Looking at Curtains vs. Blinds – Which to Choose?

The two primary functions of curtains and blinds are privacy and light control. When decorating your home to improve its look and feel, it’s important to take into consideration the purpose your blinds will serve, the room they will be in, colours, blackout lining options and energy saving properties as each decision can impact on your homes’ décor and style and possibly affect its resale value.

Neutral colours generally show off your property to its best and provides a comfortable atmosphere in which to live and enjoy.

Motorised blinds are a good way to add both convenience and value to your home and although it can be seen as added expense initially, they add significant resale value to the home. Motorised blinds are able to be opened or closed from the comfort of your seat at the push of a button, and can protect the interior of your home from the sun’s rays regardless of the angle. Because of its impressive visual impact of simultaneous operation and its ability to discourage burglars with timing functions while you’re away, it creates the ‘wow factor’ making it a great selling point for homes.

There is a growing popularity to combine both curtains and blinds to exhibit the ultimate of decoration and function, giving homeowners more control over the light without sacrificing beauty. This combination can suit both worlds when indecisive about what way to go, but because of the combined costs can be quite expensive.

Roman blinds make for a great alternative to this, giving you, the luxurious appearance of draping curtains combined with the mechanisms of blinds. Because they vary from a classic timber plank look, to fabric style options they are incredibly adaptable for any room or purpose. There are no styling limitations with Roman blinds and they are still able to provide adequate sun blockage and room insulation proving to be fantastic for homeowners on the lookout to sell.

Most curtains and blinds have the same benefits of energy saving properties, privacy and function and it’s choosing the right style for your room’s purpose that ultimately boosts the investment opportunities for your home. Revitalising both the interior and exterior can be what makes your property stand out from the rest and provides the family with a relaxing environment in which to live.
