Choose the right window coverings for each space
No two rooms in your home are the same and each room requires a different type of window decoration. The most important question is: what requirements must the window decoration meet in the room in which it will be hung? In the bathroom for example, it is important to choose a window covering that can survive the occasional splash of water. Take for example our Aqualine shutters: produced entirely from high-quality plastic material, making them the ideal window decoration for the damp environment of a bathroom.
For a nursery or children’s room, the first requirement is a child-safe window decoration. Child safety is high on the agenda for all JASNO window decorations. In 2016, we introduced the child safe JASNO hanger system. The system comprises a mechanism that cuts through the chain if pressure is applied to the loop. This removes the risk of strangulation. This hanger, fitted as standard on all our wooden blinds with mono command eradicates the risk of strangulation.
In the kitchen, we recommend a window decoration from which splashes of grease and water can be easily removed. But here, too, you wish to retain your privacy. Who wants to have passers-by as it were eat the food from their plates, with their eyes? Shutters are the perfect candidate for the kitchen. If you opt for shutters with a divider rail, you even have the option to operate the top and bottom louvre sections separately. Leave the top louvers open for incoming light and close the bottom section to protect the room from prying eyes.
In a room dominated by concrete walls or little furniture, you want a window decoration that improves the acoustic quality. Why not choose wooden shutters in combination with fabric curtains? The best combination is curtains with a double fabric layer, to absorb as much sound as possible.
