Recently I received many inquiry whether to go for Curtains or BLinds for their homes.
As a general guideline, curtains are commonly installed in Living and Master bedroom as it give a soft touch to the area. Blinds such as Sunscreen/blackout blinds are commonly found in Study room and kitchen area.
In recent years, i see there's growing demand of blinds such as zebra and triple shade blinds ahead of curtains. Users tend to opt for ease of maintenance over aesthetic value of curtains. Design of blinds is also getting more versatile and diverse making it more competitive against curtains.
If you hv difficulty in choosing between both, here's some things you should consider before going for your purchase. .
Blinds are generally more durable than curtains
Blinds are easy to maintained vs curtains
3. Aesthetic value
Curtain trumps blinds in the aspect. Curtains designs are better than blinds,though there's more blinds design coming out in recent years.
BLinds are slight cheaper than curtain. Then again, it depends on what blinds materials you choose too! it can be expensive too. .
5. Place of application
If it's a cooking area, it's best to go for a roller blinds.
Blinds or curtain....what are the rules within the same floor area? Does it look awkward if we mix? For example on the ground floor living room windows, we used blind and then move to dining area sliding door we use curtain and next to the sliding door there's a window and we use blind. Or within a bedroom, one window with blinds and another window of the same bedroom with curtains.
