Summer is over and for some people the pressure is on to sell their homes or secondary properties before the traditional slow down in the housing market leading up to Christmas.
Moving home can be a very exciting time, and usually is, however, the thought of the upheaval and the preparation and decorating of the property you are selling can be quite daunting and can make this time very stressful indeed.
Using window blinds as feature focal points throughout the home can take the stress out of many of the mundane decorating tasks, by reducing the number of tasks you need to do or by avoiding them completely.
Window blinds prices have dropped dramatically over the past few years and to dress your home throughout with fabulous new window treatments will be a lot less costly than you think!
There is a huge range of blind options to suit every budget, making it easy to find attractive blinds that give the home that much needed wow-factor when selling and at a cost that sits comfortably within the overall decoration budget.
Here’s how to use window blinds to help sell a home:
Wooden blinds and faux wood blinds - the UK’s favourite.
Decorate with a subtler style when preparing a home for buyers, use muted, soft colours. White, ivory and cream wooden blinds can give any room a bright, stylish look. Crisp and clean usually works best and it means prospective buyers can imagine much easier how they can put there own design interpretations on each room.
Faux wood blinds too represent a stylish choice and are much more affordable than buying real wooden blinds. Furthermore faux wood blinds can be used throughout the home as they are 100% waterproof, really durable and are the ideal kitchen and bathroom option.
There are many contemporary colours available in both wood venetian and faux wood venetian blinds and many blind manufacturers are using the colour palettes of the likes of Farrow and Ball, the paint specialists.
