If you are soon to be moving into a new build, screening is one of the first things you need to organise and the two most popular options are either curtains or blinds. Of course, you could choose a combination of both; there’s no reason to stick to one or the other, and with that in mind, here are a few tips to help you make the right choices.
- Avoid Pre-Packed Solutions – Both blinds and curtains come in pre-made packs, yet these are usually quite flimsy and very often, are not a good fit. Whether looking for kitchen curtains in Bordon or bathroom blinds in Salisbury, an online search for ‘custom curtains near me’, which will bring up a list of local companies. Ask a couple to pay you a home visit and you can discuss the many options while the technician measures up.
- Buy from an Online Company – The cheapest screening solutions can be found with a Google search and made-to-measure is the way to go. Bespoke solutions ensure a perfect fit and there are many designs, colours and styles, which can come together to provide the ideal home screening.
- Ask for Several Quotes – As you would expect, the blinds and curtains sector is highly competitive and asking a few providers will ensure that you get the best deal. Let each company send a representative to your home and present their products and pricing, then you can make an informed decision.
Whether you choose blinds or curtains, make sure you have made-to-measure solutions, which ensure that the screening is a perfect fit.
