How to modernise your home with blinds

Blinds are quite easily one of the most overlooked interior decorating features. While commonplace in the office or shop environment, at home they are often not the first choice, with curtains being the preferred option. But if you are looking for a simple but effective way to bring your home décor into 2022, you really can’t go wrong by incorporating blinds into your space.

With the right sort of blinds, used in the right kind of space, you can improve the overall aesthetic of your home without having to change everything else in the room. Blinds not only add some impressive style to the home, but they can also have an immensely helpful practical purpose.

Choosing the right kind of blinds

In the modern world of interior décor, the options when it comes to blinds are quite extensive, with each of the options being different in some way from the others.

How to modernise your home with blinds, you will need to begin the process by first ensuring that you have chosen the right type.

Each kind of blind will come with its own benefits, so to speak, and some kinds are more suitable to living spaces, while others might look a lot better in an office.

Roller Blinds

These blinds are not your conventional kind, in that they are a single “sheet” of material, on a roller. The roller blind is made to do pretty much as it says, which is that they roll down when you want to close them, and up when you are looking to let in more light. The roller blind works with a pull cord and because they are quite simple and often a lot more affordable than your other options, they tend to be quite a popular option. 

Available in an array of different colours, these blinds will look great in any space you place them and a lot of them come with a protective coating, which makes it possible for these kinds of blinds to be used in spaces that get a lot of moisture, like kitchens and bathrooms.

Venetian Blinds

The Venetian Blind is a really popular option and it is easily one of the most recognisable types of blinds on the market these days. Although often used in the office environment, they are also quite a fantastic option if you are looking for a way to make your home space a more modern one. Venetian Blinds can be made from all sorts of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. These blinds are quite easy to take care of, with just a quick wipe down restoring their shine.

Much like other blinds, these generally come in a variety of colours, giving you more options when it comes to matching the blinds to the room you are placing them in. The Venetian Blinds are also quite fantastically functional and will add to the beauty of any space.

Vertical Blinds

These blinds are the floor-to-ceiling type that you probably had in your local library when growing up. For this reason, and many others, vertical blinds might not be the best option for your modern design aspirations. But for the sake of giving you all of the options, we’re going to talk about these anyway.

So, vertical blinds hang from a track and they can both slide along this track, opening the window completely, or they can be partially opened, and for this reason, when using these blinds in the home, they can be better in a room that gets a lot of light.

Pleated Blinds

These come with a few different names, but the principle stays the same. They are simple, easy to use, and they are even suitable for a child’s bedroom, the pleated blinds work in much the same way as the roller blinds and because of the way that they are made, they can be great for temperature control.
