Choosing the Perfect Blinds for Light Control and Privacy




When it comes to your blinds, the name of the game is versatility.

No matter what room you're in, it's important that your blinds give you the privacy that you need. You should be able to control the amount of natural light filtering in through your windows and strike the perfect balance between privacy and comfort.

Your bathroom is arguably the most important room in the house for privacy. In today's post, we're going to tell you how to choose the best blinds for a bathroom, but we'll venture into other rooms as well. We have many types of blinds available, so keep reading, and we'll help you choose the best ones for your needs.


Roller Blinds

If you want a simple way to diffuse and block the light, creating more privacy in any room, roller blinds are a great option. The mechanism is easy to use - the blinds roll up and down on a rod, and the blinds are made of slats, which are covered by fabric and held in place by an elastic band.

You can choose from a variety of materials with roller blinds. You can opt for blackout material or let some light in with a more standard-coloured or patterned fabric. 

Shutters

Shutters aren't like other types of blinds. They're made of wood slats and feature no fabric whatsoever. They do, however, make it easy to control light and privacy.

Where you'll see most homeowners place shutters is as blinds for bedrooms and living areas because they look just as nice from the outside as they do from the inside - instant curb appeal.


Zebra Blinds

Zebra blinds function like roller blinds, but you get two layered pieces of fabric. One sheer piece of fabric and one solid one, so you get to choose how the light comes through into your room. So, how do zebra blinds work?

If you align all of the solid bands, you'll be able to block the light out completely. Align the sheer ones and you'll have plenty of light filtering in. You can even alternate them to allow bands of light into the room, which can create a lovely ambiance.

Honeycomb Blinds

A lot of people choose the honeycomb style as their home blinds because they give you fantastic light diffusion, but also because of their ability to insulate your windows

These blinds come in a wide range of fabrics, depending on how much light you want to block. An opaque fabric will do a great job of blocking light, giving you all the privacy you need in the bathroom or bedroom. A more translucent fabric will let some light in, which is great for a living room.

All of the blinds we've discussed here come with their own set of benefits. When it comes to the best blinds for a bathroom, you're looking for privacy, so you should choose roller or honeycomb blinds. For living areas and bedrooms, you may consider shutters and blackout blinds, respectively.
