  1.  Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are simple and stylish.  They are easy to install and operate.  Pull the cord to control how much sunlight the blind allows in.  They can be hung on their own or with curtains for a sumptuous layered look.  They are versatile and can be used anywhere in the house.  I like roller blinds in the kitchen, bathroom, study and bedroom.  There are many different patterns and colours to choose from.

2.  Skylight Blinds

In an attic room or extension in the past it used to be difficult to find a blind to fit the tilted  skylight window.  Thankfully things have improved and companies realise the need for these to fit perfectly.  Direct Blinds have created a range of blinds that fit VELUX® windows.  They are practical, stylish and available in a range of colours.

3.  Wooden Blinds

Bring the natural beauty of wood into your home with wooden blinds.  They compliment the popular Scandinavian style.  They are available in lots of different shades, stains and colours.  Waterproof wooden blinds are available for use in the bathroom and kitchen meaning wooden blinds are suitable for every room in the house.

5.  Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds offer a classic blind style.  They are very versatile and can be completely opened, twisted or closed to let in varying amounts of light.  There are now many more shades and colours of vertical blinds available.  I particularly like vertical blinds in a study but they are suitable throughout the house.

6.  Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are gorgeous and make a focal point in any room.  The pleated style of these blinds allows just enough shade in blocking and letting light in.  They are available in a  variety of shades and different patterns to suit any home decor.

7.  Venetian Blinds

Aluminium Venetian blinds can be used in any room for a modern style.  They offer a great deal of flexibility of how much sunlight you let into the room and can be completely open or closed.  They look great on full length windows and doors.

8.  Blackout Blinds

Blackout blinds are the saviours of parents everywhere.  Get a better night’s sleep all year around by blocking out the sun from your bedroom during the early hours.  They are also handy for rooms that take in too much sun.

9.  Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds (or plissé) are a versatile alternative to a Venetian or roller blind. They feature slim top and bottom rails that draw up to the top of the window neatly when not in use.   Pleated blinds take up less room compared to other types of blind, while still granting a room an attractive, smart effect.

    I would prefer blinds right through but my partner prefers curtains as he says they are warmer as they let less draught through, I have blinds in my teenage sons bedroom as he wanted them, and in my bathroom as they are easier, ive got to decorate my girls bedroom and then they will be having blinds too xxx
