Advice on finding that perfect solution

With the summer on its way, it becomes extremely important to 'shelter' the house from the sun with efficient blinds or curtains.
And indoor blinds or curtains can also be an excellent furnishing item, decorating the ambiance and creating wonderful light effects in the different rooms.

If there is plenty of room to manoeuvre, track-mounted curtains may be a good choice

The fabrics run horizontally on metal tracks, opening and closing manually.

Before buying, it is a good idea to find out just what is the best option for your house, from the fitting method to the different fabrics and colours available on the market. To understand whether you are better off with a ceiling mount, wall mount or alternatively fitting curtains straight onto windows, it is important to have a clear idea of available space.
The first thing to do, before opting for any of the installation systems, is to measure and evaluate the space required as accurately as possible.
If there is plenty of room to manoeuvre, track-mounted curtains may be a good choice: the fabrics – soft or panelled – run horizontally on metal tracks, opening and closing manually.
Fabric Roman blinds on the other hand, hook up to a rod fastened to the wall or ceiling, pulling upwards with a specific operation involving cords and counterweights.
In this case too, we can use more rigid or more flexible fabrics, depending on whether we are looking to adapt the blinds to a classic or modern furnishing style.
In pole systems, the rings to which the curtain is attached run on cylinders of various different materials (steel, wood, iron), fastened to the wall.
Best matched to classic and country furnishing styles.

If windows are in a relatively small room, or if there is little space available (such as in the kitchen, for example), a small rod is fitted to the window, to which the curtain is then hooked.
