A lot more people are choosing to have blinds in homes and offices rather than the traditional curtains. Blinds can be very practical, especially as they do not cover the radiators in your home or office as curtains tend to do. They are also a lot easier to keep clean, which means there is not as much dust building up in your home. This can have benefits for both you and your family, and will also make the chore of cleaning them, a lot easier. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth or a feather duster, and your blinds can be free of dust, in no time at all!

There are many different styles of blinds available, which also come in a range of different styles and colours.

  • Venetian Blinds
  • Vertical Blinds
  • Roller Blinds
  • Roman Blinds
  • Panel Blinds

This means that there is a lot of choice when it comes to choosing a new set of blinds for your home or office. They can also be made from a variety of different materials, which can complement the decor of the window, and room, in question.

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Fabric

Wood, metal and plastic blinds are the easiest to keep clean as fabric blinds will still need to be taken down and soaked in detergent every now and then in order to keep them clean and pristine.

As well as having a variety of different styles and colours of blinds, it is also possible to get blinds which are custom made. This is extremely good if you have non-standard sized windows and doors in your home or office. It is also possible to get digitally printed photo blinds, which means you do not have to stick to one single colour or boring pattern that is usually available. Many places will offer a wide range of different images, which you can have printed on to a set of blind to customize it and match it perfectly for the window it is going to be used for.

As well as having a large collection of images that you can choose to have printed, you can also supply your own image to have printed digitally on your photo blinds. This means you can have your child’s favourite cartoon character to sports team printed, or why not a family picture? This is also excellent news for businesses as they can supply their logo and artwork, and have their company advertised using their windows. This can be much cheaper than having a sign writer produce a sign for you.

With digitalprinting, the possibilities really are endless. Imagine your child waking up in their room to a picture of their favourite pet or animal covering their window. It really is very easy to customize your room with printed photo blinds, and the cost is not that much more than a standard stock item. If you are looking to add a spark to your home, then think about digital printed blinds which are very practical, and can fit your decor perfectly to your own unique taste.
