Many people buy roof windows but forget about blinds. Blinds provide an excellent design opportunity in your home, and installing blinds is one of the easiest and most effective ways to add personality to your home. Let's dive into the world of VELUX blinds and see how you can create a design that suits you and your home!

Why should I get blinds?

Blinds are not only practical but also a perfect way to enhance your space. Here are a few reasons why you should invest in blinds:

What can blinds do for your home?

Blinds are, first and foremost, practical. They control how much light flows through your windows and give you much-needed privacy in bathrooms and bedrooms. More than that, blinds are the design final touch you didn't know you needed. They're the icing on the cake that makes your interior look come together.

Key takeaways
  • Blinds are a style statement and help you control how much light flows through your windows, from softening the light to blocking it completely.
  • Choose the right blind foreach space, from blackout blinds to make bedrooms dark for sleep, or translucent roller blinds for diffused lighting offices or playrooms.
  • VELUX blinds are quick and easy to install on VELUX roof windows and come in a vast range of colours and patterns to suit every home.

Style your home with blinds

There are many ways to use blinds as a stylish element in your house. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Match your blinds to your curtains: by matching your blinds to the colour of your curtains, you can create an eye-catching look and make the whole room come together.
  • Add depth with a darker blind: play with depths by selecting a dark blind behind lighter curtains. Visually, this will make the curtains sit forward and add depth to the room.
  • Play with print: be creative and have fun with your interior design by making your printed window blind the room's focal point.

Blinds can be used in many ways. Have fun with them and find a style that matches your personality.

  • Duo blackout roller blind: Get the best of both worlds. A duo blackout roller blind lets you block out all light at night and softly diffuse light during the day.
