The Room and Its Use

When choosing window coverings for a room, think about how you use the space and what you want blinds or shutters to achieve. For example, you may want a blackout solution for a bedroom, such as blackout roller blinds or solid panel shutters.

However, for living rooms, homeowners in Oxted often require a solution which improves privacy but still lets in lots of natural light. In this case, you may opt for Venetian blinds or café-style window shutters.

The Household

Do you have young children or pets? If so, the pull cords on manual blinds can present a hazard because they can get caught up in them and hurt. Although our blinds include a safety link, for the ultimate peace of mine we recommend shutters or motorised blinds.

Furthermore, if anyone in the household my struggle with opening manual shutters or blinds every day, electric blinds are an effective solution.

The Style of Your Home

Window dressings should match the design of your Oxted home, otherwise they look out of place and can bring down the whole aesthetic. You should consider the style of the building as well as your interior design to find window shutters or blinds which enhance both.

For example, solid panel shutters and Venetian blinds add era-appropriate character to Victorian and Georgian homes as well as other period properties. Shutters and roller blinds in neutral colours provide a clean, blended look for modern and minimalist homes. Manual and motorised blinds in bright colours and prints are ideal for children’s rooms.
