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.
