My house on the fifteenth floor!
I had been living in low houses for most part of my life and so when we were just about to move into our fifteenth floor apartment in the city prime area, I was not just excited but I was overwhelmed! The idea that I had never stayed at such heights made me a bit apprehensive. I didn’t have fear of heights but I was really scared that the kids were prone to climbing furniture near the windows and it definitely did not help that the windows were not fixed with grills.
No furniture high enough:
The trick that we used to allay our fears was that we used furniture that was low in height and that did not help the kids raise themselves to the level of the window panels. Also, we resisted the idea of keeping any furniture piece near to the windows and the French windows.
Safety looked into, but aesthetics?
Even though the layout of the apartment was excessively good and the positioning of the rooms and the amentias were world class, we could feel an incompleteness as the day of shifting in was nearing. There was everything from the best of furniture’s to the best interior designer and the best floor and the lights and fixtures, but of course there was something missing.
I love to be able to see the sky from where I am sitting and where I lie down. So, we had planned to keep the windows bare. But as the days to shift in were nearing, we were getting anxious because the some element was missing and we were not really able to single out what.
Pick up Some Cute and Classy Home Décor Artifacts
I was casually browsing the internet to pick up some cute and classy home décor artifacts when my eyes fell on a website link. The article led me to a site where the site https:www.makemyblinds.co.uk/pink-blinds.html was being reviewed. I followed the link and came to the site where I saw some of the best dressed windows. I instantly knew what it was that we were missing. I called up these people to fix an appointment and without wasting too much time they came in with their catalogues and swatch collection.
I have never experimented with the blinds:
I must confess that I have changed five houses in my forty years but not even once have I ever given a thought of having blinds in the house. A couple of houses were those that already had blinds fitted in them but I dare say that I may have drawn them even once in my years of stay in them!
So, here I simply loved the bare window and the sights that lay outside it but was still thinking what a world of difference having blinds on them would make.
Because I was not so sure, I decided to go slow:
I did not want to hurry into this especially because it would have hurt the pocket if the look did not turn out agreeable. I am extremely fussy and even if I would have spent a fortune getting something and I would have realized that it was not working for me I would not hesitate even for a minute to remove it and shove it aside. So, it made sense to go slow.
I decided that the extra room that was facing the west would need to go under the examination table. The room was kept without any furniture except for a large bookshelf that was attached to the side walls and a couple of cozy armchairs and bean bags. The chairs were only kept casually and in no particular order. The room was to double up as a library or a study whenever there was going to be a need.
So, we opted for a soft pink color polyurethane blinds that could be drawn and raised. The pink colour complemented the lilac carpet and the dark walnut shade of bookshelf. To my surprise the room started looking cooler and classier than before. I got some indoor plants that looked great under the blinds
There was a considerable reduction of the noise from the traffic below even though I thought that traffic noise never reached that high; but it did! The blinds also helped cut down on the sharp rays of the setting sun and also saved the furniture form fading in the sharp sunlight.
I am so glad that I experimented with blinds. Surely, I made sure that I used blinds throughout the house; it transformed the way the house looked and gave a positive vibe to the rooms.
