Should I Buy Blinds or Curtains?


It is interesting to note that many people do not relate their health condition with the type of window treatments that are to be used in a room. In fact some window coverings should be discounted immediately due to allergies and respiratory issues. A good example of this is where a person may have severe asthma and having wooden or plastic venetian blinds in the room. In general, blinds tend to be a magnet for dust collection, which would mean they would need to be cleaned very regularly. From experience cleaning blinds properly can be a time consuming task. On the other hand, curtain materials that are light and airy are much easier to keep free of dust mites and would provide a healthier option for the asthma/allergy sufferer.

Secondly, another factor in the decision to go with blinds or curtains has to be down to the purpose of the room. Bedrooms tend to benefit from the use of blinds. The reason for this is because they are very effective at blocking outside lighting sources. Conversely, a window over the kitchen sink may be an example of a window where curtains are preferable, since you want to have access to natural light most of the time.

A third consideration between blinds or curtains would be the décor of the room/area. Naturally you would like blinds or curtains to complement what you already in the room; carpets, walls, furniture, etc. With older homes that have tall ceilings and period furniture, it would do much better with heavy curtains. However, bungalows with shorter ceilings and windows would probably benefit from the airy feeling that blinds can give both the room and the window. This could be accented by fitting a simple valance.

In conclusion, your personal preference for window treatments will be the determining factor between blinds or curtains. Some people prefer a minimal but functional amount of dressing for a window. If that is the case, then blinds would be your solution. However, if you see your windows as a place to add a splash of colour, then curtains would be the obvious choice. In the end, blinds or curtains can look attractive and add style and character to the ambiance of the room. If your choice can be made on individual taste and the functional needs for the room, then you will be happy with the choice.
