For Blinds

SELECT DESIGN

Selecting Design for the customized Blind is quite simple.

It completes depends upon the individual taste to select the design, still, few below recommendations can be kept while finalizing the design:

  • Acclimation/Orientation
    The first essential step is to determine the orientation of the Blind. If your window is horizontal, choose only horizontal designs; for vertically oriented windows, go for vertical designs.Horizontal

    Vertical

  • Customized Blinds are theme-based, so we should be clear that what theme we want to project on our windows. If we are choosing blinds for the corridors/ galleries the outskirts designs could be selected. On other hands, if we choose a design for Meditation/ Yoga / Saloon area, design depicting peace like Buddha/ Waterfall, etc. can be preferred.
  • Theme color should be matching with the Room Walls. Design colors should be according to the color theme of the whole room.

MEASURE

Measurement of Windows Blinds for the first time is slightly complex.

Please note that wrong measurement of blinds can make it of no use, as  Blind of bigger size may not be fitted in the window, similarly, Blinds of Smaller Size will keep the open space to enter outer light/sun rays inside the room.

Hence it is very important our size of the Blinds are precise/accurate.

To measure the size accurately is easy if we keep following things in mind:

  • We have to measure in Inches Only.
  • We should always mount the Blinds on Windows Wall. Planning to mount the Blind within  Inner area of Window Frame should be avoided. Although Blinds can be mounted & measure for inner area but it required higher expertise.
  • Keep One – One  Inch extra for the Size for both Left & Right Side.
  • Keep Four Inches Extra for the Drop /Height of Window. (Note: As Blind is going to be roll-up and down so keeping extra inches in the drop will not create any problem in the size, but keeping unnecessary extra drop may hide the design of Blind.
  • If window width is more than 5 Feet than more than one blind should be planned with equal sizes. Single windows blind (customized)  has a limitation of with up to 5 Feet (i.e 60 Inches). Hence if the width of your window is 100 Inches, then Two Blinds 50 – 50 Inches can be planned ( with Single design, plotted half-half, two matching designs or Single design for both  blinds)

CARE

Wallpaper for walls, how to care for it :

  • It’s important to have a wallpaper care schedule every 2-3 weeks to keep them sparkling with freshness and radiance.
  • When using damp cloth or sponge, always squeeze out excess water and wipe in the direction of the seams/joints
  • Although our scratch-proof wallpaper is made from very tough and long-lasting materials and cannot be scrape easily, do not scrub too hard to remove any dust as you may inadvertently tear or damage it.
  • Do not use chemical-based detergents as they may damage the smooth surface finish.
  • Avoid colored cleaning solutions as they may cause the wallpaper to stain.

With your regular care and maintenance, the habit can make sure a long time better life of your decor, its space’s style, energy, and stability. So keep caring of it.

  1. Vacuum your wallpaper. The best thing you can do to keep the wall covering in most rooms looking pristine is the simplest: Vacuum it. A soft brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner works best—and is a must if the paper is flocked or has any kind of texture. Start at the top of the wall and work your way down, doing a couple of panels at a time. Be careful of cobwebs. Lift them up with the vacuum; if you try brushing them away, they may streak the wall. Depending on how dusty your house gets, dust every few months. A microfibre cloth on a long-handled sweeper or a clean white cloth wrapped on the end of broom will also work on flat, non-textured wall coverings.
  2. Clean delicate coverings with dough. Need to clean a stain off a fabric or reed wall covering? You can clean a covering that would be damaged by water using a special product called wallpaper dough, sold at paint stores and home centers. Take a handful of dough from the container, roll it into a ball, and then roll the ball across the wall covering to lift the dirt. When the dough gets dirty, knead the dirt into the center of the ball to expose a fresh surface.
  3. Test unique or textured wallpaper before washing it. Natural coverings— grass, reed, hemp, cork, leather, fabric—and uncoated wallpaper are easily damaged by water and cannot be washed. To find out if a wall covering is washable, squirt a little dishwashing liquid in water and dab some on the wall in an out-of-the-way spot. If the material darkens or absorbs water or if the colors run—the covering is not washable. Clean it with wallpaper dough.
  4.  Give your kitchen wallpaper an occasional wipe. In rooms where wall coverings are exposed to grease, steam, or active youngsters, dusting is not enough. A light washing every few months is in order. Luckily, the wall coverings used in such areas are usually waterproof sheet vinyl. Give them a quick swipe with a natural sponge dampened in water with a squirt of dishwashing liquid. Make sure that the sponge isn’t too wet—you don’t want the water to seep under the seams and loosen the covering. Also, be sure to clean from the bottom up; that way dirty water that you squeeze out of the sponge won’t flow down over the dirty areas and leave streaks. Even if the covering is labeled “scrubbable,” it’s best not to scrub hard or to use abrasive cleaners or strong household cleaners. Rinse with a sponge dampened in clean water. Pat dry with a towel. If the paper needs a second washing, let it dry thoroughly first.

Additional Tips-

  • For your hand protection use rubber gloves
  • Do not over-wet the wallpaper
  • Take care to keep water from soaking into Wallpaper seams
  • As possible remove the stain quickly.
