Tips in Choosing Blinds for your Home

By Jenevive Williams Subscribe to RSS | January 20th 2012 | Views:

When it comes to architecture or home design, the focal points vary. Some designers use art as a room's main attraction. Others opt for furniture while some turn to home features like doors, ceilings, and windows.

Aside from allowing natural light to come in and enabling homeowners to view the outdoors, windows may also be the primary or secondary features that beautify a room. If that is the purpose of your windows, then you may want to put more thought into choosing blinds to accentuate your windows. To help you select the right blinds for your home, read on and learn tips from The Blind Factory, the leading producer of ready-made blinds in Melbourne.

Roller Blinds – Because they are easy to clean and use, roller blinds are the most popular on the market. Their contemporary look complements any décor. This kind of blinds is perfect for the living room, bedroom, and work/office room. It can be motorised in order to easily see that scenic view outside your home or to conveniently shield you from intense sunlight. With roller blinds, you can have the beauty of your blinds on full display for all to see or rolled away neatly to almost nothing. It could also be used as your projector screen for your movie night in the living room or in the bedroom and for your work meetings at home. Roller blinds from The Blind Factory comes in different colours, textures, and designer fabrics in order to help you achieve the perfect look.

Roman Blinds – Also known as Roman shades or fabric shades, Roman blinds fold into pleats when raised. They are designed with excess fabric so that they overlap when closed. The hobbled design has a softened pleated look and adds to the insulating properties of the blinds when closed. This kind of blinds is ideal for your unusually sized or shaped windows. They can be customised to perfectly fit your windows. The Blind Factory's Roman blinds are available in screen, patterned, translucent, and 100% block-out fabrics that come in a wide array of colours and textures that would help you produce the exact decorative and light filtering effect you want.

Plantation Shutters – Interior blinds traditionally made from broad slats of wood mounted in a solid frame, Plantation Shutters are designed that way to allow free flow of air through a structure in a warm climate, while also creating shade to keep the interior of the structure cool. They are also ideal for unusually sized or shaped windows because they come in different shapes and sizes to conform with those type of windows. Because of their design, they are also ideal for places in the house that require privacy like bathrooms, dressing rooms, or walk-in closets. Most of the time, plantation shutters are hinged so that they can be pulled all the way open for additional ventilation. Some come in sets of hinged panels, which are folded across the window, allowing people to fold a part or all of the shutter back, depending on their needs.
