When decorating a home, important decisions have to be made curtains or blinds! If you decide to purchase blinds, the next decision is the type of blind that gives the best enhancement to your home or office. Blinds are made in various materials, but if you want to introduce warmth into your rooms, perhaps wooden blinds might be the best option. These come in many colours. In fact, you could be spoilt for choice. Let’s look at some of the advantages of wooden blinds.
Wooden blinds can be installed in any room. Always check with a reputable blind supplier. If humidity is not a problem, the blinds will give you many years of pleasure. How long do blinds last? If they are kept clean and not treated roughly, the slats will last much longer than you expect. Remember also that when blinds are made of natural wood, they will last much longer than imitation wood blinds.
If you are interested in low maintenance, genuine wooden blinds are ideal. A light dusting with a feather duster once a week will remove any surplus dust. Cleaning with a damp soft cloth or sponge every so often will remove any stains or dirt that had not been picked up when dusting.
Which wooden blind for my needs?
Selecting ideal blinds all depends on where you want to place them. In this modern age, most offices have blinds, which are both practical and decorative. There is a reason why blinds are put in shops and offices. They blend in much better with today’s modern desks and computers and they can be operated to either block the harsh sunlight or let in the sun’s gentle rays. They also help to keep rooms cool during summer months. Home blinds are also an ideal choice for protecting soft furnishings and a boon when computers and similar types of technological appliances are installed next to windows.
Types of blinds
A popular type of wooden blind is the Western Red Cedar, which is a fine example of a state of the art wood. However, when shopping online, select a company that gives advice regarding the best type of blind for your needs. For example, Venetian blinds might be the best option if you want to easily regulate the direction of the slats. On the other hand, vertical blinds make cleaning a breeze as they tend to not collect large quantities of dust.
Whether you choose Venetian or vertical blinds they are very easy to keep in good condition and they should last for several years. The blinds are easy to open and close and they don’t fade in the same way as curtains. Whatever your choice, your blinds will last a lifetime if treated with respect and if they are given regular, gentle cleaning.
