White Wood ShuttersWindow blinds are not always the first thing to come to mind when brainstorming ideas for interior design. In fact, they are often considered as last minute additions to enhance privacy or block out the sun. Although window blinds do those things, they are also more than just a utility. Window blinds can subtly change the way your house interior looks or the mood of it.

Wood and Faux Wood Blinds

Wooden blinds add a natural and timeless look to your home. Because there are different varieties of wood, there’s a variety of colours for wooden blinds. They can even have a painted finish. A natural light-coloured one can enhance the tropical vibe of your home while pastel-painted blinds make a room lighter and more playful. Extreme temperatures and humidity affect wooden blinds, though, but artificial wooden blinds are available for sturdier ones with a similar look.

Venetian and Shutter Blinds

Blinds limit the outside view, especially if they’re wide or chunky. This is good for blocking an unsightly view, but not if the view is refreshing. You can maximise privacy and comfort with Venetian and shutter blinds. They are usually made of slim horizontal planks that are attached one on top of the other. They can be shut entirely or adjusted to let in however much sunlight or to show as much of the outside as you want without compromising privacy. Venetian and shutter blinds give off an airy yet secluded feel.

Blackout and Roller Blinds

Blackout and roller blinds do more than block out the sun, provide shade or heat insulation, and add privacy to your room. They add to the overall contemporary and modern look of your house interior if that’s what you’re going for. Unlike shutter blinds which have slats, these blinds give full, undivided coverage. Without making it look like an office. Blackout and roller blinds add a subtly sleek privacy and weather screen.
