A Quick Guide to Choosing Blinds for Your Bedroom

Depending on the time of day, light can either be a godsend or an utter nuisance in the bedroom.

During the day, it’s great to allow plenty of natural light into the bedroom. However, when we decide to go to sleep, there are few things more distracting.

When it comes to blocking out that pesky light, there are plenty of options available, namely blinds and curtains.

We spoke to blinds supplier UK Blinds and Shadings in Newcastle who explained that “in recent years, there has been a gradual move by many to switch from curtains to blinds.”

“while curtains look great in big spaces, such a large living room windows, they can look messy and cluttered in smaller ones. Depending on your choice, blinds can look stylish no matter the room.”

With that in mind, here’s our quick guide to choosing blinds for your bedroom.2

Vertical Blinds

The perfect all-rounder, vertical blinds look great and work well in pretty much every room in the house.

They hold a couple of advantages over horizontal blinds. Firstly, they are much less likely to collect dust than any horizontal blinds. So if you tend not too frequently dust down your bedroom, these might be a good move.

Secondly, vertical blinds are easier to operate, perfect for when you lazily reach from your bed in a morning to allow in the morning sunshine.

Roman Blinds

If you’re in the market for some bedroom blinds, you might well be looking for some that will blackout everything.

Roman blinds are perfect for this. Usually on the heavier side, these stylish blinds are becoming increasingly popular in bedrooms.

Also, they only have two positions, up or down, which makes them a less popular choice for other rooms in the house.

They take their name from the Roman Empire, from which they originated, where they were used as awnings over patrons watching events in the coliseum.

Venetian Blinds

A very popular choice all over the home because of the range of different materials available.

These classy blinds were first introduced back in the 1700’s by Gowin Knight in England. However, they can be traced back as far as ancient Egypt.

The versatility of these blinds makes them popular in bedrooms. If you plan on enjoying your Sunday in bed, you can just open the blinds slightly. If you want more light you can open them all the way, or better still, roll them entirely up.

Roller Blinds

Very similar to Roman blinds, roller blinds come in a number of different materials to suit your bedroom styling’s, but are among the better choices for a blackout blind.

This comes in particularly handy if you work unconventional hours and sleep during daylight, or if you are kept awake by the nearby street lights.

Roller blinds are also more versatile than roman blinds, so f you like the idea of being able to allow some light into a room, but not all, then they are a wise choice.

Depending on the style of your bedroom, or your individual needs, hopefully, you’ll now be able to settle on the right type of blinds for your bedroom.
