Makes the space look bigger
Did you know that windows in any given room can take up almost 25% of the wall space? So before you select the style and colour of your curtains or blinds, it’s important to consider how this could impact the space. For example, if the room already features cool tones like navy, dark grey or brown, then adding another dark colour could make the space look smaller. White on the other hand, blends well with any colour palette, which gives the room a light and airy feel. If you're not the most confident when it comes to choosing colour you can't go wrong with white or off-white. Because white is one of the most basic colours, it looks great with everything.
Choosing the right colour for new curtains and blinds might feel intimidating. Thirty years ago brown and orange floral curtains were considered stylish, but now most people would see them and cringe. Firstly, white is a timeless colour, so you don’t need to worry about your window furnishings becoming dated. Secondly, it’s a colour that matches perfectly with all other colours and decor styles. No colour creates an air of relaxation more than white. The crispness, the freshness, and the blank canvas created when you decorate with white leaves the door to the imagination wide open. It is truly a refreshing, classic and calming colour and can look great as ready made curtains or sheer blinds.
Perfect for all seasons
It’s no secret that decor influences the mood of a room. For example, wool throw blankets, leather chairs and dark grey pinch pleat curtains create a cosy and feel. One of the great things about decorating your window furnishings with white is it can create a warm winter vibe or a refreshing summer mood. The windows in your home are one of the most interesting pieces you have. They frame the outdoors, bringing nature and all its beauty into your home. As summer approaches, it's time to really make the most of your windows. You can create the relaxed feel you have on a tropical getaway, right in your own room.
Unlimited style options
When you shop at Quickfit Blinds & Curtains, the style, fabric and tone options are endless. You can dress your windows in whimsical, soft flowing textures. White sheer blinds blowing gently in the breeze on a warm summer evening is a great way to end your day. Pull up a chair, turn on your favourite tune, sit back and enjoy the breeze in your very own tropical getaway.If the tropical, relaxed look is not for you, maybe try a more formal, heavier drape. A solid white eyelet curtain on a modern chrome pole or rod adds timeless style. The fresh, crisp look achieved with metres of softly draped white fabric across the span of your wall will provide a calming and cooling effect. White cools and soothes. Think snow.
