Everyone has a different personal style. From the way you dress to the music you listen to, you define your personality through your choice of clothing, jewellery, shoes, accessories and more. It’s these unique differences that can make your vibe shine through. Also, your home is no different. Your place of residence needs to reflect your style. There are heaps of ways to achieve this, from your choice of artwork through to your furniture and flooring. However, one aspect of your home’s aesthetic that you shouldn’t neglect is your window dressings! A good pair of blinds, curtains or drapes can make a room dazzle and sparkle. So let’s unpack the blind breakdown and learn how to choose the right blinds for your home.
How to Pick the Right Blinds for your Living Room
When it comes to picking blinds in Sydney for your living space, you’re spoiled for choice. Vertical blinds are a great choice, offering the utmost in privacy. They also provide a significant amount of control, allowing an ample amount of sunlight and air in without compromising the intimacy of your home. You can choose between a wide range of colours, allowing you to either contrast with the existing palette of your living room or matching it entirely. Vertical blinds are best suited to large windows.
If you have smaller windows in your living space, then consider roman blinds. Looking smooth and sophisticated, roman blinds offer the feeling and vibe of fabric without being as bulky as full curtains. You can even couple them with a light pair of curtains if you feel like it.
Kitchen and Dining
Apart from your living room, your kitchen is a room that sees a lot of use and traffic, so it pays to get the choice of window dressings right. Venetians, either real timber or timber look, are a perfect choice here. We’d tend towards recommending timber look as these are moisture resistant and if your window is above your kitchen sink, there’s a chance they’ll get exposed to moisture. Venetians are also affordable and suit those working with a budget.
Moving onto the dining room! Light control is of the essence here. You want to be able to see during the day, without getting blinded by harsh sunlight. Translucent roller blinds will let in ample light without dazzling you, and Venetians are another option – you can partially open them to let in a bit of sun.
What About the Bathroom?
Like your kitchen, you may want to opt for faux-wood blinds for your bathroom. The bathroom is the dampest room in the house, and real timber is susceptible to rot. Alternatively, choose an easy to clean PVC roller blind, in soft or neutral tones. A pale white is one great choice, as is a smooth cream.
If you’re lucky enough to have a large window in your bathroom, then PVC vertical blinds are a stylish and elegant choice that will add a touch of luxury to your bathing space.
You also want to stay away from fabric window dressings in your bathroom, as these are an ideal environment for mould to grow!
Summing it Up
Your blinds are a reflection of your home’s style, so choose wisely. Opt for vertical blinds or roman blinds in your living room dependant on the size of your windows. Venetians are an excellent choice for the kitchen and dining or opt for translucent rollers for your dining space. Faux-wood and PVC is the way to go for the bathroom – choose between roller blinds or verticals if you have a large window.
