Blinds are a practical, tasteful and often cost effective alternative to curtains or drapes. This is especially true in the kitchen, where curtains will quickly become soiled in the presence of heat and cooking. Blinds, particularly the timber variety, can also act as a form of insulation and help you regulate the internal temperature of your home. They also offer some soundproofing capability, though this will depend on the quality, type and density of the wood.
A retailer offering a full service blind service will typically cover the whole spectrum of services related to blinds and related products. This is a convenient and hassle free one stop shop for all your blind needs and may include a range of services such as:
Functionality - ensure the blinds you choose are suited to the environment they will be hung in. Avoid timber blinds in the kitchen as the wood will deteriorate when exposed to heat, humidity and cooking oil splatter. PVC or aluminium are a more practical solution in this case. Vertical blinds may also be more practical in some cases, especially if dust is an issue.
Maintenance - avoid cheaper brands as they will invariably need repair and regular replacement of washers and adjuster cords. Also bear in mind how easy your blind is to clean, and choose the appropriate material accordingly.
Style - blinds should blend seamlessly into the interior décor of your home, and can coordinate with your furnishings and decoration too. Choose sleek aluminium or coloured blinds for a contemporary feel, or Roman blinds if you are developing a period theme. The size of the slats or vanes will also influence the feel and look of blinds, so compare and choose carefully.
Aspect - the aspect or position of your home or window in relation to the sun is important when choosing blinds. Strong direct morning or afternoon sun on a room will require a blind that is able to shade it adequately.
