Advantages Of Blinds Over Curtains

When decorating a room, getting a fresh look or furnishing your brand new house, one of the main considerations should be window coverings. The two main options a person has is either curtains or blinds. It can be difficult to choose between the two as they each have advantages over the other but this is why we think blinds are the best choice.


1. You are able to control the light that comes into a room with ease.

Blinds provide you with more options over the light that comes into a room. With curtains you pretty much have open or shut with maybe the option to open one curtain. How many times have you sat in a chair and each time the sun moves you have had to get up adjust one of the curtains and then got up and down all afternoon so you can see the screen. You don’t want to completely shut them as you then feel as you are missing out on the daylight. With blinds you have a lot more control, you can adjust them at an angle so the light still comes in but it blocks the sun from one side or at a particular height depending on which type of blind you have. You can fully open them, shut them or have them at various angles in between. This is particularly important in rooms with screens be it a television or a computer.

2. You have numerous colours and styles to choose from

Many people see the fact that you can get curtains in any fabric as an advantage but this is also true for blinds. You can get blinds made in a very wide range of colours, patterns and styles so you can create exactly the look you are after. The extra advantage over curtains is that you also get to choose the type of blind be it vertical blinds, roman blinds, roller blinds or something else.

3. Large Variety of Materials

So curtains come in fabric we all pretty much know that. Blinds can also come in fabric but you also have a choice of so many other materials. You can choose wood, metal, plastic or even faux wood or metal and they all come in a variety of colours, sheens and grains. You can vary the width of the slats also so they are totally bespoke to what you are looking to achieve.

4. More Privacy

We have seen above that blinds are flexible when it comes to the amount of light that you want to come into a room. Well the same is true for privacy. If the flow of traffic outside the house is one way then you can adjust them to face the other way. You could choose top down blinds where the top half folds down so you have light coming in but no one can see into the house. Also even when you have the blind’s slats open it is much harder to see in as it distorts the view.

5. Upkeep and Maintenance are easy

Curtains can be hard to clean, sure you can hoover them but if you want to wash them you may have to get them dry cleaned or at least put them in the washing machine, iron them and rehang them which is not the easiest of jobs. With most blinds a quick dust or wipe and they are as good as new. The blinds will stay as good as new for years and years especially if you have wooden or metal blinds; they can last a lifetime! Just keep them until you want to change the look of the room and then replace them.

6. Price

Curtains can be very expensive if you want good fabrics as they use a lot of fabric. Fabric blinds use far less material and are therefore much cheaper. As stated before if you want wooden blinds and can’t afford them then faux wood is available which is much more cost effective and looks just like the real thing.

So all in all we believe that blinds offer a more flexible, cost effective and easily maintained window covering that is available in loads of different options. We at Blind Megastore stock a huge range of these options so why not browse the site or contact us and we will find you the ideal solution for your room.
