Blinds and Shades to Complement Your Interior Decor

Are you looking to choose the right shades for your home but don’t know how? If so, this is just the article for you.  During any home renovation, especially when designing the interior, one of the biggest problems is choosing the right covers for your windows.

Curtains are typically the classic first choice, which are best for apartments or houses, and are great for conservative space decoration.  However, classic curtains simply do not fit into modern homes or business premises. Venetian blinds, vertical blinds, and roller shades are excellent choices for modern indoor spaces.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are a symbol of modern and new. They are a very elegant solution for modern residential or commercial spaces. Unlike classic curtains or roller shades, they are either made from a special kind of plastic, aluminum, or fine wood. Therefore, their life span is much longer. In addition, maintaining this type of blinds is very easy because all you need to keep them clean is a damp cloth for dusting.

Besides being easier to maintain compared to conventional curtains, they are gradually becoming a “must have” in modern indoor spaces. Modern designed apartments are often difficult to imagine without the Venetian blinds in places where curtains were previously. Venetian blinds are also practical because of the possibility to adjust how much external light you want into your home.

They also come in different colors and sizes, so you do not have to worry about fitting them in with your interior decor.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are an elegant solution for every home or office space. They come in several different colors to easily fit into any existing décor or atmosphere.  These blinds consist of a series of vertical strips of equal length which may, if necessary, gather or disseminate in order to let more or less light inside. Vertical blinds are increasingly popular because of their elegance that enhances the appearance of modern apartments and offices.

Fabric Shades

Shades are similar to external shutters, but they are installed inside the room and they are not made of wood or aluminum as classic shutters, but of hard fabrics. Fabric shades are a practical choice for rooms where you need to, almost completely, prevent the entry of all external light.

Right Color

The first thing you have to do is determine exactly what you want to highlight in the room.  After doing this, select the corresponding color for your window covers. The color of the blinds is very important and it must be in accordance with the color of the furniture in the room that it is intended for; whether it is a bedroom, living room, or nursery. The best way to choose the right cover for your windows is to check for wholesale blinds online before buying, there you can see what is offered, which should help you more with your choice.


The length of the blinds is just as important as the color. Slightly longer blinds will visually lengthen your windows and make the room look higher (and those that reach to the floor will make the room look more elegant and classical). Short blinds or shades make the room look more modern and informal.

Be sure that quality and modern blinds will make your space look much nicer, which will have a positive effect on your mood and the quality of your life.
