How to Choose the Right Blinds for your Home

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing the best blinds for your home. It’s important to go with blinds that not only have a beautiful appearance but also provide the functionality you require. To make the decision process as simple and as quick as possible, we have given some points to consider when selecting the ideal blind for your home.

What Room Are Your Blinds Going In?

Your bedroom is for sleeping, your living room is for relaxing, and your kitchen is for cooking. Each area in your home has a specific impact on the way you live. Different rooms have different needs, so when choosing the perfect Blinds4You consider the function of the room.

Your living room is the heart of the house since it offers as an area to unwind while showing off your personality. This is why you should add the Bruges Smoke Black Wooden Blinds to bring contemporary fashion and refinement to your living room.


Bedroom blinds should have multiple uses, including light control, thermally efficient, and be stylish. Your bedroom is where you can unwind and get a good night's sleep with Opal Nori Cream Vertical Blinds.

The importance of setting up a focused and practical home office has increased as more and more people make the switch to working from home. Roller blinds allow you to do this with Barcelona Tiffany Blue Roller Blinds.


Consider the Positioning of your Blinds

There are two main ways to fit your window coverings which are “inside recess” and “outside recess”. Certain blinds look best with a specific fitting but it’s your decision what looks better for your home, follow our measuring guide to learn more. Both blind fittings come with their individual benefits that can be used for different purposes and different blinds, but which one will be best for you and your home?

Inside the recess is usually recommended for Roller blinds, Venetian blinds, and Vertical blinds. When placed inside the recess it will create a neat and tidy fix but also allow a nice blend to the window frame especially when it’s a Wooden blind.

Outside the recess is ideal for any blinds but is a great option for Roman blinds. Fitting your Roman blind outside the recess reduces light escaping round the sides of the fabric, perfect for bedrooms. Fitting your blinds outside the recess means you aren’t restricted by the size of blind, so you can cover the whole window space.

Choosing a Blind Type

Deciding between all the fabulous and stylish blinds is the hardest part of it all. There are many styles to choose from, but not all will suit every room. So, what blind will be best for you?

Roller Blinds are a classic and simple design that offer many benefits to your home:
