The best blinds for the transition into autumn

It might be September, but that doesn’t mean it’s dark and dismal already. We’ll show you how blinds can help you use spaces such as conservatories or glass extensions for as long as possible, as well as allowing as much light as possible into our homes while still being practical. Take a look at our top tips, or scroll down to the bottom for a bite-sized summary.

Choose a louvre

Lots of us want something at the window for privacy reasons. Picking a blind with a louvre is a fantastic way to invite more light into your home, even if you’re overlooked. Vertical and Venetian blinds are really practical, and will let you keep peeping eyes out.

Pink Vertical blinds

Our Tree Blossom Vertical blind allows you privacy control in your home, but will fold up neatly when you want to let the light in.

Perfect Fit

Perfect Fit blinds are such a clever choice for conservatories. They simply clip into your uPVC window frames, which removes the need to drill into any window frames, or mess about with DIY.

Another great feature is that they pull right up to the top of the window, folding up really neatly. This means when the sun is blazing, you can pull them up to the top and let the light stream in.

Green Perfect Fit blinds

Perfect Fit blinds are oh-so-clever, and perfect for rooms such as conservatories which have a lot of windows. They won’t swamp the panes, but instead make a feature of them!

Ecopleat Pleated blinds

To make your space comfortable all-year-round, we recommend our Ecopleat range. The blinds feature an innovative honeycomb structure to help trap the heat in notoriously chilly places like conservatories, or old draughty windows.

They’ll also work really well when summer comes back around, helping to keep the sometimes oppressive sun out of places like conservatories and glass extensions. And best of all, they’re also available in our Perfect Fit range.

Orange Pleated blinds

Our Ecopleat Tangerine Pleated blind is zesty and clever – it will help keep your space temperate all year round.


We’re finding more and more of our customers are choosing to layer blinds at the window – choosing to layer a blind with slats with a Roman or Roller blind, for example, is a great way to get a look that’s practical all year round.

Tilt your slats to let the light stream in, or pull a Roman blind down when the nights get darker for a cosy look.

Green Venetian blind

Our Putting Green Venetian blind could be layered with a Roman blind for an extra cosy feel.
