Decide Which Blinds to Choose With This Handy Guide


If you are planning to install some new blinds in your home – either ready made blinds or custom made – this guide will briefly explain some of the popular styles of blinds on the market today, helping you to make your choice.

Roller Blinds

One of the real trend setters in the modern era are roller blinds. The advantage of this style of blind is they can manually be raised and lowered using a chain, or a small motor can be attached to operate them at the mere press of a button. Roller blinds come in an array of colours to suit all decor, and are available in both translucent fabrics for more light, or blockout fabric designs to keep the light out.

Vertical Blinds

Also one of the most popular blind designs in recent times. The benefit of vertical blinds is in their design. It’s a style that really doesn’t date, and is both functional and attractive. They are easy to open and close and give you the ability to let in as much light as you want at any given time. Even when partially opened they offer a degree of privacy due to the angle of the blinds. They are the perfect solution for sliding glass doors.

Panel Glides

For a really contemporary and modern look, then panel glides are definitely the best option when choosing blinds. They really are a unique design that adds a touch of class and ambience to the room. Best suited to larger windows, panel glides can even be used as cool room dividers. They provide ample light control and offer a great deal of privacy. The panels stack neatly behind one another.

Aluminium Venetian and Timber Venetian

Definitely in vogue again in contemporary homes are aluminium and timber venetian blinds. Aluminium venetians offer durability and flexibility, coming in a variety of colours and finishes to suit everyone’s taste. Timber Venetians look classy and timeless, offering a hint of nature to the home. The true advantage of all Venetian blinds is the ability to control the light, letting in as much or as little as you like while stile maintaining maximum privacy because of the unique angle of the  horizontal blades.

Roman Blinds

Another classic blind design that never goes out of style are Roman blinds. They match perfectly with modern decor and impart a relaxed, but stylish look to the home. They come in a wide range of designs and a huge range of fabrics. You are bound to find Roman blinds to suit your needs. Translucent and blockout fabrics are available. These blinds exude sophistication, so if you really want to add a touch of class to your home, choose Roman blinds.
