Polyester roller blinds for the kitchen
Kitchens can be a messy place, stains, spillages and splats are common place in the kitchen, so in the kitchen you need to have a hardy kitchen blind that can deal with all the day to day wear and tear that comes in a kitchen. A roller blind made from polyester will be excellent for the kitchen, as most polyester blinds such as DotcomBlinds Palermo range are easy to wipe clean and have an anti-bacterial coating which make them ideal for the kitchen.
PVC roller blinds in the bathroom
Much like how the kitchen is prone to stains, your bathroom will be prone to being wet and steamy, so you need a blind in your bathroom that can deal with being in a wet environment, straight away that means no to many fabric, wood or metal blinds that would be damaged by the constant moisture. But a PVC roller blind such as one from Dotcom’s Toscana range is perfect for the bathroom as it is moisture resistant, wipe clean and has an anti-bacterial coating, which is perfect for a bathroom environment.
Roman blinds for the living room (small to medium windows)
If you have small to medium-sized windows in your front room, Roman blinds are an excellent choice. They look stylish in almost any setting and can be made in thick blackout material to allow them to completely cut out light from outside, making them perfect for movie nights.
Vertical blinds for the living room (bid windows)
If you have bigger blinds in your living room (wider than 250cm) vertical blinds are a good option for you. Verticals look stylish and can be rotated to allow as much (or as little) light as you want into the room and can be drawn sideways much like a set of curtains. They are also available in blackout variants to help cut out the light when watching television.
