Why You May Want To Choose Drapes Over Blinds

11th Mar 2016

Decorating a new home or redecorating a few existing rooms in your home? A fast and easy way to improve the look of your home is to add some new drapes to your windows. Here at Quickfit Blinds & Curtains, we have a huge selection of drapes and other types of curtains online. Today, we've got a few reasons as to why you may want to choose to decorate your windows with drapes rather than blinds.

The Aesthetic: Our drapes come in a large variety of fabrics and styles and can even be customized to your windows and decor. Blinds only cover the window itself while drapes can be hung in many different ways, adding an elegance that you simply can't find with blinds.

The Insulation: Whether it's winter or summer, drapes guarantee the highest level of insulation value compared to blinds. For example, lined drapes can give your home up to 50 percent insulation value, but mini blinds only offer around 10 percent insulation value.

The Privacy: Drapes will always provide superior privacy over blinds because they completely prevent anyone from being able to see into your home. On the contrary, blinds have multiple gaps that actually decrease the amount of insulation and privacy provided.

The Cleanability: Drapes show significantly less fingerprints, dirt, and dust accumulation when compared to blinds. Easy to maintain, drapes only need to be vacuumed about once a month and professionally dry cleaned every two years.

Taking these factors into consideration when deciding on whether or not you want blinds or drapes will help you make the right decision for your home and lifestyle. Ready to start shopping for curtains online now? Shop Quickfit Blinds & Curtains today and save big!
