Why Choose Blinds?

In the ever-evolving world of home décor, blinds stand out as a timeless choice for numerous reasons. Here’s why so many Cardiff and South West homeowners are opting for them:

  • Temperature Regulation: Blinds act as insulators, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Acting as insulators, they trap air between the window and the room, ensuring warmth during the chilly Cardiff winters and a refreshing cool during the summer. Over time, this energy efficiency can also reflect on your utility bills, offering savings.
  • Privacy Control: Adjust the blinds to the level you desire, ensuring the right balance of light and privacy. Depending on the time of day or your mood, easily adjust them to ensure optimal light without compromising on your privacy.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: A home’s atmosphere is largely influenced by its décor, and blinds add an element of sophistication. Their vast variety in design, materials, and colours ensures there’s something for every taste, be it modern minimalism or classic elegance.
  • UV Protection: Protect your furniture and flooring from harmful UV rays. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can damage your furniture, artworks, and flooring. Blinds act as a protective shield, filtering out the harmful effects of the sun while letting you enjoy its warmth.


Choosing the Perfect Blinds for Your Space

Selecting blinds is akin to picking out a piece of art – it requires thought, reflection, and a touch of inspiration. Here’s a guide to ensure your choice is both functional and beautiful:

  • Material Matters: Dive into the world of blind materials, each offering a unique feel. Wooden blinds exude a natural charm, making spaces feel warm and welcoming, while fabric blinds can add a touch of softness to a room. Consider the room’s moisture level, sunlight exposure, and overall aesthetic when making your choice.
  • Colour Coordination: Colour plays a pivotal role in setting the room’s mood. Neutral shades like beige or off-white offer versatility and blend seamlessly with most decors. However, if you’re looking to make a bold statement, vibrant shades can serve as an eye-catching focal point. Think about the ambiance you want to create and select accordingly.
  • Consider the Function: Each room in your home serves a different purpose, and your blinds should align with that. Blackout blinds are perfect for bedrooms, ensuring undisturbed sleep. For bathrooms, opt for water-resistant materials that can handle moisture. In living spaces, light-filtering blinds can set a serene mood, allowing just the right amount of sunlight to filter through.

By intertwining aesthetics with functionality, the perfect blinds not only elevate your home’s style but also enhance the quality of your living experience. At Solar Sunshades, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.


Measuring Your Window: A Quick Guide

Getting the right measurements for your window is pivotal. It’s the foundation upon which the fit and functionality of your blinds rest. Here’s a thorough guide to help you achieve accurate measurements:


Begin with a metal tape measure for accuracy. Cloth or plastic tapes can stretch or warp, leading to potential misreadings. Ensure your tape measure displays both centimetres and inches, catering to all manufacturer specifications.



  • Inside the Frame: Measure the inside width of the window frame at three points – top, middle, and bottom. This accounts for any slight variations in the window’s construction.
  • Consistency is Key: It might surprise you, but windows aren’t always perfectly square. Use the smallest of the three measurements. This ensures that your blinds won’t scrape against the sides or get stuck.


  • Vertical Dimensions: Measure the inside height of the window frame on the left, centre, and right side. This comprehensive approach ensures that you account for any potential discrepancies in the frame’s construction.
  • Optimal Length: Especially for blinds, the drop is essential. Use the longest of the three measurements to ensure adequate coverage, particularly for blackout or privacy blinds.
  • Depth: If considering inside-mount blinds, ensure there’s enough depth in the window frame to accommodate the mounting. Different blinds might require varying depths, so it’s always wise to check.


Tip: Always remember to double-check your measurements. A second reading can prevent potential issues down the line, ensuring that your blinds fit perfectly in their designated space.


Remember, yhe beauty of blinds lies in their precision. A millimetre too much or too little can disrupt their function. But don’t fret. If this seems daunting, Solar Sunshades is here to simplify the process. Our expert team is always on hand to measure, ensuring perfection in every fitting.
