Which blind will be best in my Bedroom?
This question is difficult to answer as it depends on what you are looking for in terms of light blocking.
If the most important thing for you is privacy then venetian blinds or shutters may be the answer. These types of window coverings will not blackout when closed as light will seep in around the edges and between the slats. Even so the easy privacy afforded is making these increasingly popular in bedrooms.
Having a window covering which blocks out almost all of the light is important for many people. The most cost effective solution for this is a roller blind.
There are many blackout roller blind fabrics to choose from which will darken a room effectively although it is important to remember that there will be light seepage around the edges of the blind and along the top. For even better blackout then consider using a roman blind with blackout lining or a honeycomb pleated blind as these will have much smaller gaps at the edges.
Curtains with blackout lining will also be very effective, although a Pinch Pleat heading will give better blackout than Eyelets as they can be fitted closer to the wall.
Of course if you would like Privacy and Blackout, this can be achieved with a combination of window dressings, and this layering can also look very stylish and luxurious
Please remember though, there is no such thing as 100% blackout blinds, but using a combination of these window dressings then you can get fairly close!
