What to take into consideration before choosing the shutter for bedroom
The color of the shade should follow the decorating palette of the room, usually a light shade like white or beige. In rooms with a more modern proposal or even rooms for children and teenagers, the blind can come in a more vivid color and highlighted in the environment.
A very common question is about the size that the blind should have in relation to the window and the wall. If the shutter is installed in the window frame, it must be exactly the size of the window frame. On the contrary, it is recommended that the blind have a size of 10 to 20 centimeters on the sides and at the top and bottom of the window.
But to make the environment more elegant, it is suggested that the blind go down to the floor, especially in double rooms. In rooms for children and teenagers, the blind can be short, respecting the limits mentioned above.
It is possible to buy blinds ready to install, as well as it is possible to make customized, in this case, the options of colors, materials and formats are even greater.
The blinds are manufactured in different types of materials. The most common and used are PVC, aluminum, wood, bamboo, solar screen and fabric. What most interferes in the choice of material is the functional and aesthetic proposal of the blind. For example, PVC and aluminum blinds are best suited for people suffering from allergy and renite problems, while solar screens are great for totally blocking the passage of light.
Price is also a determining factor. Aluminum and PVC are the cheapest, while wood has a higher marketing cost.
4. Cleaning and maintenance
The cleaning of the shutter is very simple, especially the ones of PVC and aluminum. The recommendation is to run a duster once a week to remove dust and once a month vacuum cleaner. Blinds of this type can be cleaned with a soft sponge slightly moistened with mild soap and water.
Fabric blinds can be cleaned weekly with a vacuum cleaner or mop. But it is recommended to wash with a specialized company at least once a year to ensure complete cleaning, as this type of material tends to accumulate more dirt.
5. Health first
Fabric curtains are a problem for people suffering from allergic rhinitis and other respiratory problems. And the shutter ends up being the solution for the environment, since they do not accumulate so much dust and mites.
If this is the main reason to use blind, then prefer PVC or aluminum and dispense fabric
