Which Blinds are Best for the Living Room?

Blinds are a wonderful alternative to curtains, being practical, easy to install, and design-flexible. The living room is the communal area in the house where your furniture, electronics and other décor form part of the cosiness. Blinds offer privacy, as well as UV protection from the sun, so your belongings will be better protected.  There are some blinds that work better in specific rooms, so it’s important to explore your options before committing to blind installation.

What Are the Most Popular Window Blinds?

As with all interior décor, it really will depend on the size of the living room, the colour scheme, and your own preference.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are ideal for covering sliding doors and wider windows. They have the ability to make a window look elongated, making them great for smaller spaces.

Venetian Blinds

These blinds are the traditional ones you see often over bathroom windows, or in commercial spaces. They give you great control of how much light you want to let in, and come in a range of different colours and materials, allowing you to let your inner designer shine! They look neat and tidy, and also give the room a slightly larger appearance.

Bamboo Blinds

Along with the unique aesthetic offered by bamboo blinds, they are eco-friendly which further adds to their natural appeal. The trends for interior décor are all pointing towards eco-friendly alternatives that bring the outdoors, indoors.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are horizontal blinds usually made from softer fabric, with thicker slats. They have the ability to soften the way a room looks, while adding a sophisticated tone. They come in almost limitless colour and textural options, making them a great choice for a living room with a specific colour scheme.

Wooden Blinds

Wooden blinds add a richness to any room that they’re installed in. Whether you’re looking for a deep mahogany, or a cheerful pine, the sky is the limit with these noise reducing blinds. They give you incredible control over the light that’s let into the room with the ability to rotate up to 180°.
