A great deal of consideration goes before you choose the window treatment which fabric, which style or look for made to order or buy from retail.

Girlwho believes that selecting between curtains and blinds is key to the entire character of your room.

How to choose curtain vs blinds?

Look for inspiration in your surroundings and definitely multiple instagram pages to decide what theme you want in your room next up is the lighting see if your room get early morning bright light or afternoon sharp sunlight this can be a major bummer if you don’t evaluate it.

Always keep in mind the texture I have a collection of curtains vintage silk ones that are opaque paired with some made to order sheer curtains for day time. These curtains are easy to manage and can be dry cleaned/washed in washing machine at home that’s what I really like about them.

As I live in an apartment the sheers stay on through the day with small embroideries on it, this gives me enough natural sunlight and also keeps the inside of the house out of sight.

I love to use some curtain ties to create a more aesthetic look these are mostly reuse of some old hangings I bought and are not in use. Reuse Restyle and Refurbish is my mantra for home styling always helpful and sustainable. Keeps me in budget too.

If you are thinking of investing in blinds that’s great idea too, but when there is space restrictions and if you are looking for a more permanent solution blinds are a great choice the only challenge I feel with blinds is you have limited options to constantly change them. I over the years have collected 2 – 3 sets of curtains and that gives me a lot of options to mix and match sticking to my mantra of being sustainable.
