Using Quality Blinds For Commercial And Residential Buildings

Blinds can be categorised into several types including roller, blackout, roman, Venetian, perfect fit, vertical, wood and commercial. If you are decorating or designing different rooms, the type of blinds you will use will be determined by the purpose of the room, the size of the windows, user preferences and the expected overall appearance of the room. For example, if you are decorating bedrooms or rooms that will be used by avid gamers, then blackout blinds are perfect. On the other hand, if you are decorating an office building then roller blinds, wood blinds or Roman blinds are ideal. However, in all these cases, the quality of the blinds is important for a number of reasons.

Durability and overall appearance

An investment in high quality commercial blinds improves the overall appearance of the commercial building.  At the beginning, it might prove hard to differentiate the low quality from the durable high quality blinds, to the untrained eye, but a few months down the lane, it becomes apparent. The low quality blinds start falling apart: the colours fade unevenly, the blinds no longer drape well and some may become torn. This diminishes the aesthetic value of the room or building which can be detrimental to the image of the commercial building or the inhabitants of the residential units.

Cost savings

Opting for low quality blinds for commercial and residential buildings has great cost implications. The high rate of wear and tear implies that the low quality blinds will need to be replaced either annually or after a few months. In addition to this, the reinstallation will also result in unnecessary labour costs as well as direct and indirect opportunity costs associated with the time utilised to shop and install the new blinds. However, this can be resolved by installing high quality blinds that last up to decades. Then, the resulting cost savings can be redirected into other uses within the commercial setup or the home.


What would happen if, at any given moment, those passing by your building were privy to the activities and the conversations going on? One of the core reason as to why blinds are installed both in commercial and residential buildings is to provide privacy to the users. In an organisation setting, privacy is important when sensitive matters are being discussed while in the residential setting, it ensures individuals can carry out their day to day activities without worrying about prying eyes. High quality blinds serve this purpose effectively while the low quality ones may fail from time to time. This failure can be detrimental to the welfare of the individuals or the organisations involved and in some cases, it may even result in personal or legal issues.

In most cases, the initial investment in high quality commercial and residential blinds will be substantially higher than that of low quality blinds. However, the financial and other benefits that will accrue from the use of these high quality blinds in the long term will be worth your while. Besides, you get to eliminate the constant headache of replacing the blinds annually.
