Aluminium venetian blinds are relatively inexpensive, but they are strong and flexible, providing an ideal cover for all kinds of windows. They are available in a range of colours so that they fit most decors. Excellent for light control and to ensure privacy, aluminium venetian blinds are strong and will last for many years. They can be tilted to allow in light or to darken a room and can be pulled up so they are hidden and the window pane completely exposed. Because of their affordability and ability to resist moisture, these blinds are often used to cover windows in kitchens and bathrooms in residential homes. But there is no reason that they have to be used only in those rooms; they can also serve as window coverings in other rooms of a house. They are also often to be found in business offices.

Wooden venetian blinds are becoming increasingly common as a way of covering the windows of lounges, bedrooms and dining rooms instead of curtains. Durable and long lasting, yet highly attractive, they come in a variety of rich hues in addition to white. Wooden venetian blinds are increasingly being used not only as a feature of the window itself, but also as a complement to the furnishings in a stylish home. They are easily adjusted to admit a desirable amount of light and can be closed to keep a room cooler on a hot day. Made using a lightweight wood, they are nevertheless strong and durable. Easy to clean and maintain with a duster or a damp cloth, they require little in the way of maintenance. They are a popular choice for large windows, but are suitable for most of the windows in any home.

These blinds are ideal for use on large windows as well as for sliding doors. The blinds can easily be pulled aside on sliding doors, for example, to allow access through the door. Vertical blinds can be tilted to let in just the right degree of light or fully closed to block out light in the same way that horizontal blinds can be adjusted. Of course, the difference is that the slats run down instead of across a window. Another benefit of vertical blinds is that they can easily be replaced should they become broken or fail to work properly; simply replace the broken slat with a new one. Strong, long-lasting and easy to clean, they also are available in a variety of colours that can match furniture and other fixtures in a room.

Roman blinds offer an attractive and useful alternative to regular window blinds. Available in a range of fabrics, they are controlled by rolling up parts of the blind into a stack, exposing the window pane, when natural light is required. A blind can be allowed to fall back and cover a part of the window or the entire pane when needed. Roman blinds can be used to filter light or to block sunlight from coming through a window. The wide variety of styles, patterns and designs make Roman Blinds ideal for adding to the atmosphere of a stylish home. The blinds are popular for bedrooms as they can provide complete privacy and block out light.
They can easily and quickly be cleaned by removing the blind from the headrail.
For a natural and environmentally friendly look, Bamboo Roller Blinds fit the bill. They can be rolled down to filter out the glare on bright sunny days while still enabling those inside to enjoy the view. Bamboo blinds can also be rolled up toward the top of a window to combine a degree of filtered light at the top with full light coming through the bottom part of the window. When they are not needed, bamboo blinds can be rolled up completely. Bamboo provides a warm, homelike and intimate look for a room. It is a natural wood product that ideally complements a room with furniture that has a similar natural look. Combining functionality with attractiveness, it also goes well with most types of furniture and fittings.

Shutters protect privacy while at the same time allowing a degree of light to enter the space around it, making them a good choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Shutters also are ideal when a covering is required for large windows that are close to the floor, or sliding and French doors.
Available in a range of finishes, they enhance any room with a timeless classic look. Few other fittings can match the feeling of durability and stability that shutters provide. They can be easily adjusted or opened and closed, making them ideal for any home that has young children and pets. Shutters come in a variety of styles that can be customised to fit most windows shapes.
