How to choose the perfect blind
Blinds are a great way to control light, set the mood, maintain privacy and they are ideal for simple clean living spaces. But how do you select the right blind for your home?
When choosing blinds, a few things to consider are colour, style, texture and length. Or, if you need some help, contact our in-home custom blinds service.
Vertical blinds are the answer for large spaces
Vertical blinds are perfect for wide windows, bi-fold and sliding glass doors, or entrances to outdoor areas. This is because they stack to the side rather than bunch up at the top of the window. Before you install, a good tip is to choose a similar colour to the window trim in the room.
Increase your privacy with roller blinds
Roller blinds are an ideal solution if you need a blackout option as well as the ability to block out noisy neighbours. They are also effective for houses that are exposed to the winter chill, because they don’t have gaps that cold air can get through.
Easy to install and clean, they are also tamper free so little fingers can’t get jammed in them. Roller blinds come in a range of colours and textures, making them a great choice for families of all ages.
Add space to your rooms with roman blinds
Roman blinds lie flat against windows and are generally made from softer fabrics. For this reason, they aren’t suitable for rooms that attract dampness, like bathrooms. Roman blinds can create the illusion of space if installed a little higher above your windows. This will extend your room by giving the impression of windows that reach from floor to ceiling. It will also make smaller windows seem larger.
There’s a venetian blind for every room in your home
Whether your style is country farmhouse or ultra modern, there’s a venetian blind that will make your room look great. Choose from a variety of colours, materials and textures including aluminium, timber or PVC. Not only are venetian blinds easy to install, they are low maintenance and easy to clean.
Bring warmth to your home with matchstick blinds
Perfect for rooms with modern furnishings, matchstick blinds help to create a warm and inviting feel in any interior living space. Available in a range of textures such as grasses, reeds and bamboo, they are soft to touch and add a luxurious feel to a room. Install them in a few simple steps and then add lining to the back of the blind for more light control and privacy.
