Choosing the Right Blinds for You

There are many different choices of indoor blinds available to you at Sun Stop Blinds. Making the right choice for your home or office space can be confusing, and there are many materials and styles to consider. At Sun Stop Blinds we are dedicated to helping you make the right decision for your individual needs. Our free measure and quote includes an onsite style and colour consultation, but you may also like to consider the following tips:
Privacy – Venetians have come a long way over the years, and are still considered the best option if privacy is your priority. The adjustable slats enable you to see out, whilst preventing the outside world from looking in. Timber is now a popular choice, adding warmth and atmosphere to any room, and aluminium venetians also provide a stylish finish without clashing with your furnishings.

Aspect of your room – Does your room attract the harsh westerly afternoon sun? Or does it have a gentler northern aspect? If your space receives significant sun exposure, a roller blind made from polyester and PVC mesh may be just what you’re after. This sunscreen fabric has a UV 50 sun protection factor, but due to its translucence, still allows the light in and won’t interrupt your view. These kinds of blinds are perfect in beach or bayside apartments, or commercial offices. Alternately, if regulating room temperature is your priority, you may prefer a roller blind in a block out fabric to help keep your home cosy in winter and cool in summer.

Use of space – Ultimately, the kind of blind you choose will vary according to the kind of room you are decorating. For example, the light and privacy control provided by venetian or vertical blinds is popular for kitchens and family rooms, but a bedroom or media room may require full block out, which is effectively provided by roller blinds. A child’s room/nursery may attract the use of a roller blind, for its ease of use and the ease with which it can be cleaned.

Of course, making the right choice often comes down to personal preference, and at Sun Stop Blinds we are more than happy to discuss all of the options available. It is important to us that you make a decision you are comfortable with to suit the needs of your home or office.
