Lately, there has been a noticeable trend among interior designers and homeowners to ditch the classic curtain in favour of blinds when it comes to bedroom designs. Admittedly, this does look very stylish and modern, but what exactly is it that makes bedroom blinds such a popular choice of late?
Let us take a closer look at some of the reasons why people are investing in bedroom blinds:
If you still think of blinds as those grey, vertical, tangled mess reminiscent of outdated offices from the seventies and eighties, think again. Nowadays, the style, design and colour choices are as varied as can be. With such a wide selection available, it provides the perfect solution for any look you want to go for – whether you prefer a classic, modern, urban or rustic approach. Furthermore, the range of production materials also ensures that there will be an option that perfectly matches your bedroom furniture and décor.
One very important feature that basically everyone wants for their bedroom is privacy. This is your inner sanctuary where you want to be able to relax completely. Blinds offer the perfect solution. It is your choice whether you want to open your room to the outside space or if you want complete privacy. Yet, even when opened to let in light and fresh air, you can still enjoy complete privacy without compromising on the airiness of your room.
This is another top consideration for homeowners. Whether you enjoy light streaming through your room or want a complete blackout to help you sleep (or to enjoy bingeing your favourite TV series while lying in bed), bedroom blinds let you have it your way. You can choose from solid cloth options that allow light to filter through, or you can invest in a more solid option to make the room darker, especially if you need it for that precious, uninterrupted beauty sleep.
Thick and heavy curtains, often preferred for bedrooms due to their blackout potential, can be very expensive, especially if you have large windows or prefer a floor-to-ceiling solution. Bedroom blinds provide a much more affordable option, and they are completely customisable, thereby ensuring that there will be a suitable solution, no matter the size or shape of your windows.
Dust allergies are a very common occurrence among the population. And while there isn’t much you can do about the existence of dust; you can take certain precautions to lessen your exposure to it. Curtains are notorious for collecting dust, which could provide an additional source of irritation to those sensitive to this allergy. Bedroom blinds are less prone to capturing dust, making them more friendly for those suffering from dust allergies.
Easy to Clean
Bedroom blinds are also much easier to clean and maintain than traditional curtains. When dust or other dirt settles on the slats, you simply wipe it off with a damp cloth. No struggling to take the curtains down, fit it into a washing machine, hanging it out to air or have it dry cleaned … Just a simple wipe will leave your bedroom blinds looking good as new.
