Top 5 tips for choosing blinds

Darren Palmer’s tips for choosing the perfect blinds

Blinds enhance any interior with the added benefit of simple functionality and light control. Whether it’s for added privacy
or to add the finishing touches to your home, blinds are a perfect way to complement popular interior styling.

Choosing The Right Blinds For The Living Room

Carpet Court ambassador and interior designer, Darren Palmer, shares his tips
to finding the perfect blinds for any home.

 

1. Always choose the blind option that suits your light requirements 

For a room ready for sleep, I recommend a full block-out, but for living spaces you may not want to completely shut of the sun.

2. Choose the blind option that suits your privacy requirements 

Choosing The Right Blinds For The Hallway

Daytime privacy can be achieved with a sheer window treatment, but nighttime privacy generally only comes with an opaque option. 

3. Consider spaces that need both light and privacy

Think about having a sheer and a block-out option installed on the same windows.

4. Blinds and automisation go hand-in-hand

For a little extra money you can install motors on roller blinds so you get that touch of a button convenience.

Choosing The Right Blinds For Your Home

5. If you're renovating or building allow a rebate in the ceiling

A rebate in the ceiling where windows are located can hide the tracks, rolls or mechanisms of your blinds to give your room the most streamlined look. 

Carpet Court offer an extensive range of blinds including Roller Blinds, Sunscreen Blinds, Roman Blinds, Vertical Blinds, Plantation Shutters, Timber Venetians and Panel Blinds.
