Pleated Combi Shades Wine Color - Lucena City Project

One of our client is blessed to have a vacation house in Lucena city, Quezon province.  A small vacation property to accommodate their family's holiday vacations and to be away from the busy life of urban living in Metro Manila.  They use to prefer curtains as window cover however they realized later on that whenever they arrive at their vacation house dust already accumulated in their curtains.

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.

Curtains and draperies require diligent maintenance, ideally should be replaced and put to laundry after a week or two due to settling of dust.  Mosquitoes and other insects sometimes also lurks on it.  So for houses that are always empty like when residents are frequently away, curtains are not actually advisable unless you have a full-time care taker of the house.

Venetian vs Roller Blinds for Executive Offices

Executives are usually business persons with senior job roles and responsibilities in a business organization like the president, vice-presidents or senior managers. They are usually the ones that get those precious corner offices with nice outside views.  Executive offices are also the rooms where important business meetings and business transactions takes place that is why it is important that it is presentable and impressive in terms of interior design.

For this blog we'll be featuring the mini blinds and the roller blinds and their major differences along with some sample photos in case you're deciding which ones to get for your office or your boss' office.

Monochromatic office theme using mini blinds

As seen in the photos, mini blinds can cover even wide and big windows for executive offices. Some executives prefer non-distracting and very simple monochromatic colors to be able to maintain their focus and alertness. The good thing about these types of blinds is that it has a very wide array of colors compared to, say, roller blinds to match walls, furniture, and other objects' colors. The only downside is that when it is closed, you can't really see outside view unless you purchase the perforated mini blinds type.

How To Divide Living Room and Dining Area for Small Spaces

Most homes and condominium today have small spaces that’s why you just don’t always have the luxury of extra square footage to create separate distinct areas, so it’s important to be creative in dividing your place within the limited space available. The open space concept for the living room and dining areas is one of the most popular design layout for small home like for our client. However, most of us would still love to have privacy in some occasions and open space concept doesn’t grant that unless you add something that can temporarily provide division for your living room and dining area base on your preferences or occasion.

A lot of things can be used as temporary divider, but the smartest option is to use a PVC folding door with its easy maneuverability and great functions. PVC folding door is known as one of the best solution when it comes to enclosing small room or area that are important to save space like bathrooms, stockroom or any room with limited space.  It’s also a great choice as a temporary divider because it can be moved to the side if it’s not needed like what our client required in their living room.
