While blinds are a durable, stylish and easy-to-clean option for controlling the light in your home, they are regularly met with false misconceptions which can put people off from buying them.

Forums are teeming with myths about blinds, so we thought it only right to debunk some of these misconceptions in this blog today.

Here are 5 of the most common myths and misconceptions about blinds, debunked:

1.  They are hard to clean

This is one of the most common misconceptions about blinds that is simply not true. Many people claim that blinds are hard to clean as they wait until they notice that the blind is dirty, which is usually too late.

Just like if you were to leave your carpet for prolong periods of time without cleaning, you will eventually see a build-up of dirt and grime which cannot be removed.

Giving your blinds a quick wipe down when you do your house clean will prevent any build-up of dirt and keep your blinds looking fresh and beautiful.

At Blinds Of All Kinds, we offer high-quality blinds with cleaning and water-resistant options to make cleaning even easier for you. We also have a guide to cleaning your wooden Venetian blinds with some top tips to make cleaning your blinds even easier.

2.  They are not long-lasting and can break easily

Of course, poorly made blinds may well succumb to this, but when you choose a reliable blind company like Blinds Of All Kinds, you can ensure that your blinds will stay looking as good as new for many years to come.

Our blinds are designed for resilience and can be manufactured to your exact needs so you won’t need to worry about them breaking.

3.  They are hard to install

When people hear the words “DIY”, they instantly assume it will be an impossible task. People are quick to say that blinds are too difficult to install, when it actual fact, this isn’t the case.

We live in a world where instructional videos and expert online advice are a click away. There are a plethora of tutorials and videos out there that can help you to learn how to install them.

As long as you measure correctly, the fitting will be a breeze.

4.  Blinds are expensive

This is a common myth that is simply not true. While you might think that blinds should cost more than curtains, as a whole, blinds are a cheaper option than curtains.

This is because there is a lot more fabric used to make a pair of curtains compared to say a roller blind.

5.  There aren’t many styles of blinds

Possibly one of the biggest misconceptions about blinds is that there are only a handful of styles. In actual fact, there are a plethora of blind styles, including everything from the stylish Venetians blind to the energy-efficient Duette blinds.
