At Affordable Blinds, customer service is our number one priority. We want to make sure that your experience as a valued client is as pleasant as possible. That’s why we come to you when it’s time to update your blinds and shades – you work hard all week, having a design specialist come to your apartment saves you from venturing out into the hostile world of weekend shopping. Another advantage of having us come to you is that our amazing design specialists can look at the bigger picture of your apartment to determine the best style and colour of window treatment for the space.
As we head into the heart of summer and start to swing towards autumn, nice, light shades tend to be very popular. It’s not time to get out those heavy curtains yet, and cellular honeycomb shades could also be a good choice, since they are suitable no matter what season we’re in. If you like to sleep in on weekends, we often suggest blackout shades so you can get a good night’s sleep, and Roman shades or Venetian blinds can always add a touch of subtle class.
When you choose the right style and colour of blinds to complement your home, it can make a huge difference. Shopping for art and furniture with your window treatments in mind will create a cohesive style in your home that will help you relax in your spare time and impress guests when it’s time to entertain! Here at Affordable Blinds, we can offer the best prices on Hunter Douglas shades and blinds, which will certainly lend your abode an air of sophistication.
For the remainder of this post, we’re going to explore several design tips that may complement your home, depending on your personality and style:
Frills & Tassels
Whether it’s cheeky throw pillows, macramé or fluffy rugs, a bit of tactile feeling to your home. If you’re into arts and crafts, warmth and a sumptuous atmosphere, then adding some of these elements to your home will put a smile on your face every time you walk in the door. Typically, if you have light, billowy curtains, these kinds of crafty decorations work extremely well.
Greens and light golds can create a really cool, breezy, tropical vibe in your home this summer. Hanging plants are really great, and if you’re lucky enough to have a local shop that specializes in indoor plants and succulents, you might be able to snag some air plants, which are easy to care for and look great in a stylish terrarium. Tropical style goes extremely well with warm, woody shutters – especially California Shutters. If you’re interested in getting wood shutters for your bathroom but are concerned that they’ll warp, consider faux wood as a viable solution.
A really cool trend to brighten up your summer or autumn is shimmering carpeting. Shimmering carpets can lend your home a combination of sophistication and iridescent vibrancy. Paired with shimmering wall-paper or interesting paint effects. These types of carpet are for those sparkling individuals who are a little more adventurous, and while this kind of radical design is not for everyone, it may bring great joy to a select few.
