Which Blinds for Which Rooms?

In this blog, we ask the Feran team in Essex for their breakdown of the different types of blinds and window dressings, and which work best in different rooms throughout the home.

As part of this, the team recommend that homeowners look at the way a room is used, how often the windows need to be covered, how good coverage needs to be, and also how big the room is. Different blinds offer different degrees of cover, from blackout to a thin layer for added privacy, and can also act as an insulating layer, a decorative accessory and part of the overall design of a space.

Without further ado, here are some of the best uses for different blinds in different rooms of your home, from roman blinds in a modern home, to motorised blinds for vast estates and curtains for more traditional spaces.

Roman Blinds in a Bedroom

Roman blinds fold up to create a decorative border across the top of the window when not in use. When seeking the right window covering for a bedroom, the beauty of Roman blinds is that they can be constructed from some of the weightier fabrics, allowing for additional insulation and a thicker covering.

Even if you opt for a lighter fabric, you can easily add a blackout lining to Roman blinds to create the perfect bedroom atmosphere.

Motorised Blinds in Bedrooms & Hard-to-Reach Locations

The benefits of motorised blinds include convenience and accessibility – whether for someone who wants to open their blinds without getting out of bed, or for those hard-to-reach windows in a vast property or particularly high-ceilinged room.

Operated by a remote, motorised blinds can present your chosen aesthetic and finish, and are an incredibly practical solution for homeowners who want to benefit from blinds which open and close at the touch of a button. We recommend these for bedrooms and high-mounted windows, but really, they can work anywhere and everywhere!

Duette Blinds in Living Spaces and Kitchens

If you want to shut out the world outside for privacy purposes and to create a cosy feel then Duette blinds are a perfect solution.

A honeycomb fabric which folds into a concertina style when folded up to allow the light in, this solution is more unique than the classic Roman blinds and feels like a more lightweight and modern alternative.

We particularly recommend Duette blinds in more compact rooms and smaller homes where the larger folds of fabric that make up Roman blinds can feel a bit too chunky.

Of course, the best thing about blinds is that they really can work anywhere, in any room throughout your home. With countless fabrics, textures, patterns, and finishes available, the team at Feran is ready to help you find the right match for your home. Get in touch to book a consultation today.
