One of the simplest ways to update a tired room is by adding new blinds. There is a wide choice of fabrics, materials and colours available, so you will always be able to find blinds that match existing colour schemes. You might even find a set of blinds that inspire you to redecorate the entire room.
In rooms where windows are central or the feature point, it can be tricky to select the best type of blinds. It’s always important to consider how light will enter the room, no matter how big the windows are, or where they are in the room.
Small rooms can be made to feel more spacious by adding vertical blinds. As well as being able to control the level of light in the room, they can also create feeling in a room: natural materials such as soft textiles are perfect for living areas or a bedroom, whilst metal blinds can look great in an office. Venetian blinds are also a good way to add the sense of space to a room.
Roman blinds are more homely, creating a pleasant, pleated effect that adds a gentle touch to a living room – they are also popular choices in bathrooms. Specialist companies like 247blinds can help you choose the right materials for the right rooms.
Block out light
Blackout blinds are ideal for loft conversions or other rooms which receive a great deal of natural light. Light in the early morning or late evening can be quite irritating when the sun is low in the sky, and blackout blinds can be the perfect solution – especially if your sleep is being interrupted. Blackout blinds were once only black – they are now available in a multitude of funky colours and can add a real touch of flair to a room. They are also great for keeping the kids in bed when it is sunny outside..!
Remote control blinds
You might also consider installing remote control blinds for the ultimate in contemporary décor. It might seem extravagant, but it will really modernise any room and create an impressive focal point.
Adding colour is an easy way to update the look of a room. Once upon a time, you would be lucky to find good blinds that weren’t white, cream, beige, ivory, etc. Now, as well as a range of styles, blinds are available in any colour and pattern you can think of.
Use colour to make your blinds really stand out and brighten the room or as subtle complementary additions to the rest of the room. However you choose to use blinds, there are some excellent effects which can be achieved with a little thought.
