Almost everyone wants to dress up their windows, but not everyone wants the hassle that curtains and drapes cause. Typically, curtains/drapes must be either washed or dry cleaned and this means taking them down and putting them back on the rods and replacing the rods. That’s a lot of work just to play dress up with your windows. There’s an easier way to cover those bare windows that won’t cause nearly as much hassle. Window blinds offer less hassle, better privacy, more energy savings and conservation as well as a way to truly dress up the windows in every room in your home.
Blinds are much easier to clean than curtains and unlike curtains do not mildew when exposed to moisture in areas such as a bathroom. Often a quick dust is all they will need to look new again. Aluminum, faux wood, and wood are popular choices. The aluminum type is coated and will work well in the bathroom and kitchen. They come in a variety of sizes from small bathroom windows to larger windows like a patio door.
