Blinds vs Curtains: Who Wins? Decorating your home can be one of the most time consuming and difficult tasks, especially given the amount of options available in the current day and age. However, when it comes to redecorating your windows can be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of decorating. There is one question you must answer, as it causes an endless debate, are you going for curtains or blinds? Whatever you choose, whatever materials you prefer and whatever you choose, your home will benefit.
Functionality: Both blinds and curtains have the same functionality behind them, which is light control and privacy. Curtains block are known to shut out light, as well as stop those walking by from peering through your home. Curtains add an extra dimension as they are decorative, which can allow you to shine a controlled amount of light and still block out the view from the outside. Whether you choose thick curtains, or lightweight, they can all be adjusted to your needs, but are no longer beneficial once they are wide open. Sheer curtains are normally combined in order to get the benefits once curtains are closed and open.
Designing with Curtains: It’s one thing to mix and match styles of drapes until you feel as though you have a selection that will work more or less OK with a specific room or area—and quite another to make conscious design choices along the way that result in a more cohesive effect.
If you're hanging a curtain rod inside the window frame (typically spring or magnetic rods) measure at the inside point of the window. Again, measure each and every window - you don't want any surprises later!
