When you step in any office, have you ever come across one that hangs a curtain over their windows? I have never! In practical, blinds is lasting, some comes with limited lifetime warranty, you do not have to wash them, only like dusting is needed, no headache choosing which one to buy, just choose which type you want and the colours.
It also provides good hide out for the house lizard. :D Btw, house lizard are not bad at all until your children eat their droppings... hehehe...they help to eat those unwanted insect that might bite your children!
