Arched windows add a unique dimension to a room. But many find the task of covering these sophisticated windows a tough one. Well, let me tell you that, adding blinds to the arch, which is the primary part of the entire window, is quite easy. There are blinds available in the market which can cover the window and open up as required. You can pick the manual ones or go in for the motorized blinds as well. These nicely cover the arch shape, and help the area blend well with the rest of the window. So, you can either opt for pre-made blinds or order and get a custom-made one. Make sure that the type of blinds used for the arched area and lower rectangular or square part is the same, or perfectly complement each other.
Waterproof blinds are surely a smart choice to add long-lasting beauty along with privacy. Also remember that the vertical blinds are best avoided as you cannot get complete privacy with most of these. Horizontal and roll ups, along with those in overlapping slats, are the best. Go for colors to match your bathroom decor theme and add a new style element to it. Placing a few small plants around the window will enhance its look. Checkout the huge variety available before you decide on one.
As mentioned above, the construction of the blinds allows it to act as a filter for light, leaving the room illuminated with a mild and pleasant glow. The honeycomb structure also acts as an insulator and limits the flow of incoming and outgoing air by trapping them midway, thus keeping the room at a steady temperature. Such cellular shades help maintain room temperature, by keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The larger the cell size, the better the insulation.
For cleaning greasy aluminum window blinds, use ammonia mixed with water. They can also be cleaned by placing in a hot bath with a little detergent, or by using a mixture of baking soda and water. If they are made out of a different material, say cloth, then remove them and put them on a towel. Use water and mild detergent mix as a cleaning product. Dip a baby toothbrush in the water mixture and softly brush them. Make sure that the brush does not become too greasy, otherwise it will soil the blinds instead of cleaning them.
