Vertical Blinds

Colour and Ambiance

The use of different coloured blind slats

Natural light in most rooms is a pre-ordained requirement. However, the control of that light by the use of curtains, or blinds is often as necessary as the light itself.

Controlling light by means of a Blind can also create a different mood in the room itself. The subtle shading that can be achieved by opening or closing the slats on a vertical blind can be quite outstanding.

Adding shade to areas of your room where the natural sunlight is particularly bright can be beneficial. You may need this shade when reading or watching TV. Leaving the rest of your room bathed in natural light.

The use of white slats in vertical blinds is by far the most popular choice for most people. This is because shades of white’s and creams are neutral and will blend in with most, if not all of your other soft furnishings. But spare a moment to think about other colours of slats that could also be used to enhance your existing furnishings.

On this page: Colour Wheel you can see an interactive colour wheel. Take a look to see the abundance of complimentary colours that you could use when decorating your rooms. By adding the colour of your blinds into this scenario you will be pleasantly surprised I’m sure.

The point to this page is to implore you not to forget your choice of colour for your blinds when re decorating the rooms in your home or office. They are after all as important as the rest of your décor and soft furnishings.
