Curtains or blinds, nets or no nets, there are so many choices when it comes to how you dress your windows. In some rooms you’re a bit limited. For example, in the kitchen you don’t want anything with too much textile because oil will spit and cooking smells will work their way into the fabric. All in all there limits, but still plenty to choice from. If you’re in anyway indecisive it can be a bit of a problem. |
First things first: you need to narrow down your search somewhat. Look at the room before you make any decisions about what you want – there’s not point getting your heart set on something which just won’t work with your room. In a living room you’re going to want something which is both attractive and functional. If the room gets a lot of light, or is facing a road and therefore visible, it’s quite common to choose either blinds or a net curtain in combination with curtains or made to measure roman blinds. This means you will be able to get some privacy, adjust the window dressings to prevent glare, and also use the curtains or made to measure roman blinds to block out street lights and keep your privacy in the evening.
Made to measure roman blinds are an excellent alternative to curtains, and they often feel much more luxurious.
With a curtain you can buy off the shelf designs with relative ease – although the drop or fullness might not be quite what you’re after.
When it comes to roman blinds however, made to measure is the only way to go. These beautiful and full window dressings are of a fixed size, and they are incredibly difficult to adjust to fit.
Made to measure roman blinds are designed and made with supports so that they pleat and fold neatly as they are raised, in order to create an aesthetically pleasing waterfall of fabric. Should you try to hang a blind which has not been made specifically for that purpose, you could end up swamping the window with an excess of material. If the drop is too short you would have to keep the blinds as a purely decorative piece, and leave them open to avoid an unsightly gap between the fabric and the window ledge.
The most cost effective way of getting this unique look is making sure you choose a company who will measure your window for you, to ensure the perfect fit.
