Once you’ve selected blinds from our stylish collection you can enjoy total control over the amount of light that enters your room. Our huge range of specialised blinds can give you the option of stylish light control.

As part of our stunning collections are motorised electric blinds, these give the added benefit of you not having to lift a finger to set the perfect mood for your room. Looking for a total blackout to enjoy a film with the family or want to watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed? Simply use the handy remote to close or open the blinds.
As well as being a stylish addition to your home, once you install blinds you can enjoy complete privacy from the outside world while also not inhibiting the amount of light entering the room.

Stunning range of bespoke living room blinds
When it comes to designing and embellishing your living room, there are infinite design possibilities – the same goes with your blinds. We believe your living room is one of the most important spaces of your home – and it is certainly the most essential space when it comes to aesthetics and design.
In this living area, you want to be able to sit back, unwind and relax whenever you want – comforting lighting and colours help this. This room also needs to be a social hub – a space where you and the rest of your family can socialise with each other or with friends and guests.
There’s no doubt that design very much matters when it comes to making your living room a welcoming space for visitors, so much so that even the smallest touches can make a prodigious difference to the overall look and feel of the room. With this in mind, blinds are certainly that extra touch that will completely define the atmosphere of your living room.
Having sufficient lighting that can be easily controlled and adapted for different moods and occasions is vital. Similarly, it can make the space more welcoming for guests who may desire a well-lit room when they come to see you. With the right set of blinds, natural lighting can be fully controlled, and you can have the ability to make your room either completely dark, entirely lit, or several points in between, so rest assured, we can provide the most comforting and stylish blinds to give your living room exactly what it needs.
We provide a large selection of bespoke window blinds in a wealth of styles and designs to suit your living room and add the most perfect finishing touch. Within our vast offering of showstopping window blinds, we offer pleated blinds, vertical blinds, day & night blinds and motorised blinds – to name a few.
We have some great suggestions for the best blind styles for your living room. However, keep in mind that the majority of our selection can be customised for living rooms and other areas.
Types of Blinds We Specialise in at Solaire
Perfect for regulating the amount of natural light that enters your space by simply changing and adjusting the vertical slats that come with them, vertical blinds are an extremely popular option for living room blinds.
Sometimes you want your living room to be well illuminated with natural light, perhaps during the day when wanting to focus, but then you might also want to switch off and relax sometimes, thus wanting to block out all-natural lighting. This is exactly why vertical blinds are a great solution for living rooms since they allow you to control light flow to the greatest extent.
Panel blinds bring some significant flair and elegance to your space, and are very ideal for modern and contemporary living rooms. These blinds, which fall midway between blinds and curtains are a top pick for people who favour a minimalist style.
At Solaire Blinds, we provide you with a boatload of options when it comes to picking a gorgeous fabric and colour scheme to go with your living room decor. Our panel blinds come in a variety of fabrics, from sheer material to huge, bold patterned designs for a burst of colour and style.
Another favourable style of blinds for living rooms is the extremely popular Roman blinds style. These exquisite blinds will definitely give your place a sense of class and refinement.
The most appealing qualities of standard blinds are combined with the greatest elements of a curtain in this type of blind. Roman blinds can offer the functionality of a blind along with the luxury that curtains offer – you get the best of both worlds.
Roman blinds boast great flexibility and versatility, which is another of their appealing qualities. They are ideal for your living room since they contain a thermal lining to help with insulation and warmth and a blackout lining to help with light regulation.
Blinds for large windows
Does your home, property or commercial space have large windows? Well, count yourself lucky! Large windows allow for a large amount of natural light to enter your home and create a huge portrait of the outside world without the need for artificial lighting.
There are several benefits of having large windows, one being that they could save you a lot of money on your energy bills! Even better, you can take in breathtaking views of the wonderful outdoors from the comfort of your own sofa.
However, since large windows allow more natural light, you’ll need a solution to control the flow of light that enters through them. Large windows are common in larger buildings such as commercial buildings and properties – which we are proud to have provided blinds for in the past.
What are the best blinds for large windows?
We recommend vertical blinds for large windows since they allow for a substantial amount of natural light to pass through and light up your space while also maintaining privacy so that no one can see into your room.
Another great style of blinds that we believe are perfect for large windows is panel blinds. Since they act as an exceptional room divider, panel blinds are perfect for larger windows, such as the windows you may find in larger living rooms. They are a brilliant choice for large door windows such as patio windows, for example. Moreover, panel blinds also provide straightforward and convenient light control and simple maintenance because they do not frequently attract dust.
Our expert blinds design team will collaborate with you to discuss your window decorating ideas and the number of panels required for the space, regardless of the function your panel blinds will serve.
Blinds for schools
From roller blinds and Venetian blinds to motorised blinds and vertical blinds, we have a huge array of blinds that are child-friendly and safe for use in schools. At Solaire Blinds, we recommend the use of cordless blinds systems in schools and the education sector to minimise and prevent the risk of accidents with cords for children.
To ensure the greatest levels of safety for children, our vertical blinds come with “mono control” as a standard feature. Your blinds will feature a wand to turn the individual vanes if you choose to opt for the mono control option. With this approach, you can stop worrying about children getting caught up in corded blinds.
So, what are you waiting for? Order your bespoke vertical blinds from our incredible team here at Solaire Blinds today!
How we measure your blinds
The way we measure your blinds can depend on the type of blinds you want to be measured and fitted in your space. Whether we are measuring and installing pleated blinds, conservatory blinds, wooden blinds, roller blinds or any other type of window blinds, we first have to start by measuring depending on your recess.
The space between a window pane’s surface and the wall it is recessed into is known as the window recess. To determine whether or not your window has a recessed space, we must first measure the area where the blinds will be installed. We will need to determine whether your blind will fit inside or outside of the recess (if it does have one). If you have a deep window recess, your blind can fit nicely inside of it; however, if your window recess is shallow or you want to keep this area free, it will be better to place your blind covering outside of it.
Looking to measure your own blinds?
You can measure blinds yourself without a recess. To do so, you should use a metal tape measure for precise measuring, as with all blind measurements.
To begin, measure the width of the window and add 10cm (4″). This will enable a 5 cm/2 inch overlap on either side of the window, effectively blocking out light and maximising the effectiveness of your blinds.
You must choose where you want the bottom of your blinds to terminate once you have determined the width. After making this choice, measure the window’s length from the top down to this point.

For years, we have been providing the greatest blinds and delivering top-notch customer service to the blinds business. You can talk to a member of our team online today or by calling us on 0345 222 0138.
In order to prevent the fabric from catching on the window sill, a length deduction is typically needed when measuring the space for vertical blinds. We’ll use our machines to calculate this deduction for you.
You will need to add an additional 5cm/2″ if you choose roller blinds to accommodate the operating system that operates the blinds. Roller blinds are typically best positioned outside of the recess.
