Which Blinds Are Right for You?

newton blinds_0

When buying new blinds for your home, it can be quite difficult to choose between the huge eray of different types out there, especially if you don’t know much about them. Whilst blinds are one of our main products, we thought we’d be able to offer you a little bit of advice on the various types, and which ones are used for different purposes.

So, how do I know which blinds to choose?

At Newton le Willows Blinds and Curtains, we provide several different types of blinds. So, here’s a little breakdown of each one, and what they are best for:

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are perfect for any living space, and are ideal for long windows. Despite being able to cover the whole surface of the window and block out light, they can also be easily tucked away to the side and kept looking neat and tidy whilst you let in the sunlight during the day.

Because we want to give our customers the best quality products, we ensure that the fabric used to make our vertical blinds provides more benefits than just covering up your windows. So, we offer a Solar Protected Coating (SPC) range, which retains heat during winter, and reflects it during summer. Ideal don’t you think?!

String blinds

String blinds are the perfect way to add a bit of life to your room. Similar to our vertical blinds, they convey a temporary, retro style and come in a selection of 27 fantastic colours, so that you can find the perfect fit.

Furthermore, not only are these a great choice of blinds, but they are also great to use as a fly screen in your household, and look pretty great whilst they do the job!

Roller blinds

As one of our more simple, yet most easily compatible within any space they are situated, our roller blinds are the perfect solution for all rooms in the house. With a bit of a ‘less is more’ feel about them, roller blinds are rather plain to the eye, but can be styled perfectly and compliment any room within your home.

Aside from appearance, our roller blinds are extremely practical. They can be easily adjusted by height, to let in just the right amount of light for you, and we also offer a blackout fabric, as well as a water resistant option for your bathroom.

Duorol blinds

Is privacy your biggest priority within your home? Look no further, duorol blinds are everything you need and more! Allowing you to make adjustments and let in as much light as is necessary, our duorol blinds are ideal for letting you control the privacy in your room. The way these blinds are built, means that you are able to see outside as little or as much as you’d like, but it is much harder for those on the outside to see into your room.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds are arguably the most well-known type of blinds you can get, and it’s not hard to see why. These blinds give you a lot of control around how much light passes through and gets into your room, by simply adjusting the pivoted slats used to construct them.

At Newton le Willows Blinds & Curtains, we sell our venetian blinds in different colours, sizes and styles so that they are tailormade to suit your home, and they also come in the choice of wooden, aluminium, or an aluminium wood effect.


Shutters are an extremely practical kind of blinds. They are made with our finest materials, and offer great security as well as the perfect amount of light, as they also block out any noise from the outside. These blinds add an impeccable finishing touch to any room, and are tailormade to suit you. One thing that makes shutters stand out, is the fact that they can fit in just about any area that you’d like them to go, whatever shape your window may be.

Motorised blinds

The one stand-out quality of motorised blinds, is that they provide complete blackout. This means that they don’t let in any light whatsoever into the room that they are used in.

Roman Blinds

Made with some of the finest quality fabrics and materials, roman blinds add an elegant and majestic touch to any room. They are easily adjustable and allow you to control the shading of your room.

Pleated blinds

Simple yet practical – pleated blinds can filter just the right amount of light into your room, and even when they’re tucked away, they still look extremely neat and tidy and and a fantastic decorative touch to the room.

Conservatory blinds

Finally, a conservatory is probably the most exposed part of any house, and so we think it’s important that there are blinds made to specifically fit these areas. Due to the high amount of light that is let in at all angles of a conservatory, we make blinds to fit any panel of glass, and with varying amount of coverage so that you can choose how much light you want blocked out.

With all of that in mind, we hope you now have a bit of a clearer understanding as to the type of blinds you are looking for. We would love to help, so get in touch with us today and we can help provide the perfect blinds for you!
