When shopping for window blinds, it's not just about style, quality and price. One variable that many consumers forget to consider is physical location.
"My recommendations for types of window shades definitely changes depending upon where the window covering is going to be installed. I never recommend one product to be placed throughout the entire home or office. For example, there are factors that need to be taken into consideration when placing a blind in a moisture prone area like the kitchen and the bathroom that just aren't necessary when considering a bedroom," says Ron Manwaring of Blinds Chalet.
Blinds Chalet Window Shade Location Recommendations:
1. For the bathroom, kitchen or other high moisture area, opt for faux wood blinds. Doing so will avoid water damage to the blind slats that would inevitably occur if real wood blinds were installed in an area where moisture could collect. Faux wood blinds, often made of a composite of man-made materials combined with wood particles, are easy to clean and unaffected by humidity and come in a wide range of colors and textures.
2. For the master bedroom, we suggest blackout shades which in many cases are just a liner added to a honeycomb shade, a roman shade or a bamboo blind, etc.
3. For children's bedrooms consumers should always use a cordless shade (look for blackout shades with cordless options). A blackout cordless shade will ensure that the two main variables for bedrooms are covered: privacy and light control.
4. For theatre rooms choose a blackout cell shade. Light control is vital in a theatre room and any quality blackout shade will offer an effective solution to even the most difficult light issues. For sound control, look at noise reduction shades.
5. For great rooms, your options for window covering applications expand. Your considerations in this instance should be sunlight, privacy and energy efficiency. For example, soft sheer shades allow filtered light in yet offer total privacy or a solar screen shade offers temperature and draft control without blocking your view. Other window shade options that will work in this setting are horizontal fabric shades, roman shades, real wood blinds, faux wood blinds, and bamboo shades.
