Blinds are increasingly taking the place of curtains. Before, they were only available in limited sizes and materials, but today, a wide range of models is available on the market. In order to help you decide on your blinds, we have put together a few tips for you to make your interior decoration a success.
For a loft atmosphere: Californian blinds in the spotlight!
Also known as “slat blinds” or “vertical blinds”, California blinds are made up of long strips: “slats”. This model was initially popular in professional premises, stores, or business establishments. Over time, it quickly found its way into private homes.
The California awning can perfectly dress if you have a large space with a large bay window. It is also suitable for a large window. Want to add a contemporary touch to your home? Choose a blind that matches the color of your walls or one with a graphic pattern to create a contrasting effect.
For an ethnic interior style: roller blinds
Also known as roller blinds or roller shades, roller blinds are a popular choice for homeowners. This includes ease of installation, simplicity of use, and design. Made of fabric or sheer, this model of blind will offer your room a warm decoration transporting you into a world of escape. To accentuate the effect, opt for roller blinds with colored textures. Choose warm tones such as red, orange, and yellow. As for the fabric, the soft type is preferable to let natural light freely penetrate the interior.
For an art deco interior: focus on pleated blinds
This type of blind has horizontal pleated fabrics like an accordion. It can be unfolded and folded on itself and is adjustable to the desired height. Available in various thicknesses and colors, pleated blinds guarantee your interior’s original and modern look. One of their advantages is their adaptability to all window shapes: large bay windows, roof windows, small openings, etc.
For a Scandinavian style: Venetian blinds are more suitable
Taking its name from the famous city of Venice, the Venetian blind is one of the great classics of interior blinds. It is made up of 25 mm horizontal slats. These allow you to adjust the amount of natural light that enters the room as you wish. Open or closed, the slats protect you from prying eyes. Venetian blinds can be adapted to any interior theme: vintage, tropical, modern, design, classic, or Nordic. Choose the mustard yellow color that will bring a touch of softness to the room. To perfectly imitate the interior design of Scandinavian homes, combine blinds with furniture of the same color, a solid wood table, and minimalist white accessories.
For a classic interior theme: the timeless boat blind
The perfect combination of a blind and a curtain, the boat blind adds elegance to your interior. Depending on the quality (opaque, translucent, thick, thin) and the color of the fabric chosen (plain or patterned), it allows you to partially or completely hide the room. When open or semi-open, it brings a decorative touch to the room thanks to the folds of the fabrics. In closed position, it guarantees you protection against indiscreet glances.
For a decor referring to nature: the inevitable Japanese panel
Whether it is a small opening or a large window, visual comfort is always at the rendezvous. You will immerse yourself in a soothing and relaxing environment by adorning your windows with Japanese panels. Japanese panels can be made to measure and can be adapted to any type of window. Choose natural colors such as sky blue, yellow, beige, or green. As for the interior decoration, opt for natural materials: linen, rattan, wicker, bamboo, etc.
