How to choose the right blind for your home

December 15, 2018





An excellent choice of blinds can greatly enhance a window, improve the use of light and of course bring style to any room.

As always , when choosing any decorative element or facing an interior design project, it is essential to take into account some fundamental aspects such as the light and colour of the room, the size, the type of use it is given, the style of the rest of the elements, etc.


Thus, depending on the characteristics of each space, it will be convenient for you to choose one type of fabric, color and the way it is hung. Here are some tips and things to keep in mind when choosing the right blinds for each space and window.


Blinds depending on the light


For rather dark spaces, we recommend looking for a lightweight fabric such as thinner fabric blinds or fine light-colored cotton to let in light.


If the room is dimly lit, it will probably be a space that you want to have often exposed, so hang the blind up with a system that is easy to open and close.


On the other hand, if it is a very bright room, you should have the possibility to darken it a little, so it is advisable to use either dense fabric blinds or a double system which consists of a few thin blinds on one side but has superimposed other blind with less translucent fabric to be able to put a stop to the light if the circumstances require it.


Choose blinds according to window type


Windows, for better or worse, have their style. If you are lucky enough to have a beautiful or unique window because of its shape, size, material or age, do not hesitate to take advantage of it.


To realise the potential, the first step is to choose a hanging system that can leave the entire window visible, such as a bar that is wider than the window opening, so that when the window is opened, the window architecture can be enjoyed.


On the other hand, if your windows are not beautiful or are very dull, we recommend that you choose some blinds that neither enhance nor give prominence to the window. Roller Blinds can be a good option for this: They can be made to measure and cover even the top of the window.


Choose blinds according to the decorative style


The mixtures of decorative styles give beautiful results in interior design. However, as it is not easy to make this type of combination without the help of a professional, we will help you to understand the general sensations evoked by the different types of blinds.


These are just a few strokes to keep in mind, but every house and every person is a unique. If you would like our experts to help you choose the type of blinds that will suit you best in your home space, do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
