There are several types of blinds available for your home in Brentwood or Billericay, but you may not be sure which is the right style for you. Blinds are not only stylish and attractive, but highly functional, looking great, keeping your rooms warm and giving just the right amount of privacy. You can have blinds in any room to co-ordinate with your décor, and they can be used in conjunction with curtains and pelmets.
With most things, people want a wide range of choice and variety these days, and window dressings are no exception. It is possible to create whichever look you desire with a vast selection of materials, colours, patterns and effects.
Choosing a Style, Attractive & Versatile Roller & Venetian Blinds
Roller blinds use a cord or other mechanism to roll up or down,and are the most widely used blinds in the UK, perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. Available in lots of different fabrics, they can be chic, pretty, smart or formal, and contrasting fabric can be used on either side to add interest especially when the blind is open. Custom made roller blinds ensure the ideal fit for your windows, meaning a dynamic finish. Your roller blinds can provide a stunning focal point within your home.
These blinds have been a favourite with many people for years, with their no nonsense wood, aluminium or plastic slats. They will let as much or as little light in as you want, simply by tilting the attached wand. They are also versatile and can usually be trimmed to suit the size of your windows. They are a good choice for rooms with high levels of moisture such as kitchens and bathrooms, and a wipe over with a duster or damp cloth will usually keep them looking tip top.
Versatile Range of Bespoke Blinds for every taste
Vertical blinds consist of individual slats which are clipped onto a sliding track and hang vertically, joined by weights at the bottom of the blind. Vertical blinds are perfect for any shape of window, and have risen significantly in popularity over recent years due to their contemporary look and versatility. They are available in a range of gorgeous fabrics, patterns and shades bringing elegance and style. People also love the amount of control these blinds give, when it comes to privacy and light filtering.
Wood Weave Blinds
These blinds deliver a warm, natural and authentic feel to your home, and they are renowned for creating a calm and tranquil environment. Wood weave blinds are ideal for all of your windows, especially looking out into the garden as they offer a smooth transition between the outdoors and interior décor.
Fitted Roman Blinds, Billericay & Brentwood
When raised, Roman blinds concertina into attractive, soft horizontal pleats, leaving a large amount of fabric exposed. This means you can make a design statement with this type of blind, perfect for medium to heavyweight materials. They can dress up a bay window, adding a splash of colour, and can be tailored to fit any awkward space where curtain poles for instance may not be a practical choice. These look great when fitted with contrasting lining, and provide extra insulation. Roman blinds add sophistication to living rooms, dining rooms, master bedrooms, guest rooms, children’s room, conservatories and offices. They give more of a furnished effect to the room than some other types of blind.
Beautiful Visual Impact With Blinds
Windows are often an afterthought when homes are being decorated, yet they are one of the most important features. However stunning a room looks, the wrong curtains or blinds can ruin the overall effect. Blinds are extremely popular these days, even more so than curtains. They are fashionable, versatile and can compliment any style. Blinds are also a very practical choice as they allow the home owner to control the amount of light, shade or privacy in each room.
Bedrooms often require a window dressing that will provide total darkness where required. Most blinds are available with blackout linings including roller and Roman blinds. Rooms with heightened humidity such as bathrooms and kitchens are best fitted with Venetian blinds in aluminium, PVC or man made fabric.
Enjoying and Looking After Your Blinds
Whichever type of blinds you choose, keeping them clean and dust free is key to their longevity and attractiveness. Fabric vertical blinds can be vacuumed with a brush attachment, or Venetian blinds can be dusted by placing a sock on your hand and running it along their length. Spot clean where needed by blotting the area with a clean cloth dipped in mild detergent and water. Alternatively an alcohol wipe may be used, just don’t spray directly onto the fabric.
