Which blind? 5 extremely popular window blinds options:

  • Roller blinds: The most popular window blinds. Roller blinds fitted in domestic and commercial spaces add charm without stealing space. Choose from a range of lined fabrics, wood or plastic in various colours. They have a top rail and cord for up and down movement.
  • Roman blinds: These window blinds are similar to roller blinds, but they have a pole to wind the material around rather than a rail, so they appear a little more luxurious. Interior designers and domestic clients favour these.
  • Perfect fit blinds: The window blinds are within frames which sit securely between the window’s glass/UPVC and its beading. They operate even when the window is in an open position. These can be produced for any size or specification by Smart Blinds.
  • Motorised blinds: Easy operation for one blind or simultaneous management via an app on a smartphone, a home automation system or remote control. Welcome to the future of window blinds. Motorised roller blinds fitted in premises offer exceptional value for money. A full battery charge of 24 hours garners 5-7 months of operational power; this power is direct to the blind and the installers include a rechargeable battery and charger for convenience.
  • Vertical blinds (Track blinds): Many commercial clients find these unsurpassable. They feature vertical slats which are attached to the next adjacent strips and hang down the drop of the window.

Sourcing blinds in Reading needn’t be stressful. Speak to experienced, reputable local blinds fitters and you’ll be delighted with the process.
