Installing window blinds is the most effective way to instantly change the appearance of your house. Choosing from a wide variety can be a bit confusing because the preferences vary from person to person. But the question arises that why you should choose blinds over curtains?
Whether you want to install blinds for aesthetic or practical reasons, here are some benefits of installing blinds in your house that will reduce your confusion:
Window blinds provide more control over the light entering the room as you can cover the whole window or just a part of it according to your requirement.
Blinds are more effective than curtains in this area since they come in different sizes of slats and they can be opened, closed or tilted in any way you want.
Blinds are ideal for a room where a minimum amount of light is required, such as theatres or your bedroom where you do not want any light to wake you up in the morning.
If you are experiencing summers or if you live in an area where the temperature remains above 35 degrees, you must prefer using window blinds to protect yourself by blocking the harmful UV rays entering your house causing a heating effect.
I am sure you do not want strangers or neighbours to peek into your house, especially bathrooms or bedrooms. Blinds with liners can serve the purpose. They allow you to be safe from prying eyes. Blinds have an advantage over other shades; you can configure the slats in a way that you can see out, but no one can see in.
Their durability is far better as compared to other window coverings; such as faux and aluminium blinds. Faux woods have various features that include robustness, firmness and sturdiness, which makes it ideal for creating faux wooden blinds. Aluminium blinds are ideal for long term use.
Blinds provide proper insulation and block air leakages whether you are staying at a cold or hot place whereas curtains can allow the diffusion of air and light. Blinds make your home energy efficient.
