When we first moved into our house, I thought that I would have Roman Blinds on all the windows.
However, the show house had them and it quickly became apparent that they were going to prove very popular on The glade and so, I held fire.
I covered the living room and bedroom windows with curtains in the interim.
We are restricted as to what we can do with the walls of the house for another year, while they dry out properly.
Therefore, I used the curtains to inject a bit of pattern into the rooms.
That is, with the exception of the youngest’s windows because she needed blackout curtains.
This little window is at the top of the stairs and right next to the youngest’s room, it has the only roman blind in the house on it because I thought it would look neater.
Personally, I think that we shouldn’t complain about bright days but apparently, it has meant 4am wake ups which, it appears is unacceptable – kids eh!
A solution needs to be found.
These white venetian blinds in my kitchen are my favourite window treatments in the house.
I love american style Plantation Shutters but lots of local companies have stopped doing them.
I didn’t trust my measuring skills enough to order them online.Therefore, I compromised and these white blinds have been in my kitchen ever since.
I love the uncluttered, sleek look.
All of our windows are little boxy ones with (allegedly), straight corners.
So, feeling a bit more confident about my measurements, I have been having a look online.
The VELUX Blind direct website is full of ideas. I am thinking that the little blind that I have on the top of the landing could be replaced by a black out Roman Blind.
However, they also do venetian blinds like the kitchen ones, with full light control – I am torn!
What do you think?
One thing is certain, the youngest won’t tolerate another summer of my dithering.
Have a lovely day!
Disclaimer – Excitingly, VELUX have asked me to mention them in this post, however I probably would have done anyway because I love the options they have available and, more importantly, their website is easy to navigate ha!
