The Best Bedroom Blinds

What to consider when choosing bedroom blinds for your home

Not sure where to start your search for new bedroom blinds? We've put together a list of our top recommendations!

There's a lot to consider when choosing indoor blinds for your home, particularly for a bedroom. Here are a few things to think about when narrowing down your options:

  1. How much privacy do you need?

  2. Is your room street-facing, or is it a bit more hidden?

  3. Do you need the blockout window coverings or just light filtering?

  4. Are you a light sleeper, shift worker or have a baby? Maybe a blockout blind is best.

  5. Do you want a slatted or fabric blind?

Light filtering vs blackout blinds for your bedroom

There are two types of blinds to choose from when determining the amount of light control you're after. Your options are either a light filtering or a blockout blind.

Light filtering blinds reduce the amount of incoming light into your bedroom, but it won't block it out completely like a blackout blind will.

What are the best bedroom blinds?

Double roller blinds

Double roller blinds are a unique blind system, made up of two pieces of fabric for optimal light filtration and blockout opportunities! Typically, people choose to have a blockout and a sunscreen fabric combination to ensure they have the flexibility to have both needs met in one blind.

These blinds are perfect for bedrooms as you can raise one of the pieces of fabric to transition from blackout to filtering, and you'll still have plenty of light when needed.

Panel blinds

Panel blinds are similar to a vertical blind, however their vertically-hanging slats are much wider and look a bit more elegant.

If your bedroom has a sliding door to the backyard, panel blinds are also a perfect option for your doorway! As they're designed to slide along a track, they can easily be moved out of the way and won't restrict door access.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are a very affordable and versatile blind option, especially for bedrooms!

Verticals provide plenty of privacy without compromising on light, as the slats can be angled to suit your needs.

Vision blinds

Vision blinds (also known as day and night blinds) offer more of a unique finish to your space, while still providing plenty of light control and privacy!

These blinds are made up of horizontal slats of alternating translucent (semi see through) and opaque fabric, giving you flexible lighting during the day or night.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds are a simple, yet very effective bedroom blind!

They're made up of thin, horizontal slats, which means they easily direct the light where you want it to be angled. This is similar to verticals, except the slats are smaller, so you have a bit more control.

The main benefit of Venetians is that they are available in aluminium, timber, Woodlux, and timber-look. Each option is suitable for a different room in your home, so if you like the idea of having one consistent window covering throughout every room, Venetians are perfect for you!

For your bedroom and other rooms like an office or living room, any of the options are suitable. If you're deciding on which blind is right for a wet area such as a kitchen, bathroom or laundry, timber-look and aluminium are much more durable options for the humidity and ease of cleaning.

Indoor plantation shutters

If you're still unsure about the best bedroom blind, maybe plantation shutters are more your style!

Shutters add elegance to your space, and are very effective in balancing both light filtering and blockout. They are similar to a Venetian blind in terms of design, however they offer a more upmarket look.

They are also thought to be a great way to boost the value of your home as many people want to have window shutters.
