The Right Indoor Blinds for your Home
Indoor blinds come in a wide variety of styles and materials. Despite blinds being around for 1000’s of years in one form or another, it’s only been in the past 100-200 years that blinds have become a staple of people’s homes.
Blinds are a trendy alternative to curtains and can easily create more space in a room. Zone Interiors shares this easy-to-follow guide when shopping for blinds.
The style of blinds you choose needs to reflect your room, its theme and your taste. Venetian blinds are very popular and perfect for privacy and light control. Roller blinds provide a contemporary streamlined look and are practical for windows that require frequent use or access, such as sliding doors. They also work well in outdoor areas like patios.
Interior blinds come in a range of materials that can vary in suitability depending on your space. For areas exposed to high heat, consider aluminium Venetians, white timber Venetians or block-out roller blinds. All have white or reflective backing that can help eliminate any excess warmth.
Wet zones, such as bathrooms and kitchens, are environments where you should look at materials or fabrics that resist moisture. PVC and aluminium Venetian blinds are specifically designed for wet areas and are perfect for the home bathroom or kitchen.
Light and Privacy
Venetian blinds are the perfect solution for general living areas because they put you in control of your light and privacy needs. Too much or too little? Simply adjust the angle of the slats: the cord/wand operation will tilt the blinds at the desired angle for full light and visibility, or complete privacy and a dark room.
For a bedroom, fabric block-out blinds are a popular choice, as they provide a dark room for a good night’s sleep.
