Blinds are a popular window treatment, and for good reason. As well as offering a simple and easy to maintain way to control light in the room and enjoy complete privacy, window blinds are available in a wide range of designs, colours and materials. Whilst this is an advantage, with various colour schemes and themes able to be complemented with window blinds, the sheer choice available makes finding the perfect window blind particularly difficult.

In this blog post, our experts share their top tips for choosing the right type of window blind for the most used room in your home – the lounge.

Know your window blind types

There’s a long list of window blind types available, which makes doing your research a vital part of sourcing the perfect blinds for your lounge. Each window blind type offers its own advantages, here are just a selection of the window blinds available:

  • Roller: These are particularly popular and affordable. This cord operated design is great for informal settings, and can even have different fabrics and prints on each side. They can also be cut to size easily to fit your lounge window perfectly.
  • Roman: This blind type provides an elegant addition to any room, and is more formal than the roller blind. There’s a huge range of fabrics and linings to choose from too.
  • Venetian: Unlike roman and roller blinds, Venetian blinds are slatted and tend to be made from wood, metal or plastic. These are more popular in kitchens or bathrooms but are great for rooms where light needs to be filtered, like your home office or a light-flooded lounge.
  • Vertical: An oldie but goodie, vertical blinds have long been the go-to in commercial buildings but thanks to their wide choice of designs are great options for your lounge too.

Measure your window

Determining the size and fitting requirements of your window may make it easier to select a window blind that best suits your lounge.

Decide whether you want your window blind to fit inside or outside the recess. If your lounge is on the smaller side with minimal wall space around the window, inside the recess would be better. Larger or brighter lounges however will want to take advantage of the light filtering power of positioning their window blind outside the recess.
