The right window treatment can transform an otherwise dull window into a thing of beauty. But when choosing window treatments for your home, it's helpful to start with the function or purpose of the room. After all, each room serves a different purpose.
While curtains might be suitable for some rooms, blinds are a better solution in others due to their unique characteristics. If you are trying to decide which rooms to put window blinds in, the following guide can help clear things up for you.
Blinds Are Ideal for Bathrooms
Because curtains are impractical in bathrooms, blinds are a much better option. You want your bathroom to be a bright and cheery place where you can relax in comfort. Blinds help you to let in as much sunlight as you wish and give you more control over light than curtains would.
Venetian or Roman blinds work well in bathrooms. But if you'd rather your blinds were less conspicuous or easier to open and close, roller blinds might be a better option for you.
Blinds Are Practical in Kitchens
Blinds are also a better solution for kitchens than curtains since curtains can get dirty when surrounded by food. And, if your kitchen looks out onto your attractive backyard, window blinds will give you more control over how much of your yard you can see as you wash your dishes or prepare dinner.
Roman blinds or roller blinds are a good option if you want to frame a view.
Blinds Are Useful in Home Offices
While you are hard at work in your home office, you need lots of light and most people prefer natural light. Blinds can help you keep your home office well lit while bestowing a touch of style to your working space. Traditionally, vertical blinds work well in offices, but if you'd prefer something that can also completely block out light, then roller blinds might be a better option.
Blinds Save Space in Small Rooms
Blinds are also practical to use in rooms that have limited space. While curtains take up a lot of space, blinds usually take up very little space. This means that you can help make the most of the space in smaller rooms by installing blinds instead of curtains.
If you are trying to decide which rooms to put blinds in, first consider the function of the room and use the aforementioned tips to help you.
