There is also a loss of heat and energy in the cooler months. VELUX Window Blinds add the perfect finishing touch to your living space and can have many benefits. Window blinds, unlike curtains, also provide you with greater control for light you would like, and the privacy you would like in your rooms.

A blind can also be open or shut to the precise place you want. It is very easy to use, and many are operated either manually or electronically. Window blinds come in a range of colours, patterns, and styles. They are the perfect covering for many windows.

There are several different types of blinds to choose from, such as blackout blinds, roman blinds, vertical blinds, mini blinds and cordless blinds which are great for homes with pets and young children.

So whether you are looking to liven up a room, increase your privacy, reduce the sunlight, or blackout a room there is a Velux blind that would be best suited for your needs.
