Get ideas for your living room blinds. We have hundreds of blinds to choose from in a wide range of colours, designs and fabrics. Let us show you some of the best blinds for living room schemes.

Whether you’re looking for a blind for a bay window, sash window, patio door or standard window, we’ve got the perfect blind for you. Read our top tips on finding the right blind for your window shape, whatever the style of your living room.  

Cosy and welcoming
Your living room is the place you go to sit, relax and socialise, so it’s important that it feels warm and inviting. Roman blinds are a great choice for living rooms, as they are available in a broad range of fabrics, textures and designs to suit every style of décor. They can be teamed with curtains for a layered look and come with optional thermal linings for a warmer feel.

Contemporary flair
There was a time when the options for Venetian blinds were pretty limited. But no more. A Venetian blind is a fantastic choice for a contemporary living room where you want a sleek and glossy finish. Choose a vibrant red to add an edge to a neutral scheme, or go for a pearlised finish for a soft, romantic look. Metallics in shades of gold, copper and bronze are really big just now and our aluwood range is a glossy alternative to traditional wooden blinds.

Practically perfect 
For large windows, bay windows and doors, a Vertical blind is an excellent option. It allows you to effectively control the light while maintaining your privacy, which is important if your living room is overlooked. Our latest range includes lots of contemporary designs and prints to help you create the look you want. Vertical blinds can be made to neatly follow the curve of a bay window and are available in a range of performance fabrics.

Pleat and tidy
For an alternative to Roman blinds, consider a Pleated blind. It gives you the same softness at the window, but also filters the light beautifully, swathing your living room in a warm, golden glow. Or choose one of our Thermashade Pleated blinds. These have a honeycomb cell which traps heat and stops it escaping, improving the insulating properties of your window. This is a must-have option if your property does not have double glazing.

Neat and sleek
A Roller blind looks pristine at the window, sitting neatly within the recess and allowing sunlight to flood into your living room. Choose from a range of fabulous fabrics and textures, including blackout fabrics for added light control. Roller blinds are also easy to customise. Choose a shaped hem for a softer look and include poles and finials for a café style feel.
