Which window blind is right for me?

After 10 years in the made to measure window blinds business we are used to people asking for our expert advice on what type of window blind should be used in which window? We always say the same thing, it’s a matter of personal taste and what type of look you are trying to achieve in your home.

Buying roman, roller and vertical window blinds should be an enjoyable experience and at Bob The Blindman we strive everyday to help people make the decision of which blind for which window. You should not be bombarded with a lot of technical stuff nor should you be “told” what blind you should have based on our stock levels (its amazing all the really great offers only apply to the things you don’t want isn’t it!)

You’re spoiled for choice with our range of roller blinds, venetian blinds, vertical blinds, woodweave blinds, roman blinds, pleated blinds and what we tried to do is to list the key benefits for each type of blind its functionality and the options for each blind type.

This will allow you to make a decision based on what you want your window blind to be in your house.

But how do you choose the correct window blind?

Ask these simple questions:

  • Which room is it the blind for? Some blinds are better suited for lounges than bathrooms, such as roman blinds.
  • Is privacy essential? Do you want to look out without the world looking in? Then go for vertical blinds.
  • How do you want to control the light – blackout or just control the glare?. Roller blinds allow you to block out both
  • Is there steam or condensation in the room? If there is maybe a metal blind would be better or a roller blind so you can ventilate the steam away easiliy with out the blind flapping.
  • How big is my window? Obviously not all blinds are suitable for very large windows: so make a note of the minimum and maximum sizes for each blind type.

Whether you are looking for a functional blind, a decorative blind or a blind just for fun our range is available in a wide range of colours, styles and fabrics that really will make the room the view.
