Getting The Most Out Of Your Room With Wooden Vertical Blinds

You don’t have to perform a complete overhaul to turn your home into a space that will impress others. In fact, it is often the smaller, subtle changes that can turn your pride and joy into a place that not only you enjoy, but others too. Small tweaks to the accessories in a room can really transform the feel of it without breaking the bank, and window treatments are a great place to start here.

Window treatments are often neglected and rarely receive as much due care and attention as they deserve. Many people often believe that they are simply a staple fixture in any room, and that changing them or choosing them carefully won’t have too much of an impact on the overall feel of the room. This couldn’t be more wrong. The right or wrong decision in this area can actually have a massive impact on the entire décor scheme in a room and therefore should be considered carefully.

Whilst they aren’t the only thing to consider in a room, it’s important to consider their impact alongside that of the wallpaper or the colour you paint a wall. If the curtains or blinds don’t match these or at least fit in with them, then your room will look particularly unbalanced and may contrast too much.

One option when it comes to decorating your window treatments is that of wooden vertical blinds. Wood is often seen to have more of a contemporary quality in this day and age, and can really add a more natural feel to a room. They can also be seen as timeless by some people, as many curtains and blinds will use fabric which, like many other patterned items, can quickly fall in and out of fashion. Wooden vertical blinds however, simply do not suffer from this.

There are many different types of wood that can be used to create these window treatments, and all offer a contemporary look that will stand the test of time. The choice of wood can be based on a number of factors, including existing furniture, and many other furnishings and colour schemes around the home. The decision really is your own and there is no right or wrong way to do it. However, here are a few tips to help you decide which wood is best for your vertical blinds.

Lighter woods are a particularly popular choice for many people. This is because they allow the homeowner to create a particularly bright and welcoming atmosphere for those entering the room. Pine in particular is an often-used light wood in many homes.

On the other hand, those lucky enough to have the dilemma of a room being too big may decide upon darker woods to help combat this. Homeowners and visitors may find certain rooms to large and unwieldy and therefore may struggle to relax in such an atmosphere. One way to reverse this feeling is to combine darker vertical blinds with a similarly darker colour scheme throughout the room. This (maybe with the addition of a warm, glowing fire on those cold, winter days) will help convert what was a large, airy room into a cosy, warm atmosphere where people will feel as snug as possible.

If you have a good level of attention to detail, you could simply ignore this and combine the blinds and their colour schemes with those that already exist in the room. This can allow you to create a perfectly rounded look for your room which wouldn’t look out of place in an interior design magazine.

What it all boils down to is the fact that paying due care and attention to window treatments, decorative cushions and other small accessories can have a huge impact on any room. They make a more subtle statement than large pieces of furniture or feature do, but allow you to demonstrate your own personal style and add some flair to your home.
