Choosing the best blinds for your room
Attention to detail when redecorating a room, or simply purchasing a new household item, is key to ensuring the mood of the room is apparent and that all features complement each other. The correct choice of blinds can create a modern look to any room, extending a contemporary feel throughout the house.
Whether you are searching for a statement feature or a traditional style, there is an extensive range of designs on the market today to match any of your requirements. Blinds deliver on both practicality and style, so this article will serve to explain the factors you need to consider when choosing the ideal set of blinds for your specifications.
Blinds are an effortlessly adjustable way of controlling the amount of light you would like to enter the room, leaving an unobstructed view when open. They are operated by a manual pull cord, wand or remote control so you have the option of deciding which method is easiest for you.
Simple to fit and even more straightforward to maintain, blinds can be used on their own or to complement the curtains already in place. The main popular choices of blinds are:
– Roller blinds. These are a practical, hard-wearing and cost-effective option available in a range of specially treated fabrics making them easy to maintain and keep clean.
– Blackout roller blinds. These are made from a thick material which completely prevents light from entering the room.
– Venetian blind. Known for their timeless and unique look, Venetian blinds are suitable for any type of window and are a practical, simple to operate choice, balancing style and functionality. They are available in both wood and aluminium so, depending on whether you are looking for a traditional or modern design, you can find a set of blinds to best suit your requirements.
– Roman blinds. If you are looking to achieve a sophisticated modern look, then Roman blinds are the ideal option for you. Available in either fabric or bamboo, the neat folds stack up evenly at the top of the window when being opened.
In terms of material, aluminium blinds tend to work best in modern rooms as they provide a sleeker, commercial look. For a more organic feel but without the price-tag of real wood, faux wood is a popular choice as it is not as susceptible to moisture, making it an ideal choice for bathrooms and kitchens where there is typically a humid atmosphere.
For those of you who would like a bold statement blind, it is usually best to consider whether you are aiming to keep the colour scheme of the room the same for the foreseeable future. If you are, go ahead with your brightly coloured or patterned blind and make it a talking-point feature in your room. If you are looking for a long-lasting traditional blind design which won’t become dated or put off potential buyers, then choose a neutral colour which complements the rest of the window area.
