The Blind Shop's Guide to Blinds

Whether you have a brand new house or are just wanting to update a room, window blinds play a key part in an interior scheme. Here is The Blind Shop’s guide to styles and solutions:

Roller blinds

These blinds are always a popular choice and come in a variety of fabrics and bottom bars. Most roller blinds have a chain control to raise and lower the blind. Our roller blinds come with child safety features to minimise the risk of strangulation. Our roller blinds have the option of being remote controlled, which eliminates the chain controls and creates child safe blinds.

Sunscreen Roller Blinds

This type of blind features a technical woven fabric that reduces the sun’s glare, cuts infrared and UV light, whilst still allowing you to see the views outsitde. They are often used in galleries and are becoming increasingly popular in the home. They’re ideal for studies, living rooms and south facing windows, to cut reflections on computer screens, protect furniture and artwork from fading, and to keep rooms cool.

Blackout Roller Blinds

These are ideal for home cinemas and bedrooms where blocking the light is essential. For light sleepers and shift workers, blackout roller blinds can make a huge difference to sleep. They can also be used behind curtains and other roller blinds.

Thermal Roller Blinds

These blinds are made using a high performance fabric that keeps the heat in, reducing heating bills and your carbon footprint. The fabric has metallic fibres woven within it which effectively reflects heat back into the room.

Venetian Blinds

Ventian blinds are made with wood or metal slats that can be tilted, raised or lowered to control the light that is let into the room. Our wood venetian blinds are bespoke and individually made to your measurements and colour choice.

Roman blinds

These come in a variety of fabrics and can create a luxurious hotel feel. They create a soft, drapery effect and are the modern alternative to curtains.

Vertical blinds

These blinds have vertical vanes which can be tilted or drawn open to control the light. They are ideal for large windows and bifold doors as the vanes compact easily and neatly to provide minimum obstruction and maximum view. Our vertical blinds come in a range of fabrics including blackout, thermal.

Bottom up blinds

This type of blind rolls up from the bottom of the window using a tensioned pulley system. They are ideal for windows at street level or bathroom windows where privacy is required without blocking the light. All our roller blinds are available as bottom up blinds.
