How to Decide Which Types of Blinds are Best for Your Home

When shopping for blinds, it can be difficult to decide which are best for your home, especially when there are so many different types, styles, materials and colours available on the market. In this guide, we’ll be looking at how you can decide which blinds are best for your home.

Consider Your Needs

Before browsing the market, you first need to think about what you actually need your blinds to do. For example, if you’re looking for more privacy in your living room but still want plenty of lighting control, then Vision or Venetian blinds may be the most suitable option for you.

Similarly, if complete darkness for your bedroom is something you’re after, then you should be looking for blackout blinds, which keep all light out when closed.

Think About Each Room

When blind shopping, you should think about each room individually, considering both the needs and design. For example, in your living room, you may wish to opt for luxurious Roman blinds in order to provide extra insulation and look great. However, these types of blinds won’t work everywhere in your home, such as in the kitchen or bathroom.

This is because these rooms are frequently exposed to high levels of moisture, which could quickly cause Roman blinds to become damp and mouldy. Instead, you may wish to choose something more easy to clean and maintain, such as waterproof roller blinds.

At Aspiration Blinds, our waterproof blinds are blinds made from a water-resistant material and available in a range of different styles and colours that won’t warp or fade when they come into contact with water and frequent humidity. They offer a number of other advantages including: mould resistance, colour Maintenance, durability and ease of cleaning.

This is incredibly important in rooms such as the kitchen, where your blinds may be splashed by various sauces and oils which would likely otherwise stain the blinds.


When choosing the right design for your blinds, there are a number of different routes you may wish to take. For example, if you want your blinds to be the main feature of your living room, you might want to look at Roman blinds in luxurious fabrics and bold colours like emerald, fuschia or rich navy blues. 

Alternatively, if you prefer a more clean and simple style that doesn’t stand out from the walls, you might want to consider Roller, Venetian and Vertical styles in plain or lightly textured fabrics in neutral colours such as white, cream, beige and grey or colours that match your walls.
