Popular Types of Indoor Blinds
According to Andrew, the most popular types of indoor blinds currently are:
- Roller Blinds: Versatile, easy to use, and cost-effective, these blinds work well with wide windows and doors and are a popular choice in Adelaide homes.
- Roman Blinds: A more decorative option, Roman blinds have seen a resurgence in popularity for those seeking a stylish window treatment.
- Verishades: A relatively new product, Verishades offer a mix between a curtain and a vertical blind, making them ideal for sliding windows, sliding doors, and large window spans.
Additionally, curtains and shutters are popular window covering options to consider.
Best Blinds for Bedrooms and Blackout Solutions
For the best blackout solution, Andrew recommends Ziptrak Interior Blinds. These blinds lock into side channels, providing a near-blackout effect.
Other options to achieve darkness in bedrooms include:
- Pairing curtains with blinds for added blackout coverage.
- Installing external products like Roller Shutters or Zipscreen Blinds with full blackout fabrics.
Blinds for Privacy and Visibility
To maintain privacy while still being able to see outside, consider:
- Sunscreen roller blinds or sheer curtains for daytime privacy.
- Light-coloured blinds for better daytime privacy compared to dark-coloured blinds.
Remember that visibility is always towards the brighter side, so privacy might not be maintained at night.
Child Safety and Indoor Blinds
Child safety is a significant concern with indoor blinds. Currently in Australia, cords and chains are tied back to the wall to ensure child safety. However, Andrew predicts that motorized blinds will become more prevalent in the future, providing a naturally child-safe option.
