Blinds are a practical and stylish way to update a space, giving it a fresh and modern look. There's a wide range of materials and designs to choose from, making blinds much more versatile than curtains. They give you greater control over how much light is entering a room and if you're technologically minded you'll love that you can now purchase smart blinds that can be linked to connected homes and controlled via a smartphone app.

Whether you have a preference for panel, Roman, Venetian, pleated, Swedish or vertical blinds, you'll find a variety of options made from metal, wood, plastic and fabric.

Choose blinds from leading brands and retailers including Ashley Wilde, Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston and many more. Whatever windows you're trying to cover, you'll find more than enough options, even for those hard to reach spaces such as doors and skylights

While blinds can be a cost-effective alternative to curtains, no one said that they have to be boring. Whether you're going for a metal or fabric finish, blinds are a great way to inject some much-needed colour and vibrancy into a room.

Venetian blinds are one of the most popular styles of blind on the market because they offer maximum light and privacy control. This classic style can suit any décor and is very easy to install and maintain.

Roller blinds are simple but can make a big difference to a room, especially if you're considering something bold and patterned. While roller blinds can be used in any space, they're ideal for bathrooms and kitchens as their protective coating enables them to withstand condensation

Blinds with a blackout fabric lining are a popular choice and should be considered for bedrooms, especially where young children may be sleeping. Whether it's first thing or in the middle of the day, a heavy duty blackout blind should completely shield your room from sunshine.
