Decorating your home can be a difficult task when it comes to window coverings, there are factors to consider such as the style you want and additional functionality that window coverings can provide for your home.

At Linh’s Window Fashions we have the expertise to help you choose the right window coverings for your home. Below are 6 factors to consider when choosing window blinds, shades and drapery:

Privacy and light control

Think about whether you want window shades with light-filtering fabrics to allow light in a room while still providing privacy or go for room darkening or blackout fabrics to block out all the light. Blackout shades are great for nurseries, media and bedrooms.


If you have children or pets living in your house you might want to take a look at the UltraGlide system, featuring a retractable cord, or remove cords entirely with a cordless system such as LiteRise, which uses a handle to operate the blind, or PowerView system with remote control.


There are a wide variety of blinds and drapery with a massive amount of fabric styles and colours to choose from. Consider which style you’re looking for your house such as traditional, rustic look or a more simple and minimalistic of a modern look for your home.


Many blinds and shades feature other uses beside providing privacy and light control. Blinds and shades can also offer energy efficiency capabilities, sound absorption and UV protection, Drapery can have as many functionality as blinds with much more added benefits. They’re also extraordinarily decorative and add enormous personality to a room.


There are easy and simple cleaning methods that are recommended such as simply dusting, vacuuming, and spot cleaning. However, vinyl and aluminum blinds are much easier to clean than fabric blinds. For a deeper cleaning method, Ultrasonic blinds cleaning may be considered. Blinds are immersed in a tank full of cleaning detergents then ultrasonic waves create millions of tiny bubbles to thoroughly clean the entire blind.
