Why should I get blinds?

Blinds are not only practical but also a perfect way to enhance your space. Here are a few reasons why you should invest in blinds:

What can blinds do for your home?

Blinds are, first and foremost, practical. They control how much light flows through your windows and give you much-needed privacy in bathrooms and bedrooms. More than that, blinds are the design final touch you didn't know you needed. They're the icing on the cake that makes your interior look come together.

Style your home with blinds

There are many ways to use blinds as a stylish element in your house. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Match your blinds to your curtains: by matching your blinds to the colour of your curtains, you can create an eye-catching look and make the whole room come together.
  • Add depth with a darker blind: play with depths by selecting a dark blind behind lighter curtains. Visually, this will make the curtains sit forward and add depth to the room.
  • Play with print: be creative and have fun with your interior design by making your printed window blind the room's focal point.

Blinds can be used in many ways. Have fun with them and find a style that matches your personality.

Stylish blinds - find the right solution

Daytime living or restful nights? Whatever your needs, we have a blind to match. In our timeless collection of blinds, you'll find an extensive selection of blinds in different colours and styles.

Types of blinds

When choosing roof window blinds, consider what issue you want the blind to solve. Do you want to block out all light for an undisturbed night's sleep? Or do you want the option of more privacy without completely losing your view? With VELUX, the choice is yours:

  • Translucent roller blind: this blind is perfect for living rooms, offices, and playrooms where you want gentle dimming and the option of more privacy.
  • Blackout roller blind: the perfect blind for your bedroom! The blackout blind blocks out all light - day or night.
  • Duo blackout roller blind: Get the best of both worlds. A duo blackout roller blind lets you block out all light at night and softly diffuse light during the day.

Colour

Colours can make all the difference in a room. They can change the look and feel of a room, so, use the colour of your blinds to tie your décor together.

Whatever your style, we have a blind to match. From stylish colours to subtle patterns, with VELUX you can choose from an extensive range of blinds for your roof windows.
