The say love is blind – and when it comes to blinds in the kitchen, bedroom, living area or just about anywhere around the home, that’s a really good thing. As is the trend pretty much globally, the demand for blinds in Underberg has radically been on the upswing. As a window covering, regardless of the kind of blinds you go for, they offer both a functional and stylish solution. In decor terms, that is the highly prized hole-in-one.
Cleaning is a breeze
Compared to cleaning curtains, cleaning blinds is far less labour intensive and quick. We’d be happy to advise you on fabric selection because other than the feel you want it to lend to the room its in, and the amount of light you want filtering through, there are specific considerations for other rooms as well. In the bathroom, for example, you may want a high level of privacy but also the knowledge that your choice is moisture-resistant. In the kitchen, you may want something that is both moisture, spill and oil-splatter resistant and the good news is, all of these options are available.
They are highly functional
Let’s face it, with a kitchen you have pretty much two options: open and closed. Blinds afford you a degree of shade, privacy, light and functional flexibility not afforded by curtains. It’s a good bet that whatever blinds in Underberg you’re trying to source, we either have them or we can source them.
Your curtain choice is probably going to come down to two sides of a coin always: ordinary or dramatic; plain or embellished. Rarely though are they capable of being the actual focal point in the room, whereas this can easily apply to a blind, just by choosing a standout motif on your fabric! The point is, a blind’s level of bespokeness is much higher than that of a curtain. How much you want it to blend into the room or be the focal feature and how much it reflects your taste – whether traditional, wacky, modern, sleek, cottage island-style or anything else – is up to you. Would an island-inspired palm-frond pattern on a curtain look out of place? Yes, probably, especially if it jarred with the room setting or the drapery itself is too heavy. Would it look out of place on a set of blinds? Far less likely, given how it’s taken for granted that blinds are tapestries too.
Spoilt for choice
Barring the odd embellishment such as tie-back sides and the various kinds of top treatment available, a curtain is a curtain is a curtain, pretty much. But the individual styles, character and application of blind mean that your choice of blinds is the first big step. When you come in for a consult asking us about blinds in Underberg, we’ll ask you firstly what kind of blind you’d like. No one is really going to ask you what kind of curtain you’d like, because the differential just isn’t that big.
The ability to impact perceived dimension and ambience
Yes, a bad curtain can spoil a room and luxurious drapery can lend it finesse. But blinds go beyond this. Depending on the style and measurements you choose they can also make a room appear more spacious, or light-infused or both.
Once you see what have have on offer as far as blinds in Underberg go, you are sure not to think of them as mere window coverings again. Once you begin to see them as an expression of how your style in a room can be imposed or enhanced, they’ll take on different decor dimensions that are hard to ignore.
