Often dismissed as a necessary expense for builders and immediately discarded upon moving into a new home, window blinds often get a bad rap as an unattractive, cheaply made default window covering. But the right blinds are a smart investment. Strickland’s Blinds, Shades & Shutters explains why you might want to consider investing in the best blinds money can buy.
Functionally, blinds are one of the most versatile window treatments available. They can be easily customized to fit windows of all shapes and sizes, offering privacy and lighting control. Additionally, blinds can be cordless, motorized and/or battery-operated, making lighting and privacy control in your home as easy as the touch of a button.
When it comes to finding a good base for window covering design, once again, blinds are a go-to option. A sleek, simple, well designed blind can either stand on its own for a minimalist, modern effect, or provide a base for layering many other styles of window covering, such as curtains, shutters, or valances. Think of blinds like a foundation for your windows; they serve as a strong, structural element that can remain intact no matter how many times you remodel or redecorate.
From a cost perspective, blinds can keep your money in your wallet longer than any other window covering. Quality blinds have an insulating effect, drastically lowering the amount of heating or cooling that escapes your home through the windows, an important consideration with energy costs on the rise. Blinds are also a solid choice for anyone who has invested heavily in interior decor, furniture, or rugs. By limiting ultraviolet exposure, window blinds prolong the life of your upholstery and carpets, preventing fading and other wear.
Looking to invest in a window covering, but not sure where your style will take you, or what options are the best ones for you? A set of quality custom blinds is the perfect investment for the new homeowner, or anyone looking for a timeless window covering that will evolve with his or her personal style. When chosen wisely (with the help of one of our experts), window blinds can continue to earn their worth, year after year.
