Custom-made blinds are the cherry on top of a well-designed home. They’re an opportunity to make your home look crisp and clean, while also adding to your environment in the practical sense. Ultimately, they’re the perfect blend of form and function.
We’ve been in the business of creating custom blinds our customers love for over thirty years. Therefore, we’ve seen the way they can elevate a home. Read on to discover five ways custom blinds can change your home for the better.
Giving Your Insulation a Helping Hand
Windows are made from glass, a well-known conductor of heat. Leaving your windows uncovered allows heat to flow freely from within your home to the outdoors and vice versa, creating gaps in an otherwise well-insulated home. Therefore, your home will find itself cold in the winter and warm in the summer.
While double-glazed windows are certainly an option for reducing heat transfer, they’re also costly. On the other hand, since cloth is an effective insulator, custom blinds accomplish the same purpose at a heavily reduced price point and will benefit you in many other ways.
Reduces Noise Pollution
Speaking of transfer in an out of the home, another unwelcome intruder is noise! If you live in a busy or noisy area, then you know how frustrating it can be to battle with extraneous sounds from day-to-day.
Installing custom blinds in your home will help to reduce this troublesome noise pollution effectively! Most blind materials, including fabric, wood, etc., interrupt sound waves, reducing their strength and making noise quieter as it passes through the blinds. This is a cost-effective choice that adds a lovely design element to your windows rather than addressing the issue structurally, thereby costing you time, money, and energy.
Creates Privacy on Your Terms
We have a variety of blinds dedicated to creating privacy and solitude in any kind of home. If you live in an apartment and find yourself locking eyes with a neighbour in the building across the street, or if you want to turn your bedroom into a more private sanctuary, then blinds are the choice for you.
Depending on the kind of style you wish to exude, you can choose from any number of styles: roller blinds, venetian blinds, vertical blinds, and even motorised blinds. Vertical blinds are our most cost-effective solution, while roller blinds completely obscure the outside and offer a bolder choice of design. It all depends on you!
Treats Your Windows as a Part of the Home
All too often, homeowners and designers alike treat windows like a bland space that can be ignored. Blinds are chosen based solely on price and then they move on, but they’re missing an opportunity to be creative with an interesting space!
Elevate your chosen aesthetic and tie the whole home together with your choice of custom blinds. For example, wooden venetian blinds add a warm and natural touch to the home, whereas sunscreen blinds are perfect for a sunlit room in need of modern sun protection. Don’t be afraid to experiment with swatches or consult our experts for their opinion.
Provides You with a Good Night’s Sleep
The one benefit of blinds we have not yet discussed is, arguably, essential to your day-to-day happiness—putting the right blinds in your bedroom is a sure-fire way to get a good night’s sleep.
We have all tried to sleep through the sun pouring in through the windows and transparent curtains, and we have all failed. While rising with the sun is a lovely idea, most of us need to sleep past six in the morning. That’s where blackout blinds come in!
Our roller blinds come in blackout-level fabric density, and they don’t have to be black to work. The thickness of the fabric will restrict any light from penetrating through the blinds and you can sleep on in peace.
All these benefits come at a cost-effective price point with minimal hassle and a fantastic payoff. Even the smallest detail can make a huge difference when it comes to the design of your home, and when you install the perfect blinds you will find that they make a world of difference.
