Choosing window blinds is exciting, but it does have the potential to be an overwhelming task. Afterall, blinds affect the look and feel of your home, as well as your comfort and energy efficiency. When all of this is combined with the sheer amount of blinds available – such as smart roller blinds or roman blinds – it’s not hard to see why this is such a tough choice for many households. 

Before you make a decision, you should be aware of the main considerations when choosing the best type of blind for your home so you can buy with confidence.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Smart Roller Blinds for Your Home

Firstly, there are a number of key considerations to make when choosing blinds for your home. Use the following information to help guide you: 

The Style of Your Home

What kind of look are you going for? Do you want traditional blinds, modern blinds, or something in between? The style of your home should be the starting point when choosing blinds. You should always choose a window covering that fits with your interior to create a unified, cohesive look. Smart blinds for example are a fantastic option for contemporary styles. They offer a sleek, minimal look without the need for dated cords.

You should also consider the colours used in your home and how your blinds can compliment. Our smart blinds are available in a range of neutral colour options, from clean, crisp white to something darker such as black or anthracite. 

The Size of Your Windows

Not all blinds are created equal – so make sure you choose a style that will fit your windows properly. If the blinds are too small, they’ll look out of place. If they’re too big, they’ll block too much light. Smart roller blinds offer a great solution as they can be fully customised to fit almost any size of window. With a minimum and maximum width of 610mm and 2000mm respectively, you can be sure that our roller blinds will be perfect for your home. 

Level of Light Control

The level of light control you need is another important factor to consider when choosing blinds – afterall, this is the primary purpose of blinds in the first place. Determining your light control depends on the time of day you need the blinds for and the activities you do in the room.

Blackout blinds work best for a dark bedroom, whilst something more light-filtering might be required for a living room. However, you might also want blackout blinds for a room that receives a lot of sunlight, such as a south facing office for example. 

The Level of Privacy You Need

Blinds are great for improving the privacy of your home and it’s another key reason for investing in them. Windows that look out onto a street or properties that are overlooked by neighbours might require some extra privacy. 

Again, smart roller blinds offer a fantastic solution. Not only do they block out pricing eyes, but through automation you are able to pre-set a time for your blinds to close. You may want your blinds to close when it gets dark for example, or whilst you get changed in your bedroom in the morning. 

The Ease Of Cleaning

No one wants to spend their time cleaning their blinds and it’s something that should be as quick and pain-free as possible. Luckily, roller blinds are amongst the simplest window coverings to clean and maintain. They can be taken down and cleaned in no time at all, and do not feature lots of individual components such as venetian blinds. 

Children and Pets

If you have young children or pets it’s important to make sure you choose blinds that are safe. Pets or children can easily get caught up in cords. Electric smart blinds are completely cordless so you won’t have any safety concerns to worry about.

Smart Roller Blinds

Smart roller blinds are a great option for any home and there are a range of benefits. Unlike other blinds, smart blinds can be controlled with a remote control, a smartphone app or even using voice commands. This means you can open and close your blinds from anywhere in the house, even if you’re not home. 

Smart roller blinds are a versatile option that can be used in any room of the house. They offer a sleek, affordable window covering solution for your home, whilst remaining simple to operate – perfect for children and the elderly. They can be raised and lowered with a simple cord or chain, or they can be motorised for even greater convenience. 

Another great benefit of smart roller blinds is their versatility and customizability. Most blinds come in a variety of colours and fabric types so you will always be able to find something that’s right for you. Roller blinds are suitable for any room of the house – from bedrooms to living rooms to kitchens – and can be fitted to windows of all sizes.

Our smart roller blinds come in two main types: blackout roller blinds and dimout roller blinds. Blackout roller blinds are perfect for bedrooms as they block out all light. Dimout roller blinds on the other hand are a good option for living rooms and dining rooms, as they let in some natural light while still providing privacy.
