Blinds can add colour to your world

by:  Cheapa-Blinds

Modern interior design has matured not only in the raw materials it now uses to create the taste and style of the 21st Century, but also in the use of colour in and around our homes and businesses.

We have gone from the orange and greens of the 60’s & 70’s through to the disasters of the 80’s and 90’s where we couldn’t decide between wood, laminate, plastic or glass.

Colour is now allowing us to express ourselves within our homes and businesses in a way that we have never been able to before, allowing us to make dramatic and stylish transformations.

Generation Y introduced us to the statement ‘Based on what? …..’ Their questioning of why we do what we do.

Lounge rooms always had wooden furniture, floral arm chairs and small white Venetian blinds behind curtains.  That was how it was …. Based on what? ….

Nurseries had to have white or pastel walls and curtains …. Based on what?

As we have become more educated and confident in our approach to life, and thanks to the internet exposing us to other views, we are now more adventurous and experimental in our approach to many things in life – not the least of which is interior design.

The answer to Based on What for the 21st century is based on personal taste, availability of information and product.  It is a desire to be different from our predecessors who were safe and limited in their outlook.

Blinds and window furnishings have certainly come a long way in the last 20 years and certainly the styles; colour and fabric choices of today far surpass those of the 60’s and 70’s.

Splashes of colour and style can be so easily be achieved with window furnishings.  From wooden blinds and shutters through to over 20 different colours in verticals, roman blinds and venetians, the possibilities are endless and extremely exciting.

Just think about it; Alabaster, Apricot, Ash Blue, Brandy Rose, Beige, Cedar, Coco, Caramel, Charcoal, Chino, Evergreen, Fern, Latte, Mocca, Parmesan, Peach, Royal Blue, Rust, Sage, Slate, Spearmint, Taupe, Teak, Terracotta, Wedgewood …. The colour choices offered by Cheapa-Blinds will amaze you.

You need to consider your blinds to be just as much a feature of your room as any piece of artwork or centre piece.  This means when you are considering spotlighting, also consider a feature window with beautiful window furnishings and make it a lighting feature of the room.  Blinds can look quite interesting turned into feature blinds with casual but direct lighting. When the blinds are lit up by spot lights, the colours glow even more.  Remember, they are not only practical, they are beautiful.

Interior Designers will tell you that one of the most cost effective ways to transform a room is with colour.  Colour in the walls, colour in the furnishings and colour in your blinds.  Selected to complement each other and bring out the best in the room, you can go from dull and drab to stylish and exciting for a relatively small investment.

So whether it is to spruce up your home for sale, do your own renovation make over, or just to give yourself and your room/s a touch of spring freshness, think about the life and energy that your coloured blinds can bring into your life.  You will thank yourself (and Cheapa-Blinds) for taking that first step; for many years to come.
