So, if blinds and curtains are both great, how do I choose?
There are a few questions you can ask yourself that will help you decide between blinds and curtains.

What look are you going for?
It really depends on the mood that you are trying to create. Do you want clean modern lines? Or a cozy, relaxed look? Do you want the room to feel cool and formal, or warm and welcoming?

What room are they going in?
Chances are, you are not going to want large billowy curtains in your kitchen. They could easily get stained and may even pose a fire hazard if they are too close to the stove. Likewise, you probably wouldn’t want to put blinds in a room prone to a lot of dust. Blinds tend to gather more dust as it is, so curtains would be a better choice because they are easier to keep clean.
