{Guest Post} Why You Should Change Your Window Coverings (and How)

The following is a guest post from Danielle Mcann of Melbourne Blind Company

When changing the window coverings in your home, you have the opportunity to completely change the look and feel of your home. You’ll be surprised at how quickly new blinds or curtains can change any living space, from a change of style to just a change of colour, it’s like a small scale renovation.

Before you choose your windows’ new look, there are a few things you should think about first. Whatever the reason you are deciding to update your coverings, perhaps they are outdated or broken, or maybe you just want a different style or colour, you should think about the things you dislike about your current window coverings and decide on what it is that you want. Perhaps your current curtains let in too much light, so you might want to consider changing them to thermal lined blinds, like these from the Melbourne Blind Company,  ensuring that light as well as heat and cold don’t enter the room through the window. This is also a great way of naturally controlling the temperature in your home, which helps reduce energy costs.


Perhaps you want to take advantage of natural light during the day but keep prying eyes at bay, you could try dual roller blinds which have both a sheer and block-out blind in one, giving you added versatility. They also create a more streamlined look, adding a modern touch of simplicity to any home.

If you are busy keeping up the family home, you probably want an easy option for your kids rooms as well. Something that doesn’t dirty easily, a window covering that is functional and tough wearing perhaps? In this case, a roller blind could work well as they come in a variety of colours, allowing you to customise the look of your child’s room, separate but complimentary to the rest of your home.


There are so many options when updating your window coverings, but with a few helpful tips in mind, it should make the process a little easier. Just remember to consider style and functionality, you’ll be sure to find the right blinds for you.

Thanks for the great post Danielle!
