Many of you probably dream of having a big house. With a big house, you can do a lot of things. You can put beautiful furniture and appliances. You can have many decorative jars or display cabinets. You can even put plants in it. But you must remember that even small houses can look great. The beauty of a home is not always dependent on its size. How you design it is what will spell the difference.
Thus what you must do is to exert effort to design your house well. Aside from choosing good furniture and appliances, a good way to make a home look beautiful is to put high-quality window treatments. It is important that windows are covered beautifully to enhance whatever home decors you have.
Many people choose wooden vertical blinds to put in their windows because of the many benefits they give. First, wooden blinds provide an elegant look. The natural look it has gives a certain kind of charm that you cannot find in other blinds like faux blinds or bamboo window blinds and certainly shutter blinds.
Wooden blinds come in different colours depending on the type of wood used. Wood also comes with attractive grains and texture so they can make blinds look artistic. These variations in textures add character to the blinds.
Wooden blinds are also easy to match with any interior design you prefer. You can use them if you want a country look. They certainly fit old models. Even modern designs can make good use of wooden blinds especially if you choose wood in dark colour.
In general, wooden vertical blinds look better in full wide windows than in tall windows. They are also ideal for French windows or large patio doors. Sliding kitchen doors are also best fitted with vertical blinds of this kind.
Vertical blinds made of wood give maximum protection against the elements. When properly closed, you can completely prevent the sunshine from getting in. During winter they also provide enough insulation.
This type of blinds is also easy to clean. It is coated with a sealer, so they naturally repel dust. But if they do catch dust, you just need to wipe each vane with a cotton cloth to clean them. You can also use a portable vacuum cleaner. For hard to remove dirt, you can use a damp cloth.
However, try as much as you can to prevent the vanes from getting moist always, so they will not lose their shininess. Because wooden blinds are easy to clean, they are ideal for windows and doors in high traffic rooms like the living room or kitchen. They are also preferred in rooms of children with asthma since dust does not accumulate unlike in blinds made of fabric or woven bamboo sticks.
Wooden vertical blinds are also easy to operate. You can open and close it using either a wand or cord. Many prefer rods to cords because they say they are durable.
Whether you have a large or a small house, you can make it look good with careful interior designing. And do not forget to use the right kind of window treatment for it to last.
