One of the most challenging things in a lot of homes is controlling how much or how little light comes into certain parts of the home at specific times of day. When you work with a builder to construct your home from the ground up, you can dictate what rooms you’d like the light to come in, how much you’d like to come in, and how you’d like the home to be oriented to the sun’s natural path. However, when you purchase a home from another owner, you don’t have control over any of that. The problem is that most people don’t even think about lighting until they’ve already purchased and move into the home. Only then do homeowners realize that they’re not happy with the way light comes into the home, but then it’s often too late to make any changes or adjustments.
Well, fortunately for all of those homeowners out there who aren’t happy with the lighting of their home, there’s something they can do. Purchasing new custom window blinds is an excellent way to significantly improve the lighting in a home. Let’s say, for instance, that your home was built in such a way that the morning sun is always trying to creep into your bedroom. You get up early during the week, but you like to sleep in on the weekends. The problem is that so much light comes in on Saturday and Sunday morning that you find yourself waking up at 6:00 a.m. every day. That’s an unacceptable situation to be in. Fortunately, companies like Shades on Wheels offer a wide variety of window blinds, and many of the products they offer are specifically designed to block more of the sun’s light from coming in. All you have to do is take down your old blinds and install some new ones, make sure they’re closed tight before you go to bed, and you’ll be sleeping until noon if that’s what you want to do.
Another lighting problem that many homeowners will run into is in their kitchen and living rooms. Most people prefer a lot of light to stream into these rooms during the day. The copious amounts of light make it easier for them to be productive, because it feels like they should be awake and doing things. However, many homes have window blinds in them that block the sun from coming into these rooms. What you need are a new set of window blinds that will capture more of the sun’s light and draw it into the room. Just like with the blinds in the bedroom only opposite, these blinds will help to attract more light into these rooms in the home.
The key thing to understand is that like custom window drapes, there are a wide variety of window blinds for homeowners to choose from. Some will bring more light into the home, while others will block more of it from entering. The key is to figure out which blinds are going to work best for the individual rooms in your home.
