What type of blind is right for me?

Our aim is to help you choose the right blind solution for your windows. Blinds offer a huge range of solutions making then an incredibly versatile window treatment. Here are some things to consider in choosing the right type of blind:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Functionality

It’s time to be practical! A starting point is always to think about the environment and type of window you have.  Do you have a recess, sash or uPVC window as these often lend themselves to different blind treatments.  Also think about the room the blind will be going in and the functionality of the blind. Does the blind need to offer some privacy? Be blackout or versatile to offer shading at certain times of the day? With more of us working from home does the blind need to stop reflection of your computer screen in your home office? Answers to these questions should narrow down the right type of blind for your requirements.

  1. Style and Colour

then it comes down to the style of your home and the overall look you are trying to create. Do you want a contemporary blind or are you looking for something more traditional? Do you want the blind to sit within a window or door recess or be on the outside? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Budget

there are often several price options to choose from for your blind. For example, you may wish to go for a ready-made roller blind in a standard size rather than a bespoke made to measure blind. Perhaps you’d prefer a chain mechanism or the convenience of a motorised blind? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Roller Blinds

  • They offer a simple, minimal look ideal for a modern interior.
  • They are versatile and available in a wide range of colours, designs and finishes:
    • Sheers / voile finishes are great to offer some sun shading and privacy.
    • Blackout finishes are great for bedrooms, particularly children’s rooms in the summer!
    • Water resistant finishes are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
    • Daylight finishes are great for living areas allowing light to come in but offering some privacy.
  • Layering – roller blinds are also great for creating a layered look using a roller blind for practicality (sun protection or blackout) and adding curtains or a roman blind to soften the interior.
  • Offer the greatest amount of light into the room as they don’t take up much room when open.
  • Easy to install.
  • Can be motorised.

We offer a wide range of made to measure roller blinds made to your exact size for a perfect fit!

Our online roller blind range only represents a small proportion of the full portfolio of fabrics we can offer.  If you can’t find what you are looking for then give us a call or drop us an email to talk through your brief.  Our team of experts can find the perfect fabric and arrange for fabric swatches to be sent for you to review at home.

Roman Blinds

  • These bring an air of warmth and style to a room but don’t take up as much room as curtains.
  • They look fabulous with curtains for a layered look.
  • You may wish to co-ordinate your roman blind at one window with curtains in the same fabric at another window.
  • If you have a radiator underneath a windowsill you may wish to consider a roman blind instead of, or as well as dress curtains so you don’t lose the heat when the curtains are closed.
  • They also work well layered with a roller blind.  You position a roller blind inside your window recess to offer privacy or some blackout properties, with a softer, more relaxed roman blind outside the recess.
  • Most curtain fabrics are also suitable for roman blinds so can co-ordinate with your other soft furnishings.
  • Easy to install.
  • Can me motorised.

We offer a made to measure roman blind service.  Please read our blog post for more information on how we make up our roman blinds.

With luxury fabrics available from all the top brands and using only the highest quality hand stitching techniques for all our made to measure roman blinds, It’s our aim to bring the quality of the independent soft furnishers to you directly in your home.

By using our web site and working remotely to specify and select products, we are able to keep our costs as low as possible.  So we hope you agree, you really can afford the beautiful roman blinds you always wanted.

We can give advice and recommendations on fabrics selections then send samples for you to review, so please get in touch to discuss your project with us.
