What you need to know about your choice of blinds

When it comes to adding accessories to your house, blind should be the first thing you should think about. There are a couple of reasons for this, the first being that these accessories are visible from both in side and outside the house so getting the right ones is a crucial decision. Secondly you have to match the interior of your house thinking about colour style design and pattern, and making sure they complement each other, and when they do they look great!

The Roller Blind!

Of the five types of blinds let’s start, first, with the most used style of blind in the UK, the Roller Blinds! The roller blinds have been around since the 1700’s and they have been popular ever since. They are a simple design and tend to complement every type of décor as the designs are easily changed and can be updated as regularly as they need to be. As their name suggests these blinds hang from a roller and with help from a beaded cord are unrolled and fill the space of the window.

Secondly we have the Roman blinds, these are usually made of thicker fabrics and are used for a more private room but still have a nice stylish look about them, and although they don’t suit all rooms they are often used in bedrooms and conservatories. They are formed of slats that can be lowered one by one allowing you to restrict the amount of light in the room.

Looking Classy With The Shutters

Thirdly we have the classic shutter blinds, these blinds offer a more ridged shape and although the look off them is stylish they don’t offer as much adjustability as other types of blinds. Shutter blinds tend to suit properties on quite country roads or ones that are older, although if the decor in the room suits it these can be a great addition to many homes.

The fourth type of blind is the vertical blind, these are often found in family homes and are mostly used in bed rooms and front rooms. This is because they are easy to maintain and are very versatile. They often come in block colours although, sometimes, patterned vertical blinds offer a refreshing twist to a child’s room. The reason they are so versatile is because they twist vertically allowing and restricting light at the pull of a cord as well as shifting across the window to open the window up completely as the tidily sit at the side of the frame.

Its All In The Control

Finally the fifth type of blind are the venetian blinds that are comprised of slats and offer great flexibility and are easily adjusted for full control of the amount of natural light that is let in to the room. These also offer great privacy because of the individual slat that allow you to move them in the exact way you would like. Because of their versatility they can be used in a variety of different rooms with different décor and they come in a extensive selection of styles from wooden to aluminium from black to white.
