Back in 2012, when I finished my house renovation and moved in (finally), one of the decisions I was pondering back then was what kind of blinds or shades to put on my windows for privacy and sun control. It wasn’t a hard choice for me, because I fell in love with bamboo Roman shades and knew that the texture and color would enhance my casual, but traditional style home.
Back 30 years ago when I moved in my very first house, there were limited choices on shades and blinds. We all remember the dreaded mini-blinds, don’t we? That is exactly what I put in my first house, but thankfully the choices have broadened significantly since then.
The next trend that came along was white wooden blinds, the 2 inch variety that was so popular for many years. Those were in my last house in Birmingham and were super popular in the 1990’s.
But, there are lots of choice to make when it comes to window coverings, so let’s talk about a few of those today. Now, there are cellular shades, roller shades, Roman blinds, bamboo Roman blinds, to name a few.
So, what are your favorite ways to dress windows? Do you love cellular, bamboo, pleated, or roller shades? Or do you still have traditional wood blinds in your house? I would like to know what everyone is doing these days!
