Choosing the right blinds for a room can really bring a room together, but it can also be a very difficult task. At Sheila’s Drapery in Calgary, we can help you pick the right style. Blinds are made from either slats or vanes, manually pulled with a cord, wand, or a remote control. They provide a wonderful amount of adjustability, from privacy when closed to letting the light fully through when open, and can add a bit of flair to the window treatment. When choosing blinds, there are several different considerations, such as:
The first step in selecting the right set of blinds is picking the slats. Width is the foremost consideration in this decision, from ½ inch, 1 inch, and 2 inch choices. ½ inch can give your home a more contemporary feel, while 2 inch is much more reminiscent of older-style Venetian blinds. 1 inch is a compromise between the two, and is the least expensive.
You also need to think about colour. Matching a room can be great if you leave the colour scheme of the room as it is, but if you ever want to change it, going with a more neutral shade would be a better idea. Wood or faux-wood blinds are options that can lend your room a more rustic and organic feel. Faux-wood is less expensive than real wood and is less affected by moisture.
Different blinds suit different rooms in your house. Bedrooms might use horizontal blinds, whereas kitchens or living rooms might use vertical blinds. In the end, there are so many possibilities.
