When it comes to finding “blind installation near me”, first it’s important to understand your specific individual requirements. What is your reason for choosing blinds? Blinds are typically a long-term purchase for your home, so you want to be 100% confident with your choice.

So, what factors should you consider? Find out more here and how our blind fitting service can help you.

Style

The first step is deciding on a blind style. All blinds have their own unique look and can help complete your chosen aesthetic throughout your home. Though all our blinds are great choices, some might not fit your overall style. So, the design should match the theme of your room and your own preferences.

Venetian blinds are currently very fashionable and in style. They are a less expensive option if you like the appearance of white shutters, particularly those with wide slats. These are ideal for living room areas that are more minimalistic. 

Or, consider roller blinds for windows that are in constant use or accessed frequently, such as sliding doors. All while offering a modern and streamlined look.

Privacy and Light Control

Another factor to consider is how much light control and privacy you will want in your room. Are you looking for a complete blackout once the blinds are drawn? Or, are you looking to control how much light enters the room? 

One of the main differences between curtains and blinds, besides the obvious appearance, is that blinds have a much wider capability of light control. Curtains are either open or closed. Whereas, certain blind styles have the option to change the angle of the slats and control how much light enters the room. Venetian blinds are ideal in these situations, especially in living room areas. Homeowners simply have to change the slats so that the cord operation tilts the blinds at the chosen angle. 

But, what about when you are needing complete privacy? Fabric block-out blinds are a popular choice for bedrooms as they provide a dark space that helps restful sleep. 

Child Safety

When it comes to homes that have small children, considerations have to be made regarding their safety. 

Some blinds have cords and chains to operate them and these must be kept out of the reach of babies and young children. This is achieved by a ‘P’ clip or cleat that is attached to the wall at a safe height, normally 1.5m from the floor.  It is a legal requirement that all new blinds are supplied to conform with the child safety regulations. Professional installers must fit safety devices and explain their use. There are no exceptions in homes. If you are installing your own blinds, make sure you read the instructions and fit any safety device.

Alternatively, why not go cordless? Motorised blinds are becoming increasingly more popular in homes with small children and/or pets. There are many benefits to this type of blind, including one of the safest blinds for children whilst still offering a modern look. For more information on motorised blinds, read our previous blog.
