Why Should You Pick Window Blinds Over Curtains?

Window coverings are a great way to complement your home’s decor. They also add value to the place by letting you take control of the amount of light and temperature you let in, not to mention the protection from prying eyes that could violate your privacy!

There are a number of choices when it comes to picking the perfect one for your home, but the most popular are the blinds with adjustable slats, and curtains or drapes made of fabric panels. Of them, blinds have a certain set of unique advantages over curtains.

Let’s take a look at them and note the benefits of choosing blinds over curtains, thus helping you make an informed decision about buying the best blinds Newcastle has to offer!

Saving on Electricity Bills

With window blinds, you can most efficiently block out light and heat during the day, keeping your home cool even in the summer, and of course vice-versa during winter.

Blinds provide better control of light, their slatted design allows even filtering of light when you want to spread a dash of sunlight across the room. Which of course, with curtains, you wouldn’t be able to. As you could either have them completely drawn in or opened up in sections at different angles, which doesn’t spread the light across as evenly as the blinds could.

Also, blinds in the North East are a great option for those who have children who need to nap during the day and enjoy the cool breeze through their open windows in the evening.

Saving on Installation Cost and Time

Curtains are typically more expensive to acquire or set up, as they require more material and effort to manufacture and install. Blinds in the North East on the other hand are very cost-effective and consume less time to be designed or installed. Our professionals can have the brackets installed, the blinds mounted, and the slat mechanisms attached in a fraction of the time it would take to do the same for the curtains.

Also, the slats can be designed to be positioned vertically or horizontally (known as Venetian blinds) for more design variation and vision control.

Saving on Maintenance and Cleaning

Because blinds have a slick, firm surface, cleaning them is a simple and quick process. A dampened cloth with a material-appropriate solution is all that is needed to keep the blinds as good as new for years.

But, cleaning the curtains is a whole different story, from the need to vacuum often, to having to use store-bought specialized solutions for stain treatments, to having to be washed for multiple rounds to just keep them looking fresh, the process of curtain maintenance is endless.

So, when all is said and done, you can choose to give blinds in Newcastle a try.
