Blinds Or Curtains: Which One To Buy For My Bedroom This Summer?

There are many different types of blinds you can choose from to decorate your bedroom windows. Indoor blinds such as roller blinds, vertical blinds and roman blinds are good basic options. 

But why choose blinds over curtains? Let’s take a look at the benefits of blinds in more detail. 

Blinds

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds can come in both sheer and blockout options. Sheer blinds allow light to be filtered and intensity reduced, however, blockout blinds can eliminate 99% of the light and heat. This means they will keep the room much cooler. 

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are cheaper than other blind options. They are easy to open and close, however do not generally keep out too much light or heat. 

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are great bedroom options. Their thick fabric make-up means they protect from considerable amounts of heat and light. What makes them better is that they can be customised to suit any decorative scheme. 

Why Blinds Over Curtains in Summer?

Curtains can still reduce light and aid in preventing some heat from coming into a room, however, they require significant amounts of layers to be effective. If layers are not used, then thick expensive fabrics are required. Additionally, they need to be removed and washed regularly. 

On the other hand, blinds are made of a PVC blend that does not require much to maintain. This also contributes to their ability to reflect heat and block out light. These ensure maximum temperature control through the use of blinds rather than curtains.
