If you have been contemplating changing your window furnishings from regular old curtains to something more visually stimulating, you could be considering investing in window blinds. These treatments have seen a steady rise in popularity among Australians, as they are not only aesthetically appealing but also much easier to maintain than curtains. Moreover, blinds come in such a wide selection of designs that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to customising your home according to its individual personality.
However, when deciding on what will be an ideal fit for your house, you also need to factor in the spacing of your windows. Windows that are positioned too close together will require unique blinds that work well in tight spaces. Here are some styles of blinds that you could consider for windows that are spaced quite close to each other.
Plantation style blinds
Plantation shutters have an edge among most other types of binds as they have the innate ability to prove your house with visual appeal both indoors as well as outdoors. The louvres of these blinds are smaller than other types of blinds making them suited for all window sizes, large and small. Moreover, the narrowness of the louvres also makes them ideal for mounting close together, as they will not stand out conspicuously. Plantation style blinds may be a common feature on kitchen windows, but they can easily be integrated into bedrooms, bathrooms and even your living room.
Matchstick style blinds
In some houses, you will find that the windows are not closely spaced together. Instead, there is barely any discernible gap between them! If you still want each window to have its own treatment, then matchstick blinds will be the most suitable solution. These micro blinds are typically custom made to ensure they correctly fit your windows' specifications.
Micro style blinds
As per their name, these types of blinds comprise thin louvres. They are most suited for floor-to-ceiling windows that have minimal space in between them, as the blinds will accentuate their length of these openings. When choosing micro blinds, it is best to select materials such as aluminium. Porous materials such as timber can prove to become a headache after a while because maintaining the louvres will be a tough task considering how numerous they are. Aluminium, on the other hand, does not absorb dust so a simple wipe down will keep your micro blinds pristine. As a bonus tip, choose micro blinds in a contrasting colour to your interior décor theme so that your windows create a stark visual element in your space.Share
