Finding the Perfect Blind

Finding the perfect blinds is more like finding the right solution for your needs. It may be that you are looking for practicality or style. This all depends on the window, your style, the room and your requirements.

There are, however, blinds that typically suit general purposes you want them to achieve. We shall go through the list of blind styles that Expression Blinds offer and explain where their perfect placement might be.


Birch Venetian BlindsVenetian Blinds

The all-purpose blind. You really can fit these blinds to most windows that you desire. They control light and privacy effectively with retracting draw strings and rotating slats. They are very robust and can take quite a beating too.

To think that a Venetian blind comes in a standard white aluminium is an incorrect assumption. A range of style, colours and materials can really make a sleek and stylish blind. Wooden Venetian blinds can really add a traditional style to a room. Whereas an aluminium metal colour blind can give a sleek, tidy and organised feel to a room.

If you are looking for a blind for your bathroom and you don’t have frosted glass then aluminium Venetian is a perfect and cheaper alternative. It can allow the maximum amount of light into your bathroom while still providing the privacy that you require. It’s even perfect for if you do have frosted glass for that extra privacy and additional style to your bathroom. The aluminium material makes it waterproof and easier to clean.


Bedroom Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds are very versatile blinds. Coming in a range of fabrics, colours and styles so much so that you can, essentially choose exactly how you want them to look.

Practically they are great for allowing the light in and reducing the amount of glare within a room, whilst providing full privacy and blocking light from outside during the night. As well as this they insulate a room well too.

These blinds are great for living room, bedrooms and kitchens. If you are looking to use them in the bedroom we would always recommend a black out lining to stop light during the night. In living rooms, an opaque lining is great for keeping the heat in and diffusing light as it enters the room, so not the make a room unnecessarily darker than it needs to be.

Roman blinds can be fitted to your window frame or above your window frame. Which is a useful feature if you have pictures or ornaments on your window sill. Fitting the blind above your frame which ensures these stay safe.


Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are another great decorative blind option and can be practical as well. They come in a range of different styles, colours and designs to meet your preference.

At Expression Blinds, we only use aluminium roller barrels, this is to ensure that the blind we fit has a long lifetime. Cheaper models may use cardboard which can very quickly start to deteriorate and sag in the middle.

If you’re looking for a simple and stylish blind for a small window then a roller blind is the ideal for the job.

If you want a roller blind for the bedroom they can also be fitted with a blackout liner to keep out the night time light. You can also fit dim out lining which will diffuse light in living areas to allow natural light to shine into the room.
