Choosing the right blind for your window may be a very difficult decision for some people, and it’s understandable, there are so many factors to consider!


They say money makes the world go round. In choosing a blind it is important to realize you are choosing a feature in your house you will have to live with for a long time. Obviously your financial ability does have the final say. Buying something a bit more expensive will last longer and rather invest in a good quality blind than buying something you are unhappy with later.


What is the basic colour range of the room in which you want to hang the blinds? To determine a room’s colour range, look at the floor and walls. One doesn’t change these that often. Some furniture in the room may also play a role in deciding which colour blinds to buy.


Do you want to be bold? Do you want a contrast or do you want the blind to blend in? What is the style of the furniture, wall hangings and other features in the room? Also, do you want a cottage look, a modern look, a cool room or a warm look?


Children, dogs and cats bring different questions to the front. The basic question is how will they interact with the blind? Heat, sun and dampness are other factors to consider.

The right blind can bring a room together, add a touch of warmth and style so it is of highest importance to choose the right kind of blind for the particular room.
