This month we thought we’d focus again on answering a question from our amazing customers: Which blinds let in the most light? With the longer summer days, it is especially relevant, we all want to make the most of the light. However, the question is equally relevant during the cooler months when the shorter days mean light is in short supply. We then need to maximise any natural light in our homes.
Your question answered: blinds that let in the most light
Pleated, roller and vertical blinds can be supplied in a very open voile type fabric, which keeps the room light. In general, the more sheer the fabric, the more you can maximise any opportunities to let natural light into a room.
Venetian blinds in light colours also keep the window nice and open allowing light to filter though.
Our best pick of blinds that let in the most light
The great thing about blinds is that with most styles you can easily control the light levels. Here is our pick of the best blinds for letting in the light.
- Roller blinds
Roller blinds can brighten a room and work well in the kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom. This blind type suits any space and is really simple to operate, making roller blinds a popular choice.
The more sheer the fabric, the more natural light will filter through. At Norwich Sunblinds, we offer a vast range of fabrics and designs, so you will have plenty to choose from. Visit our showrooms in Norwich Lanes and Attleborough to discover our range for yourself.

- Vertical blinds
Vertical blinds offer great control for light and privacy. By drawing back the blinds you can let in maximum light, bringing the outdoors in. However, you can easily balance the need for light and privacy by angling the louvres. As well as being ideal for windows, vertical blinds also work well for bi-fold doors. What’s more these blinds are machine washable meaning they are super easy to look after.
The sky is the limit when it comes to picking the design for your vertical blinds. You can opt for stylish neutrals or let your creative side show with mix and match patterns and colours. The team at Norwich Sunblinds can help you find your perfect combination.

- Venetian blinds
Go for venetian blinds in light colours to create a light space. Aluminium venetian blinds stop direct sunlight getting through while allowing reflected light into the room. Available in a vast rang of colours and finishes, aluminium blinds are light and durable. Suitable for all room conditions, aluminium venetian blinds make perfect kitchen blinds or are ideal as blinds for the bathroom.
We also make wood venetian blinds from high-quality Bass wood. At Norwich Sunblinds, all venetian blinds are made to measure in-house by expert craftspeople. It all starts with a home appointment when we measure up and advise you on the best blinds for your home. We can colour match the valance, bottom and cords to ensure everything coordinates perfectly.

- Pleated blinds
Pleated blinds in light fabrics are ideal if you want to create a feeling of light in your home while also being able to limit its impact on a bright sunny day. As well as working on standard windows, pleated blinds are simply perfect for awkward spaces such as skylight windows and conservatory roofs.
Should you want to limit the amount of light in a room, we offer heat and light reducing fabric. You can find out more about our range of fabrics for pleated blinds when you visit our showrooms in Norwich Lanes and Attleborough.
Made to measure is best
When it comes to controlling light in a room or should you have any other specifications, it is best to go for made to measure blinds. Off the shelf blinds tend to be one-size-fits-all but as the windows in our home and our requirements mostly differ the result could fall short of your expectations.
At Norwich Sunblinds, all our blinds are made to measure in-house by expert craftspeople, they are bespoke to you. You can also choose from a wide range of finishes and colours ensuring they meet your needs and match your décor. We measure up, make and fit your blinds; the first step is a home appointment with a member of our team who can advise on the best blinds for you.
Whatever your concern, whether you want to make the most of the light or need help to insulate your home, contact our friendly team, we’re here to help.
