Bedroom BlindsPersonal preference

You can receive advice from your family and friends as to what type of blinds you should buy but always refer to your taste. If you don’t like its colour and design, why purchase it? You might end up, hating it and having replacing down the track because you don’t like staring at it every day.

View outside

Your blind look awesome inside but does it give you a proper view outside when you want to? Your blinds should not interfere with the outside view – it should allow you to control what you want and don’t want to see. Or give you’re the privacy blocking out the street view so you can really enjoy your room.


Do you have children? Most blinds come with a cord and sometimes, they pose a threat to your children especially when they are not securely placed at a safe distance. Be sure to keep your blind cords secured properly and tucked away somewhere safe. Cordless blinds are a great option too.

Room use

Where do you plan to use your blinds? Some blind types are designed to specifically fit to a certain window. For example, a vertical blind often suits a large patio window. When choosing, consider the room where you are planning to put your blinds – it makes the choosing so much easier.
