The choice between blinds and curtains can often seem to come down to a matter of personal taste. Blinds and curtains can really make a big difference to a room and its functionality, so make sure you make the right choice.
When choosing blinds, there are many options such as: fabric roller blinds, inverted roller blinds, roman blinds, other available options are: wooden or plastic Venetian blinds and mini blinds or vertical blinds with metallic, wooden or rigid fabric slats.
The biggest advantage that blinds have over curtains is that they are usually less expensive and easier to install. They also use less fabric for the softer blinds and this will complement the room much better.
Blinds add more elegance to a room and appear sharper and reveal much more restrained than curtains and work great in a modern room. They can also be fixed in two different ways, either inside the window sills or outside the frame.
They can also be combined with curtains, especially in areas like bay windows or French windows or just when the curtains are too fiddly and you don't want to remove and replace them. Then the best option is to combine the blinds you choose with the existing curtains.
Although these factors should be taken into account when choosing whether you prefer blinds or curtains. Some additional things to consider when making your choice are:
3. Room environment
4. Window area
