Venetian Blinds

What are Venetian blinds? Put simply, they are blinds that have horizontal slats made from aluminium or wood. You will have seen them being used on windows in offices or in bedrooms and living room windows. The slats used in Venetian blinds are suspended by wide cloth tapes or cords that allow them to tilt up to 180 degrees. They are perfect to adjust the level of light and privacy of the room.

Traditionally Venetian blinds can be moved upward or downward by way of cords that are threaded through slots in each slat. More modern Venetian blinds come in a variety of lift options including – cordless, where the slats can be moved upward or downward using the bottom rail, or a twist pole at the side. There are motorized options available too, where you can use remote controls to tilt them.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are simple, durable blinds that are a single piece of specially manufactured fabric. The fabric is tightly and neatly rolled around a cylinder or tube (that’s where the roller part of the name comes into play). The roller tube fits horizontally along the window and can usually be fitted either inside or outside of the window recess. A sidewinder chain turns the roller cylinder to lower and raise the blind. Motorised controls are also available, giving you the option to open and close your blinds remotely.

Blind type

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds differ from standard blinds because they open from side to side rather than up and down. Vertical blinds can be made from various materials, including pleated fabrics and wood. The material selected is fastened into a headrail and is operated by a pulley system that is attached to a track. When you pull the chain or cord, the blinds move left or right. There is also usually a wand that allows you to tilt the slats in order to control the amount of light that can enter your room.

We can offer you vertical blinds in patterns and a range of colours. They are also available in blackout fabrics as well as sheer voiles for ultimate control of light and privacy.

Roman Blinds

Simple in their construction and easy to use, Roman blinds can coordinate with any room or interior design scheme. We have a myriad of plain or patterned options available for selection. Roman blinds are simple, elegant blinds which hang straight when down, and form soft pleats when raised. They are usually operated using a series of vertical cords, but there are electric options available. Unlike their modern day counterparts such as vertical and roller blinds, Roman blinds have been used for decades, even centuries, long since proving to be a practical and aesthetic solution to dressing windows.

Conservatory Blinds

Conservatory blinds are unique in that they’re dressing a space that is almost primarily glass. Of course, this much glass also means more potential for heat loss, as well as creating problems with privacy. Whether your space is a traditional conservatory, an orangery, a sloped roof sunroom or a glass extension. We can dress it.

Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds add softness and texture to your room where vertical blinds will not! They are a neat and practical solution for providing shade and privacy. While they are usually not the first style many think of when choosing blinds, they are perfect for controlling light and privacy as they are fully adjustable and can be fitted bottom-up.

Blind Type

Panel Blinds

Panel blinds are a versatile, contemporary way to control light, glare, view and privacy in any room. When open, the panels stack cosily behind one another allowing the maximum amount of light to enter the room. Sliding the blind into the closed position creates a full fabric screen that provides complete light control and privacy. They also look pretty as a room divider! This can be used to effectively create new living spaces within a modern styled home.
