How well dressed are your windows? Windows can be a key focal point in a room, so deserve just as much attention when it comes to interior design as the rest of your decor. One popular way of dressing your windows and improving their look is to use blinds.
Blinds come in a variety of designs and styles and can be used as an alternative to curtains, or alongside them to liven up your windows and add a decorative touch. They’re also beneficial for adding much needed privacy in a room, to add blackout abilities in bedrooms or to help prevent too much bright light coming into a room. Although there are a variety of different blind styles available, two of the popular styles for modern and contemporary homes are roller blinds and vertical blinds.
Whether your windows are large or small, roller blinds can be made to fit your space and are easy to operate and use.
These functional blinds are available in a wide variety of colours and designs and a really good way of creating a focal point in a room. Choose a blind colour that complements and tones in with your interior design scheme, or use your blinds to add colour and pattern to a room.
If you can’t find your perfect blind design, specialist blind companies now also offer the opportunity to design your own blinds.
If you have a favourite good quality digital photo, such as a favourite holiday view, a memorable beach, a landscape snap you love or a family picture, it can be uploaded and made into a blind featuring your design. This is a lovely way of totally personalising your blinds and making them unique to you.
Vertical blinds, as the name aptly describes, are designed to hang vertically, as opposed to the horizontal nature of roller blinds.
Vertical blinds work well on large windows or patio doors, where you want to add an element of privacy or help control the amount of light coming into a room. The blinds are fully adjustable, so you can alter the position of the blinds and tilt them to open them up more or less depending on your preference.
Like roller blinds, vertical blinds are available in a wide choice of designs, fabrics and colours, from textured weaves and neutral colours, to bold, vibrant shades. When you order from a company like Web-Blinds, the blinds are made-to-measure so they fit your windows perfectly.
Vertical blinds work well in living rooms and can be useful to help prevent fabric furniture, such as a sofa or chairs, fading from the harsh effects of sunlight.
