When designing your perfect home and room, no detail should be left. Every aspect of the room design must be taken into consideration with style, colours and practicality being paramount. Roller blinds are the easier things to change in a room to assist a style or theme you may be going for. But would you choose roller blinds over curtains? What are the main benefits of choosing roller blinds?
How practical are roller blinds? Do they need a lot of maintenance? How hard are they to install into my own home?
Choosing Curtains Over Blinds
There are certainly big disadvantages to curtains that roller blinds do not suffer from. And in some cases, curtains just don’t fit the aesthetic of that room, where the more fitting choice is a properly measured and fitted roller blind. The size of a room and window can also play a factor in your buying decision in whether you use roller blinds or curtains.
Curtains can make a room feel smaller than it is, this is because of their bigger and bulkier design. Many people opt for roller blinds because they offer a space efficiency solution.
For people who have children or are planning on having little ones, longer curtains can be an issue. With the curtain being in reach of younger children this can lead to excessive cleaning required. This also affects people who own animals such as cats and dogs.
Curtains also tend to be more expensive to install, maintain and keep lean in comparison to blinds.
Are Roller Blinds Practical?
Roller blinds are a more space-efficient way of covering your windows. This benefits people who either have a lot of windows in their home or don’t have as much room and want to make the most of what they have. For people who have a lot of windows in one room, curtains can feel overwhelming sometimes and make the room feel more claustrophobic.
There are also health benefits to installing blinds in comparison to roller blinds. One major benefit is that roller blinds don’t collect dust, unlike curtains. Which makes cleaning the window area easier. This is good for your health because dust can cause irritation and issues with your eyes, lungs and skin.
Another benefit of having blinds is that they tend to be less expensive than curtains (depending on manufacturer). This helps people who want to renovate their homes but don’t have a large budget. Also, for little cost, blinds do make a big impact on a room’s aesthetic.
Maintenance Free Roller Blinds
With the modern design of the roller blind, maintenance has been made to become an irregular occurrence. If the blinds are fitted properly when first installed, then the blinds won’t wobble or rattle as they are being extended. If the blinds do need a bit of attention it will most likely be that a screw needs fastening down again, nothing complicated.
How Easy It Is To Install Roller Blinds?
The simple answer to that question is very easy. With only 2 fixture brackets and some screws, you could have your blinds up in no less than 10 minutes. Installing blinds could not be any simpler and is perfect for someone who is new to doing D.I.Y work.
No specialised tools are required for this blind installation. Only a screwdriver, a pencil, a tape measure and a drill.
