7 ways to do white blinds and curtains by Norwich Sunblinds

From the fashion runways to the pages of interior design magazines, white fabrics are very on-trend at the moment. However, white and neutral tones are classic shades that do not date and work whatever the time of year. By choosing white blinds and curtains for your home you can create a look that will stay fresh for years to come. All blinds and curtains made by Norwich Sunblinds come with a 5-year guarantee, so you can rest assured when you purchase from us that you will get good quality products.

Neons and brights are not for everyone. Whilst you might choose more vibrant colours to accessorise your home, you may prefer to dial down the colour when it comes to your blinds and curtains. Here at Norwich Sunblinds, we offer a huge variety of fabrics in white and neutral tones, meaning you can create a look to suit your interior décor.

1. Go traditional white

Sometimes the simple things in life just work. White blinds make a style statement and will most likely suit your home whatever your style or taste. White blinds make the perfect backdrop, by adding a red vase or a purple throw, you will create interest in a room. You can let your accessories do the talking. White fabrics are ideal for living room or bedroom blinds, creating a sense of relaxation.

5. Add a splash of interest

So, you fancy white blinds. Have you thought about adding a pattern in a bold colour? By doing so you can have fun with design. A purple geometric print on a white background can be complemented by a purple armchair. A red and white stripe roller blind can tone with red cushions. A new blind is a really economical way to update your interior décor, so much cheaper than completely redecorating. Choose a colour combination that works with your existing furniture and add in a couple of new accessories to match such as a vase or a candle holder. Need some help creating a look for your home?
