Choosing the right blinds for your home

Both practical and decorative, well-chosen curtains and blinds can have a transformative effect on any room. Follow our ideas for inspiring window treatments.

Roman, roller and Swedish fabric blinds are a popular, versatile choice for every room. Roman blinds are stylish but, if in constant use, their cords will need replacing over time as they have a tendency to fray or snap. Roller blinds are highly practical for kitchens and bathrooms, as their protective coating makes them suitable for moist environments. Swedish blinds look relaxed and are easy enough to make but can become fiddly to re-roll neatly if opened and closed often. Alternatively, more utilitarian styles such as Venetian blinds and shutters are less decorative but allow you better control of the amount of light that is filtered into a room.

In rooms that serve a variety of functions, it’s best to pair blinds and curtains, giving a flexible window dressing to suit day and night. Blinds with a blackout lining (available made to measure) are perfect for bedrooms, especially when they cover the frame completely and/or are paired with curtains. Uniform blinds, in the same style and fabric, will give a room with multiple windows a clean and cohesive look. In young children’s rooms, always fit blinds that are cordless or have a spring mechanism.
