It’s a case of stating the obvious, but many of us have certainly been spending a lot more time at home since March 2020. Home has become the primary place where many people not only eat and sleep but also work and exercise, giving us plenty of time to reassess our interior decor.
As you have undoubtedly had extra time to be staring at the walls of your home, you might have felt struck by how, well, dated your blinds look. So, what blinds should you replace them with? Of course, it’d be up to you – but, in this blog, here are some ideas inspired by blind trends that have taken off in 2021.
Let There Be Light
Keeping your home well-lit would bode well for both your mood and work-from-home productivity. However, you don’t strictly have to invest in any extra electric lighting, as you could instead opt to make better use of the natural light that pours in through your windows.
Once fitted over those windows, roller blinds in a sheer or semi-sheer fabric would be able to filter and diffuse that light throughout the room.
Feel Blue… In The Right Kind Of Way
While – like many homeowners – you might continue to favour neutral tones for your residential decor, calming shades like navy are among popular recent design trends.
That shouldn’t be too surprising. After all, we could all do with a soothing effect in our bedrooms, where the sight of a blue blind across the window could effectively promote sound sleep.
By Georgian! The ‘Regencycore’ Style
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a homeowner in possession of a Netflix subscription must be in want of Regencycore decor.
Well, okay, “must” might be slightly overstating things. However, possibly thanks to the hit Netflix series Bridgerton, as well as popular film and TV adaptations of Jane Austen novels, Google searches for ‘Regency interiors’ have soared by 9,500%.
Roman blinds in a floral or botanical print can be the perfect blinds for a Regency fanatic, enabling them to block out nearly all sunlight if they wish.
Sustainable Coverings For Windows
Increasing awareness about climate change has underlined the importance of making eco-friendly choices. Fortunately, blinds are very sustainable by nature, as they can easily be moved from property to property and cut to size if they don’t quite fit on a different window. You could even further communicate your green credentials by choosing varying shades of green as the colours for your next blinds.
We invite you to visit our showroom in the West Yorkshire town of Dewsbury, where you will be able to see the high-quality blinds of various styles and colours. We are located on 540 Wakefield Road but urge you to check our blinds shop opening hours before you visit.
