A question we are frequently asked at Norwich Sunblinds is “what blinds are in style”?

Of course, style is very individual, with many of us putting our personal stamp on our homes when it comes to design and interiors. Your choice of blinds may well depend on a range of factors including whether your home is contemporary or more traditional and the type of window you are dressing. However, here at Norwich Sunblinds, at certain times we do see some blinds increasing in popularity. What blinds would you choose?

Top 5 blinds in style by Norwich Sunblinds

  • Allusion blinds and Vision blinds are growing increasing popular due to their cutting-edge appeal.
  • Vertical blinds are also fashionable, with the contemporary range of fabric designs available.
  • Wood Venetian Blinds and Roman Blinds are the most sought after at present.

Read on to get the low-down on these stylish blinds…

Allusion blinds

Allusion blinds combine the look of a fine curtain with the versatility of a blind and are ideal for larger windows, bi-folding and patio doors. The panes are made of sheer and opaque textured fabric. The joy of allusion blinds is that you can simply walk through the fabric when your bi-folding or patio doors are open.
Unlike net curtains which can add a layer between your living space and the view outside, allusion blinds let you see outside clearly while filtering the light. You can also adjust privacy levels and control the light easily by rotating the louvres. Not only is the functionality of allusion blinds appealing but the look is really elegant, accounting for their popularity.

Vision blinds

When it comes to vision blinds, there really is a fabric to suit your style, whether you are into contemporary urban living or your home is a cosy rural retreat. You can choose from natural-wood woven effects or contemporary muted tones and everything in between. This could partly account for the increasing popularity of vision blinds.
However, the real draw of vision blinds is the cutting-edge fabric that alternates mesh and solid fabric panels, giving you complete control of light and privacy. You can block out the light completely or fully retract the blind to let in the sunshine. Suitable for the home, conservatories or offices, vision blinds are a stylish alternative to more traditional blinds.
