Blinds come in very few different types right?
They come in;
Roman, Venetian, Vertical or Roller. They are your options. If you’re looking for a “Wow” Factor, pick a jazzy pattern or colour.
Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!
Blinds can come in a wide range of different types and styles. One that can really make a room stand out and give that all important “Wow” factor. Not only that, some of them just make good practical sense.
Here are some ideas of new blinds that you probably didn’t know that you could have in your home;
Motorised Blinds? Yes, you can automate your blinds to open, shut, twist and turn at the touch of a button.
Motorised Blinds from the outside look exactly like any other kind of blind, however inside the mechanism is fitted a small, rechargeable electric motor. Using a remote control you can open and close your blind at will.
Why is this a good idea? Blinds are proven to prevent heat loss in the home and reduce glare from the sun, which can overheat the room. Making it simpler to be able to open and close your blinds, at the touch of the button, will result in you saving money on energy bills in the long run.
Safety is a large part of why motorised blinds are so popular also, no more potentially dangerous hanging cords with motorised blinds, as all the hard work is done by the motor.
Vision blinds are the all-encompassing blinds, they are ideal for living spaces or offices. Much like standard roller blinds, Vision Blinds have two layers of horizontal strips of fabric, which can move over each other.
When the layers are overlapping they can let lots of light into the room without the room overheating. Plus you can still see out of your window to admire your lovely view.
These blinds really give a wow factor to a room, they are a striking change to standard roller blinds. Mixing fabrics colours in the layers can really complement an interior design.
Panel Blinds are stunning features of any room and can even make fantastic room dividers.
Large panels on sliding rails provide a fantastic visual feature for large windows for balconies or patio doors.
These can come in a range of colours and patterns which can suit the style of your interior. As these Panel Blinds can be layered on top of one another this can provide varying light levels coming into the room.
