Recently, my parents decided to purchase wooden blinds for their home and, when I came to visit, I could not believe how beautiful they looked. I learned from my parents that upgrading blinds can do much more than just shade rooms. In fact, they can help you save money and conserve energy. I love Venetian wooden blinds because they are not only pretty and modern, but they offer insulation. This helps shield rooms from sunlight, keeping electricity costs down. It can also keep out cold air during the winter, so you use less heat. If you are eco-conscious like we are, this also helps you conserve energy.
Another great thing about choosing blinds is that they can completely change the look of a room or home. My parents' bedroom actually looked bigger and more balanced. In addition, they were able to color coordinate the blinds with the rest of the room, so everything matched and looked gorgeous. For our own home, we chose white treated wooden blinds, though we purchased special blackout blinds for Liam's room to create a darker atmosphere so he could sleep more easily.
Who knew there were so many uses of window blinds? We love our new blinds and couldn't be happier! What kind of blinds do you have in your home?
