To begin with, there should be a few questions to ask yourself. What do you want the balance to be between functionality and style? Should you make the blinds formal or casual? How much light do you want to let in? What material is affordable to you? Once you have these basic questions answered, you can be on your way to find your perfect blinds.

We can safely bet that the living room blinds are one of the mostly used blinds in the house due to it being a public area. Your family and friends will be constantly pulling it up and down (as compared to the bathroom for example, where the blinds will most of the time remain shut). Therefore, functionality and quality are important factors. You would be considering a robust material such as styro / plaswood. It is durable and is will not warp like solid wood blinds might. Our styro / plaswood blinds come in a variety of colours and wood imitation patterns to compliment your living room furniture. The small price tag is another added advantage.

However, if your living room style is more modern and chic as opposed to classic and timeless, plaswood / styro might be too heavy for the entire ambiance. In this case we would recommend a set of aluminium blinds. The general appearance will be airier and lighter. It will be a good option for style conscious young home owners that love the contemporary atmosphere.

In most cases, our clients usually prefer a bright living room as compared to the dark and dingy feel. One way to accentuate the sunlight is to have a slightly reflective set of blinds in a light colour. There are two ways to go about colour coding your blinds. Either you match your blinds to the colour of your furniture, or you can pick a neutral colour that compliments anything. For a bright living room, we recommend the neutral colour option in aluminium or alu-wood.

Aside from windows, your living room will most likely also have a sliding door that leads to the garden or balcony. It will also most likely be the biggest glass structure in your whole house. Therefore, it is really important for your sliding door to flow into your home’s entire design scheme. We would recommend a set of vertical blinds in a slightly darker colour compared to your window blinds (or a completely different colour scheme if you are feeling adventurous). This is to create a slight contrast in your décor and possibly making the blinds a design feature that draws your eyes.
