Importance of Natural Light and how Window Coverings Makes the Difference

Blinds, Shades and Drapery is not just about “Covering” your windows – it can have a big impact on your mental health, productivity and well-being

Numerous studies have already proven the direct correlation between natural light and a person mental well-being and productivity.  Therefore, window coverings, Blinds, Shades, Drapery and Shutters, should never be an afterthought in any home renovation project.  It not about “just covering your windows”.  With that mindset, one would gravitate toward the lowest common denominator (i.e. lowest price), resulting in selecting products that are difficult to operate (therefore you just leave it in one setting), do not protect your floor and furnishings from harmful UV, and limits the benefits of natural light and preserving outside views.

At Trendy Blinds & Closets, we conduct a quick need assessment when you come to our showroom and then recommend different products to suit your needs and budget. Put in at least 20-30 minutes of your time during your first visit to our showrooms and then end results for your home windows will be something you will enjoy using and looking at for many years to come.

Window Coverings for high-rise Condos do not have to be boring

Our Trendy Blinds client decided to add a more interesting and trendy touch to their condo windows when the downsized from a house to their condo penthouse unit.

For the kitchen and master bedroom they decided to use our sleek, flat fabric dual combi blind system that can be adjusted to open and shut for outside viewing or privacy.  Semi-opaque fabric choice allows filtered light in to provide a comfortable glowing ambience during the day and give visual privacy at night.



For their grown up daughter’s room they chose our pleated combi II product with a semi-opaque metallic white fabric that matches well with the mirror lighting in this room and gives a subtle “bling, bling” look for her to impress her friends.Image

For the living room, the inspired choice of selecting our Lindsay style semi-custom drapery in satin lining gave a warmer yet formal feel to the room without the heavy look of blackout drapery.  Daytime sunlight can softly filter into the room.
