Why Choose Blinds Over Curtains?

Blinds over Curtains

There’s a lot that goes into decorating your home so it reflects your tastes and creates an aesthetic you can be proud of. One often overlooked consideration is whether you want blinds or curtains for your home. To that end, we’ve composed a list of the top reasons you’d want to choose blinds over curtains when making your selection.


If you’re looking for a long-lasting window covering that’s durable enough to endure the occasional accident, then you want blinds. Unlike curtains which are susceptible to tearing and rips, blinds are usually made of stronger materials like wood and composites. That means they can withstand a bit more punishment and typically come with a longer lifespan. Family room blinds are particularly key here as they see a lot of action—and are able to withstand the routine use.


More often than not, blinds are the more affordable option compared to curtains. While prices do vary depending on the material used in the blinds vs. the material used in the curtains, on average, you’ll find more cost-effective options with blinds. One of the best things about blinds is that they come in a variety of patterns, colours, and styles, so that no matter what your tastes are, you’ll be able to find blinds that are right for you—no matte your budget.

Easy Cleaning

Blinds are also less of a hassle to maintain and clean. For instance, you won’t have to worry about stains and mould as much with blinds compared to curtains. And unlike the fabric in cloth curtains, stains are easier to remove. You also won’t have to be as careful when cleaning – if you clean a cloth curtain too vigorously you may inadvertently damage it. If you’re looking for no hassle options and easy cleaning, we have many options to choose from. 

Light Control

Curtains are an all-or-nothing affair; either they’re opened or closed. Maybe to an extent they can be partially open, but it’s difficult to control how much light you let in. But with blinds, you can make your rooms as sun-bathed or muted as the mood calls for. This is great for living rooms when you want to let in some natural light, while also maintaining privacy.
