At some point, we all have that urge to transform our living space. To update it, to beautify it and to turn it into a space that is closely aligned to our evolving tastes and needs. As fun and exciting as it might sound, the unfortunate truth is that not many of us have the resources (or drive) available to completely overhaul our entire house in one go. But don’t let this discourage you from tackling those home improvements you have been yearning for. There are some smart and practical ways to breathe new life into your living space. Doing one thing as simple as getting new, stylish blinds for your windows can change the entire look and feel of your house.
Wait, what? Blinds? As a substitute for home improvements? Certainly! Once you realise what a huge difference it can make to a space, you’ll understand why this is no shortcut, but one of those home improvements that you’d wish you’ve done ages ago.
Here are just some of the top reasons why you should seriously consider blinds for those long-desired home improvements:
A design for every style
Whether you prefer a rustic country look, a modern sleek look, a stripped-down industrial look, or anything in between, there is a colour and design available that will perfectly match the style you are going for. With a variety of designs and colours available, blinds are anything but boring.
Improved lighting control
Lighting is one of the most important factors to consider when planning home improvements. Unlike curtains, blinds allow you to exactly control the amount of light you let into a room, directly affecting the atmosphere of the space.
Ideal for just about any shape and size window
Do you have many small windows? A large sliding door? An angled bay window? Chances are that you will be able to find a custom-made blind to fit your windows perfectly.
Gain more space
Because of the way they fit a window, blinds take up much less space than curtains and cover less space surrounding the window. This can help to make a room feel larger and more spacious.
Do you like a breeze or some natural light in your home, but don’t like prying eyes? With blinds, you can have it all the way you like it.
Made from sturdy materials, blinds generally have a very long lifespan when treated correctly. Also, they tend to show less deterioration and fading due to sun exposure, compared to curtains, ensuring that your space looks better for longer.
Easy to clean
Home improvements are not only about visual design but also about improving your quality of life. And let’s face it, life is way too short to spend your days cleaning. This is yet another major reason why blinds are so ideal. Not only do they look great, but they require very little maintenance. You simply need to take a dry cloth or duster and wipe it down to remove any dust or dirt.
