Why Choose Blackout Blinds?

Right Price Blinds
If you’re considering purchasing new blinds, or simply sick of being woken up early these bright mornings, you should really consider the benefits of blackout blinds.

In the past, blackout blinds were often considered unfashionable and available only in plain bland colours. Not anymore, here are Right Price Blinds we stock a wide variety of colours and textured material for blackout blinds.

The wide range of colours and styles now available mean that more people are choosing blackout blinds for throughout the house. Blackout blinds have the benefit of not only blocking out light but also protecting against harmful UV rays that can discolour furniture and floors. This makes them ideal for T.V. rooms and conservatories.

We can supply blackout material in roller blinds, cassette blinds, vertical blinds, pleated blinds and Velux blinds, ensuring blackout protection to every window in your home. All our unique rubber-based blackout material is produced in our factory, with over 30 years of blinds making experience.

So whether you’re a shift worker, or a tired parent looking to entice your toddler into post-sunrise wake ups, our blackout blinds are the perfect stylish solution for your home.

Top Window Dressing Trends for 2016

Looking for a fresh and new style in your home?

Window dressing is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to update your home

Window dressing is one of the most easiest and fastest ways to update your rooms – and won’t break the bank!

This year’s interiors are all about a chic modern look, and what better way to achieve that than with some stylish new blinds.  Here are our top tips to achieve the look:Keep it Simple

Keep it Simple

Less is more when it comes to choosing your window dressing.  Use clean and simple lines to enhance the space available and avoid a cluttered look.  Cassette Blinds and Vertical Panel Blinds are an ideal solution for achieving the simplistic look, while still offering privacy and maximum light.

Use Patterns Wisely

Use texture and tone to create warmth in a room rather than cluttering things up with too many complex patterns. That doesn’t mean you need to avoid bold designs, but try to choose colours that will compliment the window view all year around.  Roller Blinds  are ideal for adding some pattern to a colour scheme.

Venetian Blinds – Wooden or Aluminium?

Venetian blinds are one of the most versatile options for your windows.  Whether your window is large or small, Venetian blinds offer a stylish finish.   They have the added bonus of being easy to clean and maintain, as well as being very hard-wearing.  

The question we are often asked though, is which is best – wooden or aluminium?

The choice is, of course, mostly down to personal taste – while cost is often a factor too.  Here at right price blinds we source our aluminium Venetian blinds in bulk from Eastern Europe, allowing us to sell them to you at one of the most competitive prices in the market.

But if you’re lucky enough that cost isn’t a factor, here are some pros and cons of both styles to help you make up your mind.

Advantages of Wooden Venetian blinds:

Classy and timeless addition to any room

Creates a warm ambiance

Good blockage of UV rays and sun

Disadvantages of Wooden Venetian blinds:

Price.  Generally one of the most expensive blinds option

Colours can be limited

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Advantages of Aluminium Venetian blinds:

Price.  Very economical

Extremely hard wearing and durable

Available in an array of colours

Good blockage of UV rays and sun

Disadvantages of Aluminium Venetian blinds:

The metal can be a conductor of heat/cold

Handy tips on how to clean your blinds

Over the years, one of the most frequent questions we have been asked here at Right Price Blinds is ‘What’s the best way to clean blinds?’  

We’d love to tell you there’s some magic formula, but unfortunately a little elbow grease is required.  Hopefully, our tips will ease the pain slightly though and help keep your windows looking great!


Roller Blinds

The best way to clean rollers is with a soft brush head on your hoover.  Gently give them a hoover down.  Use a well wrung out cloth or sponge, dipped in a mild detergent, to gently wipe down the fabric and remove any stains.  If blinds are especially grubby, take them down and soak them in a bath with lukewarm water and a mild detergent.  Dry blinds fully before re-rolling.

Venetian Blinds

Gently dust slats with a soft dusting cloth or glove, tilting the slats in alternative directions as you go.  If blinds are especially dirty, use a well rung out microfibre cloth and warm water to wipe down the slats.  Open them out and allow to dry.

Vertical Blinds

Treat in much the same way as roller blinds – gentle hoover and a well wrung out cloth if especially dirty.  Most vertical blinds can also be removed from the track – altogether or individually – and soaked in a bath if heavily stained.  Allow to fully dry before closing.

Roman Binds

Roman blinds can also be gently dusted using a hoover on a very low speed, or a hand held vacuum.  Small stains can be tackled using a well wrung out cloth or sponge, using a mild detergent and lukewarm water.  If the blinds are very dirty, dry cleaning might be the best option.

Give your blinds a good clean two to three times a year to keep them looking fresh.  

Hope these tips help!
