Find your perfect new blinds or shutters

Whether you are looking for new blinds or shutters for any room in your home, Village Blinds & Shutters are here to help make the process convenient for you.

When it comes to designing your home, one of the key elements to consider is window treatments. Blinds not only provide privacy and light control but they also contribute to the overall aesthetic of the space. Among the various options available, Roman blinds have emerged as a popular choice, particularly in kitchens and utility areas. In this blog post, we will explore why Roman blinds are a softer choice, creating a warm and cosy feel in these areas.

Roman Blinds in Your Home

Picture this: a bright and airy kitchen with sunlight streaming through the windows. As you sip your morning coffee and prepare breakfast, you want to maintain privacy while still enjoying the natural light. This is where Roman blinds come in.

Roman blinds are a popular choice in kitchens because they offer a timeless look that complements various interior styles. Whether your kitchen boasts a modern, minimalist design or a classic, traditional aesthetic, Roman blinds can be customised to match your vision. With a wide range of fabric options and colours available, you can select a stunning fabric that enhances the overall ambience of your kitchen.

Not only do they look great, but Roman blinds can provide superior light control. By adjusting the blinds to different positions, you can easily regulate the amount of light entering your kitchen, and are also available in a range of blackout fabrics. This is particularly useful during the day when you want to reduce glare on your countertops or protect your delicate herbs from direct sunlight.

The Benefits of Roman Blinds

There are many reasons to choose these beautiful blinds for your home. Below we have outlined some key benefits:

  • Many different designs and colour options
  • Timeless look
  • Superior light control
  • Blackout options available
  • Adds that little bit of luxury
  • Due to their fabric, it adds a sense of warmth to your window
  • Usually, no curtains are required (based on personal preference and interior style)
  • Like all our blinds, they are made to measure bespoke to each individual window

Roman Blinds in Utility Areas

Roman blinds offer a cosy and warm feel, transforming a space into a welcoming retreat. As you fold freshly laundered clothes or put away your muddy shoes, the soft folds of the Roman blinds create a sense of comfort and tranquillity.

In addition to kitchens, Roman blinds are also a fantastic choice for utility areas, such as laundry rooms or mudrooms. These spaces often require a balance between functionality and aesthetics, and Roman blinds deliver on both fronts.

Imagine doing your laundry in a beautifully organised utility room with minimalistic decor. Roman blinds can elevate the look of your space by adding a touch of sophistication. Opt for a fabric that complements the colour scheme and style of your utility area, creating a cohesive and visually pleasing environment.

We installed Roman blinds in her kitchen and utility area, and also black vertical blinds throughout her home. We revisited her home nearly two years after the blinds were fitted, the customer was as happy now as when they were first installed.

This customer told us how she was so happy with our team which measured and fitted the blinds, which was seamless and hassle-free. They particularly love the cosy and warm feel they bring to her kitchen and utility area, making these spaces inviting and enjoyable to be in.

Village Blinds and Shutters Home Appointments FAQ

Our design consultant will arrive at the agreed time slot and ask you questions about your requirements and style preferences to help understand your project. They will measure your windows and discuss fabric/material options and provide you with a quotation based on your choices.

Depending on your requirements, a home appointment can take from 30 minutes for 1-10 blinds, to 60 minutes for 10+ blinds or window shutters. Our design consultant will work at your pace and we’re happy to stay longer to talk through your options and provide advice if you’d like.

We would ask ahead of the home appointment that you have arranged clear access to the window areas being measured and that any obstructing furniture or breakables near the windows are removed.

Once the windows are in, plastering has been completed and any tiling or skirting or architrave that might be close to the blinds has been installed. This will allow our design consultant to take accurate measurements.

Usually, our design consultant will be able to provide you with your quotation during your appointment.  Sometimes for some very bespoke projects pricing can take a little longer. If you haven’t heard back within 24 hours, give them a call or email and they will keep you updated.

Our production team work tirelessly to craft every single blind and shutter for our customers individually. Lead in times can vary depending on factors such as material availability and our production schedule. That being said we will always work to get your order as quickly as possible. Ask your design consultant for an up-to-date lead time estimate.
