custom blinds

Looking for custom blinds can be an overwhelming task, especially when you don't know exactly what you are looking for. With so many window treatments and custom curtains available, you can get lost in what you think you need. The first and most important factor in deciding which custom blinds to get is their color.


Color's Effect on the Room

It's absolutely vital that you take into account already existing decor when you pick out your new custom curtains. The palette you have chosen for your room can help to decide not only the color of your custom drapery but also the style. Look at the hues that you see around your room, and look into colors in the same vein.

Additionally, if you want to draw eyes to the window, custom commercial blinds in a bright popping color may be just what you need. A stark contrast can be hard to tie into a room, but as long as you have enough room to adjust your decor to complement the bright drapes, you'll have a match!


Color's Effect on Lighting

Lighting can turn a dull room into the perfect lounging space. Depending on what your room is being used for, you are going to want to consider how much light you want to pass through them at all times. Semi-transparent curtains let in gorgeous natural light to bathe a room in sun. On the other hand, the extra backing of blackout curtains can block 99.9% of light. If you are getting custom blinds for your bedroom, blackout curtains are a very popular choice.


Color's Effect on Your Mind

Finally, the color of your new curtains can have an effect on your mind that you would never consider! Color theory has been studied for years, and science confirms that different colors can evoke different feelings and emotions in a viewer. The warmer colors, such as red, orange, yellow, and scarlet, are associated with passion and warmth. These would be perfect colors for an office space or a home gym. Even an art studio would thrive with some warm fiery inspiration!

Cooler colors, such as turquoise, blue, green, and purple, often radiate security, stability, and safety. These are colors that large businesses use to their advantage when customers are looking for insurance. Light blue custom blinds make a great addition to any kitchen or bathroom.

Colors truly make the curtain, and curtains make the room! The next time you are looking for some new custom blinds in your home, take into account the calming effects of cool colors and the emotional burst from warm colors.
