Pet Friendly Design Tips  

You can have a beautiful house and a pet, too! It is possible to have the style you desire and the comfort of your animal companion in a home that you can be proud of, but you do need to make smart home design choices. Most people who have pets “avoid white” at all costs, and for good reason. When it comes to upholstery, choose woven fabrics with patterns, textures and darker colors that help camouflage dirt and pet hair. Avoid fabrics that need constant cleaning, like silk and velvet. Don’t invest too much money on furniture pieces you know your pets will be spending a majority of their time on and make sure it’s made of durable material. We suggest buying furniture that uses washable slipcovers, making cleaning up stains or hair quick and easy!

Painted Walls

Protect your walls with paint. If your furry friend likes to rub up against walls or maybe drools a lot, then you’re going to want to use paint with a semi-gloss finish on your walls.  The semi-gloss is ideal for rooms that see a lot of activity and moisture and allows for easy cleaning. Fall in love with a bold color or keep it simple with a neutral. When your pet makes a mess simply wipe your walls down with a damp paper towel and call it a day, it’s that durable!

Flooring

When it comes to your flooring, keep in mind your furry friend’s paws can be quite hard on them with scratching and “accidents.” Many home owners agree that if you choose hard-surface flooring in pet-occupied rooms it will help keep them in tip-top shape! Great options for durable floors that also look stylish include stone, ceramic, concrete, vinyl tile or laminate. They are easier to keep clean and stain-resistant compared to a carpeted floor. Such floors are also cooler in hot weather, an important consideration for pets with thick or long hair.

Area Rugs

You already know that area rugs are a great way to enhance a room and add a pop of pattern or colour. However, they also protect floors from claws and stains while providing a cozy spot for your pet to snooze. The best area rugs for pet owners feature patterns with a multitude of colors that draw the eye away from dirt, stains and pet hair. Make sure to include a non-stick pad beneath the rug so your pet can safely run throughout the house!

Patterned Furniture

Most people who have pets “avoid white” at all costs, and for good reason. When it comes to upholstery, choose woven fabrics with patterns, textures and darker colors that help camouflage dirt and pet hair. Avoid fabrics that need constant cleaning, like silk and velvet. Don’t invest too much money on furniture pieces you know your pets will be spending a majority of their time on and make sure it’s made of durable material. We suggest buying furniture that uses washable slipcovers, making cleaning up stains or hair quick and easy!

Fall in love with a bold color or keep it simple with a neutral. When your pet makes a mess simply wipe your walls down with a damp paper towel and call it a day, it’s that durable!

Bedding

We all have pets that like to cuddle in our beds, let’s just admit it! Help protect your bed from the inevitable dirt, pet hair and accidents with a duvet cover. Duvet covers are perfect for pet-owners because they can easily be removed and washed whenever needed. In addition, choose sturdy cotton sheets in a color or pattern that can hide pet hair between washings.

Cordless Window Treatments

Keep your loved ones safe with cordless window treatments in your home. By avoiding long drapes that touch the floor since it will prevent a collection of pet hair and debris from happening. Look into window treatments that only cover the length of the window and that are easy to clean, like shadesshutters or blinds. You will also have peace of mind knowing your cordless shades prevent your pet from getting tangled (which can lead to strangling or choking).

Quent Blodgett – Budget Blinds of Boise, ID

Cora Sutherland – Budget Blinds of Battleford, AB

“My client wanted a cornice to hide the hardware used for the motorized drapery panels we done for her,” explained Cora Sutherland. “She wanted to use the same white fabric as the draperies on the cornice, but not only that fabric, as she felt it would be too plain. My instructions were to come up with something that would complement the dark walls and flooring.”

New Year, New Window Treatments

New Year, New Window Treatments

Let’s start the New Year with a new look! Update your home with brand new window treatments— your home will thank you! Selecting the right blinds and shades in each room of your home can make a huge difference to overall appearance, energy efficiency, level of privacy and safety.

Wood Shutters

Energy Savings

Would you believe that as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows? Rather than cranking up your heat or air conditioning to avoid uncomfortable temperatures inside your home, you can avoid those costly energy bills through energy-saving window treatments. Check out our honeycomb shades or hardwood shutters that are designed to make indoor spaces cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Make your home the ideal temperature all year long, creating a comfortable environment for your family and guests!

Drapery in a Dining Room

Security and Privacy 

Safety and security is without a doubt one of the most important concerns for families and homeowners. Your home should serve as a comfortable retreat from your hectic schedule and an intimate setting to enjoy time with friends and loved ones. Unfortunately, a lack of window coverings can leave a beautiful home feeling unsafe and susceptible to prying eyes, harmful UV damage, and countless other security and privacy concerns. Updating your home’s window coverings to include features like security film and privacy drapes is an easy and effective way to ensure a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for every room in your home. Draperies offer a quality of design and craftsmanship that includes double turned hems, mitered corners, sewn-in liners, and bottom weights – making it a lasting statement ready to hang beautifully and withstand the test of time.

Motorized

Make your home smart in 2018 with our motorized window coverings powered by Somfy®, and MotorEase™ by Budget Blinds. Motorized window coverings not only add convenience by simultaneously opening or closing window coverings throughout your home, even on those hard to reach windows, they make homes safer for children and pets. Choose from a wide array of control options such as wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes and timers, and apps that allow you to control from your Smart device.

 

Moisture Resistant

Concerned about window treatments in spaces like your bathroom and wonder how they will last with moisture exposure? Our moisture resistant line of window coverings are made from exceptional materials and adhere to a stringent manufacturing process so that they may withstand the test of time. No matter how humid the environmental conditions may be in your area, Budget Blinds’ moisture resistant blinds will retain their integrity and beauty. Choose from our line of composite shutters that can resist high moisture areas like bathrooms while entrusting timeless elegance. Our line of faux wood blinds are well suited for places with high humidity like coastal homes.

 Bathroom Blinds

Deliver your home the makeover that it deserves this New Year! Whether you are looking for blinds, shutters, shades or drapes Budget Blinds has everything you need to fit your taste and colour scheme. We bring the showroom to you and take care of it all, measure and install. Let us help you create the perfect home oasis with new window treatments in 2018!
