What you need to know about finding a blinds installer

There is a wide variety ofwindow blinds available almost any need or décor offering shading, privacy and warmth. Get to know the features of the blinds you choose and select an installer who has experience of fitting these blinds. If you are not buying made to measure and your blind does not fit exactly you may have to trim it. This can be a bit tricky and needs precision and some specialist tools.

Some of the most popular are outlined below:

  • Venetian Blinds Venetian blinds are typically made from metal, PVC or timber slats that are affixed to a cloth tape.  They work by a cord attached to a pulley system.  Venetian blinds are available in a range of colours, sizes and width and allow you to control the amount of light and air that enters the room at any given time.  Venetian blinds are particularly good if you are after a modern look in your home.

  • Vertical Blinds vertical blinds are composed of strips of fabric or timber that are suspended from a head rail.  They are similar to Venetian blinds but the slats are vertical rather than horizontal.  Vertical blinds are extremely practical and are great for larger areas such as large windows or sliding doors.  If you want to be able to control the amount of light and air that enters your home, vertical blinds are a good choice.

  • Panel Drapes - similar to vertical blinds - panel drape blinds have a multiple tracking system that allows flat panels of material to slide across the window or door that is covered.  The panels can be centre-opening or situated to one side, depending on where the particular blind is being used.  These blinds work particularly well in contemporary homes and are ideal for large areas of glass.

  • Honeycomb Blinds honeycomb blinds have a unique honeycomb cell construction that traps air in the cells, making them ideal for insulation purposes.  Honeycomb blinds are structured in such a way that the top and the bottom of the blind can be operated independently, meaning that you can have the top of the blind open for light without compromising privacy.  These blinds are available in a wide range of colours and textures and can be fitted to almost any type of window, including skylights, arched windows, and angled windows. This type of blinds is not very popular in the UK hence you may have to source them from abroad.

  • Roller/Holland Blinds roller blinds are made from stiffened fabric that simply rolls on to or off a tube when it is raised or lowered.  They can be scalloped at the bottom and have the addition of braids or other trim to match the décor.  Double roller blinds are also available and this is where two blinds are fitted to the same bracket.  Usually one blind is transparent to let the sunlight through while the other is a heavier blind to block out the light and to provide privacy.  These blinds are functional and economical.

  • Pleated Blinds pleated blinds have horizontal pleats that form a concertina, or accordion effect.  They fold into a small area when fully raised so they are ideal for situations where you want to maximize your view.  Pleated blinds are useful for windows that are on an angle and skylights and look particularly good against small windows or recesses.

  • Roman Blinds roman blinds are soft fabric blinds that fold into pleats when they are raised.  The folds can be either flat folds or tear drop style.  Roman blinds have the advantage of being able to use any of the fabrics that can be used for curtains, making them very versatile.  However, to fully block out light, consider adding a block out lining.

  • Conservatory Blinds As the name suggests, these types of blinds are fitted against the glass of a conservatory or summer room. It is best to buy them from a specialist manufacturer as they have to be carefully fitted to your room. Conservatory blinds block out sunlight and can also help keep warmth in during colder weather.
