There are numerous different types of blinds available, some of which use fabrics and others are made using hard materials such as PVC, wood and aluminium. The most popular types for UK homes are Venetian blinds, roller blinds, vertical blinds and pleated blinds. At Morley Glass, we provide Venetian blinds and pleated blinds that are fitted into the cavity of a double or triple glazed window windows, which is called an integral blind. These are suitable for all kinds or windows, doors and conservatories, and a hugely popular choice fir bi-fold doors.
It depends on the look you are going for, what level of quality you are seeking and the size of your windows. Curtains can be cheaper if you are comparing a basic fabric and pole/rail combination with a premium quality blind, but equally an entry level blind for DIY fitting would generally cost less than any type of curtain.
Integral Uni-Blinds from Morley Glass are the best choice for the home because they are made to measure and will always look perfect because they are permanently sealed within the glass. Integral blinds are fitted by a window installer and once fitted they are easy to use thanks to a variety of manual and motorised control systems.
Choosing Uni-Blinds integral-blinds for your living room is a great choice because they provide effective shading and privacy with ease, whenever you want it. They also have the wow-factor that will be the perfect complement to contemporary or traditional décor.
Taking care when using all types of blinds will make sure you get the longest lifespan out of them. But with Uni-Blinds integral blinds, available in Venetian and pleated styles, you get the additional benefit of the blind being permanently sealed within the glass unit – so it is difficult if not impossible to damage the blind without breaking the glass. This means integral blinds can last a long time, especially those like Uni-Blinds that are manufactured using the world-renowned ScreenLine integral blind systems.
It will depend on the type of blind. Standard Venetian blinds can be fiddly to dust and wipe clean because each slat will need to be done individually. Fabric blinds such as pleated blinds or Roman blinds will be easy to remove dust using a vacuum cleaner, but marks will be more difficult to remove. The best option is a Uni-Blinds integral blind – it never needs cleaning because once it is fitted inside the glass unit, it is sealed away from dust and dirt permanently. The only cleaning you will ever have to do with an integral blind is a quick wipe of the control device, such as the cord winder or cordless slider, as part of your usual light cleaning routine.
As bedrooms are the most comfortable and personal of spaces, privacy and shading matters a lot here. You should aim to use a blind that blocks out light completely if you are a light sleeper or live in an area affected by light pollution, such as the Uni-Blinds pleated blackout integral blind. But, if you are not looking for a total blackout, Uni-Blinds Venetian integral blinds and standard pleated integral blinds will give you the perfect balance of shading and great looks.
For most home offices, you will be looking for a blind that is easy to operate, looks stylish and provides a great level of shading when you need it – enough to stop glare on computer screens but also easy to raise to let plenty of natural light flood in. You also don’t want an office blind that needs regular cleaning or one that clutters the room – that’s why the Uni-Blinds Venetian integral blind id ideal for offices.
