Decorland: Turning A Blind Eye To Dreary Interiors
‘Lockdown’ may very well be the most often repeated word of 2020, and it has certainly given us a new perspective on the inside of our abodes. Consumer spending trends and an increase in home loan applications reveals a significant increase in investment in the home. Home DIY and renovations have become a hot topic in 2020 and look set to keep us busy for some time to come.
But even with this increased interest, we are still budget conscious and looking for beauty and style without breaking the bank.
Don’t despair – there is a glimmer of hope if you find yourself miserably paging through decorating magazines and glumly gazing at home improvement TV programmes wondering how all of this is possible with limited resources. Your modest personal budget does not have to mean the end of your decorating dreams.
If you want to make your home look amazing without spending a king’s ransom, the experts recommend transforming rooms with clever, cost-effective additions. Often, something as simple as installing a new blind can give a room a whole new feel. And the right advice on window décor can point you towards the right product at the right price, turning an expensive exercise into a budget-beating bonanza!
Today, blinds are viewed as a valued home improvement rather than a simple design expense. The functionality and versatility of blinds as a modern twist on window décor presents a dazzling array of possibilities for even the most discerning homeowner.
Stylish and trendy, blinds are not only perfect for a sleek and minimalist design, but they also have a number of extremely useful features worth considering.
Playing it cool
By restricting sunlight entering your home, blinds assist to regulate the heat in the warmer summer months. During winter, blinds create a cozy interior and reduce energy costs by trapping heat inside your living area. From Venetian blinds that block out harsh rays while letting in just enough light for day-to-day activities, to roller blinds that block out the light completely, variety is truly the spice of life!
In addition, blinds help in preventing your furniture from discolouring or fading. Again, this is because they help in blocking out excessive amounts of sunlight.
Protecting Your privacy
Your blinds don’t only control the amount of light entering your home; they provide a barrier against prying eyes at the same time. Passersby will no longer be able to see the interior of your home, adding a level of safety and security to your home.
One of the best things about window blinds is that they are easy to maintain and clean. In fact, many blinds simply require a quick wipe with a damp cloth from time to time to remove dust or debris.
Blinds are also long lasting, especially blinds made from wood or aluminium, meaning you won’t have to replace them until you decide you are ready for a change.
