Focus Blinds: 5 Tips To Choosing Blinds

Every home is as unique as the people who live in it and adding blinds to the interior offers homeowners the opportunity to express their individuality and create a look that is both aesthetically pleasing and practical.

Window blinds can be fitted either as the main window treatment, which complements a more modern minimalist look or used as a secondary treatment that allows you to layer your window dressing to blend with a more elegant or classic setting.

Blinds not only enhance the décor but are an ideal way to control light and privacy.

Window blinds can be fitted either as the main window treatment, which complements a more modern minimalist look or used as a secondary treatment that allows you to layer your window dressing to blend with a more elegant or classic setting.

When selecting your blinds, make sure they harmonise with your interior and meet your practical needs.

Here we share some points to consider when choosing blinds…

1. Dealing with street lighting or morning sunlight

If you have to contend with street lights or glaring morning sunlight you should consider block out blinds.

These are made from a fabric with special light reflective properties that block out strong morning sunlight or night lights that may disturb your sleep.

A slat structure of venetian blinds provides complete light control. You can alter the angle of the blind slats to suit the time of day, the level of light control and even the ambience of a room.

2. Limited wall space

Roller blindswork well for homes with limited wall space. These roll up tightly at the top of the window, allowing you to make the most of sunlight during the day.

A roller blind can be fitted neatly into the window recess, providing maximum space around the window and not interfering with other window treatments.

3. Screen glare and furniture damage from sunlight

To avoid damage to furniture from harsh sun rays consider vertical blinds.

These are ideal for controlling sunlight and privacy, and they can be opened to the left, right or split in the middle.

When opened, they stack to the side of your window, offering an uncluttered look and they suit very large windows.

4. Window coverage

A slat structure of venetian blinds provides complete light control.

You can alter the angle of the blind slats to suit the time of day, the level of light control and even the ambience of a room.

These blinds allow for absolute privacy when closed and maximum daylight when opened.

5. Luxurious window treatments

Roman blinds add both elegance and style with a contemporary feel.

When raised, the gentle folds are neat and, when lowered, the flat panel effect makes for a chic clean window treatment.

Woven-wood Roman blinds can flatter the proportions of a small window, especially if the blind is measured to fit a little higher above the window opening and a little wider than normal to give extra width to the window dimensions.
