One thing you may be asking yourself, however, is whether you want to adorn your windows with blinds or curtains. Here are some factors to consider when making this decision:

Cleaning – When it comes to cleaning, curtains are certainly more low-maintenance than blinds, as you only need to wash them every few months. Blinds collect dirt easily, and should be dusted weekly. It’s also worth noting that for people with allergies, the amount of dust that blinds can collect may be reason enough to opt for curtains, instead.

Decor – You want your window treatments to fit in with the overall vibe of the room you’re decorating. If you have tall ceilings and vintage furniture, some long draperies can really complement the overall decor. Smaller houses, on the other hand, may look better with blinds, which take up less space and keep the attention on other parts of the room.

Function – Blinds make it incredibly easy for you to control the amount of light that comes into your home – and are great for those who like to have lots of privacy. There are different kinds of curtains ranging from sheer to heavy, though, so if you choose to go with that option, you still have a say in the amount of natural light and privacy that you enjoy.
