The perfect window treatment for your bedroom
Whether you’re five years old or 50, your bedroom is your haven.
Your quiet and private area that is reserved for only you to enjoy.
Whether the bedroom in question is reserved solely for sleeping or is used for studying and playing too, it is essential to get the interior and finishing correct for the room to function to its full potential.
Depending on who the room is for the interior and window furnishings should match the needs and requirements of the room. Little details such as colour, material and style can go a long way to make huge differences to your home.
Children’s bedrooms should be light, airy and welcoming. They should be a place a child can feel safe and where they can enjoy their freedom a little more than in other rooms in the house where there may be items that children should not be left alone with.
When it comes to choosing the correct window treatments there are many factors to consider in order to get them right. Does your child take naps? Do they go to bed before it becomes dark? If you answer yes to either of those questions it is best to choose blockout blinds or curtains. These Blinds and Curtains are created to block out all light and keep even a sun-facing room dark and cool when necessary making nap times and bed times easier to establish.
One of the many advantages of choosing block out blinds or curtains is that whilst having the ability to provide darkness when it is light, they can be opened and tucked away into a very small space and will provide a seamless connection with the great outdoors.
As with installing anything in your child’s bedroom, safety is paramount; at The Blinds Company all of our Blinds and Curtains come with the relevant safety equipment and free instructions for installation (see our blog post on Blinds Safety with Children here).
Sometimes it may seem our teenagers enjoy being locked away for the evening, every evening with the curtains closed, headphones in and laptop on ignoring their surroundings. However, most sulking is just a phase and your child is likely to take pride in their room again soon.
Giving your son or daughter’s bedroom a makeover could, in fact, encourage your child to keep it cleaner, be more sociable and invite more friends to the house. It may even help them to snap out of the permanent bad mood that appears at 13 and lasts for two years.
Try to avoid Block Out fabrics – teenagers do not need any more encouragement to sit in the dark straining their eyes over computer and television screens. Choose a sheer or thin fabric in order to keep the room light and airy whilst maintaining their privacy.
Your bedroom is the most important room in the house; the luxurious sanctuary you may have been dreaming about your entire life. Collecting furniture, bedding and paintings throughout the years has meant you finally have the bedroom of your dreams and can go to bed in your perfect surroundings.
Whether it’s a walk in wardrobe, a 42” flat screen TV or an antique dressing table, you each have your own prized possession that has made the stamp on your room, however the key to a perfect bedroom is the ability to change the mood and atmosphere for its different needs.
Lighting and your choice of Blinds or Curtains are the perfect ingredients for introducing light control in the bedroom. Spotlights, or lights that can be dimmed, as well as candles, are perfect for creating a mood whilst it is dark.

The curtains frame your view and add a touch of luxury to an otherwise simple interior.
Guest bedrooms are the least trafficked rooms in our homes – even when guests are frequent. However, that doesn’t mean the interior should be compromised on, it should be simple, fresh and not focus too much on a singular theme or style.
Sleeping in another person’s home for the first time can be a little uncomfortable. Sleeping in a bed guests are not familiar with, and with sounds and light that they aren’t used to, can make for a restless night’s sleep – however guest rooms can also have to ability to feel like luxury hotels where you receive the unbeatable benefits of “knowing the owner”.
The trick to having the perfect guest room is simple – provide the tools to let your guests make up their own minds. For example provide a fan and a heater, a pair of Curtains and of Blinds, a duvet and a thinner bed sheet and leave your guest to decide what they would prefer.
Roller Blinds combined with a pair of Curtains give your guests the choice about how much light they would like in the day, as well as the option of how dark they would like their room to be when they sleep – meaning they can sleep easy and you can be the hostess with the mostess!
