Color is where we begin in decorating. It is the tool that we use to create effective interiors. Color is perhaps the most powerful technique that a designer can use to affect emotions. That is why it is important to consider color choices carefully . What is the function of the room and who will be primarily living in the space are questions that will help answer what color scheme to employ?
When color is done correctly, it can enhance the feelings of health and well being. Color can influence the perceived temperature of a room, making you feel cool or warm. Also, it can control the visual aspects of space, making a large room appears cozy or a small room, look spacious. Of course color has the power to influence romance, and to create a mysterious setting.
There are basically two choices when selecting a color scheme. For a more bold interior you can use a “complementary” color scheme. This is when the colors are opposite one another on the color wheel, such as red and green, blue and yellow, or purple and orange. If you like your room to be more serene, you can go with the “analogous” color scheme. These are colors that are close to each other on the color wheel, such as yellow and green, blue and violet, or red and orange.
When deciding on color in a room that already have decorative items in it, such as an oriental rug or a sofa, I love to pull the colors from an existing pattern. It is an effective technique that will pull a room together. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard, “Wow, I can’t believe how window treatments complete a room!”
Let us guide your color decisions through your emotional temperament so you can enjoy your home for years to come.

For small windows, mini blinds could be your best window treatment alternative. They come in a wide variety of materials like vinyl, aluminum, wood and PVC plastic. Mini blinds can be a great way to decorate a small area due to them being a very inexpensive window treatment, their ease to use, and that they work well in combination with other window covering and blind treatments. They come in a vast combination of colors which makes them easy to blend or highlight an area. Installation is a key factor with mini blinds. Take for instance aluminum mini blinds, when installed properly they are extremely energy efficient, will protect furniture and flooring from those harmful UV rays, and can give great sound absorption. When deciding on your mini blinds a couple of things that you should take into consideration is how will the window blind fit into your room’s decor or what level of privacy you desire.
For instance you may want no light appearing when the blinds are closed and lots of privacy, you will want to choose a mini blind that is not transparent in material choice and closes very flat. But if privacy during the evening hours is not an issue and you want maximum daylight during the day, choosing a sheer mini blind is a beautiful answer to your needs. Overall, mini blinds can be the most cost effective start to your window treatment design and with their combination with other window treatments like curtains, cornices, swags, valances – you will achieve a very professional finish to your window decor that will enhance any rooms appeal.
Mini-blinds have replaced the old-fashioned Venetian blinds as more convenient and attractive window treatments. Blinds are window coverings that can have either vertical or horizontal slats, have an accordion or honeycomb construction, or are woven from natural or synthetic reeds. The only disadvantage they have is that they cannot be cleaned easily.
The mechanisms for opening and closing blinds range from simple cords and easy-to-operate continuous chains to remote-controlled electronic devices. Blinds block out sunlight, prevent curious passersby from peeping into your house, and also add to the decor of your house. They come in various styles. You can buy ready-made blinds or make them yourself at home.
There are mini blinds to fit everyone’s budget. Aluminum and vinyl mini blinds are the least expensive, while faux wood and wood blinds are at the top of the price range. You are sure to find mini blinds that will go with your decor with all of the choices that are available.
Decorating on a budget can be difficult, but vinyl mini blinds make it easier to get the look you want. Available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and styles, blinds are one option to expensive window treatments. Even if you eventually plan on adding other window treatments, mini blinds are a great starter treatment, so that you can spend money decorating other parts of the room while getting the privacy and light control that you need.
Manufacturers offer many different kinds of vinyl blinds. Although vinyl mini blinds are often one of the least expensive window treatments, you don’t need to settle for cheap or ugly looking blinds. There are blinds that have an embossed texture that make them appear to be made of fabric, for example. You can also find faux wood blinds or colors that will match your décor.
Vinyl blinds make great window treatments for several reasons:
They are ideal of humid environments like kitchens and bathrooms. Fabric and other materials can rot or have problems with mildew and mold. Vinyl prevents these issues, making the mini blinds practical and easy to care for.
There are many different colours of Venetian blinds available to choose from. The colours available for Venetian blinds include metallic hues which give blinds a modern appearance to any room. The ever popular white PVC Venetian blinds compliment bathroom decors and provide a clean, pristine effect which is durable and resistant to steamy atmospheres. When the slats of the blinds are angled they provide complete privacy and yet allow plenty of light to enter the room. Ready made Venetian blinds are manufactured so that they can be trimmed to fit both the width, by a small amount and the length by any amount to provide a perfect fit to your windows. A metallic rust coloured Venetian blind which has contrasting top and bottom rails, cord pull and a clear acrylic twist control presents a modern, contemporary feel, which is stylish when used in a bedroom or study.
