Keep it Neutral

Neutral colours, whatever the fashion, always retain an edge of sophistication and peaceful glamour. Considering how light acts as part of your neutral scheme is important. A plain and simple neutral colour scheme can feel bleak if subject to harsh light. Adding in a transulcent blind with a woven or printed pattern will filter the light’s intensity and add a glow to the space.

The new Reflection Collection of roller blinds from Luxaflex features rich, timeless textures and two-tone patterns. The gorgeous fabrics teamed with a colour palette from beautiful natural looks to chalky whites have a luxurious soft glow that adds instant sophistication and warmth to your home.

Doors Need Blinds Too

Windows get lots of attention when it comes to decorating. The list of solutions is varied and creative. But what about those doors which are often forgotten? Whether they are draughty glass vintage French doors or room height bi-fold doors, they have their own challenges and quirks. Luxaflex® has some great solutions for all the doors in your house.

Patio doors need both privacy and view transparency. Venetian blinds are an ideal choice for large patio doors if you like to pull them up out of the way in summer, or drop them low in the winter to add a wall of texture such as wood. Nano® Roller blinds for patio doors are also a durable and affordable option. They can be also be used with PowerView® motorisation for easy control.

      

Bi-fold doors are ideal with vertical blinds you can slide them completely out of the way when your windows are pushed all the way back, allowing for flow between internal and external spaces. If you want something in between completely closed or open, you can tilt the panels for gradual changes in natural lighting.

French doors can conjure up a traditional design aesthetic, but they don’t have to. Roller blinds for French doors can give you flexibility but also a modern edge, which allows you to play with the design and mix colour ways for a more dynamic look. If they are old and draughty or you just prefer a more classic feel, wooden blinds or faux wood shutters for French doors are a great choice, as they also hold in the warmth and reduce external noise.

Kitchen and conservatory doors need high traffic solutions. Wipe clean blinds are useful for sticky fingers in materials like wood or metal Venetian blinds. These are often also UPVC doors so you may want a no drill solution. UPVC door blinds that give you fuss-free maximum protection include our Trufit® blinds, which can be fixed perfectly into most frames and eradicate any annoying elements, such as window treatments rattling from doors being banged constantly.

Blinds for front doors often need to deliver discretion for added security. They can make the whole property seem cosier in the winter than if they are mainly glass; Duette® shades  are designed to keep the heat in during winter and out during the hot summer month.

Summer, Sunshine and Silhouette® Shades

After a long dark winter, we all long for the sun to come streaming through our windows, but sometimes there can be just too much of a good thing. Silhouette® Shades take the harshest sunlight and transforms it into beautiful natural light; all you have to do is tilt the vanes to enjoy more natural daylight. The vanes will diffuse and spread the light evenly throughout the room, filtering out brightness, glare and UV rays.

Luxaflex® Silhouette® Shades are also great when it comes to controlling your privacy – a view to the outside when open during the day and when completely closed in the evenings, you can enjoy your seclusion.

Silhouette® Shades are available in a wide range of beautiful fabrics and sophisticated on-trend colours. Each fabric has its own unique feel – with a choice of new silk looks, subtle linens -all designed to create subtly filtered light.

      

New to the range is: Promenade – a nature inspired fabric design with a soft, casual look, it is available in five soft tone colours.  Ombre – a stylish light dimming fabric designed to subdue light when needed it is available in seven colours.  Bayou – a fresh linen design with a warm look available in three saturated colours.
