Katherine Brown Curtains and Blinds

Bespoke Blinds London

For Bespoke Blinds London, Katherine Brown Blinds offer a great solution in situations where curtains wouldn’t be practical for example for smaller windows or where space around the window is limited or obstructed. Blinds are usually a more cost-effective option, whilst still providing the opportunity to introduce colour, pattern and texture into a room and providing many useful functions such as blackout, privacy and UV / thermal properties. 

As well as being a primary window treatment, blinds often play a support role alongside curtains where privacy and UV protection may be required during the day when the curtains are open. Enquire today for Bespoke Blinds London-based.

Why choose blinds?

  • Space (and light) efficient, ideal for smaller windows
  • Very flexible in terms of benefits e.g blackout, privacy, and UV protection
  • Can be highly decorative, adding colour, pattern and texture
  • Can be used with curtains to provide daytime privacy and UV protection
  • No additional hardware required
  • Cost-effective

The most popular types of blinds are:  

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are made from a flat piece of fabric, with vertical strings and horizontal rods behind which enable the blind to be raised up in folds like a concertina. They are generally lined and interlined to give a really nice structured look, can be blackout lined if used in a bedroom. But a less structured look is also possible for example where sheer fabrics are used when the requirement is for privacy only. 

There are lots of ways to add interest to roman blinds, for example by adding borders, braids and trims or by shaping the bottom of the blind.

London Blinds

A variation on the roman blind is the London blind which gives a slightly softer look as the blind has more fullness which blouses out as the blind is raised.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are an incredibly flexible option as they can offer so many different benefits depending on the needs to be addressed. They are a cost-effective way of offering either full blackout or privacy and UV properties. They are often used behind curtains and roman blinds to give either additional blackout properties or daytime privacy. In this case, the curtains or roman blind would be the decorative feature and the roller blind would be plain and simple. However, we can add decorative pulls, decorative trims and/or shaped bottoms to add interest. We can also use a chosen patterned or plain fabric that gets laminated and made into a roller blind. So roller blinds can be a really good option either with curtains and roman blinds or on their own. 

Roller blinds can be a great solution for small windows, bathrooms and kitchen windows when just a simple and easy-to-use window dressing is required.
