Having the same blinds or curtains in each and every room of the home was once common practice. This uniform look was seen in most homes and especially in those windows that faced the street and were, therefore, more likely to be judged by neighbours and passers-by.
However, in more recent times, we have become much more relaxed and experimental when it comes to how we choose to decorate our homes. Although some may choose to use the same blinds throughout their interior it’s much more acceptable to mix and match your window treatments, choosing a different style for different rooms inside the home.
Below are three reasons why you may choose to install the same style of blinds throughout your home.
Uniformity Creates Cohesion
One of the reasons some people may choose to keep their blinds the same in every room of the house is that it’s a simple way to keep your interior design scheme cohesive. It’s often much easier to experiment with other aspects of interior design such as the artwork or soft furnishings if the main features such as flooring, walls and window treatments are the same or very similar in each room.
Choosing the same style of blinds is a good idea if you’re decorating a more open plan home as it can be slightly more difficult to create a cohesive look in these types of areas.
Uniformity Has Great ‘Curb Appeal’
Another reason you may choose to use the same blinds throughout your home, especially on windows that face the street, is to improve the houses ‘curb appeal’. Having the same blinds in each window can make your home look well-finished and a lot cleaner from the outside.
White timber Venetian blinds are a great option for those looking to make the exterior of their home look more appealing whilst not sacrificing on style indoors. The great thing about Venetians is that they suit both traditional and contemporary homes and lend them themselves to a wide range of interior design styles.
Whilst the days of our neighbours judging us based on the appearance of our houses is long gone, there are other reasons as to why you may want to improve the way your home looks from the outside. One reason may be if you’re planning on selling your home, or if you’re decorating an investment property.
One of the best ways to choose which style of curtain or blind to use in each room inside your home is by considering the function of the individual room. Many styles of blinds these days have beneficial qualities, for example, our double blinds are manufactured using materials that have light-blocking qualities. Having more control over the amount of light or how much privacy you have within any area of your home may be highly important and therefore will sway your decision on the best-suited blinds for your space.
As well as the points listed above, there are a number of different reasons as to why you may choose to use the same blinds throughout your home. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to dress your windows and often the most important consideration should be if your chosen window treatment suits your personal style.
