Window dressings can make or break a room. When it comes to the right window dressings and the number of decisions you have to make (fabric, colour, pattern), it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all. Here’s our list of the most important things you should consider when choosing your window dressings:
- Colour & Pattern
Perhaps the most important decision you’re going to make. Colours and patterns have the power to create certain states of mind. They give us energy; make us feel happy, warm, safe, and calm. And they have the same impact on a room. Our Cosiflor® blinds are available in a large range of colours and designs.
Selecting the right fabric is essential to choosing your window dressings. The fabric you choose will dictate how well your curtains function and maintain their quality over time. Cosiflor® blinds are made with the finest European fabrics. The asymmetrical design ensures that the pleats hold and keep their shape over time. On a practical level, your choice of fabric will also determine the amount of light control and the level of transparency for privacy.
- Standard vs. Custom
The size and shape of your windows plays a big role in your choice of window dressings, particularly with custom windows. Skylights, geometric shaped and tilt and turn windows can limit your options. Cosiflor® blinds are suitable for all sorts of joinery – timber, uPVC, aluminium – and can be tailored to provide a shade solution to windows of different shapes, sizes and placements. So even if you’re windows are non-square, angled or conservatory ceiling windows, Cosiflor® blinds will have a shade solution for your home.
Window dressings are more than just aesthetics. They also help with a number of practical needs, such as insulation and privacy. Cosiflor® has got you covered; their blinds allow you to create a window dressing that is both stylish and practical. The Honeycomb thermal is a twin-layered blind, insulating your home against harsh seasonal elements.
Windows and their dressings are often the last things we think about cleaning, mostly because it can be fiddly and time consuming. But if you choose the right dressings, they can be the easiest thing in your home to clean. The flexible design of Cosiflor® blinds makes them the perfect solution to windows that are difficult to access and where cleaning might be a challenge.
If you are looking for a stylish, energy efficient blind that will help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter then our Cosiflor® blinds are a great solution. If you’d like to find out more, contact our team today.
