There are times when we’re all a bit or more in the wanderlust mood, in need of that simple escape just to experience some change of the everyday routine and surroundings. That’s not to say however that we can all afford to or explore the world as much or as often as we’d like. It’s only human nature to grow tired of seeing the same sights day in and day out. However, before you end up getting so tired of your home, that you start considering moving out like I did (desperate times call for desperate measures), make way for some interior improvements. I used to think complete makeovers were the functional option that could help you transform your décor, but the key is always in the details.
After several attempts to get an eye-catching outcome with decorative cushions, rugs and a few of my painter aunt’s creations, I had the feeling something was still missing. Since I am always up for cost effective and trendy solutions, I did some thorough research and ended up with roller blinds as the decorating element to include in my home. Being passionate about sunrises, sunsets, stargazing and cloud shapes, I hadn’t thought of implementing window coverings before. Though there are all kinds of blinds, the roller type caught my attention because of the many benefits it provides. As I mentioned trendy before, the reason behind the roller blinds popularity is in their affordability and stylishness, plus you can easily find online roller blinds and make your order fast instead of spending all the time doing window shopping.
You’d be surprised of the impact they have on the overall décor. If you’re up for adding a dash of vividness to your living nest, like me, you can choose colour roller blinds or amp up their charm with some drapers, curtains or pelmets for a touch of softness, and voilà, you welcome freshness and luxury in your home without breaking the bank. Pairing blinds and curtains (with placing blinds underneath) is perfect if you want to create a visual impact and make your small windows seem bigger. This will considerably make the space warmer, resulting in a pleasant atmosphere. Since you won’t be making this kind of purchase constantly, you should be after quality as well. When buying online roller blinds from specialised shops, you have the chance to order free samples prior to your purchase so you see whether the fabric or the colour matches your taste.
Choosing from the vastness of materials, you get to have a say into how much sunlight enters your home; light filtering are not as obstructive as the blockout ones. Thinking from a hygienic point of view, roller blinds require low maintenance and cleaning them won’t be another chore on your list. I’d say that was another aspect that made me want to buy them immediately. Just wipe them out with a damp cloth or vacuum them and they’re perfectly clean. They even turned out to be the ideal insulation I needed which was seen in the monthly amount of energy costs, so they can also be of help if you’re up for some energy conservation. If you have children, take safety matters seriously and either apply a blinds cleat or motorise them. Getting to know more of roller blinds, I’m sensing you, dear readers, are about to become fans of this window treatment as well.
