The Best Blinds To Last The Test Of Time

Window blinds come with a whole host of benefits including privacy and light control, and if you are looking for a long-lasting, durable, and stylish window covering to decorate your home? Blinds are the answer.
 
From wide louvres to narrow panels, bright colours to soft hues, window shutters to cellular shades, and horizontal to vertical blinds, there are a wide variety of options for you to pick when it comes to long-lasting home decor.
 

Where do I need durable blinds?

While almost any room in the home could benefit from a durable and long-lasting blind, there are some spaces where they are needed more than others, these include:
  • Busy homes with children or pets
  • Playrooms and multipurpose rooms
  • Moist or damp environments such as bathrooms, kitchens, and cellars
  • Craft rooms or workshops
  • Hotels or commercial environments
  • Student houses or university halls

What colours should I choose?

One of the main benefits of choosing window blinds is the wide variety of colours they come in, but over the years we have seen many colours come in and out of style. Some shades stand the test of time and remain at the forefront of interior design articles but there are two colours that never fade away from the spotlight, white and black. No matter what style you have chosen, neutral colours always have a place in our home as they can match every colour under the sun.
 
When decorating a bright and colourful room, white roman blinds are a perfect choice. The modern look blends in with pops of colours throughout your furniture and designs without taking away from the overall effect. Whites are especially great for boldly decorated rooms to avoid taking the eye away from your interior design choices.
 
Darkly colour blinds such as black roller blinds will create a soft and cosy room. They are especially attractive in rooms with cream painted walls as this will create a beautiful monochrome look, allowing your statement furniture to come to life.
