Owning your first home is a big and important achievement in life. So before I go on, congratulations on reaching this huge milestone! You must be so excited and thrilled to be starting this chapter of your life with a home that you can call your own. Some of you would get to pick your own paint colour and choose the aesthetic of your new house. Some of you might not have that many choices but you will still be able to decorate your house as you wish.
However, you must be equally terrified and paranoid about all the things that could potentially go wrong in your new home. As a first time homeowner, there might be things that you are still ignorant or uninformed about. Just like this is the first time you are owning a home, this is also the first time for you to have the responsibility to make decisions regarding your new home.
If you’re a first time homeowner, you might be shocked by how many items you will need that are not included in your new home. Out of all the things you need, here is one essential household item that you should definitely get for your new house — blinds/curtains!
Why do I say that? Well, read on to find out.
3 Advantages of Installing Blinds/Curtains in Your New Home
1. Increase privacy and security
If your new home is a landed property, it is a no-brainer that you should install curtains or blinds to give yourself privacy and security within your home.
While it’s lovely to be able to see out the window and let some light into your home during the day, it’s a different story at night. While it may appear secure outside when the sun is shining, the night is a time of vulnerability and uncertainty. As a result, allowing visibility inside your home is a major risk.
When you have window blinds, you may glance out the window without worrying about being seen from within your house. From inside your home, window blinds can provide you with a sense of protection and seclusion.
If you are thinking that you live in a high-rise condominium so privacy and security are not the main concern, there are other advantages to installing curtains or blinds in your home.
2. Protect from hot weather and outside influences
Malaysia’s weather can be unpredictable — ranging from burning hot temperatures to torrential rain storms — sometimes within a day. Designed with a comfortable and cool patio in mind, the outdoor solar blinds are made to give your outdoor space the perfect amount of shade and light and heat blockage. These solars will also reduce glare, so you can make the most of your outdoor space. Enjoy being outside near your pool, and enjoy the shade and the breeze.
Curtains and blinds can keep the temperature inside your home cooler especially when the temperature outside is very high. Not only that, overexposure to sunlight can cause the colour of your furniture to fade and this effect is irreversible. Having curtains or blinds can protect your furniture from being damaged by the sunlight.
If you are the type that wants natural light in your home, blinds for example can easily be tilted, so that you can control the amount of light entering the room. On the other hand, curtains can help in reducing the noise from the outside, especially if you live in a highly dense area.
3. Elevate the aesthetic of your home
Window blinds and curtains do not have to be ugly and in fact, can be used to add to the aesthetic and design of your home. When you are considering the interior of your first home, do take into account how you can incorporate curtains and blinds to pull the whole look together.
There are various types of curtains and blinds available for your choosing and they also play different roles depending on what you need for that specific room or area. Now there’s also a premium type of snake ripple fold curtain tracks for your selection that produces a wave curtain that can instantly transform your window. They can also be customized to accommodate the size of your room and any other specifications that you need.
