Roman blinds

Roman blinds are the most common type of blinds. These are made from a flat fabric connected to the headrail using metal or plastic clips and then pulled down into position. Blinds can be opened by sliding them up between two slats at the top of the window for more light or pulling them entirely out of their slot.

The best thing about Roman blinds is that they are super stylish, available in a range of different colours, and they tend to stay open when you want your windows open for more light.

If you want something that looks more traditional, then Roman blinds should fit into your décor nicely. Roman blinds feature an overlapping pattern usually created through pleats at the top and bottom (although this might not always be present).

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are very common in many homes and offices because they are simple and effective. They tend to be made from a thin fabric, and the mechanism consists of two or three drums controlled by hand-cranks that roll up the blinds vertically inside their tubes, so no cord pulling is necessary. Blinds can be opened using these cranks, just like you would open regular window shades in your home. Roller blinds come with flat or round bars depending on what style goes best with your decorating scheme.

Venetian blinds

These blinds consist of multiple horizontal layers that create small cells through which air flows freely when they are open, allowing natural ventilation inside your home and providing complete privacy when shut. They are commonly used in bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas where you need privacy and want to see out.

Vertical blinds

Another popular type is the vertical blind. Vertical blinds come in three main styles; aluminium with straight slats (more like mini-blinds), fabric wrapped around an aluminium tube called “stacker” style vertically stacked vinyl. These are generally good quality but less common on the window market today; a new double stack system with no visible track, just cordless control at both ends. It looks great! The versatility of this type enables them to be fitted onto almost any kind of window or door opening size also helps make it very practical.

Plantation shutters

Plantation shutters, on the other hand, are a wood product. They are made from solid basswood or MDF (medium-density fiberboard) and come in a vast range of styles, colours and finishes to suit any home décor.

They can be fitted with either an operable tilt rod to allow adjustment of the louvres, or they can be fixed for a more traditional look.

Shutters are also available as a “room divider” style where the panels fold back completely against the wall when not in use – this is perfect if you want to create that open-plan living look in your home but don’t want to; lose all your privacy!

Panel blinds

Panel blinds are used to control the light and privacy in a room without completely obscuring the view. They are available in either fabric or vinyl and can be made to measure to fit any window size. Panel blinds are similar to Roman blinds in that they consist of one large piece of fabric, but they hang vertically instead of folding at the waist as Roman blinds do.

They are perfect for use in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas where you need easy access to the window but don’t want it constantly exposed. Panel blinds can also be used as sliding door coverings – ask your Blinds Newcastle professional for more information.
