Patterned Blinds: The Dos and Don’ts
From bold, striking patterns, to more subtle, elegant designs, more and more homeowners are choosing to incorporate patterned blinds into their interior design. Finding the perfect pattern to suit your home can be rather challenging, without creating a look that is too gaudy or boring. In this article, we will discuss the dos and don’ts when it comes to patterned blinds, so you can find a design which complements your home seamlessly.
Different types of pattern
Depending on your requirements, the pattern of the blind itself can either provide a subtle backdrop or become the focal feature in your room. Whether you are searching for a striking look, or would rather something a bit more understated, there are a plethora of different pattern types available for you to choose from.
The floral-patterned blinds we offer here at Kingston Blinds Direct make a quaint, charming contribution to any room, for a look which can be partnered with stripes, checks or vintage designs. For a subtle floral design which won’t overwhelm the room, why not try our Charlotte Cream roller blind? Alternatively, you could opt for a slightly bolder design with our Orla Kiely-inspired Kara Chocolate roller blind.
A striped blind offers a timeless design which suits both modern and traditional homes. Whether you choose to go for neutral colours, such as our Lola Bolero roller blind, or brighter, bolder shades such as the blue tones featured on our Palazzo Santorini roller blind, we have a range of designs to suit your decor.
From contemporary chevrons for modern homes to trellis prints for more traditional decor, geometric designs are another popular choice for patterned blinds.
Matching patterns and colours with room accessories and furniture
Prior to purchasing patterned blinds, you must carefully consider the accessories and furniture currently in the room. Whether you want your new blinds to complement or contrast with your existing decor, it’s important to take a look at the prints and patterns in your room to see what will work best.
If your room is decorated with neutral colours, incorporating bold, patterned blinds will stand out well against the subtle backdrop, making a statement in the room. Alternatively, you may decide to opt for blinds with a neutral colour palette – such as the Berkley or Cleo Cream roller blinds from our range – if the rest of your room is rather colourful.
Incorrect use of patterned blinds
Choosing a large or overbearing pattern on your blinds will make the room seem smaller than it actually is. Matching a bold pattern to a room can be a rather difficult task, so you must carefully consider the decor of your room and the look you are trying to achieve before making any decisions; you don’t want the pattern to look too garish. Similarly, you don’t want to choose a neutral pattern that is so subtle it is underwhelming and doesn’t fit with your requirements.
