The Benefits of Choosing Blinds For Your Home

As you can probably guess; here at Elegancy Blinds and Curtains, we love blinds! We may be slightly biased, but we’re also experts when it comes to blinds. So, we thought it would be a good idea for us to share some of our knowledge with you.

Here are some of the many reasons that you should look to install blinds throughout your home:


Having curtains in your home can really give it a homely feel. Curtains can be a beautiful and practical way to tie a room together – although they can only open or closed – that’s it! If you would like to be more in control of the light and your privacy, then choose blinds because you’re able to do a lot more.

You can adjust how much of the window is covered by your blinds, as well as the angle of the slats. This way you’re able to control how much light comes into the room, but also, what people can see from outside. The size, colour and fabric will also have an impact so you can choose accordingly. The greatest privacy and light control are achieved with Venetian blinds and Day & Night blinds (which are becoming increasingly popular).

Easy cleaning

Another benefit of blinds is that they tend to be very easy to clean. Taking care of blinds is often as simple as using a damp cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt that has built up over time. Many blinds are made from durable materials such as aluminium and wood, making cleaning quite easy; plus, they are a more hygienic option as compared with curtains. Finally, taking good care of blinds will help them last even longer until you feel it’s time for a change.

Plenty of Choices

There are many types of blinds to choose from. With such a large variety, there is a blind type to suit all requirements and rooms. With such a wide variety of blinds available and many different window sizes, it’s very common to choose bespoke blinds – and they’re probably not as expensive as you may think.

With so many options, your new blinds can become a unique feature, providing the final addition which pulls everything together in the room. Day & Night blinds give a very modern and fresh feel, and others like Roman blinds are more classical and elegant.

Blinds also help to make rooms more spacious because they can be fitted within the window space. Intu and Perfect Fit blinds are specially designed to be installed into the window frame which gives you a very neat appearance. What’s more, we can motorise most of the blinds now for extra comfort and safety. Just imagine opening and closing your blinds from the comfort of your sofa; or by using an app from anywhere in the world to give the impression that someone is still at home.

Thermal Blinds

Curtains are a fantastic way of keeping the cold air away in the winter. However, there are some types of blinds that also have thermal properties such as Cellular blinds or Honeycomb blinds ( and as a name suggests, these blinds have been inspired by nature and bees). The structure of cellular blinds creates the pockets that trap the air inside. It provides excellent insulation by preventing heat loss and keeping the cold air away.
