Finding the right curtains for your home can be a bit of a challenge. There are a wealth of options; vertical blinds, roman blinds, pleated blinds, venetian blinds, roller blinds and of course, ordinary curtains in fabric. Which option(s) will you choose?
Classic curtains in fabric
Traditional curtains in fabric help to set the mood in a room and if you prefer good old-fashioned curtains, you are not alone. Curtains can be combined in many ways. For example, you can combine thin curtains that let in light, with thick curtains or blackout blinds for the night.
Vertical blinds are a solution that is becoming more popular. They are ideal for large windows that go all the way down to the floor. In addition, the shield is flexible because the slats can be set at different angles, which allow for greater or lesser amounts of light to penetrate. Vertical blinds are available in many standard sizes and you can shorten both the length and width of your vertical blinds. However, this can be a time-consuming process. When you buy vertical blinds bracket for mounting is included.
Roller blinds and roman blinds
Roller blinds and roman blinds are another popular curtain solution. Both types of these blinds are practical and affordable. Roller blinds are most often used in bedrooms as they are available as blackout curtains. Roman blinds cannot be shortened in either length or width, while roller blinds can be adjusted in width but not length. Therefore, make sure that they suit your windows.
Venetian blinds are useful for smaller windows and the slats can be tilted so that the amount of light can be adjusted. With a blind cutter you can easily shorten aluminum blinds in both length and width. Setting up the blinds can be done by using the brackets that are included.
Pleated blinds are timeless and practical. They fit both regular windows and windows that go all the way to the floor. Pleated blinds can also do something other curtains can’t. Most pleated blinds comes with an up and down solution, where you can draw the curtains from top to bottom, bottom to top or place the blinds in the middle of the window. It makes them optimal for sun protection while still allowing for natural light to flow in. It also makes them useful if you just want to screen from prying eyes. Pleated blinds can be shortened in width.
