Blinds bring a clean, modern look to any room. Easy to fit and even easier to care for, they can be used individually or to complement curtains.

We’ve detailed all you need to know about selecting the right blinds for your home. From choosing the style and picking the materials to handy measuring tips – all you need to make sure you get the most from your blinds.

Choosing the right blind for your room

Blinds are incredibly versatile and can provide attractive window furnishing for any room in the house. They are ideal in rooms with a more practical use such as kitchens, bathrooms or home offices; in addition to offering total blackout benefits for bedrooms and stylish sophistication in a lounge.

When deciding what type of blind to choose it’s worth considering which room it’s for. Take a look at our blind guide below, to make sure you have the right match for your room.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are practical, durable and great value for money. Our roller blinds are made of long-lasting specially-treated fabrics that are easy to wipe down and keep clean, making them ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds offer a unique look. They consist of horizontal slats that can lowered, raised, or most importantly tilted – giving great control over the amount of light that comes into your room. We stock both wooden and aluminium Venetian blinds, so you can decide if a traditional or modern style is most suitable.

Bamboo blinds

For great value, look no further than our range of bamboo roll-up blinds, with automatic cord lock. They offer an easy to use and easy to maintain solution that’s especially effective with smaller windows.

Roman blinds

Roman blinds consist of soft folds when raised, which remain straight when lowered. They are operated by a cord mechanism attached to either slats or dowel rods sown into the lining. Roman blinds are great for achieving a sophisticated, contemporary look and are available in both fabric and bamboo – allowing for trimming, if required. All of our blinds come complete with fittings and instructions to ensure easy installation.
