Before you choose blinds or shutters for you home, there are a few things to consider, including the type of window, the room they will be going in, the cost and your personal preference.
If you have standard windows, fitted blinds or shutters should fit. However, if you have got unusually shaped windows, such as an arched or circular window, shutters will be the best option. The elegance of shutters will complement the beauty of an unusually-shaped window. Alternatively, if you have a lot of windows in one room (think conservatories!), then blinds may be the better option as they will be the most cost-effective.
Both blinds and shutters look great in every room of the home. However, if you are choosing a window dressing for your kitchen, dining room or children’s bedroom, you may want something easy to clean and maintain. Therefore, shutters may be a better option. Alternatively, you may want to choose blinds with a PVC coating.
Or, if you have just moved into your home, or you have recently renovated, you may want a window dressing that will last a long time, such as shutters.
Your budget plays a huge role in the type of window dressing you choose. If you are looking for quality, style and longevity, shutters are for you. However, if you are working with a tight budget, blinds may be the better option.
And of course, your style and preference make the final decision! If you are looking for style and elegance in your lounge, shutters are the window dressing for you. Or if you want a playfully patterned window dressing for a child’s bedroom, blinds are the best option.
