There is a wide choice of options available when it comes to choosing the right sort of door window blinds for your property, but there are certain important considerations to take into account before deciding which to buy.
Think about the size and shape of your windows, how much control you want over light and privacy and above all, invest sensibly and buy blinds that will last, withstanding daily wear and tear with little or no maintenance.
If you have small children, then it is also necessary to ensure that your blinds come with a child safety cord consolidator which will greatly reduce the risk of accidents.
Types of Window Blinds Available to UK Homeowners
The range is extensive and you must decide which is right for your home. Do not buy the cheapest as they are cheap for a reason and will not last. Many people will look at roller blinds, panel blinds and Venetian blinds, all of which are great, although roller blinds can be difficult to use and are not particularly attractive when rolled up.
Door window blinds are now available in quality woods and fabrics, making more sense for many reason such as:
- They are made to measure; no two windows are the same and a poor fit will look awful.
- You will be given a choice of slat sizes and fabric widths, allowing you to better control the amount of light and privacy that is required.
- S:CRAFT for example allow you to customise the colour of your blinds from popular brand colour swatches
- You will be able to choose from a wide range of plain and decorative tapes.
- The head rail will be made of steel, so very strong and also available in various colours.
Select blinds that are made from plantation wood as they will be lightweight, of a superior quality and will have a gorgeous grain which you only see with quality timber. Ensure that fabrics are strong and not transparent.
