The addition of curtains or window blinds can transform the vibe of any room and can have great influence over the atmosphere in the room. In this blog, Kawana takes you through some of the benefits window blinds can offer you and the different types of window blinds you can install in your home. 


Light Control  

If you are someone who loves a bit of privacy and to be in control of how much light is let into your living room, then slatted window blinds would be the perfect option for you. 

Energy Efficient 

With energy bills forever increasing and climate change a constant pressing concern, we should all be aiming to be energy efficient. And window blinds can help you do just that. Need heating or cooling? No problem, the slates trap air against the windows, acting as insulation. Trying to save money? We’ve got you covered. We offer window blinds in a range of different colours and shapes at varying prices to suit your needs. 

Aesthetics & Cleanliness 

Window blinds are super easy to clean and they look great! All that window blinds require in the way of cleaning is a bit of dusting every now and then. 

Types of Window Blinds

If you are going for a more traditional or classic look you’ll most likely want to look towards venetian blinds or roman blinds. The roman blinds offer a traditional yet contemporary look while the venetian blinds are an absolute classic that you can’t go wrong with. Some of the advantages of venetian blinds are included in the aforementioned benefits. Further than that, they are durable and suitable for all window sizes. 

Moving on to a more modern type of window blind, is the blockout roller blinds. Let’s be real, we all love a dark and cosy room that gives us the best chance of sleeping for as long as possible. On top of that, science actually says it’s in your best interest to sleep in a room that is completely dark. So, if this sounds like you, blackout roller blinds are the way to go. 

Now, if you are thinking of getting blinds for your living room or kitchen and want to go for something a bit lighter and not so heavy, then perhaps zebra blinds or honeycomb blinds are the way to go for you. 

The final window blind option we’d like to discuss with you are panel glide blinds. These are a great option if you have French doors or floor to ceiling doors. Benefits of these blinds include customizability and variability. This way, you can customise the blinds to suit your needs and have them designed in a style you prefer. 

Ever get super frustrated when the blind is in the way of you opening the door? Panel glide blinds completely remove this frustration for you as they are slender enough to fit under door handles.
