The kids have just left home, and we are redecorating their rooms. I'm finally going to get the home office that I've always wanted, and my husband is going to get a sewing room. It's an amazing feeling to be entering into this new stage of our life. We need to redecorate the rooms a fair bit - as I don't think that anyone is going to take me seriously on work video conferencing calls in a black walled room with rock posters behind me! This blog is all about redecorating your empty nest so that you can make the most of your extra space.
Typically homeowners will view window treatments as a means of protecting their privacy as well as blocking any unwanted direct sunlight from penetrating their residence. As such, the traditional options considered tend to be curtains and drapes as they have been used for time immemorial. However, if you would like to enhance the style of your home and improve on your interior décor, then you should consider indoor blinds.
Why choose indoor blinds?
These blinds come in a wide assortment of colours and styles, thus you can rest assured you will find indoor blinds that will suit your own individual style choices. Additionally, they are much easier to clean and maintain when compared to conventional curtains and drapes. This makes them a convenient option for homeowners who do not want to be bothered with additional chores of removing their curtains, washing them, drying them, ironing them and finally putting them back up. Below are some of the indoor blinds you could consider to enhance the style of your home.
These types of blinds are one of the simplest designs that you could choose from. Roman blinds can be made from either fabric or bamboo materials. They can be easily lowered whenever you would prefer some privacy or would like to reduce the amount of natural light in the home.
As the name suggests, the slats of these blinds are arranged vertically. They add a graceful charm to your windows. Vertical blinds are ideal for homeowners whose primary design theme for their home is formal sophistication. If you find this is too formal for the entire home, you could opt to install these window blinds in rooms used for more serious matters such as a home office. Vertical blinds are also an ideal option for homeowners who would like to control the amount of light that gets into their home without compromising on the privacy the blinds provide.
If making the most of natural lighting is your primary concern, then you should consider sheer blinds. These types of blinds are a marriage between drapery and vertical blinds. This is because they are primarily made from fabric materials but appear similar to vertical blinds. They are a more informal option for the home and make a great addition to living areas used for entertaining guests. Sheer blinds function to allow in as much natural light as possible while still blocking direct radiant heat from the sun.
