. This protects them and prevents the dust from forming.
Choosing window treatments for any room can be overwhelming, but the professionals at Blinds Express and More are here to help. Simply contact us and tell us about the room you will be working with at that time. We’d love to help you pick out the blinds that are perfect for you.
