Design consultant Gary Gilbert has been in the business of window coverings and interior design for 21 years. He has happily spent the last six years working with 3 Day Blinds. “I’m not a desk person,” Gilbert says. “I love working with people in their homes. My job is to help my clients make their homes more beautiful and comfortable. I bring the showroom to them.”
Current Design Trends
The merchandising team at 3 Day Blinds keep the design consultants in the know on all things fashion and design. Recently, there has been a resurgence in grey color schemes. Greys can bring in light colored linen furniture or pieces that bring out a wow factor with pops of complementary colors.
Just a few years ago, people were filling their homes with lots of décor. That décor was normally very ornate. Today, less is more. Opening up a space and taking out some of the unnecessary pieces can be very liberating.
First Time Buying Window Treatments? No Problem!
Window treatments are a great way to make any room pop. They offer both function and beauty. It’s important to remember that insulation and temperature will help keep a home the perfect temperature. When looking for window treatments that provide great insulation, consider shutters, honeycomb/cellular shades, or drapery.
“There’s a lot of options out there for window treatments,” Gilbert says. “Let someone take care of the hard stuff for you. All of 3 Day Blinds design consultants are highly trained and will help you in making the process as easy as possible. From your ideas to installation, we’re going to take care of you.”
Designing for Children’s Rooms
Having kids is a pleasure, but finding a design solution that’s fashionable, functional and safe can be challenging. 3 Day Blinds works hard to ensure that a variety of their products are child safe, and these products have been certified “Best for Kids” by the Window Covering Safety Council. Design consultants can help determine which products fit into this category.
Help set the tone of your child’s room by choosing the appropriate color palette. Neutral colors such as white, beige or grey will work well as your child grows up. Using bright and vibrant colors conveys a sense of fun or charm. Color can also be used to calm, especially softer and more delicate colors.
Children can also be hard on things, however unintentional. When choosing window treatments, remember that durability should play a role in the decision. Like most things in your home, window treatments require cleaning, but harder surface window treatments such as horizontal blinds or shutters make cleaning a breeze.
Remember, your home is your space and should be a reflection of you. When looking at home décor options, seek companies that have been around for a long time and who have the selection to match. 3 Day Blinds has been in business for nearly 40 years and has quality products for any aesthetic.
“Wouldn’t it be nice to have one thing in your life that you know would be good for 10, 15 or even 20 years?” Gilbert says. “I think the answer is obvious. Quality wins every time.”
