Types of Window Blinds

Blinds may not be one of the first things you think about when considering home decor, but they should be. Far from being "just window dressing", blinds also serve a very practical, and even very prudent function. Sure, they look great, but there's more to blinds than aesthetic appeal. The best type of blind for you will depend on what you want from your window covering, and this will depend on your space, as well as personal preferences.

So what are you looking for?

Insulation

Considering up to 50% of a home's heating and cooling can be lost through windows, it's not surprising that many people use blinds to help insulate their homes. The right types of blinds will help significantly reduce your energy costs by slashing heating and cooling bills. What's more, insulating blinds are an eco-conscious choice, since using less energy reduces your carbon footprint. Everybody wins.

 

The Best Blinds for Insulation

Honeycomb Blinds

In addition to looking sleek and sophisticated, the structural design of Honeycomb blinds works wonders to regulate your home's temperature. Available in single or double cell, Honeycomb blinds can filter or block light, which in turn helps to absorb and control the amount of unwanted heat let into a room through the windows, keeping it cool in the hotter months. Likewise, this protective barrier will keep warm air inside your home in the winter. The ability to control light also helps minimise or completely eliminate UV rays from coming into your home, which can damage and fade furniture and flooring.

Made from the highest quality materials, Honeycomb blinds can be customised to fit your window perfectly, and since they come in a range of colours, they're able to integrate beautifully into your space. The end result is a stylish and functional window treatment with an energy saving-solution that works to minimise the financial impact on your wallet, and the environmental impact on the planet.

 

Benefits:

  • Excellent insulator
  • Good value for money
  • Available in cordless options, so safe for children
  • Excellent for room darkening
  • Effective for noise dampening

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds continue to be one of the most enduring and beloved types of blinds. Elegant and polished, they are also known for their ability to offer powerful temperature regulation.

While Roman blinds are often referred to as blinds, they are actually more of a shade, since the covering is one complete piece of material. It is precisely this uniform construction that makes them so effective when it comes to keeping unwanted heat and cold out, allowing you to more effectively and affordably control the temperature in your home. Saving on heating and cooling bills also means you're helping to reduce your energy consumption, which also makes Roman blinds an eco-friendly solution.

Available in a variety of colours and made from the finest materials, Roman blinds can be customised to fit your windows down to the millimetre, so you're getting all the protection you need to keep your home comfortable.

Benefits:

  • Excellent insulator
  • Available in cordless options, so safe for children
  • Room darkening
  • Timeless style

Blockout Blinds

Blockout blinds are the blinds sweet dreams are made of. Thanks to the light blocking technology of these window coverings, you can enjoy total darkness when and where you need it.

Blockout blinds are particularly popular types of blinds for bedrooms. By totally eliminating light, they create the ideal environment for a fantastic night's sleep. They're also popular for use in rec rooms and home theatres. No light means no glare to diminish a perfect viewing experience. And since you can customise your blind to fit your window as well as your colour scheme, these blinds will seamlessly and stylishly integrate into your space.

Cordless and motorised blinds are a particularly smart pick if your space is frequented by children. No cords means no safety risks. In fact, cordless blackout roller blinds are one of the top picks for nurseries and children’s bedrooms.

These are the types of blinds you pick when you want serious control. Top down bottom up blinds allow you to adjust for privacy and light by allowing the blinds to move down from the top, or up from the bottom.

The applications for top down bottom up blinds are vast, ranging from offices to kitchens to bedrooms and living rooms. They can be customised to your window dimensions, in colours that complement your tastes.

The Best Blinds for Sliding Doors

Honeycomb Vertical Blinds

Vertical Honeycomb blinds were made for sliding doors that take a lot of heat. The cellular design of Honeycomb blinds serves to regulate the temperature of the room by trapping the hot air in pockets, thereby preventing it from getting into your home and turning your cool paradise into a sweltering sauna. Same goes for cold air: the pockets hold onto the chill and keep it from inferring with the temperature in your home. Since sliding doors are the source of a lot of unwanted temperature transfer, these blinds are miracle workers.
