With so many different styles of blinds and shutters and an array of window and door types, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right window blinds.

Here at Luxaflex® we know that one size never fits all. There is a lot of information to take into consideration when selecting the best blinds for windows.

Privacy, light control, heat retention or reduction, security and adding those finishing touches to carefully planned decor all need to be taken into account.

Once you have your list of must-haves together, it is important to look at the style of window or door and review the different types of blinds to make sure your chosen blind is suitable.

Top for Tilt & Turn

Tilt & Turn windows are in demand as the convenient design lets in the fresh air at the top and fully opens inwards for safety and to make cleaning easier.

A lot of window blind styles get in the way of tilt & turn window operation, but our timeless Plisse® shades beautifully filter light with a crisp pleated style while fitting perfectly into the window.

You can choose from hundreds of gorgeous fabrics and colours including room darkening fabrics and combined with our Top Down - Bottom Up control, you can get flexible light control and privacy.

The only way is bay

Who doesn’t love a beautiful bay window? They give panoramic views and let in lots of lovely light. On the other hand, they can leave you feeling exposed and, during the cold winter months, can sap any heat out of a room.

If your bay window is in your lounge, and it is facing a street, it needs to let in the light with the option of giving you some privacy. We would recommend a sheer blind such as Duette® shades in Batiste fabric, in the lightest weight of its three thicknesses.

When it comes to kitchen bays, it is important to choose a window covering that can withstand both heat and moisture.

Water resistant faux wooden blinds that repel moisture and dirt are a great option and can add a traditional touch to what is truly the heart of any home.

Add beauty to bifolds

Bifold doors and french doors are a fantastic addition to any home and there are lots of options when it comes to adding those finishing touches.

If you want to opt for blinds then Luxaflex® TruFit® blinds can be installed without drilling the frame. The slimline design of Venetian blinds and Duette® shades or Plissé shades look stunning on bifold doors.

Blinding advice

When it comes to choosing blinds or shutters there is a lot of information to take into consideration.
