Every one of
us gets a little used to and tired of our surroundings once
in a while. As with clothing fashions and many other elements
of culture, the changes are often small and imperceptible
but after the passage of time we will suddenly notice that
our room decoration doesn’t look ‘up to date’.
This is likely to be because of a combination of changes
in a variety of different aspects of the room. For example
there may be general shift towards lighter colours and fewer
patterns. Also the style of the furniture in the room may
start to look a little behind the times. Flooring and carpets
are also subject to changes in style and preference. For
example in recent years there has been a move away from
rooms being fully carpeted to rooms having whole floor areas
of laminate flooring with rugs strategically placed.
There has also
been a move away from a single light source in the centre
of the room with one incandescent bulb towards the use of
many different types, styles, and designs of contemporary
light fittings and lamps.
The family television
is a prime example of a change in design in recent years.
The deep and wide, small television sets with curved glass
screens of the analogue era have been replaces by large,
flat screened digital TVs.

and white PVC framed. Where window coverings are concerned
there has also been a move away from heavy curtains toward
much lighter and more convenient options such as light curtains
or blinds. Vertical
blinds are now a popular choice for the modern home.
give elegant, clean lines to the window area. The 3.5”
or 5” vertical
blind slats are available in some 400 different colours
and a wide variety of finishes. This gives a huge degree
of adaptability and scope in terms of choosing blinds which
will fit in perfectly with modern room makeover. Vertical
blinds allow plenty of natural light into the room and
can be a key component of a contemporary room makeover.
