Steps to picking the right colour blinds for your space

Have you ever considered how important blinds are? Not only do they add to the decor and style you envisioned for your home or office. But they also allow you to have control over certain influencing factors, such as privacy, light control and temperature. They even help to create an illusion of size in your room. This is why choosing a high-quality blind is an important task when decorating your home.

With all this in mind, it is time to ask the next big question. What colour should I consider picking when it comes to my blinds?  With so many colour and material options available, how do we know what is the right colour for us? And with so many factors to consider, we need to make sure that we have everything in mind when purchasing our blinds.

This is why we have put together some important steps that we recommend you use when choosing your blinds to know exactly what colour you will want to turn your space into a design masterpiece.

Step 1: Deciding on the Style & Decor you want to achieve. 

When it comes to picking the right colour blinds, the first step is to consider the style and decor goals that you are trying to accentuate, not only will this give you a brief idea of the type of blinds you may want, but it will also help you pick the right colour. To help create a picture, we have put together a few different decorative styles and helpful tips that we suggest to go with your desired style;

  • Image of minimalist space to have white blindsThe Minimalist; With this modern style should come a clean, simple and modern blind. Your lighter colours, such as white and light grey.
  • The Earthy and Natural; wishing to decorate your home with earth and natural tones, then try looking at basswood, plaswood and bamboo blinds, all in your brownish-beige colour tones.
  • The Artsy and Eclectic; If you’ve got houseplants, Oriental rugs and original artwork peppered throughout your space, blinds might not seem like the most obvious choice. But here’s the thing: They, too, can be eclectic in the right scenario. We always love to see our dark-coloured blinds complementing eclectic spaces. On the other hand, if you want to lighten up a moody, masculine room, then some neutral-coloured blinds will do the trick.
  • Ultra Modern: Blinds naturally lend themselves to modern spaces, however with the right colour choice, you can catapult your environment even further in your design preferences. For example, with an idea of clean & sophisticated, you can never go wrong with white. For a more techno-masculine feel, integrating a set of grey blinds would be a perfect choice.

Step 2: Defining the purpose of the room

The next step is to define the purpose of your room, this will not only help you decide on the colour that you want, but it will also help you figure out the style of blinds that the room will need. To define the purpose you can ask some of the following questions:

  • What will this room be used for? The purpose of the room will probably be the easiest way to determine what colour you need or want. For example, maybe the room is used as a TV room, this means that you will want blinds that are typically darker to block out light.
  • Who will be using the room? Maybe you are looking to purchase your hotel room, to provide your guest with a warm and welcoming feel? Or maybe it is for your office, whether you want to carry that feeling of privacy but also productivity. Then it is always a good selection to focus on a modern feel of blinds, with your whites and light greys.

Step 3: Factor in the aesthetics of the room 

Now that we have defined the style and the purpose of the room, it is time to focus on the aesthetics, these are things such as the size of the room, the contrasting and complementing colours and seasons.

  • Size, whether you want to make your room feel larger or your ceiling higher, choosing the right type of blind and its colour can help with that. Generally picking your lighter and cleaner colours create that sense of increased size.
  • Contrasting and Complementary colours. This comes down to personal preference and the effect that you want your blinds to have. If you decide to contrast them, then choose a colour that stands out from the rest of the decor, bold colours are a great example of this. Or If you decide to complement your blinds, then picking colour will depend on the decor you have chosen.
  • Perhaps you want to change your blinds by the seasons, this will also be a deciding factor in the colours that you choose.

Step 4: Picking the perfect blind

And finally, before we pick the colour, we need to pick the blind, that we will use for our room. With such a wide range of blinds available, picking a blind is as easy as one, two, three. Whether it be aluminium Venetian blinds, Fabric roller blinds, bamboo and plaswood or even vertical blinds, picking a blind has never been easier.

Still unsure what kind of blind you want, why not take a look at some of the types of blinds that would fit well with the different rooms in your house.

Step 5: Choosing a colour

Now that you know what the style and decor of your room are, what it is used for, have factored in the aesthetics and decided on what blind you want, it’s time to pick a colour.

One of the best ways to do this is by focusing on the three colour rule.

The three colour rule states that you shouldn’t add more than three colours to a space. This often comes in handy when picking a colour as your choices become limited, which is why it is important to understand the aesthetic, decor and style of the room. For example, if you have a room that is earthy & natural, you now have fewer colours to choose from.

So what colour do you think will go great for your next window covering?
