Choosing the right type of window blinds
When choosing the type of blinds for your windows, you need to consider what you are using each room for. In your bedroom, for example, you may want to consider using blackout blinds to aid your sleep.
It is also important to consider the internal climate of each room. If you want to reduce your energy costs, and you have large windows that are North-facing, then maybe choosing blinds that are made with fabrics that offer good insulation will be a perfect choice for you.
If you are looking to install blinds in your kitchen, then consider choosing blinds that are easy to clean so you can remove any cooking residue and the materials won’t be negatively affected by steam, grease build-up or heat.

Our custom-built range of Vertical blinds is an ideal solution for large windows and patio doors. This style of blind uses slats that hang vertically and can be opened by sliding them sideways, or through a middle parting opening like curtains.
We offer vertical blinds in a wide range of fabrics and colours from sun reflective to thermal. Vertical blinds can give your room a sleek, uncluttered, contemporary look and these style of blinds are a great space-saving option as they have minimal stack-back and take up less space than bulky curtains.
Our Venetian style blinds are one of our most popular choices with our happy customers. Our range is available in aluminium, real wood and faux wood. Venetian blinds offer a very sophisticated solution for your home or office window dressing and can effortlessly blend with just about any décor they are paired with.
A practical choice for rooms where you need privacy and good light control, Venetian blinds can add a feeling of warmth to a room without making the window look fussy or untidy.
If a good night’s sleep is eluding you, a simple fix can be achieved by changing your window dressing from curtains to blackout roller blinds.
Roller blinds are a great choice of window dressing when you don’t want to shade your room with bulky curtains. Roller blinds are ideal for kitchens, bedrooms and home offices where you want to keep the décor clean and minimalistic, while still looking beautiful and stylish.
Our roller blind range comes in a wide choice of fabrics and colours that can be easily opened and closed to let in an uninterrupted view or to adjust the level of shade from the sun as it rises and sets. But we also do blackout blinds to completely darken your bedroom because we know that darkness is essential to a good night’s sleep.
Pleated blinds are similar in appearance to roller blinds as they can both be completely raised or lowered to adjust the light levels coming into your room. These are a great choice when you want to control the level of privacy for rooms with floor to ceiling windows.
These blinds are becoming increasingly popular with our customers and we can custom-make your pleated blinds to fit your windows and match with your interior décor perfectly.
Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect fit blinds are one of the most innovative new styles of window blinds to hit the market in recent years. This is a very versatile option that is ideal for uPVC windows and doors because the blinds need no drilling or screwing during installation.
Stylish and contemporary, you should choose Perfect Fit blinds when you want a solution that fits neatly inside your window and door frames and moves together with them as they open and close. Practical and slimline, the blinds simply clip between the glass and beading of your window frame, making them ideal for unusually-shaped windows, listed properties and rented homes where you are not allowed to drill into the walls to fit blinds or curtains.
Roman blinds are a popular and versatile choice for your window treatment. For a minimalist style, you can choose sleek, solid-coloured linen fabrics or a classy satin weave with a subtle pattern. For a more traditional look, think about a woven jacquard fabric with a high cotton content.
No matter what fabric or colour of blind your choose, Roman blinds can create a sense of richness and luxury to your interior décor while giving you a high level of privacy. If you want to add a sense of quality and grace to your home, then the sleek, modern design can work better than a more stark or industrial type of blind.
