Combining Blinds

There is no hard and fast rule about coving our windows. So if we find a combination of coverings that work together, like curtains and blinds, then we are free to do this.

A blind and curtain combination adds some presence to some window decors. The trick is to get the right match of fabrics or material. This might mean very light translucent curtains with heavier fabric blinds. Cream or off-white can look good with light curtain fabric. Alternatively, dark blinds in brown or even black might look good against pastel white curtains.

Of course, the main advantage of combining blinds and curtains is the functionality. The curtain will allow privacy during the daytime whilst till letting sunshine into the room. Or we can have all the light blocked out when we close the vertical blinds. The blinds can certainly remove the glare that inevitably comes at some part of the day.

We might choose to have the vertical blinds next to the window, and have heavy curtain facing the room, covering the blinds. This would mean that the curtain décor would be more dominant and set the interior look. Make sure the curtains can be drawn back to show the blinds.

Vertical blinds will inevitably have vertical lines. The curtains need to work with this. Plain curtains shouldn’t clash with the vertical lines. Nor will more vertical lines on the curtains, though this will look rather monotonous. Bold floral print curtains can look good against plain blinds. The only real issue is when the blinds and curtains are both too bold.

We have installed vertical blinds Sydney wide. These blinds have all the advantages of conventional blinds but remain easier to clean. And they combine well with light or heavy curtains. Be creative with the elements inside you home. And remember, you can always buy the blinds now and add curtains when you budget allows.
