Blinds come in different colors, pattern, and materials, making it difficult to make a decision as to what is the most suitable for your bedroom. In this post, we will look at the factors that matter in selecting the right blinds for bedrooms.
As the saying goes, different strokes for different folks. Your personal style and taste should be a big factor when selecting blinds for your bedroom, after all, you will be the one to spend time in there. If you prefer a bedroom with a streamlined, modern look, roller blinds will be your perfect choice. On the other hand, Venetian blinds are known for their perfect lines that provides a feeling of neatness.
Unlike other parts of the house, the bedroom is primarily for relaxation. So it is important that you go for patterns and colors that promote relaxation. When it comes to blinds for bedrooms, cool colors are the best option but it is also important that you consider the color preferences of your partner or roommate if you share the room with someone else.
That said, try as much as possible to avoid overly bright colors and bold patterns as they can be visually exhausting. And do not forget to consider the colors of your beddings when making this decision.
Blockout roller blinds are particularly good for reducing the amount of light entering the room. You can use this in your rooms of any member of your family that is sensitive to light. But if you don’t like blocking natural light entirely, vertical blinds give you a certain level of control.
You can adjust the slats to achieve the degree of light and privacy that you deem suitable. You can also pair an inside mounted blind with a sheer curtain hanging overtop, this will guarantee you some privacy even when the blind is up, allowing natural light to illuminate the room.
Blinds are made of different materials and this is a factor you should also consider. If you suffer from dust allergy, blinds made of hard materials will be the best for you. This is because such blinds retain less amount of dust and they are less tedious to clean up.
In the same vein, the positioning of your bedroom as it relates to sunlight is also very important. Particularly, you should avoid aluminum Venetian blinds if your bedroom gets a lot of sunlight.
While blinds pose little to no safety concern for adults, children are more at risk, especially if you opt for blinds with a corded system. There are lots of safer options out there like blinds with electronic controls, spring-loaded blinds, or using tensioners to make sure that cords are neatly and safely held in place.
