Design Tips

How to choose suitable blinds for common situations and applications…

BLINDS TO REDUCE (BUT NOT STOP) LIGHT, ALLOWING A FREE VIEW AND PRIVACY

You don’t have to shut out the view to keep your privacy – you can have the best of both worlds – enjoying the great vistas outside while remaining virtually invisible to outsiders. Our Sunscreen roller blinds filter the glare of harsh sunlight and damaging ultra violet rays, so you can prolong the rich colours and fresh condition of your floor coverings and furnishings.

BLINDS FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP OR A GOOD DAY’S SLEEP

Blockout roller blinds have a special lining and are great for people who need to sleep during daylight hours such as:

  • shift workers
  • those who sleep in the day
  • people who have problems sleeping in the summer when the days are longer and the sun rises earlier
  • small children
  • new parents who want their babies to sleep through the night

Our Blockout roller blinds provide an excellent light block-out function.

BLINDS TO CONTROL THE EXACT AMOUNT OF LIGHT AND PRIVACY YOU WANT

Venetian blinds enable you to adjust slats at any angle to get any light ambience you want – from total blockout for complete privacy through to wide open. By hoisting them up, you can get a totally unrestricted view through your window.

By tilting the slats, you can also control the room temperature for your comfort.Wooden blinds have especially good insulation properties – keeping you warm and cosy, saving power. In summer, simply open the slats to allow natural breezes to keep you cool.

For high moisture environments such as kitchens, PVC blinds are ideal.

BLINDS FOR STEAMY ROOMS SUCH AS KITCHENS OR BATHROOMS

You need to be careful when choosing blinds for a room that gets steamy and humid, as the moisture in the air can shorten the life of blinds.

Fortunately our Blockout and Sunscreen roller blinds are made from materials that can handle moisture, steam, and humidity for years and stay in good condition.  Look no further if you need some bathroom blind inspiration.

PVC Venetian blinds are ideal for high moisture environments such as kitchens.

BLINDS AS COST-EFFECTIVE ROOM DIVIDERS

Blinds are much more versatile than people often think. Not only do they decorate a room and control the sunlight into your home, they also make effective room dividers. Blinds provide a simple yet effective way to split a large room into smaller separate living areas giving added privacy. Our made-to-measure blinds can be made to your specifications. Instead of splashing out on expensive room dividers, you can use our Blockout blinds, which left open let light into the whole space or closed give privacy to a certain part of your home.

BLINDS FOR A SUMMER-HOUSE OR CONSERVATORY

If you have a summerhouse or conservatory, a versatile room where you can get away from it all and relax, you’ll probably want to control the light depending on the time of day and season. Depending on how much light you want to screen out, you can install our Blockout or Sunscreen blinds to make your relaxation space cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
