Curtains vs fabric blinds, which one is the best for you?
Have you just bought a new house or are renting out a new space and want to decorate it? It is important to decide which room would be better suited to curtains or blinds. If you would like to use both for a luxurious look, think about the window space and interior scheme in order to create a sophisticated layered look that is well-balanced and not overwhelmed with the visual weight of the fabrics.
Don’t worry as we have written down all possible benefits and difficulties that lie in choosing either, and it will help you make a decision as per your requirements.
Your style and décor preference are very important when you want to choose either curtains or blinds. Pleated curtains are used in a more traditional setting while eyelet curtains can be used for modern styles as well. Similarly, most blinds are used in modern and sleek interiors and create a perfect contemporary look like roller blind and vertical blind, while roman blind are a kind of hybrid between the two and can be used in traditional interior décor as well.
Traditional patterns like gingham, checks and floral design can create some stunning looks when they are used in curtains, creating a flow in the fabric. For blinds, the strong geometric pattern like honeycomb or Greek key creates a more appealing effect because of their naturally flat surface.
Ideally, curtains are used in living rooms and bedroom. The volume of the fabric and the fitting of the curtains provide and show the height of the room, especially in larger openings like a balcony. If you don’t take into account the interior style, blinds are essentially used in smaller openings and in the bathrooms for easy use.
There are different ways to clean a curtain, but maintaining the fabric is not as easy because of the volume of the drapes if they are large. In this instance, window blinds are easier and can simply be taken down already folded or rolled.
