When there’s no definitive right or wrong answer it can be difficult to make a decision, don’t you agree?
This is a common problem that paralyses home décor enthusiasts, especially when it comes to choosing the right blinds colour. We are told that home décor is best left to the professionals and us laypeople don’t know the science behind choosing the best accessories for our homes.
While this may or may not be the case for you, one thing remains true: we know what we like in our homes. Therefore, surely our own preferences should be the guiding light to help us make the best décor decisions.
We think so. However, we would also like to add that in order to get the look and feel that you want, you need to understand how the colour of your blinds will affect the end result.
What Colour Should my Blinds Be?
Before answering this question, you would need to determine the use of the room and what you want to feel when you enter it.
For instance, if you work from home then it makes sense to have a bright, energetic feeling in your home office. A fresh, clean palette paired with light-coloured vertical blinds that can be adjusted to let in the natural light makes sense in this room.
So, the right blinds colour for a room should work with the other décor elements in the space to create the look and feel you’re going for.
Minimal and Clean
More people than ever love the calm serenity of a minimalist home. With no clutter, clean and open spaces, and gentle tones, it creates a haven away from the madness of modern life.
Is this your idea of perfect? If so, then you’ll benefit from blinds that are the same colour or a similar shade to the window trim or mouldings. This creates a seamless effect with no jarring visual deviations, especially if your window trim is white as is most often the case.
Choose Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are a brilliantly simple and unfussy choice. The result will be a fresh sheet of light-coloured fabric offering you total privacy and gently merging with its immediate surroundings.
Coordinated and Classic
Sticking with a classic, timeless look, some choose to make subtle use of coloured blinds to add interest to a room. A tone that is a little lighter than the wall colour makes a beautiful tone-on-tone statement while keeping it light. Choosing a blind colour that is a few shades darker than the predominant wall colour maintains a cohesive style with a little more warmth and depth.
Choose Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Aluminium Venetian blinds come in a striking range of colours to suit your unique needs. They are cost-effective, easy to maintain, and are a sleek and stylish choice. Being lightweight and thin, they can add a dash of colour without drawing too much focus.
Warm and Natural
Nothing quite matches the warmth and timeless beauty of wood. Wooden floors, panelled walls, and wooden furniture in various shades are here to stay. Wood has been compared to a pair of jeans; it goes with everything!
Do you yearn for that ultra-cool Scandinavian look with cool tones and light wooden accents? Or do you lean more toward the traditional feeling of an old English country home with rich colours and dark wooden furniture and flooring?
Whatever your preference, wooden blinds are one of the easiest choices you’re going to make. Choosing a lighter wood makes sense in a smaller room to give a greater feeling of space, and the darker tones are perfect to create a moody, personal space.
Choose Wooden Blinds
Wooden Venetian blinds come in a huge range of colours, including white if you fancy the cool Mediterranean style. They add immediate interest to a bland room with their clean lines and stunning grain and allow you to play with the light as you see fit.
Bamboo Venetian Blinds
Bamboo is an eco-friendly and durable material with the same gorgeous wooden grain but is both lighter and stronger than traditional wooden blinds. They, too, are available in a range of colours.
Functional and Practical
The range of styles available under the banner of window blinds is enormously exciting. The best solution for you should be practical, something that suits your lifestyle and offers the privacy level that you need.
This choice will also be functional. Choosing the right blinds offers light and temperature control that traditional fabric curtains can’t hope to match.
Once you’ve chosen the type of blinds that check all the boxes, you then want to consider what best complements your home décor.
- Bold blinds will draw focus to the window area, whereas a muted tone allows other décor elements to take centre stage.
- Light-coloured blinds open up a room and give a feeling of clean energy.
- Darker coloured blinds will make a larger room cosier and add depth and interest to a space.
- Natural wooden tones give a subtle earthy feel and complement almost any décor.
- Blinds in the same tone or colour as your room accents will pull the whole style together for a cohesive look.
