Buying Guide: What Blinds to Have in Which Rooms?

Blinds are one of those items that can magically transform the appearance of a room. In addition to being functional, blinds are great for complementing the existing decoration of your home, and can add a fantastic finishing touch to any space. However, how can you go about choosing the right type of blinds for each room?

Bedroom blinds

To choose the right blinds for your bedroom, think about the features that make you feel more comfortable. Is it more privacy that you want or perhaps you rest better when no light is coming into the room? If this is the case, you may want to go for roman blinds with an extra-thick lining. Roman blinds are also incredibly versatile, so whether your bedroom is decorated in a classic or modern style, chances are that you will find a roman blind that is perfect for you. Alternatively, you may want to go for blackout roller blinds, which can be fitted behind your curtains for better performance.

Kitchen blinds

Every day, kitchens are subject to high levels of humidity, which means you need to avoid blinds made with fabric, as these will soak up all the moisture and smells. In terms of materials, the best choices are wood (perfect if you have a country or rustic-style kitchen) and metal (which has a long life span). As for the blind style, the main thing to look out for is practicality, so you want to go for Venetian, vertical or roller blinds with a waterproof treatment.

Living room blinds

Being one of the most used spaces in any house, living rooms require extra warmth and cosiness. Some useful ideas include fitting your living room with daylight roller blinds, which maximise the amount of natural light that comes in as well as introducing curtains of your choice for added warmth and comfort. If you live in a cold area, consider installing thermal blinds.

Conservatory blinds

Blinds are the ultimate furnishing for any conservatory. Roof blinds are perfect for this room, as they are both stylish and functional in addition to being easy to customise and install.
