When you are looking at choosing a blind for different rooms in the house you might be wondering where is best for certain types of blinds and why. Roman blinds might be ones you like the look of but where do you have them installed? Here are some ideas for types of blinds and where you might put them.
Ideas for the living room
When you are looking at options for a room that needs light to come in during the day then you might want something like sunscreen roller blinds. They will let you have some privacy still while also letting in some light. They are stylish and you can even get motorised blinds in this style if you want that convenience. Roman blinds would also work in this room.
You want to consider that often the window in the kitchen is near the sink. You would want something there that does not have problems with water and is easy to clean like Aluminium or EcowoodVenitian blinds. Other options that are popular in the kitchen are roller blinds and sunscreen roller blinds as they are easy to wipe clean.
The blinds you want in the bedroom are the ones that are very good at blocking out light, might even block out light and some sound, and give you great privacy. Roman blinds would work here are some kind of block out blind.
Bathroom window treatment ideas
There are issues of humidity and moisture in the bathroom so you need to consider blinds that will not be damaged by that over time. There is also the factor of whether it is possible the blinds will get hit with direct water now and then, kids splashing or the window is near the shower! Wood blinds are not a good idea here as they warp. Ecowood or aluminium roller blinds would work.
Child bedrooms, nurseries and playrooms
In these rooms, you need to think about safety and durability. Children mess around in them, and you do not want them to get caught in the chain or cord. Make sure they cannot reach these things from their cots or beds. In a nursery and bedroom, you might want a blockout blind, especially when they are napping in the day and the sun might be bothering them.
Considering sliding and French doors
Roller blinds work well on sliding doors and they take up less space as well. The issue some have with Roman or Venetian blinds is the slats take up extra space when wound up. You can choose motorised blinds. Make sure the door handle does not get in the way of the blind’s movement when opening or closing. With French doors, it makes sense to go with what you have on the windows in that room already. Make sure that you consider where the controls for the blinds hang or go. You want them on the side of the door where the hinges are not where the handle is.
