Choosing the Right Blinds

Choosing the right blinds can be daunting. You’ve got to take into consideration the style, size, colour, texture, scale, pattern and that’s just figuring out how a particular style fits within your room. Not to mention, price, maintenance and safety… But fear not, our guide to choosing the right blinds will help shed some light on the situation.

First things first:

Before you make any big decisions about the style or colours, it’s important to take a few general things into consideration. For instance, different blinds will work to manipulate how much light enters the room and overall privacy.

Every room is different, so also think about the functional aspects of each room. This might mean you use a roller blind in one and timber venetians in another, but it’s essential to remember that window furnishings will work to manipulate the overall architecture and aesthetic of the room.

It’s also important to think about your budget and how much maintenance you’re willing to do. This will save you a lot of hassle in the long run if you decide to change your mind.

After you’ve done the above, play around with different textures, scales, colours and patterns. Have a bit of fun with it too! Although it might seem like a monotonous task, you can really change a room’s character by adding some great new blinds!

Your style guide:

Roller Blinds:

Roller blinds are a failsafe. They work in every room, in every style and colour and always serve their purpose. You’ve also got an array of choices when it comes to fabrics.

Ultimately, roller blinds are a versatile and economical option and should always be considered when you’re looking at upgrading or installing window furnishings.

 

Roman Blinds:

Roman blinds work really well, particularly when space isn’t on your side.

Unlike curtains, Roman blinds roll upwards – leaving a nice tailored look when rolled up and a clean and contemporary look when down.

Timber Venetian Blinds:

Timber Venetian blinds are the Australian favourite. Popular due to the relaxed and resort-style look it gives a room. They provide shade and privacy, while also allowing for an unobstructed view of the window. You also have the ability to control the angles of the blades, which helps to control the amount of light coming in and out of the room.

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
