The timeless appeal of blinds
In recent years, especially in contemporary home design, the trend for using blinds in interior decorating has been increasing.
Blinds are popular for a two important reasons.
Firstly, they can be a key feature of a room, making a bold statement when covering your windows, for their impact on indoor lighting during the night or day. Alternatively, they can be neatly rolled away, allowing your view, natural light or warmth to be enjoyed to the fullest.
Secondly, blinds offer a great deal of flexibility in your control over amount of light and privacy at any time. The adjustable nature of blinds and wide availability in contemporary styles has made them an increasingly popular feature of interior design.

How to choose the right blinds
Deciding which blinds are right for your home can be daunting, especially when there are so many colours, textures and types of blinds to choose from, such as Soft Shades, Roller Blinds, Roman Blinds, Blockout Blinds, Gliding Blinds, Venetian Blinds, Aluminium Blinds, Timber Blinds, Pleated Blinds and Skylight solutions …
… But we are here to help. Here are our recommended top five considerations to help you get started:
Do you want to make a bold statement with window treatments, or do you want them to blend into the overall decor? This will help you to narrow down a style.
How much privacy do you need at each window’s aspect? Do you want total blockout or a ‘sunscreen’ style covering, which will still offer some of the outside view – but also means your neighbours can see in to some degree.
The sun’s rays can be damaging to floors and furniture. Too much sun can also make your home hot in the summer months. How much indoor shelter do you need?
4. Energy efficiency
The blinds you choose can have an impact on the energy efficiency of your home and your ability to keep a moderate, comfortable temperature inside.
5. Sustainable materials
Is it important for you to have sustainable fabric and materials in your blinds? If so, then some brands and ranges will use the eco-friendly supplies you’re looking for.
