Made-to-Measure Blinds – Freshen Up the Home Décor

Made-to-Measure Blinds – Freshen Up the Home Décor
Spring is the ideal time of year for removing clutter and embracing an “out with the old, in with the new” philosophy: with the weather being neither too warm nor too cold, the time has come to open up the doors and windows and let in fresh air while cleaning off the dust and getting rid of items that are past their useful life.

For many homeowners, this also means rethinking the home décor. If you feel that your home or conservatory is ready for a facelift, keep in mind that high-quality, made-to-measure blinds will do just as much as new furniture or decorations to improve the look of your home and conservatory.

You might begin by emboldening the look of the conservatory with a set of brightly coloured conservatory blinds that will look spectacular against the white trim. Pastel colours in particular provide a soft look in all seasons and allow for light to pass through without causing the room to feel too warm in the summer months. When considering your options, be sure that your final decision is a good fit for your conservatory’s existing décor.

If your conservatory has not yet been completed and you haven’t already decided on the colour or style of furnishings, then consider all of these at once so that your new conservatory blinds and furnishings will both contribute to the desired look and feel of the conservatory.

Traditionally used externally as a window covering in hot climates, plantation shutters have come into fashion as an interior window covering because of their appealing combination of looks and practicality. Plantation shutters add texture and depth to any room and set off the windows even better than standard window treatments.

They are also highly functional and improve energy efficiency by blocking drafts in winter and heat in the summer, both physically and by providing shade. In any season, they also provide privacy without blocking the view from within the home. Stained wood shutters look equally well against white or stained trim, and any natural colour for the walls will complete a traditional colour scheme. For more modern tastes, consider white plantation shutters, or shutters with a light stain, as a complement to light-coloured walls and a few well-chosen accent pieces.

Shutters may be full-length, café-style (which leave the top half of the window uncovered, allowing light to come in while the shutters are closed for privacy) or tier-on-tier, covering the upper and lower halves of the window so that they can be opened and closed individually for the desired amount of light and privacy. Shutters are also just as easy to clean as traditional blinds: one quick wipe with a cloth or brush with a feather duster and you’re done!

Wood shutters can also be measured to fit doors opening up onto the front lawn or garden, offering many of the same benefits as plantation shutters for windows. Likewise, conservatory blinds should always be made-to-measure to ensure the perfect fit for each section of the conservatory.  For a fresh, new look to the home or conservatory that will delight the family and visitors alike, custom shutters and conservatory blinds may be exactly what you need.

Silk Flowers from The Home and Gift Shop

Silk Flowers: Year-Round Blooms For Your Home
One of the best ways to add warmth and charm to your home décor is by bringing nature indoors. And living as we do in the climate that has given rise to the world-renowned English garden, there is no easier way to bring nature indoors than with beautiful silk flowers such as you would expect to see in your garden or a neighbour’s garden during the growing season. Indeed, silk flowers make it possible to enjoy the beauty of nature year-round.

A good-quality silk flower arrangement can complete your home in numerous ways. If you already have wallpaper or curtains in a floral print, then having similar-looking silk flowers can be a very attractive way to bring the floral theme to life in spaces where the floral design on your walls and windows might otherwise go noticed. Yet another way to brighten up a room with silk flowers is by having them on a table top in a room with a floral-inspired paint colour, such as lilac.

If certain pieces of furniture or bedding have a rose theme, then a rose silk flower arrangement will complement it beautifully. Likewise, silk flowers in the kitchen – such as a tall, slim potted orchid in the kitchen window – can transform what many consider a purely functional home space into one where you can peacefully enjoy warm water on your hands and a pleasant view on either side of the window while washing dishes.

If peonies and sweet pea blossoms are a personal favourite, there’s bound to be a place for them in your home as well! The beauty of silk flowers is that you can choose whatever type of arrangement you like and enjoy flowers in your home all through the year.

The Home and Gift Shop has been providing housewares and gifts for the home across the UK for over 15 years. Whether you are looking for silk flowers or anything else to liven up your home, we are certain to have the perfect item to suit your needs.
