When it comes to window treatments, the options largely fall into two camps: blinds and curtains. As with most home decor decisions, choosing between them is a matter of personal preference and specifics of the room in question. After all, there are certainly pros and cons to both. While blinds tend to be more affordable and precise in light control, curtains can add instant style and cozy textures to a space.
(Blinds are also easier to clean, technically, but that just means they must be cleaned more often—though that means they’re cleaner at any given moment than curtains…ideally)
Shutters add an element of traditional beauty to most homes they grace. Installing shutters usually involves a sizeable investment; however, it is well worth it if you can afford it. They are very versatile window coverings, as not only are they functional with regards to insulation, privacy, light control and décor aesthetics, but they also have the benefit of being able to make any home that much more secure and if well maintained, they can last a lifetime.
Curtains are by far the most popular option as they are very versatile, easy to make, operate, fit and maintain.
