The Right Blinds for the Summer

In the middle of summer, it can be nice to have the option to close the blinds when the sun gets a little too bright or too hot!  We love blinds because they can really change the dimensions of a room easily.  Take vertical blinds as an example – these elongate your room, making the ceiling appear higher, which is great for small rooms to make them feel bigger.  These usually come in a wide range of fabrics and finishes so you can find the perfect match.

Venetian blinds (horizontal slats) are a nice option for kitchens and bathrooms, as they are usually made from wood, plastic or metal which will withstand steam and warmth.  White is a classic look, but different shades of wooden colours can add a warm look to the room.

Roman blinds are a contemporary favourite, with a myriad options for colours, patterns and fabrics.  Choose a lightweight or sheer fabric for a light summer look, or back a patterned blind with a balckout or thermal lining for an extra layer of darkness at night.
