Bedroom Windows: Blinds or Curtains?

If you’ve recently moved to a new house or you're just looking for a change, updating your blinds or curtains is a great way to transform your bedroom and inject it with a new lease on life. But what do you choose, blinds or curtains?


Blinds

Blinds are the best option if you’re a light sleeper, or just prefer to block out the daylight. What’s more is, they’re less high maintenance than curtains, are ultra-practical, and always look tidy.

Blackout blinds have a thick lining that won’t allow any sunlight to get through, and are a very popular choice for bedrooms for this reason. On the other hand, if you’re looking to create a focal point of your bedroom window, Roman or roller blinds are the perfect option, as they allow plenty of pattern and design to show, even when raised.

Looking for something simpler and fuss-free? Wooden or Venetian blinds are the perfect choice. Plus, you can easily adjust them to allow in or block out as much light as you’d like.

Curtains

Always a popular choice for bedrooms, curtains are the stylish and elegant alternative to blinds. However, if you’re a light sleeper, it’s advisable to opt for a blind or add a blackout lining to your curtain to ensure no light can come through.

Curtains are easily customisable and available in a wide range of colours and fabrics to suit your bedroom. You can even add little details such as curtain poles and ties to really make them perfect for you and your bedroom.  

Our top picks for bedrooms are floor-length and panel curtains. Romantic, light and breezy, floor-length curtains will add a touch of elegance to your room, while panel curtains are designed in straight, sweeping sheets of fabric and are ideal for creating a multi-layered effect.


Overall, blinds are the best option if you're looking for something that will block out the light, whereas curtains tend to be more stylish and classic. If you're still searching for new bedroom windows, browse our range here.
