Cleaning Window Blinds Made Easy

Window blinds are practical and effective solutions to light control and privacy, but cleaning them properly can be a herculean task. Dust easily gathers on blinds just as it settles on an other surface, but with Mobel’s helpful tips and tricks, you can easily take away the stress of cleaning your window blinds.

 Venetian Blinds: The horizontal slats on the Venetian blinds gather dust easily. Because of this, the Venetian blinds can at times be off-putting. In spite of all this, there is an easy solution to the weekly cleaning of the blinds which will take very little of your time. There are two simple ways of getting it done. First, keep the blinds open so that the slats are parallel to each other. Take a piece of an old cloth or a duster and gently wipe across each slat to remove the dust. Second, if your vacuum cleaner has an upholstery tool or attachment, you can use it to gently clean the slats without even opening the blinds. But while doing so make sure that the suction power of the vacuum is turned low so that you accidentally don’t pull the slats out of shape.

Vertical Blinds: Unlike the Venetian blinds, these window blinds doesn’t require a huge amount of cleaning. For weekly cleaning of the blinds, close the blinds so that all the slats flatten out making the surface uniform for cleaning. You can then easily wipe the flattened slats with a soft cloth or duster. But remember, while doing so don’t exert much force on the blinds lest they bend or break. When you are done cleaning one side, simply flip the blinds rounds and repeat the process.

It is recommended that you go for a deeper cleaning once every year. To do so, simply leave the blinds soaked in mild detergent for 10-15mins and then wash them under running water. Dry them outdoors. That way you can dry the vertical blinds without marking or creasing.

2-4-2016-2

Roller Blinds: Another kind of blinds which is relatively easier to clean is the Roller blinds. Before picking up that duster, roll the blind all the way down and then gently wipe them using the duster or simply with a piece of cloth. Sometimes you tend to stain your blinds, but you can easily get rid of those stains by dabbing in some gentle liquid detergent on the affected area. Damp a cloth and wash the detergent off. But before doing so, check with your supplier if the type of fabric used for the blind, supports washing liquid.

• Traditional: To achieve the traditional look, you need to choose furniture that looks ornate and elegant. Traditional Furniture are more formal and includes features such as ornately rolled arms, skirted bottoms and overall curved outlines.

Coffee tables and other occasional tables which are movable also create a congenital atmosphere since you know that there’s always a place nearby to keep a vase, a lamp or merely to keep your drink.

Dining Room Layout Basics

Dining spaces in any home needs special focus in terms of its décor since it’s that special place were your friends and family gather together for meals and bonding. Apart from being very comfortable, the space also needs to reflect a certain character and style. MoBEL tells you all that you need to know about Dining Room Layout Basics.

Dining Room Layout Design – The Basic Measurements

Dining spaces can be either of the two forms – a separate room for dining or a designated area in the living room that’s set up as the dining space. The basic measurement tips are as follows:

Dining-Room-Layout-Design

  • Ideal space to maintain between the dining table and wall or the next piece of furniture, that would make the dining arealook spacious and comfortably set out, is 42 – 48 inches. If space is less, atleast 36 inches needs to be maintained so that people can move in and out of their chairs easily.
  • Table space per person required to be maintained for him / her to have the meal comfortably is 24 – 30 inches.
  • If you need to seat more number of guests for particular occasions, a better idea is to arrange for having smaller tables around rather than going for a bigger dining table.

 

Dining-Room-Layout

Large Dining Room Layout Basics:

Large dining spaces give you more flexibility in terms of the scope of choosing the Interior Décor style you want. Your furniture, their style and sizes, accessories would all depend on the décor style chosen. The layout basics are as follows:

  • The first step is to choose the dining room interior style fromTraditional, Modern and contemporary, depending on what suits your remaining home décor the most.
  • For the right furniture arrangement, one needs to start by placing the dining table in the centre and then placing all other furniture around it. In case of a separate dining room, place the dining table in the centre of the room, while in case of a combined living & dining room space, center the dining table under a lighting element.
  • Popular dining table shapes for large dining rooms are round, oval or rectangular. Once the dining table is placed, arrange all other furniture such as chairs, sideboards, etc around it maintaining the basic measurement tips given above. Avoid having round tables for seating more than 6 people. For a round table with that wide a diameter, it makes conversations pretty inconvenient.
  • If you still have space, throw in some more furniture that are either decorative accessories or have storage space for your cutlery, napkins and other dining essentials.

Small Dining room Layout Basics:

Layout options for small dining rooms are not much and the challenge lies in giving a more open and spacious look and appeal to the space. Some tips that one can follow include:

  • Have a small rectangular dining table that has an extended removable leaf. This would allow you to keep your dining space open and airy at all times while you can still seat more people by using the leaf extension when you want.
  • Seating around the table for daily living should be maximum of 2 – 4. Store your extra dining chairs all throughout the house which you can use when needed for larger gatherings.
  • Dining chairs for small dining rooms should always be armless so as to give the space a less crowded feel.
  • A round pedestal dining table also looks good in a small dining space since it makes the perimeter of your dining room / space look larger.
  • Place and arrange your accessories intelligently that takes up the least amount of space but still looks good. For example, display your favourite china not in a cabinet but on neat wall shelves. Not only will it gain you floor space but would provide a stylish visual interest to your dining space.
