Temporary Blinds: Space Holders for the Real Deal

Designing your new home can either be a fun and enjoyable experience or turn out to be a complete mess. If you want to get everything all at once, whether that be furnishings, decorations or lights you will end up with an interior design that appears to be anything but appealing. Therefore, the best advice I can give to any new homeowner is to never buy things for the house in a hurry. The truth is that you can’t really know what exactly would work best for your living space when you’ve just moved into your home a couple of weeks ago. Many homeowners tend to make a rushed decision about window treatments simply because they want to cover as soon as possible those unappealing bare windows.

In reality choosing window treatments should be the final step of designing any room in your home since you would want them to match and complement your interior design. This doesn’t mean that you have to leave your windows bare while you are in the process of furnishing and decorating your home. Until the time has come to choose the ideal treatment for the shape and size of your windows you can get the desired privacy and light control with temporary blinds. These are very inexpensive and serve as a much better solution than using customary sheets or cardboard to cover your windows. For once, temporary blinds will look a lot better than a plain sheet of cardboard and are easier to adjust than customary sheets to let in as much light as you need.

Usually made of paper a temporary blind is designed to be easily attached on the window frame and the best thing is that you can customize it to fit the size of your windows. You don’t need any tools to install the blinds, just peal off the adhesive seal and stick them in place. Every blind features two clips that allow for easy opening and closing. There are two types of temporary blinds: light filtering and blackout. Letting in a dose of natural light while still providing a moderate level of privacy light-filtering models are commonly used in such areas as the living room, hallway and kitchen. Temporary blackout blinds can be adjusted to completely block out light and are ideal for rooms that require lots of privacy such as the bedroom and bathroom.

While light-filtering models come in colours such as white and beige, the most popular colours for temporary blackout blinds are black, grey and brown. Although this type of blinds are not made from the finest materials, they do have an aesthetic appeal. Most models are mounted inside the window frame which is a great way to dress up the windows and let in enough natural light. But, there are also blinds that can be mounted on the outside. Blackout models usually have an outside mount option.
