Curtains and drapes are a wonderful addition to any room, and will certainly go some way towards brightening up any room as there are many colours and designs that can be purchased to fit your own particular style and personality. This rule also applies to blinds. Using blinds will also brighten up your living room in ways that curtains and drapes cannot.
With so many different types of window coverings available now you can choose different styles, colours, and shades to use in the living room. The vertical blind is a great choice as it lets in a lot of outside light. They can be pulled open in the daytime as much as you want, and you’ll still have some privacy along with having a brighter room. Vertical blinds in bright colours such as lemon and lime are popular and will effectively brighten up the room, making sure it looks fresh.
Horizontal blinds are also perfect to help brighten up the living room. They can be raised up to let in more sunlight, or turned to just let in enough of light and still be kept private. Mini-blinds are beautiful on small windows and can easily be adjusted to allow that sunshine to light up the living room. These can also be purchased in many light colours to accentuate the natural sunlight. Do not use dark colours on any of the blinds because they may make the room appear darker.
Most blinds are available in different materials such as fabric, faux wood, wood, woven material and even metal. Woven fabrics are unique because they add a tropical feel to the room and can still be opened enough to let in that sunshine. Fabric and wood are still very attractive in an elegant way, but it is still best to use the ones that are very pale in colour. A fabric blind may look more luxurious than the PVC verticals but they both add a flow to the windows as well as brightness.
Cellular blinds are also a great choice if you’re looking to brighten up your living room, because even when they’re closed, they’ll still let in enough light to brighten up the room. Since they can trap the air and keep in the heat of the summer, they can help insulate and save on energy costs. Venetian styles are still in vogue when it comes to the living room windows. They can also be used practically to brighten up the room.
When choosing the right blind to brighten up your living room, keep in mind to use a light colour, and to get the ones that can be opened enough to let in the natural sunlight.
