Blind styles to modernise your home

11th January 2022

Are you looking to bring your home into the 21st century? If so, it makes sense to start with your window coverings. You can decorate as much as you like but if your windows look like they belong in the 1970s, you’re going to have a tough task on your hands! Read on to discover the top blind styles to modernise your home.

Add modern style to your home with blinds

When it comes to modernising your home, you don’t always need to make major changes. Often, small adjustments can make the world of difference to your living space, adding some much needed contemporary style. Modern window coverings can have a dramatic impact, turning your home into somewhere stylish and comfortable. Keep reading to learn the best blind styles to modernise your home.

Perfect Fit blinds 

Perfect Fit Blinds in Rotherham

Perfect Fit are one of the newest blinds styles on the market. They were created to fit new window designs, including bifold doors and tilt and turn windows. Whilst these windows let in more light, traditional blinds don’t usually accommodate their increased range of motion. Perfect Fit blinds clip straight onto the window frame, sitting neatly onto the window sill. This allows them to offer shade but without restricting window movement. Perfect Fit blinds are ideal for the new window designs of recent years, making them a popular option for modern homes. In fact, because they can fit up to 95% of uPVC windows, it’s no surprise that they are quickly making their way into properties across the UK.  

Day and Night blinds

One of the top blind styles to modernise your home is undoubtedly Day and Night. These layered shades allow you to let in light or block it out, creating an environment that better suits your needs.  Whilst they operate in a similar way to roller blinds, they differ in that rather than having a single panel of fabric, they have alternating sheer and opaque panels. The slats can be easily adjusted, allowing for effective light filtering. The layers of fabric operate on a single louvre, sliding on top or below one another. 

Some people call Day and Night blinds Vision, Twist, or Duo blinds. They are the same type of blind but are called different things by different companies. UKBlinds Direct supply many Day and Night blinds in Sheffield and Rotherham, catering to all needs, tastes, and budgets.

Automated blinds

Motorised Blinds in Rotherham

Automated blinds are one great way to modernise your home in 2021. They have come on leaps and bounds in recent years, with advancements in technology ensuring that they are easier to operate than ever. Automated blinds are operated by a motor that is positioned within the roller mechanism. These motors can be either wired, battery or solar-powered, and the blinds can be easily adjusted using a switch, remote control, or even an app on your smartphone. When operated through an app or voice command on your smartphone, they are known as ‘Smart blinds’. You can raise or lower automated blinds based on your schedule or even make your home appear occupied to enhance security. Some of the most advanced blinds include a built-in light sensor that lets you control the shades based on exterior lighting.

More and more people are opting for automated blinds. Not only are they a fantastic way of modernising your home, but they also make life a whole lot easier. You can control your blinds whenever and from wherever you are. They’re particularly useful for people with limited mobility or if your windows are hard to reach. Automated blinds can be opened and closed from the comfort of your armchair.
