Blinds can be a great addition in any home, there are many different styles and choices out there available in any price range. But what are the steps needed to clean them?
As we all know, there are many different styles of blinds out there; of the many choices vinyl, aluminum, and wood are the three most popular. I have talked a little about vinyl and aluminum, today I will cover wood blinds. There are two main reasons to get wood blinds vs the other styles; looks and insulation function.
If you have small children or pets and you want to have shades in your house, cordless treatments are a better option because exposed cords pose a strangulation risk. In cordless shades, the cords are hidden within the fabric, and the fabric is all one piece so that there are no strings anywhere to pull on. The shade can be moved up or down either with a wand, a remote, or simply by pushing them up and down. They are much safer for kids, and give you peace of mind.
So a couple of posts ago I talked about the importance of blackout curtains in a bedroom to filter out light. But of course, light can still come in through the gap in the curtains, so to REALLY filter out the most light, you have to consider blinds.
In my last post, I talked about blackout curtains, and how my son needed them when he was small. I wanted to share with you today the poem that preceeded my purchase of those curtains.
When my son was born, the bedroom we put him in must be east facing, because the sun would just pour into his room early in the day and increase in brightness throughout the day. At that time, we did not have any blinds or curtains in his room, a problem we needed to rectify promptly if there was to be any hope that he would nap. I started to look into curtains to start with, and found many different varieties, from sheer to ridiculously thick, many choices, options and prices that ranged from very cheap to super expensive.
