Below are a few principles to consider when choosing the optimal fabric for your next window covering project: SheerWeave fabrics reduce glare by 70%-100% based on colour and openness factor, which are the most important features to consider for energy savings and light management.

LIGHT VS. DARK COLOURS

OPENNESS DIFFERENCES

decorating Nursery Windows

Decorating Nursery Windows, Do’s and Dont’s

Decorating a nursery is an incredibly pleasant task, but you need to keep in mind that beauty and safety should come hand in hand for this particular room. Our tips should help you choose the best type of window covers for your little one.

What you should do when decorating nursery windows:

  • Do keep in mind that curtains reduce the width of the window.
 This ‘visual effect’ can be overlooked if the nursery is large, but smaller spaces will look cluttered with curtains.  Blinds will be the best choice in this case.
  • Do enhance the window design with a valance.
 A window valance or cornice box can dramatically change the look of the blinds. Installing this piece will allow you to make the interior design as a whole ‘warmer’ and more attractive, without the limitations posed by curtains.

Installation.

  • Do install curtains/shades last.
With the décor completed, it will be easier for you to choose the type of window cover that matches your existing design best. You can use this time studying the dozens of options available so that you can be sure that you really pick the best one.
  • Do double-check whether the window treatments are installed correctly.
 Check everything and test every joint, string, and bolt. Pull on the curtains a little harder than necessary as kids do this quite often and you need to be sure that the hangers are secured properly.

decorating Nursery Windows

What you shouldn’t do when decorating nursery windows:

  • Don’t use tension rods.
 Children are prone to pulling on everything within their sight, and over-pulling a spring-loaded tension rod can give the little one a nasty bump on the head or worse.
  • Don’t install floor-length curtains.
 They pose a health hazard for a child and can often serve as a hanky for the youngest ones. The rule of thumb for nursery window treatments is to ensure that the curtains/blinds and any of their elements remain safely out of a toddler’s reach.
  • Don’t go too light on the blinds.
 It’s imperative to keep the nursery pleasantly cool during the day, especially for afternoon naps. Achieved by installing the right kind of blinds, for example blockout Roman or Venetian options.
  • Don’t forget to install breakaway cords.
 If you choose blinds for your nursery, replace regular cords with a special breakaway variety. This is essential for childproofing the room as cords are the most dangerous part of this system for a toddler. If pulled, these cords break rather easily, so the risk to the little one is minimal. This issue is easy to repair, so your blinds can be up to maximum efficiency within hours.

Best Blinds Options for Rental Properties

Blinds and window coverings are used every day and yet many investors find them one of the most regrettable expenses, What are the best blinds?

What are investors looking for in a window covering?

  • Value for money
  • Low maintenance
  • Safe
  • A timeless look

Value for money

best-blinds

Our first instinct it to buy the cheapest when it comes to blinds for rental properties.

Just something off the shelf at Bunnings or Spotlight. Doesn’t matter if it doesn’t fit perfectly, “it’s only a rental!”

But buying off the shelf window treatments have a lot of components and brackets which can break in a short amount of time. Most get used every single day, and these “quick fixes” often don’t sell replacement components, so once its broken and cannot be used every day, the blind then needs to be replaced.

Remember if you buy quality in the first instance, you’ll get longevity and save money down the track!

Low maintenance

The lowest maintenance blinds for rental properties are:

Roller Blinds

  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to use
  • Wide range of colours that fit all interior looks
  • Components available for easy fix
  • Good insulation
  • Can span wide width
  • Affordable

best-blinds

 

Vertical blinds

  • Using a wand control eliminates the need for child safety cords and locks
  • Wide range of colours that fit all interior looks
  • Components available for easy fix
  • Blades can be replaced or updated if track is still working
  • Can span wide width
  • Affordable

For safety, remember that the biggest risk that blinds cause is a choking hazard to children and animals so;

– Make sure roller cords have safety locks installed so they cannot hook around a child’s neck

– Remove all chains from the bottom of vertical. Choose sewn in or slip in bottom weights for vertical blinds instead

– Choose blinds that can be operated by wands, or motorised for a more luxurious property (motorisation might achieve a higher rent for you too!).

Maintaining a timeless look

Most blinds are refreshed every 8 years, and often when a new coat of paint is applied. Apart from the walls in the house, the window treatments span the next biggest space and make the biggest impact to the look of the property, both inside and out, so;

– Colours that are neutral and timeless – greys, creams, off-whites

– Low maintenance fabrics/material that can easily be wiped down or cleaned to maintain their fresh look

– Correctly fitted blinds for the window with no gaps or overhanging

– The right design of blind for a high traffic window. For example, a sliding door

– Block-out blinds for sleeping areas

What do tenants want when it comes to window coverings?

We should probably note what tenants prefer! No surprises here, roman or roller blinds are the most preferred window coverings for tenants.

What are the main considerations for tenants?

  • Function – does it provide privacy in sleeping, dressing and bathing areas, block the sun, retain the warmth/cool within the house or all of the above?

Sliding Panel Blinds , demanded and popular

Let’s face it, windows are a bit bland without curtains and blinds. Everyone can see in and even if you do have window furnishings. It can take a considerable amount of energy to raise and lower them. Each time you want privacy or to see the view.

If you have large rooms with big windows this time can quickly multiply and if you’re complacent, you’ll soon get used to keeping the blinds closed or open almost persistently. What a drag when it’s possible to automate blinds and curtains to go up or down at the touch of a button!

Remote-Controlled Shade

Remote-controlled window coverings have all the same benefits as traditional blinds and curtains, plus the added ease and convenience of being able to open or close them all instantaneously with the push of a button. It no longer takes a long time or substitutes for arm day at the gym. They are available for both homes and businesses.

Sensor-Controlled Shade

When you’re in the office, it can be tough to continuously adjust the blinds to stop the sunlight getting in your eyes. By adding sun, temperature or wind sensors to your blinds, they will automatically open, close or adjust to keep you comfortable all day long.

These sensors are the perfect solution to office woes where nobody knows quite who is responsible for these decisions either. Better yet, they will adjust with precision, creating unity throughout the building.

  • Roman blinds – They are roller blinds with multiple segmentation, it can be crimped to the desired level.
  • Vertical blinds – In the most popular blinds of the 90’s. The slats are wider and placed vertically, and are connected to tracks that lie above and below the blinds. This type enables adjustment of the width of the blinds to suit the windows.

What are blinds made up of?

Window blinds are made up of a variety of materials, depending on their pricing. Aluminium, polyester or PVC is the material of choice in cheaper blinds, as they have a good durability. Plastic, fibre, wood, pinoleum, fabric, etc. are also used to make blinds. Weather proofing is a feature that is seen in costlier blinds, where constant exposure to the natural elements does not affect the wear and tear of the blinds.
