Don’t decorate blindly – here’s each style of blind explained
As a window treatment, blinds are a modern, practical choice. Drapery and traditional curtains are beautiful but they can also be costly – not least because you also need netting – but also because you need to maintain them. It is far easier to clean any kind of blind than it is to take off and wash a net and curtain that has gathered dust, or one the dog has lifted his leg against.
