Are you thinking forward to the spring cleaning that is not far away now that we are nearing the end of winter? If you have been looking around and feeling that things are a little dreary and could use a bit of dressing up start planning now for a brilliant beginning to spring. After all, you know the saying that a change is as good as a holiday does have a lot of truth to it. People often become bored with the same surroundings year after year, and a simple change can lift spirits amazingly. Try changing your colour scheme and perhaps some new window treatments for a startling transformation.
There are so many different choices available for raising our decor to a higher level, from floor coverings, furnishings, new kitchens and more. The larger items can cost a bit more but they are worth it if you plan carefully and co-ordinate tastefully. As for window treatments, there are more than enough styles to fit into any decorating scheme. Choose between drapes, vertical drapes, roller blinds in different styles and textures, and venetian blinds as well. Wooden blinds have joined the ranks of the venetian range, as well as polystyrene and aluminium being readily available, plus a new composite type that looks like timber.
While all venetians have their individual merits, the timber styles have a few other benefits that make them a worthwhile choice. Unlike other styles they are not likely to crease when bent by little hands pulling on them, resisting efforts to straighten them out and therefore making a replacement slat necessary. Western red cedar venetian blinds are strong and don’t bend, are not easily damaged, and give an elegant touch to a room. They also have the charming feeling of warmth that seems to be exclusive to all timber products.
Timber venetian blinds can be ordered in different finishes, as in stained, oiled or painted. They are wonderful for insulating the home, for both summer and winter, and the wider slats make it easy to control light and privacy while allowing the free flow of air, The synthetic wooden look alike style is also strong and durable and has a higher level of insulation than the other blinds. If you have access to a computer, go online and check out some of the websites that sell window treatments. You not only can see examples of the product, but make enquiries and order online as well. Try them and put a new zing into your springtime.
