The Perfect Basement Apartment

When we got married, my husband and I moved into a lovely brick home. Because we were young and in debt, we would have benefited from being able to rent out a portion of our home to tenants. Unfortunately, our home didn’t include a basement apartment. If your basement is currently not being used, consider transforming it into a basement apartment. Before renting it out to tenants, you will need to make sure it meets certain specifications. For example, most local governments require basement apartments to contain a certain amount of windows. Usually, you will also have to ensure that your windows meet size requirements. On this blog, you will discover how to create the perfect basement apartment with the right windows.

Have A Lot Of Windows And No Blinds? Do These Things And Order Now

If blinds are something that you need to invest in because you have sunlight coming in many windows throughout the day, causing glares and waking people up, take the time to find high-quality options. You want to find blinds that won't just look good, but that will also complement the interior of your home and have great function.

There are many blind retailers that offer blinds online, and all you have to do is measure your windows to find out what you need. Do these things when contemplating what blinds will be the best for you.

Try Some Swatches

Get some test swatches sent to your home. This allows you to see what they look like in person, if you are worried about a pattern or color shade, and also you can hold them up to the window and the sun to see how the color looks. This could save you from ordering a house full of custom blinds you won't end up using.

Consider Privacy

Choosing the right type of blinds for your needs may mean not putting the same type of blinds in your entire home. You may want to get blinds that have no openings for bathrooms or certain bedroom windows so there isn't a chance that someone could see through.

For other rooms, blinds that can easily be opened, put on an automatic timer, and that can be closed entirely when needed may be better. You will have to decide if you want an open space with lots of natural light or a space that is more private and enclosed by the blinds.

Set a Budget

Set a budget for the blinds. You have to figure out what you can spend before choosing the style of the blinds that will work best for you and your budget. If you want blinds that you can control from your phone or on a timer control center in your home, this will cost more. Consider this an investment in the property, as these are adding value to the interior of the home.

Take the time to make sure that you are measuring the spaces for the blinds properly before you order so you are sure that you are getting the blinds that you need. If you know that you need to get some window blinds for privacy, to help with décor, and to keep out the light, take the time to find the most affordable and practical options that will look good in your space.
