Do all my blinds have to be the same colour and match?

Do all my blinds have to be the same colour and match?

No, not necessarily. Let me explain.

If you are going for a different style in different rooms, choose the blind to suit that room. We have some bold colours or patterned blinds to make a statement in the room. Often these blinds can have a white backing, so from outside of the window it looks uniform, but inside you have created a specialised custom blind look.

Reasons you would choose different fabric:

  1. You want the blind fabric to suit a special coloured lounge, a special coloured wall feature or a mood you are trying to create.

  2. You have different heat or cold issues in different rooms. For example, if you have a particularly hot western facing room, you may choose the most practical thick blind or curtain fabric available to keep the heat or cold out.

    Tip: If you have a spectacular ocean view, you may want a blind that is just down briefly for the morning sun but UP most of the time. Its more for function than for style. Choose a high-quality screen to take the glare and heat off the window.

  3. You have issues with Privacy and neighbours. You need a certain type of window covering in one room to give you privacy. Many coloured fabrics have a WHITE backing. From the outside they all can look the same.

  4. You have opted for neutral greys or whites through the house and want to add a level of texture or "pop" of colour with your furniture, including your window furnishings.

    Tip: Considering most blinds are changed around every 6-8 years, this will fit it well with your timing to revamp and update your look.

  5. You can't afford to do everything you want right now

The one thing decorators always say to do FIRST!

"Function over Form" choose the function first. What do you want the window furnishing to do? When practicality proceeds beauty. You can still have beauty, however, choose your function first, then choose the beautiful fabric to suit.

  • Protect from heat?
  • Protect from cold?
  • Give you Privacy?
  • Keep the glare off the TV?
  • Give me blackout to sleep during day?

Then choose a beautiful fabric to suit!

The 1 thing you must do!

Get kerb appeal right! If the blinds, curtains or plantation shutters of your home all looks the same from the front, then its ok to have different roller blinds in the rest of the house. Having mismatching roller blinds, curtains or plantation shutters as you look at the front of your house looks messy and unfinished. Real Estate agents often talk about the value good "kerb appeal" adds to a home.

Tip: if you want Plantation Shutters throughout but don't have the budget, why not choose the front of the house for Plantation Shutters and choose venetian blinds or roller blinds for the side of the house?
