These days, most of the time, general decor includes the same white vertical blinds that you see in every other apartment or complex. They go with everything and they don’t make a definite statement of any kind. Even though they appear so often, the variety of window blinds available extends to bigger and better worlds than that.
The options are in the thousands, and how you decorate your windows says a lot about the room they are in. If you choose to have a nice, clean look or if you choose to go with a rustic, woody theme, there is a window design out there just for your decorations. Textures are easy to change also, as you can choose from wood, fabric, and even leather.
If you’re having trouble finding a complementary color, then why not try an exact match? If you want to match your paint perfectly, talk to a professional about purchasing the right shade. If you want to match your paint to your window blinds, all you need to do is share a sample of your window blinds with the paint mixing professional–they are great at getting it very close.
If you consider yourself a DIY project person, or one who happily hires an interior decorator, you still have nothing keeping you from making your windows have just the right touch. Fabric makes an elegant touch in any room and works very well in a cozy setting. In ball rooms or gathering places, sometimes a glamorous Victorian theme is lovely, and fabric shades can color the natural light coming in through the windows.
If you are decorating with a simple, clean look, the wood-look blinds are a great choice! When you have a theme based on the Orient, or a clean basic room, these can add some personal touches and help your windows look very manicured. It also works well for a sun room surrounded by a garden area or a wooded area outside.
When decorating for men, it takes darker colors and more clean lines. If you really want to add a nice rich accent to a office or den area, then leather is a perfect addition. This makes for a nice “manly” atmosphere without overdoing the decorating to a point where it’s too much. Guys appreciate some style without the full “overblown” affect of the rest of the home or office.
Blinds and their safety features have been in the news quite a bit here recently. Due to some unfortunate accidents, some products have finally been manufactured to prevent future tragedies. One of these is the cord tensioning device that keeps the extra string from hanging down where small children and pets can get it wrapped around themselves. Another decorating option is to go with cordless blinds, this removes the possibility of any accidents happening.
The only limitation to your window treatment decorations is your imagination. By talking with a professional decorator or accessing educational websites, you will find several choices for your vertical blinds, and there will also be tips on how to install them safely and efficiently. Perfect for every level of decorator, they make a big statement about the room and should definitely be given due credit for what they provide.
