5 Things to Consider when Choosing New Window Blinds


Windows can be a major focal point in nearly any room so it is important they are properly dressed. There are nearly unlimited styles of window treatments such as blinds and drapes, so it can be a daunting task finding the perfect look for your home. Whether you're on the hunt for a look that is more classical and elegant, a covering that simply provides great privacy or just blinds to shade the light, there are many options to consider. However, before you bring out the color matching cards, there's a few other things to think about first!

Budget

Perhaps one of the most important things to take into consideration during any home improvement project is your budget. It is important to know your budget and stick to it. With that you can tailor the size of your project to your budget. Are you just dolling up one room, or the whole house? Remember, window blinds and other treatments are generally sold by size, so the bigger the windows the more expensive the covering.

Lighten up

Before you go searching for styles think about what you're using these particular window coverings for. Is your goal to block the light for a good night rest in a bedroom or are you looking to lighten up a room with great sheer fabrics that allow the sun to shine?

Privacy

Another thing to consider in regard to how tight the blinds close is how important is it that you can achieve a high level of privacy? Some window treatments are much more decorative than others, meaning it's important to remember people outside may be able to see in, even when the blinds seem to be fully shut.

Safety concerns

Some blinds and drapes have cords and other items that can be dangerous to small children, should they get their hands on them. Take these sorts of issues into consideration when deciding on what's best for your home's windows.

Prepared for cleaning?

There are some styles that will require much more effort to keep them looking their best. Be sure you're willing to take the time to care for your new window coverings before having them installed. Ask about what sort of care each style will need while you're shopping!
