If you’ve been looking around your home recently and thinking it could do with a little brightening up, a great place to start is with the windows.
Thick curtains are great for keeping the heat in and do look nice and cosy in the winter time, but they can make the room seem a lot smaller, particularly if they’re made from heavyweight material. If you’re trying to achieve a brighter, more spacious feel, blinds are perfect and with so many styles and colours available they work well with pretty much every style of decor.
If you’ve got large bay windows in your living room or perhaps a patio door leading out to the garden then vertical blinds could work really well. They give you plenty of privacy if you need it and also let in plenty of light when tilted to an angle. The overall look is simple and elegant and great for a modern home or office. Take a look at a range of vertical blinds for examples of the colours and materials you can choose from. There is a style to suit everything from the modern minimalist apartment with a monochrome colour scheme to something a bit more rustic with lots of patterns and bright colours.
Vertical blinds are a fantastic way to create a truly personalised look to your room. You can buy individual coloured slats for vertical blinds, meaning you can colour coordinate and personalise your window covering to suit your tastes – after all, your home should really reflect your individual style, and what better way to do this than with customised window coverings? Try mixing colours of the same palette together for a well-blended style or if you really want to make a style statement, try inserting bright slats to mix things up – this would make the perfect look for a child’s bedroom as it adds a fun twist to an interior style.
You can also use vertical blinds as room dividers too (who’d have thought it?), so if you’re looking for a quirky way to split up your room space, think vertical!
