Blinds are a popular, versatile and stylish option for any property, residential or commercial. These have a range of practical advantages and benefits but they can also be used to add a touch of personality and character to any room. 

What are the important considerations when choosing blinds to create an aesthetic feature?

When choosing blinds to create an aesthetic feature, in any room or space, there are a number of important factors to consider. These include: 

  • The type of blind
  • The blind material
  • The colour and design of the blind

Choosing the type of blind for an aesthetic feature 

There are a range of blind types to choose from that can have a range of practical and visual effects. Some of the most effective options include:

  • Vertical blinds- for large windows or sliding doors vertical blinds can be a highly effective option for drawing attention to the glass, and the exterior view. This allows the view itself to become the visual feature in the room and is sure to draw all of the attention.
  • Roller blinds- there are a wide range of roller blinds to choose from, including those that are backed to block out all of the light from the window. As well as the different material and construction options, roller blinds are also available in a range of colours, styles and designs. As a result, you can choose from abstract and geometric patterned tiles to more traditional floral prints depending on your preferences. You can also choose from neutral colours to bright and bold colours when opting for a roller blind, which can also help to create a visual feature.
  • Roman blinds- roman blinds have a sophisticated and elegant look which can help to direct attention and create an aesthetic feature. Roman blinds are also a great way to add softness and warmth to a room and can be used to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere.

Choosing the right material for blinds

Blinds are available in a wide range of materials and options which can all add to the visual effect and result. Wood, metal, plastic and fabric are the most common blind materials and these can all be highly effective options. Each of these materials brings unique characteristics that can be used to create different effects in any room, and to draw attention with a visual feature. 

Wooden blinds, or wooden effect blinds, are a warm and inviting option that can be used to create a rustic, natural look, adding visual texture to a room. 

Metal blinds are perfect for a contemporary or industrial space as these provide a sleek modern result that pairs well with the principles of industrial design. 

Fabric blinds on the other hand are a great option for adding warmth and texture to a room and can be used to create a more traditional or contemporary look, depending on pattern, colour and design choices.

Choosing the colour and design of the blind to create a visual feature 

Another important factor to consider when using blinds to create an aesthetic feature is the colour and pattern of the blind itself. Colour can play such an important role in interior design, and by using a contrasting colour you can be sure to direct attention to your blinds. However, it’s also important to make sure that the hue and tone are a good fit for your interior design, and as such, a complementary colour can often be better than a contrasting colour.

Patterns and designs can also play an important role with floral patterns, geometric patterns or even polka dots helping to set the tone for your space and draw attention and interest.
