Blinds And Curtains: Alike But Different
Sunlight is really good to see at home, but too much of it isn’t. Good thing there are curtains that keep those unwanted rays.
But curtains sometimes tend to get broken easily with all the possible dangers in the house: stains, scissors, shears, open wires, and even kids. Curtains also have the disadvantage of having high maintenance. Since dust and dirt on curtains can’t be cleaned by the usual feather dusters, nor sucked by vacuum cleaners simply, cleaning curtains entail a cumbersome method of taking them off the curtain rod and washed by bulky washing machines. This is not at all what you have in mind in maintaining your home fixtures and decors.
It’s good then that blinds were created. They’re sturdy, neat, easy-to-use and to maintain, and after all serves the same purpose as that of curtains.

• Fairly sturdy
• Very affordable
• An accent for modernized homes
