Blinds offer an alternative window covering if you want a different option to curtains, especially if they won’t suit the room. In some cases, curtains just don’t fit the aesthetic. The great thing about blinds is there is a style suitable for all types of rooms. Most people usually consider them for kitchens and bathrooms only. But there are so many styles, constructions and designs which open up many possibilities. They combine function and decoration, making them an important option when designing the interior of your home or workplace.

Roman Blinds – its origins date back about 2000 years to the ancient Roman empire. Starting as a functional means of keeping dust and dirt out of buildings with glassless windows and allowing privacy. Over the centuries they have evolved with new materials and mechanisms into the blinds we know today. Constructed from a single sheet of material, they now fold and drape elegantly when fully open. Revealing their full colour and pattern when fully or partially lowerwed.
Venetian Blinds – these familiar horizontally slatted blinds date back to the middle east and not Venice as is the common misconception. It is believed historically that Venetian traders brought them to Europe through their trade interactions with Persia. Available today in a range of materials with vinyl, plastic and wooden materials as slats. These are a very popular form of window covering.
Vertical Blinds – a 20th century invention, the vertical blind was invented in 1950 in the USA. They are particularly useful for larger windows and patio doors. Their vertical elongated structure is good for covering glazing with height to afford good light control and privacy.
