Tips and Tricks for Buying Blinds

When shopping for blinds, having an extensive selection to choose from can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you can have your blinds in any colour or style you like. On the other hand, sorting through all the available options can be a painstaking process.

Use the following guide to help you pick the best blinds for your home, without spending a lot of time on search process.

Know the basics about blinds

Blinds are a popular choice for window treatments primarily because their adjustable slats offer full privacy and light control. The blind itself can be stacked at the top of the window to reveal an unobstructed view. There are also blinds that don’t have slats, like Roman blinds, which simply fold up and hang straight when lowered.

Other types of blinds include roller blinds, Venetian blinds, blackout blinds, and honeycomb blinds. Each differs according to their material and stacking system, as well as the level of light control they offer. For instance, blackout blinds are great in bedrooms as they are made of a dense material that blocks out sunlight effectively. On the other hand, vertical blinds are great for sliding glass doors and wide windows because they stack off to the side.

Aside from the style and orientation of your blinds, another thing to consider is the material. You can choose from fabric, metal, wood, vinyl, or PVC blinds. The material you use will also dictate the versatility, energy efficiency, and maintenance requirements of your blinds.

Should you Use coloured blinds?

Coloured blinds can be a tricky. Blinds are typically neutral in colour, but you can never go wrong with choosing a colour that is closest to the colour of your window trim.

Now, if you want to experiment a bit and match your blinds to your room’s palette, you can do so under certain conditions. Choosing coloured blinds is okay if you are comfortable with them being more visually prominent than the window, and if you have no plans of changing the colour of the room any time soon.

How much do blinds cost?

Consult a local supplier to get a quote for your window blinds. If you do not know any local suppliers, you can find reliable blinds companies via Oneflare.

If you have not yet decided on the style or material you want, the supplier can give you advice on which blinds would suit your home. Note that prices will vary according to the type and material you choose, as well as the size of your windows.
