Home décor without curtains is something next to impossible. But in the recent time window blinds have also made their way to the windows when it came to home décor. And thus the debate starts whether curtains or blinds are the better pick. One thing is for certain curtains are much easier to maintain than the blinds. Since curtains are made of lighter material they can also be cleaned easily either by hand wash or by machine wash.
On the other hand blinds attract a large amount of dust particles and pollens. Cleaning of the blinds is a time consuming process. That is why it is difficult to maintain blinds.
