Functional blinds are currently popular, especially as more people are working from home.
Blinds are window coverings that often have slats — these slats can be adjusted to an angle that suits you, depending on how much natural light and privacy you need in your particular space. Blinds are available in a number of materials, and can be used in any room of the house. This year, as more and more people are working at home, blinds are being used widely in home offices. Read on to find out what styles are most popular at the moment, and how we can help if you would like to set up blinds of your own…
Blinds are ideal for home offices
Blinds are a very popular choice when it comes to home offices this year, and function is key here. They help to address issues like screen glare by filtering out light or dimming the room, while blackout blinds are proving popular for individuals who have regular online meetings.
Blinds are also useful when it comes to regulating extreme temperatures — certain blinds can insulate particularly hot or cold rooms. They are also ideal for those who need to reduce outside noise during work hours, as well as those who value privacy whilst they work.
Roller blinds are a popular choice
Roller blinds are proving a popular choice this year, thanks in part to their versatility. Roller blinds can be customised to suit almost any space, and come in a range of styles. They can be custom-made in blackout fabrics for those who need to minimise outside light and noise.
When it comes to design and hues for roller blinds this year, dramatic florals, graphic patterns and bold colour palettes all scored highly on the trend-front.
Vertical blinds have made a come-back
Vertical blinds have traditionally been a popular option in offices, but they have recently gained traction in a wider variety of spaces. Vertical blinds are actually a very versatile style, and are both practical and durable. For these reasons, more and more people are opting for them in their homes — they are particularly well-suited to large and wide windows. They filter light well without blocking it out completely, and can be custom-made in a range of fabrics, colours and sizes.
Black-out blinds remain popular
Black-out blinds remain a popular choice, both in bedrooms and home offices. They are a great option for those who would like to block out external light completely to enable better sleep or to enhance privacy. Neutral shades, such as white, cream and greys, are popular choices, but darker, richer colours are also proving popular this year for a more luxe look.
Roman blinds add some style
For those who are looking to add some luxury to their home, Roman blinds are the way to go. They are right on trend this year — some of the most popular designs include organic lines and dainty florals, as well as block prints and nature-inspired patterns. When it comes to popular shades, deep earth tones are proving very current, while some of the most popular fabrics include soft plush and velvets.
