  1. The effort and time you can put into cleaning and maintaining your blinds, does play a major role. If you are extremely busy and cannot spend a lot of time in blind maintenance, you may want to go in for the standard window blinds. These types of blinds can be cleaned with ease at home. However, remember that the standard blinds need frequent attention, as they can also attract a lot of dust. You can install shades with a lot of weaves in textured fabrics that has the ability to hide soil better. These shades require periodical vacuuming and cleaning by professional cleaners.
