The use of Zebra Blinds in homes across North America is becoming a more and more common sight. Their versatility and compliment to curtains have made them a great addition to any home.
Not only do they help to protect curtains from fading from exposure to sunlight, but they also provide shade to a room so that the drapes don’t have to be constantly drawn and undrawn!
Here are a few ideas when using Zebra Blinds in one’s home:
Leave them alone! This is the simplest, and usually the most effective way to approach blinds. Zebra blinds are an inexpensive alternative to curtains, and so, can be used by themselves. This not only saves money, but also is a great way to give a home that sleek, modern feel.
Compliment the Curtains. For those who want to keep the curtains, but also want to preserve those expensive hangings, then Zebra blinds are a great way of both adding flair to the interior of a home and keeping those expensive drapes in perfect condition.
When doing so, always make sure that the color of the curtains and the drapes match. They don’t have to be identical, mind you, but they should complement each other.
Matching Colors Are Best. Not everyone is a fashion or design guru, not should everyone be one. So, if deciding on matching colors is an issue, don’t be afraid to ask a friend who does. They are almost always delighted to have someone ask them for their advice!
The Kitchen is a good place to start. Blinds are always a great addition to kitchens, especially. One of the biggest issues with curtains in kitchens is that they can actually be a fire hazard. The second reason is that kitchens are always expected to be reasonably bright and curtains tend to cut off too much light.
Zebra blinds in a kitchen keep the room bright, but allows for the adjustment of the natural light level. They also look smart and clean when present in a kitchen.
The Living Room can always use some light. The living room is the place where people tend to hang curtains, but it’s also one of the best places to hang a Zebra blind. This is especially true for people with bay windows or other large windows in their living rooms with a great deal of light coming in.
Zebra blinds in the living room are easily adjusted and mean that no one has to constantly fiddle with those nice, clean curtains!
What about the Bedrooms? This is one of the best places to have a Zebra blind as they not only allow the owner of the bedroom to personally regulate the amount of light coming into the room, but they also double as a quick way to ensure one’s privacy without having to close heavy drapes.
The modern look and feel of Zebra blinds are hard to dismiss today, which makes them a perfect choice in every room of the house from the basement to the attic!
