How To Pair Curtains and Blinds

When it comes to mastering your window décor for ultimate practicality and style, mixing curtains and blinds can be one of the trickiest things to get right. Pairing the two can offer a more ‘finished’ look as well as extra functionality, so it is worth making sure you choose the right products. Here are our top tips for pairing curtains and blinds:

How To Pair Curtains and Blinds

Combining Window Treatments

The two-in-one: Vertisheers

Vertisheers offer the option to mix curtains and blinds without actually needing two products. The softness of a curtain combined with the chic style of a sheer blind, Vertisheers are a two-in-one product that deliver both a sheer and block-out solution. As stunningly elegant as they are practical, they allow for flexible light and privacy control and are a low-maintenance option for both windows and doors.

Pairing Curtains with Roller Blinds

To maximise natural light: If you’re after more natural light without compromising on privacy, matching a translucent roller blind with a block-out curtain will do the trick to allow lots of energising natural light to flow through during the day. Alternatively, you could achieve the same effect by matching a block-out roller blind with a translucent or sheer curtain.

For light blocking: For the ultimate in block-out functionality (perfect for a media room) go for a block out roller blind paired with a block out curtain. Of course, you can always opt for a sheer curtain so you can still enjoy the natural light, or if you want to go that extra step you can go for double roller blinds with a sheer or block out curtain.

For general purpose: When you want the best of both worlds for main living spaces, go for any style of roller blind with a sheer curtain.

For style: Woven roller blinds paired with traditional block out curtains will deliver huge style points and suit any interior décor.

Pairing Curtains with Venetian Blinds

To maximise natural light: Pair your timber or aluminium venetians with a sheer curtain to allow the light in and soften the feel of the room.

For light blocking: Go for timber or aluminium venetians with a block-out curtain for double the light-blocking effect.

For general purpose: Aluminium venetians work really well with a block out curtain for most rooms.

For style: Try striking timber venetians paired with a block out curtain.

Pairing Shutters with Curtains

The last thing you want to do is detract from the elegance and simplicity of shutters, so a sheer curtain over the top of your shutters will work perfectly.
