Are you blinded by choice when it comes to choosing window blinds? When it comes to making the final decision to select the right window blinds for your home, there’s no doubt it can be a difficult task. There are so many different styles, all stunning in their own way as well as many different features you need to consider. When decorating or redecorating your home, everyone wants all aspects to be perfect, which here at Direct Blinds Cork we completely understand and appreciate. To try and help you with your selection, in this blog we are going to focus on helping you pick the right window blind colour that best suits you and your home with some of our top tips on colours.

Before diving in and selecting the right window blind colour for you, it’s always good to begin by asking yourself a couple of things that will ultimately impact the colour and style of blind you choose. The first, is in relation to your personal style. If you prefer a more contemporary or modern style, or whether you want a more classic look or transitional. Secondly, the type of blind you are after will influence the range of colours. For example, with roller blinds, the colours and patterns are endless, but with venetian blinds you are a little more limited with your colour options. Deciding on the style of blind, before the colour is always a good place to begin.

Below are just some of our top tips, when choosing the right colour window blind for your home:



Some people may claim this to be playing it safe but matching your window blinds with your window trim or moulding can be an effective way to reflect your style and add a classic look or theme to a room. If you want something in the room to be a focal point, apart from the windows, using this technique can help your window blinds and windows to blend into the background and paly a subtle role, while your focal point can shine and be the star. This is a timeless technique and approach and can be just what you were looking for. However, if going for this strategy, it’s important to get a sample and put it against your window to see if it’s a good match. Even white has different shades and undertones, so it’s not always as straight forward as you may think. Get a sample and place it against your window trim / moulding to get the colour that’s right for you.



Our second tip for selecting your window blinds colour is to match with a wall colour in the room. This works especially well if you have moody coloured walls or feature wall in the room. Choosing window blinds to match can offer a seamless, simple and modern look to a room. Alternatively, if you want to try and reduce a ‘heaviness’ feel to the blind, depending on the colour, you could go for the same colour family, but a few shades lighter.



Our third tip to help you decide on a colour for your window blinds, is to match with either your room flooring or permanent fixture. This can really help the flow of your home and help tie a room together, keeping a common theme. You could also try matching your blinds with other accessories in your room such as cushions, chairs, rugs etc. This is another effective way of carrying a common theme in your home.



Up to now, our tips have been about matching your blinds to suit your room. But have you thought of having a contrasting colour blind to help add a pop of colour to your room? This can add a contemporary feel to any room and can be exactly what a neutral room needs. It doesn’t even have to be a bright or bold colour, adding a dark blind to an all-white or neutral themed room can create the perfect contrast to suit even individuals with a more classic style.
