Which blackout binds are best for summer?

Once again the great British summer returns. Although we all love a bit of sun, it can leave our homes feeling hot, humid and intolerable. However, with a pair of blackout blinds, your home can be cool, making you feel more comfortable, allowing you to make the most of the warmer weather without having to make any sacrifices. We’ve put together a guide on how to choose your ideal blackout blinds, which blinds work for each room and sharing our experts' top choices from our blackout blind collection.

With blackout blinds available in a variety of different styles, colours and patterns, they are one of the most versatile yet practical choices when it comes to blinds. Our expansive collection ensures that there is a perfect blind for every room in your home as well as interior design style and with options of additional features, they can be tailored to each room's purpose.

How to choose your ideal blackout blind.

When it comes to choosing a pair of blinds, we recommend to keep in mind three things:

  1. Is it practical for the room you are looking to fit it in?
  2. Does it match the style of the room?
  3. Is it fit for purpose?

We will guide you through how our collection of blinds cater towards these all important questions and by the end of the process you’ll be able to select your perfect blackout blinds. 

Blackout blinds for every room.

As we mentioned, we have a blackout blind option for every room! Whether you are looking to find something to complement your home office, bedroom or living room, there’s plenty of choices for you to choose from.

Bedroom blinds

For bedrooms, we always recommend purchasing stylish yet high quality blackout blinds as they block the light out completely and bring tranquility to the room to support a better night's sleep. For a timeless option, our blackout roller blinds make the perfect option.

Available in a variety of different colours and patterns, you can pick a neutral shade to blend into an existing interior design palette or go for a bold pattern to make a statement. We love the versatility of the Genesis Blackout Luxe range as it offers something for everyone.

Living room and conservatory blinds.

If you are looking to have a bit more control over the amount of light that is allowed into the room, our blackout vertical blinds are great. With an easy mechanism to help you open and close the blinds, they make the perfect choices for living spaces and conservatories as they offer light control and privacy.

We love this bright yellow option for the summer time and during the other months they offer a splash of colour and brightness into any room.

Bathroom blinds.

Our blackout blind options for bathrooms are endless! Whether you are looking to accessorise your downstairs wash closet, master ensuite or family bathroom, there are plenty of choices for you.

Our PVC blackout blinds are an ideal option for a bathroom as they are water-resistant and can be wiped clean. In particular, this Quackers PVC Roller Blind is a popular bathroom pick as it adds a statement and suits the environment perfectly.

Nurseries and playrooms.

If you have little ones running around the home, their safety is at the top of the list when it comes to decorating. That’s why we always recommend our electric blackout blinds as they make the perfect child-safe option when it comes to blinds.

Whilst being ideal for those difficult to reach windows, they also have no hanging chains providing increased child safety. You can also add a remote control on to this range, offering maximum security for your family.

If you are looking to decorate your children’s rooms, we have the perfect choices in our Disney collection, which we know they will love!

Blinds for dining room or patio doors.

If you are looking for blackout blinds to fit your large windows and doors, we recommend our blackout panel blinds as they offer privacy, light control and fit a larger space perfectly. 

Combining premium style and functionality, there is no need for you to compromise with this choice. These blinds look chic in any room in your home and block out the light ensuring your home is cooler during the summer.
