Myth #2: They are difficult to clean

This misconception may frighten the health-conscious; nevertheless, easy-to-maintain blinds are available. It all depends on the type of material! The majority of bespoke blinds on the market are simple to maintain; all you have to do is wipe gently or scrub-wipe them twice a week.

 

Myth #3: They are short-lived and readily breakable

This is another blinds myth that continues to resurface across home owners and buyers. The material used in blinds determines how long they will last. Aluminium, wood, and imitation wood blinds, for example, are quite sturdy and may endure for many years.
