When an interior decorator chooses between blinds and curtains as window dressings, many factors are taken into account. Curtains lend an air of luxury to a room, whether hanging heavy block-out drapes or sheer, flutter-in-the-breeze curtains.
Blinds or curtains?
Blinds are available in a multitude of materials and styles, whereas curtains come in a larger variety of fabrics and are more easily matched to the upholstery. Easy to clean and durable, many blinds are also UV resistant and will protect your upholstery from fading. Curtains, on the other hand, must be taken down and washed on a semi-regular basis.
Installation of blinds and curtains.
Electric roller blinds and electric curtain rails are the freshest trends in home décor convenience. The installation of blinds and curtains in hard-to-reach areas can be quite a challenge for an interior decorator. Peace River Interiors are stockists of two highly acclaimed international brands, Somfy who is known for state of the art home automation products and Mottura who is well known internationally for their high-quality curtain and blind systems.
Warm in winter and cool in summer.
Energy saving is the catchphrase in decorating a modern building. The majority of heat that enters or leaves a building is via glass. Peace River Interiors offers many energy saving blinds and curtains. The Energy 736 Roller Blind, for instance, is a sleek electronic roller blind with solar panel and remote controlled and suitable for most homes. Whereas the Power 571 electronic curtain rail can be controlled by remote or a home automation system.
