Are you struggling to choose between blinds and curtains for your home or office? Then you’re not alone. Many people aren’t sure which to opt for when selecting window coverings for their property. Whilst both come with benefits, blinds are usually the best choice. As well as bringing a wealth of style to a room, they’re also very practical and easy to operate. Read on to find out why blinds are better than curtains.

A wealth of styles, patterns, and fabrics 

One of the biggest benefits of choosing blinds for your home or workplace is that they come in such a huge range of styles, including roller, vertical, and Perfect Fit blinds. There are so many patterns and colours available too, making it easy to select blinds which meet your needs and reflect your tastes and existing décor. Whether you’re seeking a classic look or you want to grab people’s attention with a bold design, we have the perfect blinds for you. We can help turn your vision into reality. 

At Humberside Sunblinds, we supply blinds in many high-quality fabrics, from cotton and Jacquard to satin, silk, and PVC. Whether you need practical PVC blinds for a kitchen or bathroom or you’re seeking luxurious Jacquard blinds to bring sophistication to your living room, we can assist. We provide bespoke solutions, allowing us to supply the perfect blinds for your home or business. 

Better light control 

If you want to be able to control how much light enters a room, we recommend choosing blinds over curtains. Whilst curtains are designed to block out the light, blinds are much more versatile, letting you filter the light accordingly to suit your needs. Blinds let you either flood a space with natural light, let in some light, or create total darkness – the choice is yours. Venetian and vertical blinds allow the most effective light control. Louvres can be angled to control the light, balancing the need for natural daylight with the need for privacy.

Fantastic insulative properties 

Curtains may be great at keeping the heat in a room, however, they’re not ideal for keeping rooms cooler during the summer months. In contrast, blinds can keep you comfortable all year round thanks to their fantastic insulative properties. Twist vision blinds are a good choice due to their ability to trap heat between their different layers. Constructed from two different layers of fabric – one transparent and the other a block colour, they can help to keep your home or office warm or cool whatever the season. They have become a very popular type of blinds in Grimsby, Cleethorpes, and Lincoln thanks to their great insulative qualities. 

Easy to operate

Some people opt for curtains simply because they’re simple to use. However, more and more property owners are realising that blinds are just as easy to operate. At Humberside Sunblinds, we manufacture blinds which are very straightforward to open and close, and what’s more is that many products are completely cordless, making their operation even easier. With cordless blinds, you don’t need to pull a cord to lift the blind via a pulley system. Instead, they come with a SafeLock button on the bottom rail. Holding this button down releases the tension held in the strings, allowing you to push the blinds into your chosen position. Importantly, all our cordless blinds adhere to the latest child safety laws, making them an ideal choice for kids bedrooms. 

Humberside Sunblinds offers a great selection of motorised window blinds in Lincoln, Grimsby, and Cleethorpes too. Electric blinds can be controlled using a remote control, enabling you to open and close when without even getting up from the couch. Motorised blinds are well suited to rooms which have difficult to access windows or for people with mobility issues.  

Durable and easy to maintain 

Do you want your window coverings to stand the test of time? If so, it makes sense to choose blinds rather than curtains. As well as being durable and long-lasting, they’re also easy to maintain, requiring minimal cleaning to keep them looking great. Plus, blinds are much more likely to hold on to their stylish appeal. Curtains that start out as chic and on-trend can quickly become dated and tasteless over time, ruining the aesthetics of your room. If you’re looking for blinds which are most likely to retain their style and elegance, look no further than Roman blinds. Classic and timeless, they can be relied upon to bring charm and beauty to your home for many years to come. 

Maintaining blinds is a very simple task too. Even though they a have a tendency to gather dust, a quick vacuum is usually all that’s needed to keep them looking their best. Curtains require much more hard work to keep them in tip-top condition. If you’re seeking easy to maintain blinds in Cleethorpes or Lincoln, choose those constructed from wipe-clean fabrics such as PVC. This fabric is ideal for rooms that attract mess, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and children’s rooms. 

Highly affordable 

Curtains can cost a pretty penny, particularly if you’re seeking a bespoke product. In comparison, blinds are often much more affordable, with solutions available for all budgets.
