Most people think of venetian blinds when they talk about interior and blinds. This is also for a good reason. This option is very popular for the living room. Venetian blinds provide a modern and spacious look. The daylight and sunlight entering the living room is easily filtered through the horizontal slats. So you always create the desired amount of light. This form of window decoration is again available in different sizes and types of material. For example: Wood, aluminum and plastic. The wooden blinds are often chosen by people who are looking for a natural and warm look in their living room. They are good to combine with a country or modern living room. However, aluminum blinds are very sleek and timeless, they fit well with an industrial living room.
This type of blinds is currently a huge trend in the window decoration world. Each window in the living room is beautiful with a honeycomb blind. Honeycomb blinds are established in France and have their name from the word ''plissé'', which in French means pleated. A pleated blind therefore has a folded fabric. Pleated blinds are also available in two different types. A pleated curtain with two fabric layers is also called honeycomb fabric. This fabric also has an energy-saving and a sound-deadening effect. These are two huge advantages. For example, the pleated blinds with a double fabric are also ideal for large windows because the double fabric prevents cold drafts. You can also open honeycomb blinds from the top, allowing a lot of natural light in but also maintaining the desired privacy. Honeycomb blinds from Smartblinds are available in 3 different fabric transparencies, and will soon be available in the United Kingdom.
