Not sure whether to install blinds or curtains?

Let our expert Interior Designers help with your decision…

Firstly, the main question is which do you prefer? Blinds’ main strength over curtains is the variability of the different styles. We have listed these below.

Did you know? Almost every style of blind can be made motorised. We can install and set this up for you in your own home!

Easy Cleaninng & Maintence

Blinds can be much easier to clean and maintain than curtains. With blinds, you can wipe clean with a soft dust cloth, feather duster, damp cloth or vacuum brush.

Light Control

Blinds in certain styles allow more flexibility with how much light can be in the room by simply tilting the blinds. This is perhaps one of the primary reasons people choose blinds over curtains.

Heat Control

Blinds can be used to control the heat, whether keeping you cool or keeping the heat in on cold winter nights. By using the thermal options, this is easy to manage.

Child Safety

Here at Interior Inspirations, we take child safety very seriously. We are constantly looking for ways to make our blinds safer and keep them practical.


A Roman Blind is a fabric-based pleated blind with a simple pull of the attached cord that allows you to adjust the blind level upwards and downwards according to your preference.


A Roller Blind is a single piece of fabric which wraps around a casing and fits into the top of your window frame. It is operated up and down by a pull cord attached to the bottom of the blind or by a side-winding chain mechanism attached to the blind casing.


Shutters (also called Shutter or Plantation Shutters) comprise a solid frame containing panels that fold open like doors.


The structure of Venetian blinds is simple: they are horizontal slats made from either wood or metal and suspended on ladder cords. They can be easily adjusted to let in more or less light and are easy to raise and lower.


Vertical blinds consist of a series of vertical fabric louvres or slats, which can be twisted to close and obscure the window or opened wide to let in lots of light.

The louvres can be linked either by a chain or clain-less and operated using a cord positioned at the far right or left of the blind.

Day and Night
Day and Night Blinds are a great way of controlling the level of light coming into your room. The front layer of fabric moves independently of the back allowing the stripes to glide between each other giving an open and closed effect. 



Visage blinds have a unique design comprising two layers of voile with soft tilting fabric vanes between. This allows you to easily change the mood of your room by adjusting the amount of light entering. You can filter out UV rays and glare by simply rotating the vanes manually or motorised.


Allusion blinds are a cross between a curtain, vertical blind and voile, and they are the perfect window dressing solution for the modern home. They can be fitted to windows, patio doors and large bi-folding or sliding doors, making them a diverse choice that will look beautiful in your home.

Perfect Fit

Perfect-fit blinds typically consist of a frame that attaches to the window frame using clever and discrete brackets that slide in between the glass and the internal window beading. The blind is mounted within this frame, giving the appearance of a seamless integration with the window.


Panel blinds are a variation on the traditional vertical blinds, with wide fabric panels that slide smoothly across on a subtle headrail. The size of the panels makes them an ideal solution for large windows, patios and bi-fold doors.


Honeycomb blinds – cellular blinds – are characterised by their unique intelligent cellular pleated design. The cells provide an insulation barrier that reduces heat exchange in summer and maintains warmth in the winter.


We supply and install all Velux Blinds, including roof windows and modular skylights, decorative blinds, sun-screening products, and roller shutters.
