How to modernise your home with window coverings

Windows are like the eyes of a home. So no matter where you live, it’s important to dress them correctly.

Old window coverings like heavy curtains will instantly date a house.

A great way to update a room is to install more modern blinds, but keep the look soft at the same time.

For example, you could use shades are made of two sheer fabrics, and this is what you call an S-shaped vane. The vane directs the light to the ceiling brightening the room while the sheer fabric gives you a lovely soft-focus view. 

The back layer is white to reflect the heat, and it also keeps a neutral appearance from the outside of your house - regardless of whether the shades are open or closed.

The blinds can be tilted to control the light coming into the room. And of course close them completely for full privacy.

Opening them is easy with this single retractable cord. And it’s a safety feature if you have young children.
