Refresh your home this spring / summer with fabrics from Norwich Sunblinds

After months of wintry weather, including a visit from the Beast from the East, we have been enjoying the  brighter and longer days for the past few weeks. This season is the ideal time to freshen up our homes and try something new. The easiest way to make a big difference with relatively little effort is to update your soft furnishings. By introducing blinds or curtains in a new fabric design or a change of colour you can transform a room. Visit Norwich Sunblinds showrooms in Norwich Lanes or Attleborough to inspire your home update this spring, browse our wide range of fabrics at your leisure.

10 steps to spring

  1. 1. New soft furnishings immediately update a room

We all pack away our jumpers and coats as the warmer weather arrives. Why not do the same for our heavy winter curtains? Try adding curtains with spring inspired designs in a lighter fabric to brighten up a room. We have some gorgeous fabrics in the iLiv, Clarke & Clarke and Prestigious Textiles ranges. When you purchase from Norwich Sunblinds you benefit from free measuring and fitting. Your curtains will be homemade by a locally based team of workers. We then add the final touches in our Attleborough factory, steam cleaning the pleats and ensuring that your curtains are of the highest quality and finish. Book your measuring service today.

  1. 2. Be inspired by nature

All around us nature is coming to life. The blossom is on the trees, the flowers are blooming in our gardens and the Norfolk countryside is a gorgeous lush green. Bring the outside in with fabrics inspired by nature. Try adding kitchen blinds or bathroom blinds with a design featuring a garden print to enhance the space.

  1. 3. Go mellow yellow!

The daffodils are out in force in our gardens, with their vibrant shade that signals the start of spring. Be bold. Pick yellow for your bathroom blinds or living room curtains. This shade makes a real style statement when combined with grey. If you don’t want to go for a bright you can choose fabric in a more muted yellow such as pale lemon. At Norwich Sunblinds, we have a vast array of fabrics in a variety of colours. Browse our wide selection at our showrooms in the Norwich Lanes or Attleborough, or book your home consultation online. You might even like to consider our made to measure Plantation Shutters. They give a stylish look to any home and can be custom painted.
