The points will help you chose the right blind and ensure all your requirements are fulfilled.
Why do you need the blind?
Blinds are incredibly versatile when required to be and are not just there to look good! Many will be designed for a set purpose, a few of which are mentioned below;
- Privacy – Is your window situated in a position that allows people to see the entire room from the outside? There are many blinds that will let natural light in but also offer enough privacy from the outside world without darkening the room.
- UV protection – UV rays can be particularly detrimental to furniture, furnishings and other household additions. Materials can be left warped and mis-coloured which in time can result in a costly restoration. There are a number of blinds that will combat this problem.
- Bespoke setting – There are some windows that may have a larger / smaller size and / or a unique shape which requires a tailor made window blind or curtain. This is typically more expensive when it comes to curtains and will often take longer to create. Blinds can be engineered to fit any window within minutes resulting in a much more efficient outcome!
