Choosing the Right Blinds for the Bedroom

Posted on 12th June 2013 by Gemini Blinds

Ensuring that you select the blinds most suitable to your needs is important in any room of the house – none more so than in the bedroom. Where lounge blinds may have a more stylistic purpose, and those in the bathroom or kitchen must be waterproof to deal with humidity, bedroom blinds must combine aesthetic qualities with light filtering ability.

For those who work night shifts and sleep during the day, there are a wide range of blackout blinds available for bedroom use that will be able to prevent any natural light from entering the room. As light stimulates sensitive cells at the back of the retina that in turn wake up the brain and body, ensuring that your bedroom stays as dark as possible is conducive to uninterrupted sleep, and a blackout blind also gives the added bonus of acoustic insulation, keeping all traffic and other outside noise entering your room to a minimum.

Bedrooms are often an escape from the chaos of the rest of the house, so fitting a Roman or soft fabric roller blind can help to create a calming environment. Roller blinds are ideal for those who prefer clean lines and block colours, offering a durable and long-lasting option, while slatted Venetian blinds can provide a chic, modern feel. Pleated Roman blinds add a luxurious touch, with thicker fabric available for better heat and sound insulation.

Blinds are also a good option for children’s rooms, as they gather far less dirt and dust than curtains, and will need cleaning less often. Many roller and Venetian blinds can be simply wiped clean without the need for removal, and are available in bright, fun colours and patterns that will appeal to kids. An important consideration here is to make sure that a blind used in a small child’s room doesn’t have an accessible and potentially hazardous pull cord.

The design and layout of the window should also be a consideration, and in bedrooms this can often mean awkward shapes and tight corners. Roman blinds can make a feature out of bay windows, while roller blinds have the versatility to squeeze into areas where curtain poles cannot access. Slatted Venetian blinds allow for variable light control if your window is south-facing, controlling the amount of sunlight that enters the room at different points during the day, and the naturally horizontal lines of Venetian blinds can help to make a narrow window appear wider.

Whichever blind style you decide is the right one for your bedroom, Gemini Blinds have a wide and varied range of roller, Roman, Venetian, pleated, blackout and even wooden designs for you to choose from, in a selection of patterns and colours. Our expert team are available for all fitting, with free home visits available for measurements and quotes.
