Things to consider if you’re buying blinds

Whether you’re buying blinds because you want some more privacy in your home, or for decorative purposes, or both, it can be difficult to know where to buy them from, and what kind to buy!

Windows are a massive focal point in many rooms, and the blinds you choose should be decorative and functional. So what do you need to consider…

Light and privacy
You need to get the balance right with these. Do you want your room to remain bright and airy with the blinds down, or do you want a more private, enclosed fell? Are you looking for bedroom blinds intended to block out early morning sun? Or do you want the sun to shine in the mornings? Are you after a sheer fabric just for a little privacy, but that will still allow light into your home in the daytime? All of these factors will influence the styles and fabrics you choose, and once we know your requirements we’ll be able to advise you on the best blinds for you.

What’s your budget?
We have clients with massively varying styles and budgets, and we pride ourselves on catering to you all! Whether you need to dress a single window or the entire house, we are more than happy to help. You may consider spending more of your budget on some windows and scaling back on others. Once we know you’re budget, we can discuss all of your options with you.

Some are magnets for dust and annoyingly need a lot of cleaning. Shades in textured fabrics tend to hide dirt and dust better and can be cleaned by vacuuming! If you’re not into excessive cleaning, it’s a factor worth considering.

Your decorating style
It sounds obvious, but you should try and buy blinds that suit the style of your home. Is your style formal or relaxed, cosy or minimalistic, bright or neutral? We can help you buy blinds that will suit your home.

If you have pets or young children you need to think about buying blinds that are safe. Again, we can help you with safety solutions for all of our blinds.
