Colours To Refresh Your Home For Summer

Jun 18 2021

The warm weather is finally here and we absolutely love it. With many of us still not being able to travel abroad, now is a perfect time for home renovations. Window blinds are an easy way to introduce a splash of interesting colour or pattern that will instantly change the look of the whole room. From monochromatic white coverings to bold statement pieces, in today’s post, we will feature some of our favourite window blinds that will bring a summer feel to your home.

1. White

White is one of the most versatile colours that instantly brighten up any space. It is a popular choice for window coverings as it suits various rooms of the house and looks amazing against different wall colours. Investing in a white blind is a great choice as white will never go out of style and will look amazing even if you ever decide to repaint your walls.

All-white interiors have been a huge trend over the past few years. To add a summer feel to monochromatic space, try to introduce different textures and colours to make the room more interesting and cosy. Day and night blinds are a perfect blind type to do that as their unique texture will add interest and dimension to your space. For example, our Turin Alabaster Vision Blind will look amazing in modern interiors and the white colour of this blind will blend into your interior. The unique design of the day and night blind will gently filter the sunlight while also giving you some privacy.

To finish off the look add colourful soft furnishings such as cushions or throws to enrich the space. Check out our wide range of high-quality cushions that will liven up any room. Available in a wide fabric selection, you can perfectly match cushions to a roman blind.

Our white roller blinds such as Palette White will bring an airy feel to your room and look amazing in plain, monochromatic interiors.

Some customers assume that white window coverings won’t be fully blackout due to the light colour of the fabric. However, the colour of the fabric doesn't influence the blackout features of a blind. All of our blackout blinds have a special coating on the rear of the fabric, that stops the sunlight from coming through the fabric. Check out our Banlight Duo range, available in a range of light, vibrant and dark colours to match your style. This fabric range is also flame retardant and moisture-resistant.

2. Pastels

Pastel shades are great to add a delicate pop of colour to your interior. They are known to bring a calmness and a relaxing feel to the room. Powder pink, subtle greens and light blues, will all look amazing in neutral interiors. At Your Blinds Direct, we have a beautiful range of pastel blinds. From Roman Blinds, Venetian Blinds to Vertical Blinds. Order up to 8 free fabric samples to find the right blind type and shade for you.

Our Chia Rose roman blind will add a feminine touch to your interior. The subtle pink colour of a blind along with a delicate pattern will create a cosy atmosphere in your room. You can always add some matching cushions to complete the look.

Our Banlight Duo FR Pink roller blind will look amazing in a stark modern kitchen. The fabric will liven up your room and bring a fresh feel to your space. Our Banlight Duo FR range is suitable for windows placed in the kitchen and bathroom as the fabric is easy to clean, moisture-resistant and fire retardent. If you see any fabrics that contain the word 'Duo' this denotes that the blackout backing is coloured instead of white, which gives your blind an extra dimension of colour.Pink roller blind in the kitchen

Pastel colours are also great for decorating nurseries. Check out our collection of Disney Blinds for unique patterns, featuring some of your favourite movie characters. Available in a range of neutral and pastel shades, those blinds are a great statement piece in any room. All of our children roller blinds can be easily motorised for a complete child safe solution.

3. Green

 Green is the colour of nature that is associated with life and energy. In interior design, green brings balance and harmony to the room. Pop of green can instantly add a touch of summer to your house. Green blinds will look amazing in neutral and white interiors. From olive colour to vibrant lime shade, there are many fabrics that you can choose from. Green accents are great for adding fresh colour and will look amazing near plants around the house.

Green Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are an affordable and stylish solution for patio doors and wide windows. This blind type provides you with great light and privacy control. At Your Blinds Direct, we have many green vertical blinds that will bring an earthy feel to your space. Check out our Palette Green, Polaris Emerald or Banlight Duo FR Lime for beautiful shades of green.

4. Blue and white

Summer weather instantly reminds us of a beautiful blue sky and ocean waves. In interior design, blue is known as a colour that brings calmness and serenity to the interior. Bold blue paired with white colour is popular in nautical or coastal design. It's a perfect look for a home by the sea or if you want to add a relaxing feel to your space. Striped patterns are popular in seaside style so the blind types that we would especially recommend are day and night blinds and faux wood blinds.

Faux wood blinds are a great blind type to be placed in the kitchen and bathroom as they are water resistant and durable. Available in a range of neutral colours, they will look amazing when placed against a blue wall.

If you are looking for a window covering with a bit more flexible light control, check out our senses mirage blinds. They will look amazing in beach house inspired interiors.
