Blinds or Curtains? Which Window Covering Option is the Best for Your Home?

Although blinds and curtains attempt to do the same job, they both offer unique benefits to a house, and that is why most homeowners have both of these window covering options in their home. In our latest blog post, we break down the benefits of window blinds and curtains and offer some guidance as to which option is best for your home.


As mentioned in our previous blog posts, window blinds allow homeowners to dictate how much light enters their home. This function gives homeowners complete control over the mood and ambience of a particular room, and this can be altered depending on the weather or the season.

There is also a variety of different window blind options that not only give homeowners control of how much light enters a room, but it also allows them to control how that room looks and feels. Whether it is roller blinds, Venetian blinds, roman blinds or roller blinds, there are a number of different aesthetics available to homeowners, allowing them to stamp their mark down on their room and home.

Window blinds are the perfect window covering option if you are looking to have complete control over the way your home looks, all while being able to shut out the light completely or allow it to seep into your home during the summer months.


Although curtains may not be manipulated as much as window blinds, they do still allow you to control how much light enters your room. Unlike window blinds, however, curtains are very much designed to shut out the light, and this is what makes them perfect for a bedroom. By draping down to the floor, the typically thick materials block out any light as well as locking in the heat in a room during the colder nights.

Despite there being a number of different variations to window blinds, curtains are often more decorative and have more of an intimate and personal feel to them. Typically, curtains can be brought to match the theme or colour scheme of a room, making curtains much more of a feature to a room. It is for these reasons why curtains are considered more furniture than window covering option.
