Blinds vs Curtains

There are so many occasions when you are considering dressing your windows, whether in your home, office, factory etc. Once you have decided on the colour of the room and décor, it is essential that the window dressing will compliment not only the room but also the light being reflected into the room and the simplicity or complicated dressing of the windows and patio doors.

There are pros and cons to both curtains and blinds and these need to be taken into consideration, but today a lot of people are coming to the conclusion that blinds can be a cheaper, easier option which are easy to clean and come in such a variety of colours and materials that it is hard to not find something which will compliment your room and style.

Advantages of Blinds

  • Blinds can match most room styles, regardless of changes you make to the wall and furniture colours and come in a variety of styles and fabrics.
  • Depending upon the style, they can be quite inexpensive and if one of the blind slats is broken, it can easily be replaced.
  • Blinds can reveal much more of a window than curtains and can be drawn across to let in the light but cut down on the sun.
  • Vertical blinds are easy to clean, and can be fitted within the window/patio door space or outside so therefore can be more flexible than curtains.
  • The blinds themselves can be dressed with valances etc. to give a different feel/look.
    Blinds, like curtains can be made to order.

Disadvantages of Blinds

  • Horizontal blinds can be very difficult to clean and keep clean.
  • Blinds don’t keep all the light out during the day.
  • They can be very expensive depending on the design and style.

Advantages of Curtains

  • Available in many different fabrics and styles that can match your room, including cotton, silk, linen, sheer fabric, heavy fabrics and tapestries.
  • Can be made in the same material as your furnishings and can be lined or unlined.

Disadvantages of Curtains

  • Over time the sun can often fade the colour and lining can deteriorate. The material can become weaker.
  • If you change the style and or colour of your room they can be difficult to match with the new surroundings.
  • It can be quite expensive to have curtains made to order.
  • It is often difficult to buy the correct size for the window.
  • Do not cut out the sun without cutting out the light.
