We've come a long way since the days of heavy floral drapes, kitsch wallpaper and gaudy lace curtains! Nowadays, modern homes champion neutral colour palettes, clean lines and minimal designs – particularly when it comes to window dressings.
Top 4 contemporary blinds to buy
There are no hard and fast rules about what style of blinds you should buy. After all, everyone has their own personal taste. However, if you want your blinds to match a modern interior, you should look for products that are simple, functional and fashionable.
Here are a few of the styles that work best for the most important rooms in your home.
Best modern blinds for the bedroom
Aside from protecting your privacy and helping you get a better night’s sleep; these modern bedroom blinds will make your evening sanctuary look better than ever.
- Roman Blinds: Often described as chic and sleek, these affordable fabric blinds feature a unique, fold-up design that works to create clean lines over any window. Drop the fabric down to enjoy your privacy and block out the early morning sunlight or fold them up completely to enjoy a clear view out of your bedroom window.
We recommend selecting blockout fabric when customising Roman blinds for the bedroom, to ensure maximum light and privacy control. You also have to option to choose from a massive range of colours, textures and patterns.
- Aero Roller Blinds: Otherwise known simply as double roller blinds, Aero rollers feature two fabric panels in one stylish system. The result? Twice the style options and double the benefits!
Available fabrics include sunscreen, blockout, translucent and sheer, to name a few. We’d highly recommend pairing a sheer or sunscreen fabric with a blockout layer, to enjoy sunshine during the day and total darkness at night. All fabrics are also available in contemporary shades such as white, grey or charcoal to match your modern interior.
Best modern blinds for the kitchen
A lot happens in the heart of the home, and your blinds bear the brunt of it! With exposure to spills, splashes, steam and smoke, it’s important that any kitchen blinds are waterproof, easy to clean and won’t hold on to smells.
- Aluminium Venetians: When it comes to picking a modern kitchen blind, you can’t go wrong with classic aluminium Venetian blinds. They’re affordable, durable, and feature contemporary, clean lines. Appearances aside, it’s the aluminium that really sets these blinds apart. Resistant to fading, peeling or warping, they’re a great option when it comes to no-fuss kitchen blinds.
Best modern blinds for the bathroom
Just like in the kitchen, durability is a huge consideration factor for modern bathroom blinds. But in addition to water-resistance, your bathroom blinds need to protect your privacy!
- Aluminium Shutters: While not technically a blind, these window treatments make for a premium bathroom addition. Just like aluminium venetians, this style of shutters won’t warp, peel or fade when exposed to humid or moist conditions. Functionality aside, shutters will bring a luxurious look and feel to the room and can be stained or painted to match your modern décor.
