Blinds are a very contemporary window treatment. They are flexible, versatile and economic, with many of the fabrics having special properties to overcome specific problems such as light and heat reflection.
Most styles of blinds can be used as Bay Window Blinds if they are fitted to the straight sections of the bay. The only style of blind that can be bent to fit around the curve of a bay window is a Vertical Blind.
Blinds, in particular Roman and Roller blinds are often fitted in conjunction with curtains, this means that not only will the window treatment benefit from the inherent properties in the fabric of the blinds such as daylight or sunlight reduction, but also will enable the curtains to be left dressed to the side of the window, without unnecessary handling.
If the blind fabric has a large print, they will need to be on fairly large windows to fully appreciate the detail on the fabric. Blinds are often more practical than curtains for situations such as kitchen and bathroom windows. Blinds also take up less space than curtains, as they can be fitted within the window openings – a better option for a small room.
It is suprising how much light can be lost from a window that has very decorative curtains, especially if they are draped across the window opening. Blinds can be as discrete as required, it all depends on how much of the blind is left open.
