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.
