12 Best Types of Window Blind

Transform your home with some beautiful window blinds. Both practical and pretty, there are types of blinds for every type of home and interior design.


Vision Blinds

If you’re looking for window blinds that can provide you with privacy through the day, while still letting the light in, and keep the world out at night, take a look at our day and night vision blinds. They work on a very simple principle, with an additional layer of horizontal translucent strips that can be raised or lowered depending on your needs.

Controls and brackets are hidden from view in the overhead rail cassette – this makes them an even more aesthetically pleasing option, and one which would grace any home which values its style as much as practicality.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are amongst the most versatile window coverings you can opt for. They can be made from a wide range of fabrics in all manner of colours, patterns and textures.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are stylish, classic and very effective at providing shade.

Roman blinds are particularly good for spaces when you want to block out light. A wide array of thicker blackout fabrics can be used to help create the pleats when the product is folded. These are also excellent at blocking out light and providing the level of shade you want. As a result you can commonly see these blinds in bedrooms and living areas, although they can be used anywhere you wish.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds have an immediate advantage over other products when you are dealing with tall windows. The slats can be very long, allowing the blind to effectively cover the entire window when shade and privacy are needed. On top of this, they are also aesthetically pleasing.

Wooden Blinds

Wooden blinds are a highly popular and classic way to cover your windows. These blinds offer perfect shade and privacy around your home and serve to give a distinct and beautiful look which enhances the rest of your interior decor, whether it is contemporary or traditional. The properties of wood provide you with even more benefits, as they are not prone to damage or discolouration by direct sunlight and will remain looking their best for years to come.

Perfect Fit Blinds

Perfect Fit blinds are designed to be used on uPVC windows and doors and are often used in conservatories, although they are versatile enough to be used in other rooms too if required.

Velux Blinds

Velux windows are a fantastic addition to any home and allow lofts or attics to be transformed into a useful and beautiful space.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds have a classic style that remains very popular to this day. They are highly functional while also being aesthetically pleasing and stylish. This makes them a great choice for all kinds of spaces, including every room in the home and in offices, restaurants and shops too.

Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds are perfect for those who want to have the stylish look of Venetian blinds or shutters, yet would prefer to have the total privacy of a roller blind. As they meet both the design features and the characteristic qualities of the two main forms of blinds most widely used in the UK, it is little wonder that pleated blinds are becoming increasingly popular.
