Proper Lighting with Custom Made Window Blinds

Home Improvement,Interior Design,Advice
Do Custom Made Blinds Pay Off?

Although modern window treatments offer much more protection and other important benefits, they also involve much more costs related to their manufacturing, installation and overall maintenance. This is why it does not come as a surprise that we often invest a lot of time trying to choose the best window treatment for our home. We consider their functionality, price, design and much more. Although the market of window coverings has never been broader, there is still a chance that we will not be able to find exactly what we are looking for. Aware of this fact, manufacturers often provide custom made window blinds that can be made to meet each requirement and expectation of a potential buyer. Although these blinds are probably the safest option since you cannot go wrong if you have the blinds made to your exact measurements and requirements, they usually cost much more than the one ready-made and ordered from a catalogue, for example. Not to mention the fact that you usually have to wait more for them to be delivered to your home. So the question arises – do custom made blinds really pay off?

First of all, let’s consider which parameters you can determine yourself when purchasing these blinds:

- you can precisely determine their dimensions, that is their width and length. This is very important since you do not want to end up with blinds that are too ling or short, which will require for them to be resized, since you are otherwise risking their functionality in the words of light and privacy control; - you can freely choose the color you want. Basically, manufacturers usually offer only a limited color selection, but also offer the possibility of choosing any other color, at a certain price, of course; - you can choose the material that is its transparency, thickness, certain additional features like moisture and fire resistance etc.

Now, if you can find everything you want in ready-made window blinds then there is no need to even consider purchasing custom made ones. But if not, believe it or not, having custom made blinds can save you a lot of money and time later on, in the words of blind’s functionality and effectiveness, including the optimal light control. We’ll try to explain why.

Why Is Proper Lightening so Important

Believe it or not, proper lightening plays a very important role in our every day life. First of all, it can affect our health in more than one way. We are all aware of the fact that a sunny day can really improve our mood, just like a breath of fresh air can wake us up and raise our concentration. Well, proper window blinds can help us with that. If adequately chosen, they will allow us to control the amount of natural light getting in the room. There is also another advantage deriving from this fact. If our window treatments allow us to use as much natural lighting as possible, then we will have our lights on less, all leading to considerable energy savings and lower electricity bills. This also goes for our cooling bills during the summer. Namely, the window glass has the effect of a magnifying glass, meaning that the sunrays coming through the window will additionally heat up the space, regardless of the outer temperature, which can be useful during winter, but should be avoided in the summer.

Another way we can save some money is by using custom made window blinds that will offer protection from harming UV rays which will damage our furniture and flooring, making it fade and deteriorate much faster. Well, your window treatments can prevent this from happening.

Finally, let’s try to connect proper lighting with custom made window blinds. If you have read the first section carefully then you have understood what can you get if you opt for blinds especially tailored to your needs. Firstly, getting the blinds that will fit your windows to the mm is very important for optimal light control, since you have minimized the risk of getting blinds that are shorter than your window and thus will not provide the protection you need. This also goes for the color of the blinds. You will note that lighter shades tend to diffuse more light, while darker ones radiate more heat. By choosing the optimal shade of your blinds, you will be able to adjust the level of light within your room. This also goes for the material’s characteristics, since transparent materials let more light in while blackout ones have the ability to darken the room completely and thus offer more protection from the sun and heat.
