How to choose the best blinds for your home | Canberra time
When sunlight streams through your windows and wakes you up long before your alarm goes off or there’s no privacy with neighbors, we can feel frustrated with our homes. This is when you start wishing for new heavy duty window treatments.
Custom blinds will be of great help in these areas and will also transform the overall look of your home. Tired, old-fashioned windows will instantly become brighter, lighter and more elegant with a new set of blinds. New window treatments improve the aesthetics of your home.
Still, with so many options on the market, it can be difficult to decide which blinds are best for your home. Factors to consider are the primary purpose of the blinds, the color and style that matches your existing home, and the type of fabric that will best suit your lifestyle.
The first thing to keep in mind is that if you are looking for blinds that will fit your windows perfectly where no light or heat will escape through unsightly gaps, you need to choose professionals who will custom fit the blinds to you.

If you are looking for a practical and economical option that is easy to clean and use, vertical blinds are your best bet. They are the go-to option for sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, and they will suit almost any home decor as they are available in a huge range of colors and fabrics. Just keep in mind that vertical blinds won’t block out 100% light, so if that’s important in your space, opt for a sturdier option like Roman or roller blinds.
Perfect if you are looking for privacy or need to block out strong sunlight. Roller blinds are seamless and unobtrusive, so they will blend effortlessly into your home creating a stylish look that will also save you money on energy costs.
Worth the investment, plantation shutters are super luxurious, even opting for shutters only in the living room and dining room will dramatically increase the market value of your home. Their high quality finish and timeless charm will stand the test of time and are very easy to clean.
All you need is a damp cloth. If styles change and you revamp your interior, your shutters will easily adapt to any decor. As a bonus, you’ll be able to keep your home cooler in the summer and cooler in the winter and significantly reduce rising energy costs.
Roman shades are an elegant and sophisticated way to make a statement with your windows. Depending on your style preferences, you can choose between traditional pleats with aluminum slats or more modern options that feature neat, minimal pleats. For those looking to add texture, softness and a sense of minimalism to their home, Roman shades are an ideal option.
