Hillarys research highlights new design features of modern blinds and windows


Blinds have not always been the most fashionable of window coverings although recent research suggests that designers are now more inclined to use blinds for their space saving, modernist style that it difficult to find with any other form of window covering; blinds are also extremely practical and perfect for use in conservatories. Sarah Quilliam of Hillarys Blinds argues that “If you’re after a sleek and contemporary look in your conservatory where the blinds fit flush to the window, allowing windows and doors to be opened with ease, opt for a pleated or venetian blind in a PerfectFit frame.“ The use of such a system is perfect for sealed unit double glazing as the blinds fit seamlessly, with no need for drilling or screws, giving enhanced privacy as they ‘hug’ the window and cover any light gaps. ”The blinds won’t interfere with handles but will leave the sills clutter free. You’ll also be able to open your windows without having to pull up the blinds first which is very practical"

It is not just in conservatories however where blinds are becoming the window covering of choice for interior designers. All over the house they are a great way to control light and create privacy. Of the varieties of blinds out there "Venetian blinds are perhaps the most effective way to control light,” continued Sarah, “as they can be adjusted to filter, or totally cut out the light, or pulled up completely to let it flood in. And of course they’re a great way to keep rooms cool and comfortable when it’s hot outside – much more eco-friendly than reaching for the air con!” Subsequently with the use of blinds it is possible to reduce fuel bills in both summer and winter, utilising the thermal properties of a window covering that fits snugly into the window frame.

It is not purely venetian blinds that have such thermal properties; equally pleated blinds can be used for the purpose. Sarah states that “neat pleated blinds are perfect for the roof of your conservatory, but are a good option for the sides too. Fabulous in any room, pleated blinds also work especially well at period windows or in limited spaces, such as hallways and staircases. They create a sleek, stylish look that personalises any room, providing privacy with a light and airy feel or a sumptuous glow, depending on the colour scheme you choose. And many pleated blind fabrics are available with sun-reflective backings which will help keep the heat in during winter and your home cool during the warmer months.”

With fashions in interior design changing rapidly blinds are now the en vogue dressing for any home. The fact that they can provide efficient heat retention and cooling is an added bonus that can help reduce fuel bills and increase household budgets.
