Curtains or Outdoor Blinds, What Suits Your Needs?

The right window accessory can make a great difference to your home and it boils down to personal choice, curtains or outdoor blinds. They are both effective and have their place and are both easy to install too. Custom made can fit any size window, regardless of width and shape. Whether it is on your patio or kitchen window, curtains and outdoor blinds can play their role. What is the difference between the two and which is better?


Here’s  are a few things to help you decide:


The choice between curtains and outdoor blinds can be brought down to a safety aspect.  While curtains tend to be more attractive, they will be very dangerous if you placed near heat sources like a stove or even the toaster. The reason is simple; curtains can be easily blown by wind through an open window making them prone to getting burned when exposed to heat sources. Make sure curtains are not places anywhere near a heat source.

Outdoor blinds on the other are outside. You can even close them to prevent wind from getting inside your house in the winter. Being outside makes them ideal for kitchen windows and patio even where there you are enjoying barbecue activities.


Easily Cleaning and Durability

The kitchen can be a messy place. Food spills and splatters can happen anytime. Think about how easy your window accessory can be cleaned; outdoor blinds are on the outside and your window can easily be wiped, while curtains need to be washed thoroughly.

Window solutions like curtains and outdoor blinds need to be durable. They have to withstand weather elements like heat and cold. They should also be resistant against spills and stains.

Whichever window solution you choice remember to buy quality as you get what you pay for and you don’t want to be asking the same question next year or the year after because you have to replace your cheap choice.
