What Style of Blinds Will Match Your Home?

When picking new blinds for your home, it can sometimes be very difficult thinking of what to go for. Which ones will match my room? What type are most suitable for me? Which ones keep out the most light? We wanted to try and make this decision a little easier for you by listing a few different types of blinds, and what they are best for.

Here are some of our top picks!

Roman blinds

Like most blinds, roman blinds are made to measure. So, they can always be the perfect fit for just about any window. They can also be very stylish and are quite classy as they’re simple but extremely well designed and come in lots of different materials, styles and patterns. Similar to roller blinds, roman blinds are quite simple and neutral and so work well with a lot of different types of rooms.

Roller blinds

Not only are roller blinds fashionable, but they are also extremely practical and will work just about anywhere. As we’ve just touched on, roller blinds are very neutral in their design so will compliment many different styles of rooms. However, although they are neutral in design, they come in all sorts of different patterns and colours to make them as tailormade to you as they possibly can be.

From a more practical point of view, roller blinds are great for adjustability. They are so simple and effective, all whilst looking sleek and great with more or less any style or colour scheme in a room. The easy adjustability allows complete control between a lot of light exposure, and very minimal light exposure.

Blackout blinds

Blackout blinds are ideal for bedrooms. If you’re the type of person who can’t sleep even if there’s just the slightest bit of light creeping through into the room, then blackout blinds are the ones for you. Even if these are just regular blinds with a blackout lining, this helps to completely block out all light, and as a result allow you to have a comfortable night’s sleep!


Curtains are sometimes matched with blinds, so the appearance of blinds isn’t always that important, but more the purpose such as blocking out light. So for example, sometimes a good approach is to pick blinds based on practicality for your room, but then go for some go for some fashionable curtains that match the whole design, style and colour scheme of the room.

Venetian blinds

If you’re not so much going for appearance, venetian blinds are one of the most practical solutions we offer. They aren’t typically a decorative piece, yet do tend to match a lot of different styles of rooms based on the simplicity of their presentation.

One of the best features of venetian blinds is that they make adjustability more specific. This means that you can control exactly how much light you want to let into the room, and youcan also stop anyone outside looking in. For example, this could be good in a living room or bedroom if it’s at the front of your house as you don’t really want people looking in. Having this control can also be really useful if you’re facing the light for most the day it means you can keep adjusting them to keep the exposure under control. Furthermore, you can get motorised versions of these blinds so that you don’t have to keep getting up and altering them but instead can pre-set timings for them to adjust, even or do it from the comfort of your seat with a remote control.
