Blinds, Curtains or Both?

A great way of revamping the look and feel of your room is to inject it with some vibrant new window adornments. But how do you know which to pick? Do you choose blinds, curtains, or do you choose both? It has to be said that there are benefits to each of these three choices, but if you haven’t purchased new blinds or curtains in a while, making the decision will prove hard. Here, we’ll be showing why using both blinds and curtains is the most beneficial option for a wide range of homes.

The Best of Both Worlds

Why make the choice of either/or? A combination of curtains and blinds mean that your room benefits from the aesthetic qualities of both styles. You can have the sophistication of curtains while benefiting from the varied lighting and privacy control of blinds. That isn’t to say that your blinds can’t contribute to the appealing aesthetic atmosphere of your room. There are a variety of blinds available in a host of styles, including Venetian, vertical and Roman blinds to choose from.

Excellent Insulation

Either blinds or curtains alone can help improve how well your room is insulated, cutting your heating bills in the process. However, a combination of the two can at least double the insulation benefits you can reap. With winter fast approaching, and the chilly start of November being anything to go by, it’s well worth considering having both installed.

Heightened Privacy and Lighting Control

If there is one drawback to curtains, it’s that they don’t compare to blinds when it comes to lighting control. Curtains are either blocking all light out or letting it all in. Blinds, on the other hand, can provide a great level of lighting control but at night they can fail to maintain high standards of privacy. A combination of the two allows you to comprehensively control both lighting and privacy.


A combination of both curtains and blinds is also a practical solution when it comes to caring for them. Blinds are easy to look after and curtains can be decoratively drawn back using tiebacks to give an archway-like impression over the window.

Pair Your Curtains and Blinds Carefully

All of the benefits of combining curtains with blinds will be for naught if you fail to pair the two together perfectly. The two need to complement one another and the other aspects of the room equally, which is why you’ll require the expert services of Boyd’s Blinds to pick the ideal curtains and blinds pairing for your room.
