How to choose window blinds for your home
Mar 8 2011
Window blinds are some of the most versatile window treatments for homes and businesses, but some require special preparations to make sure they fit correctly. In addition, picking the right material for your space is essential to ensure their long-lasting durability and aesthetic style, according to ShropshireStar.com.
Window blinds could be the perfect choice for a long-lasting and functional window treatment.
When preparing for your new window blinds, the correct measurements will save you trouble down the road and will help your energy-efficiency. Use a high-quality tape measure instead of fabric, which will stretch and give inaccurate measurements. When assessing your space, leave a small amount of space between the frame and the window so it is not completely snug.
Be sure to take into account protruding handles and latches on your windows, as these could affect the fit of your window treatments. Your space should also be considered since window blinds that go in a kitchen or bathroom should be more moist-resistant.
If you're looking for the perfect warm accent to your living space, consider wood blinds in your home. Their timeless style will spruce up any room and will endure many years of use.
