Generally speaking, lighter blinds are preferred in the living areas of the home – the living room, dining room and kitchen.
The reason, primarily, is that plenty of light is needed in these areas. Also, it’s unlikely that you’ll be sleeping in these rooms so there’s no need to block light.
If you prefer to create a light, bright area, it’s always advised to choose white, cream or light colours for your window coverings.
This does not only allow for more light to enter the room, but it also creates a softer, lighter overall look and feel.
