Every now and then we need to decorate our home, and which style we use for decoration depends strongly on our preferred style, sense of beauty and what furniture we already have in the room. One of the top choices throughout the last few years has been the classic home decor. However what all does this type of decoration entail and how best to go about it? This is what this article will try to give you a glimpse in.
There are many aspects of home decor and much can be done about doing it the proper way. Truthfully, there is no right or wrong, and if you do one thing and leave out the other, no one will judge you for it. For example you can change the window treatments, you can buy new classic style furniture, or you can repaint or redecorate your walls.
An important aspect of what we call ‘classic home decor’ is having proper window treatments. The wooden Venetian blinds are a major part of this decoration type in homes that chose classic over other interior design styles. If you have wooden furniture in your home (and you should if you are going for the classic look), wooden blinds are a must, as they easily complement it to perfection.
The classic venetian wooden blinds are based on horizontal slats attached above the other which are suspended by clothes strips or various tapes and cords. You can easily rotate the slats to 180 degrees in both directions and you can pull the slats up. This window treatment type is really quite functional, decorative and allows you a lot of flexibility.
Depending on the type of furniture you already have in the room or based on your personal preferences, you can have Venetian blinds made of cherry wood, cedar, oak (a very popular one), ramin and basswood, just to name a few. Also depending on the wood type you choose, you will have a variety of shades and colors to choose from.
Another aspect of using Venetian blinds apart from their decorative benefit is the fact that they control the various outside elements including wind, heat and sunlight that enters your window, so your home is adequately protected.
If your room is rather bland and boring (at least in your eyes), adding Venetian blinds is a great way to spruce it up and bring new life to it. Even if you don’t have a classic home decor, Venetian blinds have been used with pretty much any residential style and ambient and it never failed to deliver. They are very pleasant and appealing to the eyes, and they can be easily customized to fit any room to the exact specifications. Not only that but did you know that they can also be painted so if you don’t like the look of natural wood, you can get your preferred choice of color instead.
