Choosing the perfect blinds for your home can be a challenge. From vintage wooden Venetian blinds to sleek, contemporary roller blinds, there are a plethora of different blinds to choose from, which can make finding the right ones for your home a challenge.

Here are our top tips for selecting the best blinds for your home.

Insulation needs

Window blinds serve many more purposes than adding a touch of elegance and style to your home. They also have many insulating properties as they trap a layer of air between the fabric and the window. Certain types of blinds are better than others at preventing heat loss.

If you are looking for blinds that will retain heat and maintain room temperature, choose Roller blinds as these are made of layers of thermal material so are very effective at preventing heat loss.

Window size

Choosing the wrong blinds for your window size can make your room look cluttered and unorganised. A slat size that is proportionate to your window, however, will enhance the look so it is important to choose blinds that match your window size.

If you have a particularly tall or wide window, vertical blinds might be the best option for you. Giving you the power to block out the light or pull it back to open up your window completely, a vertical blind easily covers a large space.

Lighting needs

Another factor to consider is the amount of light you would like to have in your room. The style of blinds that you choose will have a big impact on how much light enters your home. A bright, sunny window may be perfect for a kitchen or office but not for a nursery where little ones are trying to sleep.

For rooms where you want to let the light flood through freely, choose vertical blinds as these offer maximum control for light and privacy. By drawing back the blinds you can let in maximum light, bringing the outdoors in.

However, for rooms where you want to keep the light out to enhance your sleep and create a cosy, dark atmosphere, choose blackout shades. Blackout shades are best for blocking out the most light.

Privacy needs

If you live on a particularly busy road, privacy might be at the top of your priority list when choosing new blinds.

Blackout roman blinds are the best option for optimum privacy. These achieve complete privacy and prevent any light from escaping too.
