How much light do you want to let in?
People obviously choose blinds because they want a way to reduce incoming light, but this is still an important question to ask.
If you want to avoid the sun entirely, then block-out blinds would definitely be worth considering – their insulation from the heat and the light makes them an ideal component of any morning lie-in.
However, other types of blind allow light to enter in different ways. Both Venetian and vertical blinds allow you to modify the angle of the slats, giving you the ability to perfectly position how your rooms are illuminated.
That being said, some light would still get in even when they are fully closed – so you have to keep in mind where the sun will be and when before making your purchase.
Pick the right colour
It is common for blinds to come in several different styles, patterns and colours, but not all of them will go perfectly with your home.
You need to think beyond what looks nice in isolation, but how your ideal blind would match the tones and colours across the rooms where they will be installed.
Though the choice will likely still be down to your preference, we recommend avoiding a colour that is significantly darker than your walls.
This could make the room look too dark – which might not be what you intend. This is your chance to redefine your living space in any number of ways, so choose wisely.
What room will they be in?
This might surprise you, but some people purchase different blinds for different rooms based on what might fit each one best, even with similar-shaped windows.
Of course, consistency is key when it comes to style, but the advantages of matching each room to an ideal blind will serve you for years to come so it’s always best to find a balance.
You might want block-out blinds in your bedroom to prevent any rude awakenings, as mentioned above. On top of this, Venetian blinds might be ideal for the front room, where you’ll likely be wanting to soak up the sun throughout the day.
Roller blinds are also wonderful for kitchens, as they are easily cleaned while also helping with the moisture that cooking inevitably brings into the room.
