There’s no place like home, so why not celebrate it? The 2017 Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo celebrates its 24th year with the theme “A Tribute to Your Home”.
At the Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo is where you’ll find inspiration, advice, great new ideas, and thousands of products – everything you need to show love to your home, and those who live in it.
So what really makes a home?
Is it that brand new fluffy rug you’ve just bought? Or the stunning set of eclectic scatter cushions you’ve adorned your sofa with?
Or… could it be your new blinds?
We’ve been exploring how blinds can turn your house from a structure that keeps all your valuables, into a home.
How can just one element like blinds can make that much of a difference to your home?
Well, your choice in blinds should always start with functionality – that is what do you need from your window covering. Often as homeowners we look for things like:
- Heat and light management
- Furniture protection
Not surprisingly, these are the things that help make a house a home; we can see that blinds are an important part to creating a homely space.
For instance your wood venetian blinds offer you a full view when open and maximum privacy when closed. At the same time motorised blinds let you manage the amount of heat and light entering a space with the simple press of a button.
An all rounder is the Sheerweave blind, which has light filtering fabric that gently lets heat and light into your space while offering a degree of furniture protection and privacy.
So, depending on what you define as homely, you can achieve it by choosing the right kind of blind… meaning that ultimately, your blinds make your home.
At this year’s Home maker’s expo our distributor Blind Rage, will be showing off some of our products be sure to visit their stand!
