5 blind styles to consider this year

At UKBlinds Direct, we offer blinds in many different styles, from classic roller and Roman to Perfect Fit and Day and Night. Our blinds are all manufactured to the highest possible standards, ensuring exceptional durability and performance long in the future. Read on to find out the latest blind trends for 2023.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds remain one of the most popular window coverings in 2023. Modern and stylish yet very practical, they are ideal for various rooms of the home. Roller blinds are also fairly hardwearing too, especially those made from PVC and vinyl. They can be installed in moisture-heavy rooms like the kitchen and bathroom without becoming damaged. Available in an almost infinite range of colours and designs, you’ll have no trouble finding blinds to suit your needs, tastes and your existing décor. 

Perfect Fit blinds

Perfect Fit blinds hit the market with a bang in 2005, quickly becoming a popular choice of window covering in homes and offices alike. Specifically designed for UPVC windows, they are different to traditional blinds since they attach to the window itself. They clip directly onto the glass, with no drilling required during the installation process. The versatility of Perfect Fit blinds makes them ideal for various windows, even those that are awkwardly shaped. Perfect Fit blinds are available in a  number of different styles, including roller, Venetian and pleated, to name a few.

Day and night blinds

Day and night blinds look similar to roller blinds, however, instead of having a single panel of fabric, they have two sheer and opaque panels. These adjustable panels glide over each other to provide fantastic light and privacy control.  You can let in just the right amount of light according to your needs. Day and night blinds are very simple to operate, either using a standard sidewinder or with a remote control. Motorised day and night blinds are becoming more popular as people look to modernise their daily tasks by taking advantage of new technology. 

Automated blinds 

Automated blinds (which are also known as smart blinds) are window treatments operated by a motor found inside the roller mechanism. The blinds can be opened and closed using a switch, a remote control or even via an app on your smartphone in many cases. This allows you to operate your blinds from wherever you are, whether you’re sitting in your armchair at home or on the other side of the world whilst away on holiday. Smart blinds can be integrated with Google Home and Nest and Amazon Echo. You can control automated blinds using just your voice when using tools like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. 

Wooden blinds 

Wooden blinds add some serious style to your home or office. Traditional yet timeless, they are ideal for various spaces. Wood blinds are also very durable, ensuring that they will stay looking great and perform well for many years to come. These blinds operate in a similar way to Venetian blinds, with horizontal slats that are linked using a cord pully system. The slats gather together at the top when they’re fully raised. When lowered, they block out sunlight and prying eyes, helping to protect your privacy. At UKBlinds Direct, we are one of the leading suppliers of wooden blinds in Sheffield.
