Alright, so we’ve heard the “less is more” talk over and over again, be it through minimalism, the Scandinavian or Japanese design way, and while I agree up to a point, I sure don’t agree with this philosophy when applied to windows.
I can think of so many reasons as to why windows require window treatments; One, you can reap the benefits of quality of sleep as long as you provide dark conditions in the room for the “sleep” hormone melatonin to be in full mode so you can get into a state of deep, refreshing sleep. Two, without window coverings to protect your furniture and flooring, the UV rays may force you to do home makeovers more often than not.
Three, window coverings add value to your home. Taking all three into consideration, especially the third, you can’t underestimate the power of blinds, particularly plantation. However, be wary though, to be able to make the most of them, you have to first know how to measure for plantation blinds. Starting off properly with accuracy, a steel tape measurer, or laser measurer come in handy; mind you, measuring from left to right.
Along with getting the skill how to measure for plantation blinds, some shops provide you with information on the step by step process, accompanied by check measure worksheets to record the measurements, and help instructions with the choice of layouts, as well as a detailed manual on how to carry on with the installation, so it doesn’t get easier than that – just what you need to get confident about this as a DIY project. You can also get a sample kit and practice first.
Now then, value! Out of all the blinds options, this is the one that goes with many décor styles, helps with the home’s insulation, and thanks to the ingenious design, cuts down the amount of allergens that other window treatments, like curtains, and blinds made of fabric, are prone to retaining.
Want another reason to be convinced? Plantation blinds are suitable for every room in your home, including the moisture conditions of rooms such as the kitchen, laundry, and the bathroom, thanks to the PVC plantation type, with aluminium core blades, resistant to humidity. For the rest, you can opt for the classy basswood.
Wanting to get the perfect fit for your windows, you can have them custom-made, and once they are installed, you can count on curb appeal – something to think of especially when selling the home.
