What Are the Most Common Types of Blinds?

When it comes to blinds for your house, there is a huge variety available on the market nowadays. There are hundreds of types of blinds, designs, sizes, colours, and whatnot. With all those variables in mind, how can you make sure that whatever you choose suits your style? If you're in the market for some new blinds, here are some of the most common types of blinds you can choose from.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are created out of a piece of stiff fabric and can be opened or closed through a simple spring mechanism. With these blinds, you have a lot of extra features you could choose from depending on your personality.

For example, if you're a light sleeper and you want to avoid the morning light from the sun, you can opt for the black-out roller blinds. These blinds completely block any light from entering your room, allowing you to sleep for as long as you want. Black-out blinds are also useful for your floors and furniture. Excessive light from the sun can ultimately damage or discolour your furniture and flooring, especially if you have vinyl or wooden floors.

Roman Blinds

When looking to buy a roman blind for your house, one of the most important aspects is the material. With roman blinds, there is no universal material like there is with roller blinds. You can choose from dozens of materials, including silk, cotton, linen, hemp, faux leather, and so on. These blinds have become popular because of their ease of use; you have a cord mechanism which you use to open and close them.

The primary advantage of roman shades is their timeless style. Roman blinds, in their present form, have been around for decades and tend not to cycle in terms of popularity with latest trends. They also offer a specific softness to your window, something that you don't see with other types of coverings such as roller blinds.

Venetian Blinds

These are the blinds that most people are familiar with. They often have horizontal metal or plastic slats of different sizes. These are extremely versatile, as they allow you to easily put the blinds up and down whenever you want to control the amount of light from the sun.

These types of blinds are generally used to give your house a more traditional look, and are more likely to appeal to a wider amount of buyers. They are perfect if you want to have the highest amount of privacy for your house, and can often help keep a cosy atmosphere in your house.

Tips For Organising Your Child's Room

Kids aren't known for their love of tidying their toys away, and my kids are no different. I used to struggle to keep their toys and clothes organised without limiting their ability to play and enjoy their bedroom, but not being able to find anything is no fun for them or me. I changed the layout of their room and started building a short organising routine into my weekly schedule. I started this blog to share what's worked for my family, and I post about a range of topics, such as making use of dead space, paring down toys, safe storage solutions and managing the influx of holiday and birthday gifts. I hope you find this blog useful and enjoyable.
