A home is much more than a house, and just like everything else, needs to be made beautiful. When it comes to renovating the home, window treatment should rate high on your to-do list. Curtains and blinds are spices that flavour up every available space while making it as inviting and comfortable as possible. The right choice of curtains or blinds or both can transform your home into a haven to look forward to after a long day. Let’s explore why curtains and blinds are important when renovating your home.
There isn’t a mandatory rule or guide that you must follow when choosing your window treatment. It’s all a matter of what you want. Blinds are cheap compared to curtains and are easy to clean. Curtains, on the other hand, are more stylish, classy and cosy.
Curtains and blinds help keep the outside world, outside. They can create a sort of escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Behind closed curtains, you can relax and regroup and take the needed rest to reboot or charge up, in a sense.
They protect your beautiful home from the elements, dust, draft, dirt, even rain and sunlight. Doesn’t it feel heavenly to be able to close your curtains or blinds against the glare of sunlight in order to get some sleep? Yes it does. By opening or closing them, you are able to filter the amount of light that comes into your home.
Form part of your interior Decor
Curtains and blinds come in different colours, design, style, thickness and so you can choose what type would complement your walls and other furniture in the home. Their colour can either match the walls or at least contrast well, each bringing out the best from the other.
Help express your personality
Making the right choice of window treatment can reflect the inner you and your artistic appreciation. Bright colours, nude, matte or dark tones, to each his own. You don’t have to pick curtains because someone else picked those same ones.
Curtains and blinds can define a room to a visitor without you having to say a word. Muted tones for a library. Bright, fun colours for a sitting room. Flowery designs for the kitchen etc. Need we say more?
Here is a point to make us all smile. You don’t have to break your bank account in order to buy curtains and blinds. There are so many types and makes and designs to pick from. You can easily buy suitable ones that nicely fit into your budget and ultimately still give you the result you are looking for.
Year round or seasonal
Your window treatment can be used year round or depending on the season. It’s really all a matter of choice. So you aren’t restricted in your selection.
These are the reasons why it is important to have either or both of these two extremely useful items in the home? Remember, however, it is important to choose the right type, colour, thickness e.t.c. of curtains or blinds as making a bad or wrong choice can produce a really awful result. In other words, it is advisable to seek a second or third opinion sometimes or to consider your existing decor before going ahead to purchase them.
