If you have been considering updating your home decor then you will probably be wondering if there is any way to improve the curtains which frame your windows. When curtains are first hung in your room they will match perfectly with your furniture and fittings but in most cases, it doesn't take long for the appeal to wear off. After a while, even the most luxurious of curtains will start to pick up dust and dirt from their surroundings. Unlike a carpet that can be easily cleaned if it becomes dirty or stained, curtains are only rarely cleaned since they need to be removed from the rail and have all of their hooks removed before they can be professionally cleaned.

Is there any alternative?

In many cases, curtains are still a good option for your room but there is an alternative that comes with many advantages and few of the disadvantages of curtains. An increasing number of homeowners are discovering the benefits of having a Venetian blinds installation in their home. What a lot of people don't realise is that Venetian blinds installations can be incredibly varied. When you work with a Venetian blinds installation company you will be able to choose from a range of designs and styles to ensure that there is a perfect match for the inside of your home. If the attractive appearance of the blinds isn't enough to convince you to consider a Venetian blinds installation here is two more reasons to make the switch.

Better light control

Letting the right amount of light into any room is essential. If the room is too bright it will be unpleasant squinting through the glare and the direct sunlight could cause fading of your furnishings. If it is too dark you will not be able to see what you are doing. Curtains can only be open or closed which limits your options for light control. With Venetian blinds, they can be set at a range of angles to allow in exactly the amount of sunlight you want.

Longer working life

A set of curtains will only last for a short while before they need to be washed, and the more you wash them the more you shorten their life. Instead of putting up with dirty curtains or looking for new curtains why not choose a Venetian blinds installation? Venetian blinds will always last longer than curtains and unlike curtains, they can be quickly cleaned with a cloth without the need to take them apart first.
