Useful information about blinds to think about for your next window covering project!

Posted On May 15, 2023

When thinking about blinds, I think: neat, simple, orderly, compact, functional. They’re easy to clean, and they will give me full exposure of the window when I want a non-obstructed view.

Here are some general tips when selecting blinds:

  • Verticals or any vertical sheers will enhance the height of the room.
  • For vertical blinds, make sure to allow 3/4” clearance from the floor for easy traversing.
  • For Wood or Venetian blinds, consider the use of decorative tapes to add color, pattern, and that customized look to the room.
  • If vibrant colors are preferred, consider metal blinds. They are available in a wide array of colors, come cordless, and you can add tape to 2” slats for a rich, customized look. Make sure that the color of the metal blind is white to the street side, especially the front of the house; otherwise, the facade of will not look unified.
  • Generally, the smaller the slats, the less light comes in when they are open.
  • The top-down feature is great for allowing some light in while maintaining privacy at the same time. This feature is ideal for cutting the sun’s glare when working on a computer. Now the cellular shades with the top-down feature come with cords hidden to the sides for a neater look that does not disturb the view.
  • Select cordless for child and pet safety.

    • Retail stores have limited selections of fabrics, colors, and styles.
    • Many providers simply replicate trends or recycle previous designs.
    • And far too many designers are more interested in their ideas than yours.

You deserve to feel heard, and your designs should celebrate your creative voice.
