Have you ever walked into a room
and instantly felt relaxed, calm and simply more comfortable? Maybe it’s the
fireplace, a softly burning scent or perhaps even something more subtle, such
as the window coverings.
Functionality is a prime concern
when selecting window coverings. But what many people miss is that window
coverings can also instantly transform a room into one that’s cozier. But where
should you start? Here are five blinds choices for creating cozier rooms.
Cellular shades. Cellular and honeycomb shades are made
from a lightweight cloth material. These window coverings have many practical
benefits such as reducing energy costs and providing great insulation and light
filtering. But they’re also available in a wide range of colors, giving you the
flexibility to select colors that add warmth and comfort to a room. Opt for
cozy colors such as light brown, fawn or even a dusty charcoal.
Roman shades. Roman shades provide a contemporary
look and are available in many fabric types, including sheers that enable
maximum light flow. Select a Tuscan bamboo shade to bring a sense of calm to
the room. Or select a cotton-linen shade with a cordless design, which creates
simple lines and a cozy feel.
Pleated shades. Pleated shades are fairly similar to
honeycomb cellular shades; however, they allow light and air to escape more easily
because of the small cord holes in the pleats. The pleated shade also
establishes a more contemporary look. Select natural colors or a silvery blue
to warm up the room.
Faux wood blinds. The faux wood blinds are a great choice
for a room that already has wood elements, whether it’s flooring or furniture.
Select a light shade of wood or bright white to illuminate the room.
Aluminum blinds. Aluminum blinds have come a long way since
the miniblinds. Today there are many options and styles available, yet many
people worry that these will provide a harder look to a room, rather than one
that’s cozy and warm. When you pair aluminum binds with carefully selected
drapes, you can instantly make a room feel cozy. Select light cotton blends or
wool blends for the drapes.
