Are you looking to buy new window coverings for your home or office? If so, why not consider blinds? Blinds have become extremely popular over the years, with many people preferring them to curtains. At Humberside Sunblinds, we stock a huge selection of blinds in Grimsby, Cleethorpes, and Lincoln. With styles, designs, and colours to suit all needs and tastes, we’re confident we have the perfect blinds for you. Read on to discover the top 7 reasons to install blinds.
Why choose blinds for your home?
Choose from various styles and designs
When it comes to buying blinds, the choice of styles, designs, and colours is almost endless. Whilst traditional styles such as roller, Venetian and Roman blinds remain popular, there are always new and exciting alternatives coming on to the market to grab people’s attention. Perfect Fit and Duette are just two of the more modern styles that are proving fashionable.
Blinds are available in almost every colour and pattern imaginable too. So, whether you’re seeking a subtle colour like beige or cream or more vibrant, lively shades that don’t fail to draw the eye, you won’t be disappointed. You can easily achieve your vision for your window dressings when you choose blinds.
One of the most underrated benefits of blinds is that they offer fantastic light control. They allow you to filter the light coming in through your windows, enabling you to let us much as it into your living space or office as you choose. So, whether you want to flood a room with natural sunlight, let some light in, or create complete darkness, blinds allow you to do this.
Many blind styles are ideal for achieving light control. Vertical and Venetian blinds with their adjustable louvres are two good options whilst Allusion and Duette blinds are more modern alternatives that are certainly worth considering. Allusion blinds are considered the ultimate shading solution since they strike the perfect balance between privacy and light filtration.
Fantastic insulative qualities
Many people are surprised that one of the top 7 reasons to install blinds is their insulative qualities. Whilst it’s true that curtains are better associated with keeping homes warm, blinds are actually highly effective. Besides, blinds can also be useful for cooling spaces down during the warm months. They can keep homes and offices at a comfortable temperature all year round. Twist vision blinds are a good choice due to their clever construction. Made from two separate layers of fabric that trap and retain heat, they can help to keep a room warm or cool whatever the season.
Simple to care for
Don’t underestimate the importance of ease of maintenance. Blinds can have a lot thrown at them over the years. As well as general dust and dirt, they can attract other food, drink, and a variety of other substances when installed in rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, and children’s bedrooms. Fortunately, blinds are easy to clean, with many styles having hard, wipeable surfaces. PVC is a good choice of material for rooms likely to attract mess. You can simply wipe PVC blinds with a damp cloth to keep them looking their best. In comparison, curtains are arguably trickier to care for, often requiring machine washing or even dry cleaning to keep them in optimal condition.
Ease of operation
Blinds have become so much easier and safer to operate over the years, making them ideal for people with mobility issues and families with children. Not only are they now usually cordless, with a tension mechanism build into the headrail or bottom rail, but there are also automated options available. Automated blinds allow you to raise and lower the blinds without even leaving the sofa. You can operate them from wherever you are via remote control or an app installed on your phone. In many cases, you can control your blinds using Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Most of the blinds in our catalogue can be automated. Simply talk to one of our team and we’ll be happy to discuss your options with you.
One of the top 7 reasons to install blinds is undoubtedly the cost. Naturally, prices vary according to the style and fabric, however, overall, they’re very affordable. At Humberside Sunblinds, we cater to a wide range of budgets. Since you’ll be getting your blinds direct from the manufacturer rather than from another company, you can expect to save a significant amount of money. Whether you’re trying to cut costs when buying your new blinds or money’s no object, we can assist. We can help you to find the perfect blinds at a highly competitive price.
Made to measure for your windows
When you buy blinds from a reputable retailer like Humberside Sunblinds, they can be made to measure. This means that a better fit can be achieved, with the blinds made to fit your windows perfectly. Not only does this improve the look of your new blinds but it can also help to keep the light out and improve privacy since there will be fewer gaps. Whilst off the shelf blinds may be cheaper in some cases, the finish achieved with made to measure blinds will be far superior. At Humberside Sunblinds, we can carry out accurate measurements of your windows before returning to fit your new blinds.
