6 Benefits Of Window Blinds For Your Home

If you are looking for new curtains for your home, why don't you consider window blinds instead?

Window blinds have a number of advantages and are a modern alternative to curtains. Here are 6 advantages of window blinds.

1. Available in a wide range of designs 

Gone are the days when window blinds were dull, boring and beige. Today window blinds are available in a number of designs from companies such as First BlindsMaterial blinds can be printed with most patterns, whilst you can get blinds in every colour under the sun. 

2. Available in a wide range of materials

The main types are Roller Blinds that roll up and down, Roman Blinds are fabric-based pleated blinds, Venetian Blinds that are slatted and Vertical Blinds that are ideal for floor to ceiling. Roller Blinds and Roman Blinds can be made from a stiff material, whilst Venetian blinds and Vertical Blinds are made from wood, metal, plastic or bamboo. 

The blinds can also be shaped to fit your window.   If you are looking for a moisture-resistant window covering for a bathroom or kitchen blinds are an excellent choice too. 

3. Can insulate your home

When you consider over 50% of the heat is a house is lost through the windows then energy-saving blinds make good money saving sense, as well as helping the environment. Duette are energy saving blinds with a honeycomb structure that traps air inside and are definitely worth considering if you want to save energy and money. 

4. Control light and privacy

Window blinds can be very good at controlling the light in a room. They fit close to a window and some can almost totally block the light making them a very option to cover a bedroom window for light sleepers, shift workers and babies.  You can get opaque blinds that let light in whilst controlling privacy, or fit blinds half way down a window for an alternative but still private look.

5. Are easy to clean

Most blinds just need a quick wipe with a damp cloth or a blind cleaner, which is much easier to do that wash curtains. This is especially good for those households that have people with allergies to dust mites and as they are easier to clean and more hygienic than curtains.

6. Available in a range of prices

Window blinds are available in a range of prices to suit everyone and every need and can be a cost-effective alternative to curtains.
