When considering interior design, there’s lots to think about of course. What colour will the walls be? Which type of floor covering are you going to choose? Where’s the furniture going to be?
One area that many people tend to neglect in all this decision making is what kind of window furnishing they are going have. You could decide on traditional curtains or perhaps something modern looking like a nice set of electric blinds. You might even want to go more continental and choose shutters that not only add style but security to your home.
With so many different types of window furnishing on the market and plenty of variation within each category, as well as all the colours available, it can certainly be trouble picking the best option for each room.
First of all, windows are an important focus point in any home and you want them to look suitably impressive. It’s not a case of using the same approach for each part of your house, you probably want to choose the right blind, shutter or curtain style that works for the particular room you are dealing with.
For instance, if you want a bedroom where you can successfully shut out the light then you might want well-lined curtains or think about high quality blinds. You could want something less solid when it comes to your kitchen such as a blind where you get some outside light filtering through to add atmosphere.
Posner Interiors have been providing interior design ideas for customers in Essex and London for the last 65 years, so we think we know just a little about the world of blinds, curtains and shutters. While it can be tempting to go for a pair of curtains on sale at the local supermarket, you might want to consider a tailored solution which takes a look at your whole interior design and creates an individual look for you and your home.
Generally, people don’t have all the options in front of them and talking to an expert who has literally worked with thousands of homes over the years can make all the difference. Not only are there a variety of different materials and designs when it comes to curtains, with other options such as blinds you have the choice of electric, slatted, pleated, vertical and roller to name just a few.
Bespoke solutions don’t just provide you with a matching look for your home – you also get a personal touch from someone who actually has experience in the field and cares about what you end up with. They can tell you what works and what doesn’t, as well as come up with some ideas you might never even have thought of.
When you buy off the shelf you all too often end up with something that isn’t quite right. At Posner we take all the measurements and discuss a wide range of options with you, casting a creative and honest eye over your windows to provide the perfect solution whether it’s shutters, blinds or curtains.
