How to Make the Most Out of Your Blinds This Summer

Blinds can be a great addition to the room when it comes to your interior design dreams. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, there are also some fantastic benefits to having blinds – especially when the sun comes out. With so many types of blinds now available, it’s easy to find the perfect ones to suit you.


Keep cool

If your house gets hot in the summer and cooler in the winter, then roller blinds are the perfect choice; keeping you cool in the summer and preventing heat loss in the winter. Made from special fabric, these blinds are ideal for all seasons – so you don’t have to consider thicker curtains in the winter. These are particularly good for the living room or bedroom, where temperature control can affect the way you use the room.


Stay in bed

We’ve all been there, enjoying a lazy Sunday morning where even a simple task such as opening the blinds seems like a major effort. Well, now you can embrace the morning even more with electric blinds controlled with a remote handset or by a mounted switch on the wall. Ideal for a larger room or conservatory and available in range of blind styles including: pleated, roller, vertical, venetian, roman, plantation shutters and awnings.


Increase privacy

For optimum privacy Venetian or visage blinds are perfect because of their dual functionality in opening, closing and rotating, giving a tilted view. In addition, if you’re looking for maximum privacy then roller blinds may be the best choice. Roller blinds can be made of blackout fabric, and have additional side channels which make them completely blocked – shutting out the rest of the world.

Let the light shine

Light control blinds are ideal for summer. Embrace the sun with rotating blinds to control both light and privacy. Skylight roof blinds are perfect for loft conversions where slanted roofs can bring in maximum sunlight all year round. Alternatively, Facette blinds give a sheer effect, ideal for your conservatory or kitchen where you can fully embrace the sunnier months without compromising on privacy.

Don’t compromise

Combining style, functionality and practically has never been easier with such a wide range of blinds on offer. So, however you’re decorating your room, make sure you choose the right blinds to optimise the natural light of the room.
