Curtains and blinds to suit all budgets

With winter closing in we are all looking for ways to keep our homes cozy and contain the heat.  For this reason we thought now would be a good time to publish a feature on curtains and blinds.

Knowing what to buy can be a tricky task as there is so much to choose from.  You also have to try and work out the measurements.   Over the next few weeks we will be looking at various styles, offering you the chance to win your own set of curtains  as well as publishing a genius step by step video from The Natural Curtain Company showing you how to measure up for curtain tracks, curtain poles and roman blinds…we hope you enjoy the features.

The above images are from Luxaflex, they have a huge selection of Roman blinds which are suitable for any room in the home.  I particularly like the pleated blinds above as they maintain privacy while still allowing in some light.  If you’re looking for a blind with an elegant pattern then the design below may be a good option.  The blinds are from The Natural Curtain Company. The pattern itself is fairly traditional and yes it look beautiful as a back drop to this modern livingroom.

The image below is from a company called Hillary’s The owner has carefully picked out the colours from the blinds and carried them through to the accessories adding colour to an otherwise plain white room.  The advantage of  this is that it can be updated relatively easily and cheaply As I mentioned in a previous feature, the golden rule when decorating is to use a maximum of two colours otherwise it starts to look too busy.

Lined and Interlined curtains in French Stripe PruneauIf you have a fairly neuatral colour scheme in your livingroom then the curtain style above would work really well.  The light cream fabric contrats well with the dark wooden floor and creates a soft frame for the large sash windows.

I really like the image above as they have used the roman blind as the main feature of the room and then integrated the design in to the room using a cushion in the same fabric.
