Quality DIY blinds on a budget
A key part of any new home or re-design are the windows – and how we dress them makes all the difference. Choosing the best blinds for the eyes of your home is important, and with new and exciting innovative products, combining style and practicality has never been easier.
What to consider when choosing blinds
In addition to finding the best style to suit your room, take into consideration the privacy, light control and views. Remember, windows are a major source of heat loss, so the right blinds could even save you on your energy bill!
Living and Entertaining room – A central space in the home, the living room has many uses so it’s important to consider style and functionality. Day/Night roller blinds or full block-out roller blinds are both perfect options to create your desired level of block-out whilst maintaining a chic, minimal look.
Kitchen and Bathroom – The ‘wet zones’ of the home, like the kitchen and bathroom, require moisture resistant blinds such as those made with PVC or polyester – perfect for any areas exposed to water and steam.
Bedroom and nursery – Safety and privacy is key when selecting blinds for the kid’s rooms, and it’s good to know that there is always the option to choose cord-free blinds. Full block-out roller blinds are also a great option to minimise light, creating a tranquil sleeping environment.
