Different Types Of Window Blinds to Suit Your Home

When you’re ready to upgrade or install new blinds in your home, you have a lot of window treatments to choose from. The type of blinds that will suit your home depend on a variety of factors, including function, look and budget.

So, what are the best types of blinds for your home? Let’s take a look at four of the main types of modern blinds: roller, vertical, Roman and Venetian

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds, also called Holland blinds, are practical, low profile window coverings that provide precise sun control. Clean and simple when lowered and discreet when raised, they work well on large windows and small ones alike.

  • Double or Single System: Opt for a single system for straightforward applications, or a double system for enhanced light control and privacy. The double system adds visual interest with options for coloured, patterned, or textured fabrics.
  • Linked or Split System: Control blinds independently with a split system or link them for synchronised operation on adjoining windows, perfect for large walls of windows.
  • Fabrics: Choose from blockout, sunscreen, or translucent materials to meet your specific needs.
  • Colours: Select from a virtually unlimited palette, including fun prints perfect for kids’ rooms or sophisticated hues that complement any decor.
  • Fascia or Cassette: Customise the housing of your roller blinds to match your window frame or room aesthetic. Decide on a fascia or cassette and colour-coordinate the encasing.
  • Motors: Enhance the functionality with motorised blinds, ideal for large expanses of blinds or high large windows, allowing for easy operation with the push of a button.

Vertical Blinds

Traditionally used over sliding doors and patio doors, vertical blinds (or vertical shades) add unique visual interest when used on windows in living rooms and bedrooms. An ever-popular choice for office buildings and large expanses of windows, vertical blinds can be customised to fit over virtually any space.

  • Weights: Ensure blinds stay in place and don’t blow in the wind with options like weights & chains, special weights, or sewn-in weights.
  • Fabric: Choose from blockout, light filtering, low allergenic, and flame-retardant fabrics to meet your specific needs.
  • Colours: Explore countless colours and textures to customise the look to match your home’s décor. 
  • Stack Options: Configure the blinds to stack left, right, centre, or split, accommodating the location of the opening of windows or sliding glass doors.
  • Durable: Individual drapes can be easily replaced if damaged, adding to the longevity of the blinds.
  • Slat Sizes: Available in a variety of widths, including 63mm, 89mm, 100mm, and 127mm, to suit different window scales and aesthetic preferences.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds feature horizontal panels of fabric that create an elegant, tailored look, whether raised or lowered. Each fabric panel is connected on the front or back by a batten, which is what helps create tidy folds when the blinds are raised.

  • Battens: Choose from hidden metal battens on the back for a sleek look or exposed wooden battens on the front for added visual interest.
  • Fabrics: Options include blockout for complete privacy and light control or light filtering to soften incoming light.
  • Colours: A wide range of fabrics available in solids, prints, and textures to complement any dining room décor.
  • Health & Safety: Select from low allergenic and fire-retardant fabrics to ensure safety and comfort in your home’s bedrooms and dining rooms.

  • Slat Size: 16mm, 25mm, 50mm.
 

Timber or Faux Wood Venetian Blinds

  • Durable: Real wood or Polystyrene Compound (PVC).
  • Eco-Friendly: Timber sourced from sustainable growth forests.
  • Colours: Wooden blinds are light, medium or dark or can be painted a neutral variation. Timber-look can be smooth or feature wood grain and comes in a variety of colours.
