First of all, you must find blinds with adequate slat width. There are three basic sizes – 2 inch, 1 inch and half inch slats. The last option is the most sought-after because it provides a contemporary touch to the home. The one-inch slat blinds are cheaper and the 2-inch slat blinds are ideal for people who want to achieve that classic, traditional appearance in their room.

The next thing that you should take into consideration is the colour of your window blinds. The market is flooded with blinds in different colours. There are many people who choose specific colours of blinds that perfectly match their home interior. However, you should not forget that the blinds usually last longer than your furniture and if you are limited to one specific colour you’ll need to change the window blinds whenever you change the interior. In order to avoid situations like this, you can always opt for neutral colours for your blinds.

Furthermore, window blinds can be lowered and raised in a different way. Some of them go bottom up while others go top down. There is also a combination of these two methods. Each of these options provides different levels of privacy, so depending on your requirements, choose the method that suits you best.

Modern window blinds are made from different materials. The most popular choices are aluminum and wood blinds. The first option is more durable and doesn’t require much maintenance, whereas many people think that wood blinds look more attractive and make the atmosphere inside your home more natural. It really depends on what kind of look you are going for.
