The Best Blinds For The Bedroom
The bedroom is the most personal room in your home. It should reflect your style and be a comfortable space you look forward to coming home to every day. It should make you feel safe and relaxed. As a place for sleeping, your bedroom should be your own little sanctuary, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. One of the best ways to make your bedroom a restful place is buy hanging quality blinds on your windows. The best bedroom blinds will not only make your bedroom feel more inviting but will also keep it a comfortable temperature and keep it private and dark, which makes it easier to enjoy a night of restful, undisrupted sleep.
There are many different types of blinds on the market, so it can be difficult to figure out what type of blinds are best for bedrooms. Generally, the best blinds for bedroom windows are those that complement your room’s décor, whilst also having light-blocking properties.
Check out our guide below on some of the best blinds for the bedroom, and how to select the right option for your space.
The best blinds for bedroom windows
Classic, streamlined roller blinds are the perfect choice for the bedroom. Contemporary and practical, roller blinds are available in a wide range of fabrics, colours and textures and can be easily designed to fit in with your existing bedroom décor. Better yet, roller blinds can be customised and installed to fit snugly against your window recess, helping to prevent light from seeping in during the night and making them some of the best bedroom blinds on the market. At The Blinds Gallery, we offer a huge selection of blockout roller blinds which are ideal for the bedroom because they are designed to block out the sun – if you want to keep your bedroom darker in the morning then this is the perfect choice. If you want the option to allow the light to filter in during the day, then a double roller with blockout fabrics and translucent fabric is a great option to get the best of both worlds. If you want to increase the convenience of your bedroom blinds, there are motorisation options available which make it possible to control the level of light and privacy in your room at just the touch of a button.
If you’re wondering what blinds are best for bedrooms, then it really doesn’t get much better (or more modern) than cellular blinds. Cellular blinds are the latest innovation in blinds technology and are perfect for the bedroom because they offer exceptional insulation properties. Cellular blinds use a honeycomb structure to trap heat, which helps to keep your bedroom cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They honeycomb structure is unique and attractive and provides impressive depth and control to the bedroom. The horizontally pleated blinds come in a range of colours, textures and fabrics, including light-filtering fabrics. There are also a range of control systems available for cellular blinds including; mono cord control, cordless, automated and motorised control systems.

If you love a superior finish and you’re looking for impressive light, airflow and privacy control then shutters are the perfect choice for the bedroom. Choose from warm timbers, eco PVC or contemporary aluminium shutters for your space. Shutters are excellent insulators, highly durable and easy to maintain. Available in a range of colours they’re a perfect, classic option and the perfect finish to any bedroom. At The Blinds Gallery, we offer fixed, hinged, bi-folding and sliding shutters and a choice of slat sizes, including 51mm, 64mm, 76mm, 89mm and 114mm slat sizes.
If you’re asking the question ‘what are the best blinds for the bedroom’ then you might have forgotten to think outside the box – in other words, you might not have considered curtains and drapes for your windows! Curtains make an excellent alternative to blinds, or a stylish complement to them. Curtains give you the flexibility to easily change the look of your bedroom, and come in a huge range of colours, fabrics, prints and styles. Like blinds, curtains can be customised with light-filtering fabrics to block out light in the bedroom. If you want to add a touch of luxe to your bedroom, then consider adding some high quality curtains to your space.
Deciding on the best blinds for your bedroom
There are a few things you should think about and a few questions you should ask yourself before choosing new blinds.
How much sun does your bedroom receive?
If your bedroom receives a lot of sunlight, then light-blocking fabrics with insulation properties should be at the top of your list. Rooms that get a lot of sun exposure throughout the day can be difficult to sleep in, and your bedroom furniture will be more prone to fading because of UV exposure.
What are the sizes and shapes of your windows?
Does your bedroom have multiple windows? Are they all uniform in size and shape or do you have unique windows like bay windows? Different types of blinds are more suitable for different windows. If you have particularly large windows for instance you may want to consider light window coverings, like roller blinds or for unusually shaped windows you may want to consider a mix of blinds and drapes. At The Blinds Gallery we can custom make blinds to suit your windows from a range of fabrics and materials.
Are your windows facing the street?
If privacy is a concern, then opt for fabric blinds that use opaque, lined fabrics instead of sheer or semi-opaque fabrics or choose shutters, which offer a great deal of control over both privacy and light. If you’d prefer to maintain your view outside, but want to keep your bedroom private then sunscreen fabrics are an excellent option as they limit the view inside but allow you to see out.

I have just had the guys leave from the installation of my new curtains. I couldn’t jump on here quick enough and let you know what an amazing experience we have had and they look fantastic!
Right from the moment of meeting you Ferne, helping pick out the curtains and being patient with the decision making of two girls who can’t make up their mind, to the two men who came to install them. They were amazing, there was no mess left, they were polite and did such a great job at the install.
We will definitely be back to finish the rest of the house soon!
Thank you again!

I would just like to say what wonderful customer service Michelle gave me when I came into the display showroom. I had a good idea of what I wanted but Michelle made suggestions and recommendations and showed me products I wasn't familiar with.

Just to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the quoting, measuring, manufacture and instillation of internal shutters. We had a few hiccoughs upstairs but these problems were addressed and resolved. Downstairs went like clockwork. Manufacturing time was much less and instillation was quick, clean and efficient thanks to Lee and Say who were like a well oiled machine. Great teamwork. Absolutely love the product and due to the efficiencies and the manner in which problems were handled, I would have no hesitation in recommending The Blinds Gallery.
