Come rain or shine – The right blinds whatever the weather


Blinds Whatever The Weather

If there’s one thing that we can depend on it’s the unpredictability of our British weather. Umbrellas to the ready!  This month we’ve seen hailstones and heavy rain while in March we enjoyed warm, sunny days. Whatever the weather, we have the right blinds for your home.

At Norwich Sunblinds we measure up and fit your blinds for free. Professionally fitted made to measure to help keep the cold out and protect you from the heat of the midday sun, meaning your blinds work hard for you all year round.
However, you can get increased benefits from certain types of blinds and fabrics during the summer and winter months.

Roller blinds are easy to operate and stylish

If there was an equivalent of the Oscars for blinds, the roller would probably win the award for the most popular type. Easy to operate and stylish to boot, roller blinds suit almost any room and are available in a wide variety of fabrics and finishes. 

These blinds work all year round, but you can opt for special fabrics giving additional benefits in some seasons. Fabrics can be treated to be heat reflective, have solar protection and even hay fever alleviation properties – making them perfect for summer.   

Rollers work well as blackout blinds and are just the thing for children’s bedrooms, helping the little ones to get a good night’s sleep during the lighter evenings while their parents can enjoy valuable downtime. The light reduction properties in blackout blinds also benefit shift workers helping them to catch up on sleep during daylight hours. 

Your blinds will be tailored to your exact requirements so you can choose the finish to suit your home.

Vertical Blinds can fit any size or shape of window

Vertical blinds are the perfect solution for more unusual windows as they can be made to fit any size or shape including bow, bay and arched. They also work on bi-fold doors, so are a great option for blinds for the living room on warmer days. 

You have ultimate control with vertical blinds. Simply draw the blinds and angle the louvres to allow as much or as little light in as you like. Let more daylight in on winter days or keep the bright sunshine out in the heat of summer, helping you to stay cool and protect your furniture from fading.

You can get creative with vertical blinds by mixing and matching colours and patterns. Not sure what will work in your home? During a home appointment one of our team can show you a selection of fabrics and help you create blinds that suit your style.

Pleated Blinds are ideal for awkward shaped windows

Do you have an awkward shaped space with a window? If so, you don’t need to compromise on style or suffer draughts and chills in the cooler months. Pleated blinds work for unusual spaces such as skylights and conservatories helping to insulate the room. They are a great choice for the bedroom, helping to keep you snug.

Your blinds will be made in Norfolk by craftspeople to your exact specifications. You can choose from a range of heat-efficient and light-reducing fabrics. 

With over 40 years’ experience in making, measuring and fitting blinds of all kinds, there isn’t much we don’t know. We’ll use our knowledge to create the best solution for your home. We offer a five-year guarantee, giving you peace of mind.

Make a style statement

If you like the idea fabrics make a luxurious statement, then Roman blinds could be just the thing for your home. Made from furnishing and curtain fabrics, Romans are arguably the most elegant blind type.

As a family run company, we work with some of today’s leading suppliers and can bring you fabrics from companies such as Clarke & Clarke, iLiv, Prestigious and Voyage. You can see samples in our Attleborough showroom or during a home appointment.

A stylish choice for the living room, Roman blinds can be paired with curtains which you can draw in winter to keep you warm and cosy. At Norwich Sunblinds we make soft furnishings too, so can create matching cushions to complete the look.
