Window fashions can make a tremendous impact on the way your room, and your house look overall. There is no rule as to what makes a window shade or window blind right for any particular room. There are as many correct choices as there are rooms. Through our years of experience, we have compiled a few decorating tips to make your window blind or window shade shopping experience easier and more enjoyable.
Bedrooms – If light bothers you when you are sleeping, then you want to stay away from horizontal blinds. Horizontal blinds are great for almost any application, but because the wood blind slats or faux wood blind slats can only close so tight, there will always be a certain amount of light that will filter through. Blackout shades, or room darkening shades will provide a much better light blocking window covering than a horizontal blind. You can find room darkening cellular shades and blackout cellular shades at SelectBlinds cellular shade section available in a great selection of colors that will be perfect for your bedroom application. Blackout Roman Shades will also serve the purpose of providing maximum light blockage, and offer more designer style options. Roman shades are more like a drapery than any other window shade. Be sure to check out our Bamboo shades and Bamboo blinds section for the Privacy Natural Wood Shades. These woven wood shades come in exotic natural wood patterns, and include a privacy liner, making them a very good decorating solution for a master bedroom window shade.
Media Rooms – Much like a bedroom, the amount of light that comes into the room is an important factor when shopping for media room window shades. Please reference the Bedrooms ideas above, as they are as relevant for the media room as they are for the bedroom.
Formal Living Rooms – Shutters are a good solution for a formal living room, especially if you have used horizontal blinds throughout your house. SelectBlinds Faux Wood shutters are available in several styles such as standard folding shutters, French door shutters, café style shutters, and bi fold shutters. Formal living room shades should be almost like a drapery. Roman shades are made of a variety of beautiful fabrics, and have 4 different fold styles, providing a classic look for your formal room.
Flexibility in design comes standard with our cell shades, horizontal blinds, sheer shades, and roller shades. Whether for a bedroom, spare room, game room, or the family room, the wide range of colors, styles, and options, make these window shades and window blinds the perfect solution for your home decorating needs. Window shades and window blinds are as personal a decorating choice as the pictures you hang on your walls. Enjoy shopping at SelectBlinds!
