Window dressings can change the atmosphere of your home completely, and getting it right can make the difference between a comfortable space and one that really feels like home. Whether you’re looking for a practical solution for a wet room, or a beautiful way to finish a bedroom, we have plenty of options for you.

Here at Direct Blinds, we offer our blinds and shutters in many different styles and colours, so that we can match any colour scheme or decor. Considering every aspect of your window dressings can ensure that you end up with the results you want, and our top tips will help you to get it right.

Getting It Right With Window Dressings

Every home is unique, and we enjoy the challenge of finding the perfect window dressing solution for every customer. We advise everyone to:

1. Measure correctly. It’s very important to get the sizing right when you are choosing window coverings, as a blind or set of curtains that is slightly too small for your window will look bad. Ensure that you have carefully considered the effect you want and that you select the right width and length measurements to achieve this.

2. Check positioning. The window dressings you choose will look different depending on the way that you hang them, so it’s important to take the time to work out which position will give the best effect. Hanging a blind in a recess can give you a useful windowsill space, but hanging it outside the recess can look more effective in some rooms.

3. Make the most of variety. Don’t be tempted to stick to just one style of window dressing, but look at each room individually and find the very best solution for the windows. Spaces that need a very practical option, such as bathrooms and children’s playrooms, for example, may be suited to a PVC roller blind, while window dressings in areas such as lounges and bedrooms can be matched to the decor and purpose of the room.

4. Invest in quality. Good quality window dressings do not have to be very expensive, but it is not worth being tempted by badly made or ‘bargain’ products that will quickly need replacing. Ensure that you choose good quality options, and consider wooden plantation shutters if you want a solution that will last as long as your home.
