The installation of blinds is a very effective way to uplift any room. So, why should you choose blinds over curtains? Regardless of using blinds for aesthetic purposes or practical reasons, blinds have loads of benefits.

Light control

Blinds are a great way of regulating the amount of light entering your room. Allowing you to adjust the amount of light when you need to. When it comes to Venetian blinds, you’re able to close the slats so they are tightly fitted together ensuring no light comes through.

More colours, patterns and styles

We supply a wide range of blinds in endless amounts of colours, patterns and styles. So you can be sure to find that perfect look for your kitchen, living room or office. You can choose from; vertical blinds, roman blinds, roller blinds, Venetian blinds and wooden blinds.

Variety of materials

Choosing a material for your blinds can be a difficult decision. We would recommend selecting a fabric which works well with your existing furniture and decor, this will ensure your room looks put together and stylish.

Enhance your privacy

Blinds are a great way to keep those nosy neighbours from seeing inside your home, or if you live along a busy main street, blinds are the perfect way to limit the view from outside. With made to measure blinds, you can ensure a comfortable level of privacy so that you can relax within your home.

Available in a wide range of fabrics and styles you‘re sure to find something that suits your style, creating that relaxing atmosphere with the soft finishes of curtains. Curtains work great in living rooms and bedrooms due to their relaxed nature.

Curtains are a great way to help keep those costly energy bills down - helping to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in those scorching summer months. We even have the option to add an extra lining of insulation material, to help keep those costs down even more!

Easy to keep clean

Horizontal blinds can be a dust trap if they’re not cleaned regularly. Curtains do also collect some levels of dust but considerably less than blinds, a wash every couple of months will help to keep those dust levels down.

In the end, this decision is up to you and no one else. When selecting the perfect blinds or curtains for you be sure to consider your needs. For example, if you live in a busy area, privacy may be your number one concern, or if you live in a cold environment, insulation maybe your key objective.
