Screening Options For The Living Room

Of all the rooms in the house, the living room is the main communal area where the family rests and relaxes and when it comes to screening, blinds definitely have a lot going for them. Curtains are very bulky and they tend to gather dirt and dust, while made to measure blinds are designed to be unobtrusive, stylish and very functional indeed.

You may not be aware of just how many different types of blinds there are available today, and for those who prefer to examine all of their options, here are some of the more popular styles of blinds that are adorning living rooms around the UK.

Vertical Blinds

If your home has a modern look, vertical blinds are perfect and with a choice of rich fabric colours, you can create a visually appealing feature that is easy to adjust. Vertical blinds are easier to keep clean than Venetian units as the dust does not settle on the slats.

Vertical blinds incorporate a smooth tracking mechanism and like Venetian blinds, the slats can be tilted, which makes it easy to achieve the right combination of privacy and visibility. The units can be custom built and you can choose the slat widths, ensuring the screening is ideally suited to the décor of the room.

Venetian Blinds

The classic look of the Venetian blind will never be out of fashion and they are perfect for the living room, as you can adjust the required level of privacy and light. If your living room incorporated timber, why not get wooden Venetian blinds customised by Made to Measure Blinds, a leading bespoke blinds supplier in the UK. The timber comes in a range of light, medium and dark tones, allowing you to select something that really fits in with the existing décor.

Pleated Blinds

If you would like screening that really makes a statement, a set of pleated blinds in a rich colour will provide a focal point for the room. If you deal with an established supplier that fabricates the blinds to the customer’s precise measurements, installing is very easy. An online supplier would have easy to follow instructions on how to accurately measure your windows, ensuring the blinds will fit perfectly.

Roller Blinds

Great for the times when you want to black out the room, roller blinds come in a range of rich colours and patterns. They can be fitted flush with the interior or inside the window reveal, which does help the screening to blend in. There are many fabric colour options, ensuring you find something that looks like it belongs.

If you would like to explore the potential that window blinds offer, an online search will take you to the website of an established UK supplier and once you have selected the ideal style and colour, simply enter your window measurements into the form provided and make a secure online payment. Your made to measure blinds will be delivered to your door within a couple of weeks.
