10 Best Blinds for Bedrooms: Create the Perfect Sleep Sanctuary
The bedroom is a place for lazy Sunday mornings with breakfast in bed, or somewhere to reside after a long day of work. It should be a place you love to come to, and a room that is always ready for relaxation. But what makes a bedroom feel like yours? Somewhere that is both a bedroom to be proud of, and a space that also feels like a home. Lighting, ambiance and privacy are three of the main factors to consider when creating your dream bedroom, and all of that starts with the perfect bedroom blind.
We’ve put together this handy guide to help you choose the best blind for your bedroom windows.
Which blinds are suitable for bedrooms?
Roller Blinds - A Roller blind is a piece of fabric which fits into the top of your window frame, within or outside of your window recess. They are operated by a thin chain attached to the blind casing at the top (unless you opt for a Motorised Roller blind), and usually feature blackout technologies, which is why they are the most popular choice for bedrooms.
Roman Blinds - Roman blinds are made from fabric that is designed to pleat when raised. The blind cords pull the fabric together and force the blind to fold into pleats, which makes for such a statement. Roman blinds offer a lot of character, charisma and charm within a bedroom, and are available in such a wide range of fabrics, perfect for every interior style.
Real and faux wooden blinds - Wood is a natural insulator and so can help to take the edge off chilly bedrooms and block draughts. Wooden blinds have tilt able slats to allow you to filter light if you wish, and manage your privacy. When fully closed, wooden blinds block out the majority of natural light - however they are not fully blackout, so it’s definitely recommended you opt for some curtains if you are still wanting blackout features in your bedroom.
Perfect Fit blinds - Perfect Fit blinds are easy to fit window coverings contained within a frame which clips into your window. These blinds are perfect for first time DIY-ers, as they require no drills, or screws, and create zero mess… win, win!
Day and Night blinds - Day and Night blinds also known as light filtering or dim-out blinds, include both an opaque and sheer panel, and are perfect for those who want to filter out light and control privacy at the same time… all day and night. Day and Night blinds are also available in a wide variety of colours to make matching to your bedroom interior even easier.
Which blinds are best for a restful night's sleep?
It’s fair to say that we all desire a peaceful night's sleep, and with a huge variety of blinds on the market, it can definitely feel overwhelming to know which one is going to be the right fit for your home, and lifestyle. Blackout blinds offer black-out qualities in your bedroom. These blinds literally do what they say - black out any unwanted light that may enter through your window. This blind type is one of the most popular choices for a bedroom as it helps promote a full night's rest, and can also act as a thermal insulator and noise blocker, so even better if you live in a noisy neighbourhood!

Which blinds are best for small bedroom windows?
If your bedroom windows are slightly on the smaller size, then our range of Roman, Roller and Day and Night blinds are perfect. These blinds help to maximise light when fully open, making your room appear much bigger and brighter. Roman and Roller blinds are especially great for small bedroom windows, as when wound all the way up, they offer full transparency, but still provide an amazing design element to your bedroom.
Which blinds are best for large bedroom windows?
If you have large bedroom windows to cover, Perfect-fit blinds or Wooden blinds are the ultimate choice, as they create just the right amount of ambiance in a room. Often with larger windows, as much as they allow a lot of natural light in, which is always a great thing, it can also have a negative impact on a room, especially a bedroom. It’s important that you keep your bedroom warm and cosy, and often with having bigger bedroom windows, this can be quite the opposite.
Our Perfect-fit blinds take the mess and hassle out of hanging blinds yourself, which is great for bigger window areas. Wooden blinds offer the perfect balance of light and privacy function, whilst still adding the right amount of cosiness throughout.
