If you use curtains as window coverings and suffer from allergy or asthma, you should consider replacing them with blinds. In fact, blinds have many advantages over curtains such as:
Dust, dander and other debris become trapped in the fibers of curtains. However, the blinds that you can find at any blind store Edmonton contain no fibers that could hold on debris that can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms.
Ease of Maintenance
Window blinds are fairly easy to maintain and generally only require wiping them with a damp cloth every once in a while to get rid of any dust that has built up. Blinds are also generally long lasting if you care for them properly.
Blinds actually provide a level of privacy that cannot be achieved with curtains. If you want even more privacy control, install top down window shades Edmonton. These types of window coverings allow you to lower them from the top to let natural light into your home without giving up privacy.
Available in a Wide Array of Materials
Blinds are made using a wide array of materials, which allows you to find the perfect match for your home. For example, wooden blinds will complement your wood furniture perfectly. If, however, wooden blinds are more expensive than you can afford, there are faux wood blinds that look like real wood but are made from plastic and cost a lot less. Other options include bamboo, plastic, aluminum and various other materials.
Control the Light
Blinds give you complete control over how much natural light is entering the room. They allow you to cover the entire window or just a portion of it so. They also allow you to open or close the slats when you want to fill the room with natural light or block it all out for complete darkness.
