To avoid this maintenance issues, they purchased pleated combi shades with wine color since blinds and shades in general are easier to clean and maintain. Compared to curtains, blinds and shades have a smaller surface area where dust and insects can stick. It is also generally easier to clean by just using small vacuum cleaner or wet damp cloth.
In terms of colors, our client chose a darker color i.e. wine color that will contrast the white wall and light colored furniture. They also chose the pleated type as opposed to the plain ones to give more character and thickness to combi shades fabric. It also effectively blocks about 95% of sunlight so that when the owners wants to lessen the glare in their television or computer monitors in the room, they can simply pull the cord to close the blinds.
