It is time for a home makeover. Well, it always time for a home makeover, as the house proud among us will attest. Always looking to make something better, whether it be replacing some worn furniture, putting up some new pictures around the house or ever buying new plates or glasses. There is something to be done all the time and this time, you want to focus on the windows and what can block out that ghastly sunshine when you are trying to sleep or watching something on television.
At the moment, you have curtains but it’s time to switch to roller blinds. In your opinion, curtains may have had their day in the sun, pardon the pun. They have done you well, but you think that roller blinds are the sleeker way to go, they will transform your house, especially your windows into a place that looks amazing and modern and everything you hoped for.
There are several advantages of installing roller blinds which we will discuss below.
- Easy to clean
Have you ever cleaned your curtains? Have you ever thought to clean your curtains? The answer is probably not. Not because you don’t care but because they don’t get much use so why would you? The reality is they carry a lot of dust and other dirt so cleaning them is for the best. However, trying to sleep without them is not, while they get sent to the dry cleaners. Roller blinds on the other hand are the easy to clean alternative. Just take a damp cloth and watch the dust disappear, leaving them looking brand new all over again.
- Easy to install
Before you start, dialling that number to get somebody to install your brand-new roller blinds, give it a second thought to do it yourself. It’s not that hard. There are a range of videos on the internet to help you with your new project and using only a couple of tools, you’ll have it done in no time, even as little as 10 minutes. Think of the satisfaction you’ll feel closing your roller blinds every night before bed.
While the traditional roller blinds were the plain colours, that camouflaged into the wall, it is now possible to get the same range you could have bought when choosing curtains. No longer will they just fit in the white or beige rooms. They can be put in your children’s rooms where they will match the crazy pink wallpaper you foolishly allowed them to get, and which now gives you headaches. What’s more is they will look a lot sleeker at the same time, so even if they are an outlandish colour, they can still fade into the background so to speak.
Roller blinds are the definition of practicality. Small and sleek, they will sit in your rooms beside the windows happy to go unnoticed. For those with many windows in a room, curtains can sometimes take over as they are bulkier. You won’t have this problem when you have them replaced. They also aren’t as expensive as buying new curtains so that is something else that will make your life a bit easier. Also, as previously mentioned, they don’t care as much dust, which is great for those who suffer from allergies.
