With so different types of window blind to choose from, where you are even supposed to start looking. Should you go for printed roller blinds; Venetian blinds; wooden blinds, or should you rather go for customised blinds that can be tailored to meet your exact needs? All types of window blinds have their own advantages and disadvantages, and that is even before we start looking at the difference in prices. Nonetheless, if you are the sort of person who likes to do things differently, then customised blinds are definitely an option worth considering.
Printed roller blinds– A great choice for everyone
The nicest thing of all about custom printed blinds is the fact that they are a superb choice for anyone because they allow you to add a touch of “individuality” to any room in your home. For example, if you have a young daughter, you could choose window blinds that have a print of a ballerina on them. On the other hand, if you are decorating a boy’s room, you could choose customised blinds that have a football theme. Customised blinds allow you to ensure that every room in your home has window blinds that perfectly match the actual purpose of each room. For instance, you might want to hang light-coloured printed roller blinds in your kitchen in order to brighten up the area, whereas in your bathroom you could opt for a darker shade or a more tranquil print in order to create a somewhat more relaxing atmosphere.
Choosing printed roller blinds for kitchens and bathrooms
In many kitchens, there is often a window by the kitchen sink. If you have regular curtains covering such windows, then you probably already know just how quickly mildew can start forming on them. It is almost impossible not to splash water on the curtains, and with kitchens being relatively warm places, mould and mildew is a common problem. With roller window blinds, this problem can be totally eliminated, proving you choose blinds which are made from a suitable material such as PVC for example or fabric blinds with a protective coating. PVC blinds can be wiped clean very easily using only a damp cloth and some mild detergent, which means you will never have to worry about mildew again.
When you buy blinds for your bathroom, you should also always try to opt for blinds that are made from a durable material, and a material which is easy to clean to prevent mildew growing. With so many types and styles available, it can be a pain trying to choose the right blinds for your home, but you can save yourself quite a bit of hassle simply by opting for printed roller blinds or customised blinds to give you a window dressing that is practical, functional and visually appealing.
Matching your personality
Choose prints to suit your individuality, colour scheme and decorating motif. Use printed roller blinds on their own or team them up with curtains in the living room and bedroom. Opt for blackout printed blinds in bedrooms to help prevent unwanted light from entering the room, use thermal printed blinds to help reduce heat loss in the colder months. Give each type of printed blind full consideration and make your selection according to your individual needs.
