The lounge is one of the focal points of the home. It is the room where most of your time is spent, whether it be relaxing, watching television, entertaining guests, the list goes on. For many people, the question of interior design in the lounge tends to focus upon the carpets and the furniture. But it is important to consider the window decoration, as this is where the eye is initially drawn when entering the room, especially in the daytime as it provides the main source of light.
The correct choice of blinds can really make a lounge; they can be a design feature, blend seamlessly into the background if desired and can provide privacy coupled with light control. At Expression Blinds, we provide a free choose at home design service to allow you to pick the perfect lounge blinds to fit in with you budget and taste. So what are the options?
Lounge Blinds – Wooden Blinds
One of the most beautiful of all blind ranges is wooden blinds. If the colours are chosen correctly, they can make a striking design feature. We can supply a number of different blind ranges, in a huge array of colours; from simple whites and creams, through to dark wood tones. We can also supply them in a variety of finishes including gloss, soft grain and distressed.
Wooden blinds can also be combined with tapes, that can either match or contrast the wood, allowing another colour to be introduced into the design scheme. Wooden blinds allow the user to control the light and privacy levels by tilting the slats to the desired level, and of course the user and lift the blinds all the way up to allow the maximum amount of light into the room.
Lounge Blinds – Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are one of the most popular choices for lounge blinds. They are budget friendly, versatile in their operation and come in a huge range of fabrics, colours and patterns. Vertical blinds have the advantage of being lightweight, and this allows large windows to be covered in a single blind as opposed to multiple blinds that are required for the other blind styles.
Vertical blinds can also be curved to fit angled bay windows, the only type of blind that can do this. They provide excellent levels of privacy, and are recommended for security; they can be tilted at an angle where people cannot see in, but it does not make it obvious that no-one is at home!
Lounge Blinds – Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are another popular choice for lounge blinds, and for good reason too. They come in a beautiful array of prints that can really brighten up a lounge, and make a real design impact.
Roller blinds had a huge advantage in that they can provide privacy without compromising window ledge space, leaving valuable room for your cherished pictures and ornaments. They can work well as lounge blinds by adding a shape and braid to the bottom of the blind to further enhance the look of the window.
