It is time that the British changed their tune when it comes to window coverings; just think of how long we have endured net curtains and you will know what I mean. This article attempts to take a look at why the British have finally decided to give up curtains in favor of blinds.


Window blinds have finally evolved in UK homes


Taken some time to see a change in old habits; after nearly a century of British guess curtains were delayed by a change. While initially it was only Trendy youth and that started the trend in the use of blinds in the UK has become popular in recent years. Pop in any decent department store or curtain shop today and you will undoubtedly find a wide range of fashionable shades.


Everyone knows that the British are slow to change their habits and have a tendency to cling to the past more than their European peers. When it comes to blinds however, I have been seduced by the low cost, ease of assembly and some great designs. For those of you who are new to the blinds I can tell you these are the most popular types:

  • Roller blinds
  • Wood blinds
  • Roman Blinds
  • Venetian Blinds
  • Vertical Blinds
  • Blackout Blinds
  • Velux Blinds
  • Bamboo


The energy savings


You can find blinds to suit any room in the house. You can even get conservatory blinds and shutters energy savings are incredible. Home or office, you have a variety of shades that work with all types of designs and styles. Once you take a look at some of the great designs is not clear why the British have blind love; in my opinion they definitely here to stay.
