    How often should blinds be replaced?

    It’s likely that your blinds will start to deteriorate after around 5 years. However, blinds that have been looked after properly usually last for around 7 to 8 years.

    Signs that your blinds in Chelmsford are in need of replacement include:

    • Sun Damage – like all furnishings, blinds can become bleached by sunlight over time, causing their colour to fade and making them look old and worn.
    • Out of style – interior design experiences fast moving trends and fashions. While it’s not necessary to keep up to date with all of them, you might find yourself looking at your blinds one day and realising that they’re just too old fashioned.
    • Loss of function – if your blinds no longer open and close as they should, it could be time to get them replaced.

    Which blinds in Chelmsford should I get?

    When choosing the right blinds for you, there are a number of choices that you’ll have to make, such as:

    • What style of blinds you want
    • Which material you want them to be made from
    • What colour you want them to be

    Deciding on all of these is down to personal preference. Many people will try to find blinds that will fit into how their home currently looks, whereas others will see blinds as a chance to take their home’s style in a different direction. If you’re unsure which blinds will be best for you, you can always ask for our opinion, or seek the advice of an interior designer.

    Once you’ve chosen the blinds that are right for you, we’ll take the necessary measurements, fit the blinds, and then make sure that they’re functioning as they should.

    Why should I get blinds?

    Window blinds provide a host of benefits that any homeowner would find hard to say not to.

    At the top of the list of these benefits is undoubtedly the privacy and security that window blinds provide. Unlike with curtains, where you often have to choose between letting in natural light and having privacy, blinds allow you to have both. Top-down shades are particularly good for this.

    Blinds can also help complement the decoration or theme of your home. Since blinds are available in a large variety of styles, materials, and colours, you have a wide range of choice when deciding what will best suit the style of your home.

    Additionally, blinds will provide you with:

    • Lower energy bills – a lot of your home’s heat is lost through windows, and window blinds will help keep heat in, keeping your home warm while reducing your energy bills.
    • Less maintenance – unlike curtains, which require quite a bit of elbow grease to keep clean, blinds usually only require a quick wipe with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
    • Light control – with window blinds, it’s easy to adjust how much or how little natural light you let in.

    What type of blinds are in style?

    As with all interior design, different styles of blinds go in and out of fashion. Some styles, such as venetian, are almost always in demand, while some such as automated blinds are becoming increasingly popular. It’s best to research what’s popular at the time of buying if being in fashion is important to you.

    What is the average cost of window blinds?

    Costs will vary depending on factors such as style, size, and location, but prices can be as low as £40 for one window, or as high as £300 for a single window blind in some instances.

    Is it better to have blinds or curtains?

    While both blinds and curtains have their pros and cons, blinds offer more privacy without having to sacrifice letting natural light into your home. However, some people do think that curtains provide a better aesthetic for more spacious rooms.

    Can I have both blinds and curtains?

    Yes, of course. However, it’s not necessary. For rooms where you may have furniture up against the window or rooms where you don’t want fabric on the floor, you can go for blinds alone.
