There is so much choice now when it comes to your window coverings; styles, motorisation, colours, materials, textures. Let’s take a look at some initial considerations before we delve into the big decisions:

What do you need your blinds for?

  • Are you looking to block out light?
    • Do you want to just filter the light coming into the room, or provide total darkness for optimum sleeping conditions?
  • Are you looking for privacy?
    • Do you want to block the outside world out completely, or allow for varying degrees of privacy?
    • Are you looking to make a street facing room more private during the night, but allow the light in during the day?
  • What kind of system are you looking for?
    • Do you want a traditional, manual style blind, or a built-in, electric system?

Where is the blind going?

Different styles of blind are suitable for different room and buildings, depending on the function of the environment.

  • Are you looking to improve your home’s insulation?
    • Whether you use blinds externally or internally, they can save up to 25% of your home’s energy loss through windows.
  • What’s the decorating style?
    • Beautiful window treatments can make or break a home – do you want your blinds to make an impact, or blend in? Formal or casual? Bold or subtle?

What’s your budget?

  • Are you looking to outfit your whole house or one window?
    • You might want to spend more on certain windows and scale back on others, depending on size and positioning in the house.

Safety considerations

  • Do you have young children or pets in your household and a need for streamlined or cordless blinds and shades?
