When it comes to home renovations and revamping, it can be hard to decide which window blinds are right for your home. A comfortable home interior is one that ticks all the boxes of functionality, while also displaying a sense of unique personality and style. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of excellent home designs featuring four different styles of window blinds. Learn their perks and decide which ones suit your interior plans perfectly.
Timeless Window Shutters
Window shutters, otherwise known as plantation shutters, add classic and timeless sophistication to any home interior. The lounge space shown above features soft cream-toned walls and carpet, which is balanced beautifully by the deep tones of the furnishings and wall decor. While the living space is modestly sized, the large windows and lush furniture makes the area feel spacious and open. Because of their flat, space-saving design, window shutters are an efficient option to consider for small rooms and large rooms alike!
Sunscreen Roller Blinds
Incorporating sunscreen roller blinds into your room plan is both fashionable and efficient. Sunscreen blinds are easy to use and are available in a wide variety of fabric colours to suit any home décor. During the hottest months of the year, roller blinds can reduce up to 97% of heat from entering a room, meaning you won’t need to worry about suffering the humidity of an unpleasant living room in summer! In the above image, the classic white walls are vibrantly contrasted by rich timber floorboards, and the whole layout is brought together by the ornate lounge sofa and roller blinds in matching tones of grey. While the furniture is situated right next to the window, there is no need to worry about them becoming sun-damaged. As long as they are drawn down during the hottest part of the day, sunscreen blinds will effectively ensure the longevity of your furnishings.
Hanging Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are an ideal choice for rooms with long windows or ranch sliders, but they can also be used strategically to add a sense of height to low-ceilinged rooms. As shown above, the vertical blinds smoothly hang down in strips from the ceiling, covering the long glass windows and sliders efficiently. Because of the easy 180-degree rotation ability of the blades, light and privacy can be easily adjusted. They can also be stacked to either side or drawn from the middle for ultimate manoeuvrability, and enjoyment of the view.
Elegant Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds can be casual and stylish additions for any home. Available in a wide variety of colours and materials such as aluminium, wood, and faux-wood, venetian blinds can be used to complement furnishings in any room of the house, be it the kitchen, living room, or bathroom. The enchanting layout of the lounge space in the above image is aesthetically pleasing and designed for maximum comfort. The rich timber flooring contrasts the grey tones of the couch and walls, while the bright windows let in the natural light to reflect off the floorboards beautifully. Even though venetian blinds give you maximum visibility outdoors, your privacy is still effortlessly maintained, and fully adjustable.
