4 Popular Indoor Window Blinds

1. Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are the most versatile window blind on the market. They consist of a single roll of fabric that raises or lowers with minimal effort.  

Roller blinds’ clean lines and simple design make them an excellent choice for modern spaces and windows of every size. Available in a range of fabrics and manual or motorised operation, they are highly customisable to suit any aesthetic or lighting requirement.  

Blackout roller blinds are great for insulation, reducing heat and blocking nearly 100% of light from entering the room. They’re the ideal window covering for light sensitive areas like bedrooms, nurseries, boardrooms or home theatres.  

Roller blinds made from translucent and sunscreen fabrics on the other hand, help block heat and glare while still allowing for views to the outside. They’re well suited to offices, shopfronts and living areas. 

2. Double Roller Blinds

Double roller blinds allow you to enjoy the luxury of two fabric choices in a single, slimline bracket. Combining a light blocking blackout blind and light filtering sunscreen blind within one system, they’re ideal for large windows and doorways in bedrooms, TV rooms, nurseries and offices. 

Providing a double layer of insulation, double roller blinds are also great for enhancing the energy efficiency of your home or business. They’ll keep the harsh sun out in summer and help retain the warmth during winter.  

Double roller blinds operate either manually via two separate stainless steel chains or automatically with the convenience of a remote control or wall switch.  

3. Venetian Blinds

Another popular window blind on the market is venetian blinds. Consisting of a series of horizontal slats, they easily raise, lower or tilt to meet your lighting and privacy needs throughout the day and night. 

Venetian blinds are available in a range of materials, including aluminium, timber, faux wood, PVC and vinyl. Their versatility makes them suitable for any room, especially high moisture areas like kitchens and bathrooms. 

4. Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are a great alternative to curtains as they still bring softness and elegance to a room without closing it in like curtains may do.  

They’re made up of large horizontal panels of fabric that lower to sit flat against the window or fold up neatly together when the blind is open. Roman blinds are well-suited to windows of any size in bedrooms, living rooms, hallways and studies. 

What About External Blinds?

For those looking to reduce heat and enhance the aesthetic appeal of a building, external blinds are a great alternative (or addition) to indoor window blinds. 

Popular outdoor blind models include:  

External Roller Blinds

  • A variety of fabric colours and opacities 
  • Options for manual, motorised or automated operation  
  • Made to measure designs 

2. Generous Manufacturer Warranty

Window blinds are a long-term investment. To ensure you’re purchasing a quality product, look for a model backed by a generous supplier warranty.
