Autumn Brights: Colourful blinds for your home


Colourful blinds for your home

It’s that time of year again, the clocks have recently gone back; hope you remembered to change them and enjoyed the extra hour under the duvet. With the darker and shorter days approaching, it has got noticeably chilly and we’re reaching for those jumpers and coats. It’s not all doom and gloom though; the changing season brings an explosion of colour as the leaves turn. Time to introduce Autumn brights into your home? Colourful blinds for your home can cheer up your décor and add a warm glow.

Our blinds and shutters are made in Norfolk

Our blinds and shutters are made in Norfolk by fully trained craftspeople,  and Autumn is one of the best times of year to explore this glorious county. Feel the leaves crunch underfoot in woodland or take in a stunning sunset on the North Norfolk coast. Watch the spectacle of birds migrating at a nature reserve or see deer in a country park. Whether you enjoy a countryside stroll or a coastal walk, you’ll experience awe-inspiring natural scenery and a huge variety of wildlife.

We have even created our own blinds – designed by the wonderful Norfolk artist, Mandy Clarke. You need to hurry, though, as these are limited editions:

How to colour your blinds

1 – Bring on the brights

Wherever you live – by the coast, in the countryside or a city – the colour of the landscape really changes at this time of year. The leaves turn various shades of red, yellow, purple, orange, pink and auburn, while the Autumn sun burns bright ochre. Conkers mingle on the ground in varying tones of chestnut and russet. These colours can really enhance each room in your home, try bathroom blinds in deep purple or get cosy in your sitting room with neutral blinds in chocolate brown. If you live in or near Norfolk the team at Norwich Sunblinds can visit you to do all the measuring up and fitting for your blinds. Book your free consultation today.

2 – Red alert: On trend blinds

Give your interior décor a new season update with the hottest colour as seen in the Autumn/Winter 2017 fashion shows. The catwalk was dominated by shades of wine, scarlet, ruby and fiery red. Add a blind in blazing red or a more subdued russet, reds work well with a neutral colour scheme, tone in with accessories and soft furnishings for a coordinated look. Norwich Sunblinds offer a wide selection of colours and finishes. With over 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of blinds, all our products are made to measure.

3 – Blinds for the home that show your wild side

Autumn brings with it a hive of activity in the natural world.  At the onset, the deer with their impressive antlers can be spotted in country parks. The annual bird migration is now underway, with flocks dominating the skyline, and swans and ducks arriving in time for Winter. The season also sees the beginning of seal pupping on the Norfolk coast. You can bring the outdoors in, choose from fabrics inspired by wildlife. We work with a wide range of suppliers, so offer a huge variety of designs for blinds for the home. All products come with a 5-year guarantee, giving you peace of mind.

5: Colourful blinds with light control

It is important to make the most of natural light as the days get shorter. Vertical blinds are ideal as they offer control for light and also privacy. You can draw the blinds back to the side to let in maximum light or angle them to let in as much or as little as you need.
