How to use window blinds to add vibrancy to your home

If you’re feeling uninspired by your drab décor, then relax – there are some very easy, affordable and fast solutions that can refresh your room. The windows in a room are a very commanding feature and can make a real difference to how a room feels and looks. Often, they are large spaces, and so shading them needs to be a combination between practicality and style.

Window blinds are an exceptional way to add colour to your home whilst still providing shade and even security. The type of blind you need depends on your room type, what takes place in the room and any additional requirements.

For example, a faux wooden venetian blind is ideal for the window above the sink in the kitchen as they handle moisture and heat very well and are easy to clean. Likewise, a blackout roller or Roman blind is ideal for bedrooms as they keep light out, allowing you to sleep easily. So browse the categories of an online retailer, such as DotcomBlinds and find a blind that works best for you.

A Roman Blind is a type of blind that is among the most popular type of blind for adding vibrancy in the home. They come in a huge choice of colours and fabrics and many are patterned too. They really are a diverse blind that can transform your room into a vibrant and bold living area. The joy of Roman blinds is that they gather at the top, meaning that you’ll always have at least a hint of colour visible.

Conservatories are generally made from white PVC and they run the risk of looking very stale and indistinguishable from one to the next. However, pleated conservatory are a really simple way to shade the room (which is especially useful in the summer) and add a burst of colour.

These pleated blinds come in a huge array of fun and funky colours. You can choose one colour to match your colour theme or mix and match. Each blind covers each pane of glass, so you can really go to town mixing it up. These pleated blinds are so easy to fit: they are held against the glass by the rubber gasket around the windowpane – not drilling or screwing needed.

A go to blind is most definitely the roller blind. This is a really simple product that neatly fills the window – especially if it is made to measure. A really good tip for selecting any blind, but particularly roller blinds, is to get your hands on some free fabric samples before you buy. This lets you compare fabrics and colours and test them on your window.

Once your samples arrive, get some Sellotape and stick them to the window so you can see how much light they block and how the colours change throughout the day (particularly if it is a dimout fabric).

There are plenty of options when it comes to brightening up your home with window, you just use a little imagination and planning!
