Picture Perfect Blinds; A Buyers Guide Part I
Blinds are a great way to add colour and personality into a room (even if we do say so ourselves) but choosing the blinds for your home can often be very difficult – there’s is just too much choice! Where do you go, what colour do you want, do you want plain or pattern blinds and what style of blind do you want? These are all questions which you are bombarded with, but don’t panic because buying blinds can be fun – you just need a little help to take away any of the unnecessary stress, which is where we at Sunrise Blindscan help.
Pick a Style
This is the easy part – when your redecorating it’s great to get overexcited about developing the style of a room, and when you’ve decided, this will ultimately dictate what the look you choose. Blinds are one of the last things to worry about when re-decorating, so take a step back – and in the words of Jack Sparrow – “wait until the opportune moment”.
Pick a Colour
This will be influenced by the colour scheme of the room, and this is one of the reasons why you wait until the room is decorated before picking your blinds. There are two ways you can utilise your new blinds – they can become part of the interior design in that they will act as an accessory or alternatively you can choose to have them blend seamlessly into the background.
The image to the right showcases blinds which blend into the background, and because of this they actively enhance the colour already ready in your interior design. Whereas the blinds to the left have a unique colour scheme which acts as part of the interior design – adding a splash of colour where previously there was little or none.
Pick a Fabric
Once you’ve decided on a colour scheme you will find that the fabric will naturally follow. You’ll naturally be drawn to your blinds without consciously thinking about the fabric.
