Blinds or Curtains?!

Blinds Vs. Curtains? Which do you prefer? 

I use to always prefer blinds to curtains, and I'm not sure why? Maybe it was because I always associated curtains with grandma's house, which wasn't very stylish. However, lately I have been drawn to curtains, and the many design possibilities that come with them. So lets get into it, because both have their pros and cons. 

While blinds tend to be more affordable and precise in light control, curtains can add instant style as well as fun textures to any space. But then again who doesn't like good black out blinds for when your hung over and need to sleep. Anyone who has ever been to Las Vegas, knows what I'm talking about! Blinds are usually easier to clean, but tend to need cleaning more often. However, Curtains can be changed more frequently than blinds, which makes curtains appealing to someone like me, who is always switching up their home decor. 

We currently have dated wood blinds that are super heavy and hard to pull up. They came with the house, and I was hoping to replace them with some modern blinds, but now I think I'm leaning towards curtains, with either gold, black or wood curtain rods. Or maybe a combination of a few throughout the house. Who knows, the possibilities are endless! 

So  what do you prefer, blinds or curtains? Have a look below for some pictorial examples of each option and let me know what you think!
