Great blinds for your living room
Whether you are curling up on the sofa with a good book, entertaining the kids or socialising with friends, creating the perfect ambience in your living room can go a long way to improving how usable the room is. As such, it’s important to decorate the room in a style which not only suits your tastes, but also improves privacy levels and light control inside.
No matter what style of window you have, choosing a new set of blinds is a cost-effective way of instantly updating the look of your home, without the hefty cost of completely renovating. This article will give you a few ideas on how to choose the ideal blinds for your living room to help improve the style and functionality of the space.
1. Warm and welcoming
Whether you have arrived home after a long day at work or you are having friends over, your living room must be a cosy, inviting space for visitors and yourself to enjoy. To achieve this desired effect, Roman blinds can feature a thermal lining for improved insulation and are available in a range of fabrics, textures and patterns to create a warmer look.
Despite once being considered a luxury, Venetian blinds have become far more accessible in recent years whilst maintaining their sleek, glossy look. As well as giving you complete control over how much natural light filters into the room, Venetian blinds also give you the choice of complete privacy when the slats are shut.
Available in a range of colours, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect Venetian blinds to complement your living room decor, and their low maintenance qualities mean the blinds will keep their condition for many years to come.
The traditional style of a roller blind makes it one of the most popular styles for homeowners looking to update the look and functionality of their living room. Boasting flexible, durable qualities, roller blinds are designed to fit closely against the window, eliminating any excess material.
The versatility of the roller blinds we supply here at Kingston Blinds Direct means they are available in either dim-out form to reduce the amount of light filtering into the room, or can feature a blackout lining for complete privacy and darkness.
If you are looking to make a statement in your living room with a boldly coloured roller blind, Blockout Fuchsia from our blackout range or Palette Reflex Glacier Blue from our dim-out collection are ideal. Alternatively, if you would prefer a more subtle design to complement a neutral colour palette, our Atlantex Asc Dark Beige dim-out blind or Bella Hessian blackout blind are both great choices, depending on how much light you would like in the room.
4. Dressing large windows
Trying to find a new set of blinds to fit the large windows in your living room can be a rather challenging task. Vertical blinds are designed to sit snugly against your window without any excess or overlapping material, and a made-to-measure service will ensure the perfect fit tailored to your home. So, for an elegant, affordable way of dressing large windows, vertical blinds offer the ideal solution.
For a textured, wicker-like vertical blind to complement a natural colour scheme, Hudson Creme or Hudson Ecru from our vertical blinds range will suit this palette perfectly. Conversely, if you are looking for a bolder blind, then our Splash Canary or Midnight Shock vertical blinds range are better suited.
Many of our vertical blinds are also available in washable or wipe clean materials for superior convenience and low maintenance.
