You have probably heard the old saying “windows are the eyes of the house”. This can’t be more true. Every day through the windows you get to see a piece of the beautiful world outside your home. Furthermore, they allow you to bring precious natural light inside your home. Sometimes, on the other hand, you don’t want too much light and heat entering your home and just as windows give you a view of the outside world, they allow people on the outside to have a look at what’s going on in your home. This is why blinds are an essential part of your home design. They enable you to regulate the amount of light and heat you let in your house and protect your room and furniture from harsh rays. What is even more important they assure the privacy and security of your home.
Blinds have a have a great impact on the interior design of your house as well. Nowadays there is a huge selection of window treatments on the market, varying both in style and materials. But let’s take a closer look at one of my personal favorite-vertical blind. Though many people think that they are outdated, with all of the today’s new materials and new design solutions, vertical blind are one of the most elegant and practical solutions and they are making a comeback as more people rediscover their versatility and simplicity.
Modern vertical blinds have an affordable price tag and they are very practical, easy to install, and easy to maintain. They come in a wide range of colour and sizes, they have a simple child-safe wand control and are very easy to rotate or rapidly stack up allowing you to easily control light and privacy. Also, today’s vertical blinds have replaced the need for messy cords with sewn-in weights on each of the blades.
But vertical blinds are much more than just a practical solution for your windows. They have the ability to completely change the appearance of your home and taking it to the next level by selecting the right style that complements your interior décor the most, or just by simply adjusting the amount of light allowed to enter the room. You can further perfect the overall look of your home space by combining vertical blinds with different kinds of accessories such as cornices, valances or drapes.
So, whether you are redecorating or moving into a new home, have in mind that choosing the right window treatment can greatly benefit the style, functionality, and sense of privacy in your home.
