Whether you're looking to darken a bedroom, provide sun protection in a conservatory or add privacy to a bathroom, Luxaflex has a practical, stylish and lasting solution in a choice of designs, colours, textures and materials.

Luxaflex blinds are truly ‘one of a kind’ as they are always made to measure.

One of the most crucial and adjustable elements in creating the perfect atmosphere in your home is light, and where windows provide light, there is always a need to control it. Luxaflex window coverings offer you a large selection of choices for dressing your windows, with a wide range of styles, colours, textures, fabrics, materials and finishes.

If you choose fabric blinds then you have the option to choose your material to make the blinds from, and here’s where the gorgeous range of Luxaflex fabrics makes choosing a window fashion easy. In fact Luxaflex has one of the most extensive fabric ranges of any blinds manufacturer in theUK, with over 300 designs to choose from.

First think about the level of screening your room will need in order to choose from the various levels of opacities - Sunscreen, Sheer, Translucent or Blockout fabric:

  • Sunscreen fabrics allow for the control of heat and light whilst maintaining your view. Both technically and aesthetically unique with their subtle design, Sunscreens are perfect for any room heavily exposed to the sun to reduce glare and heat.
  • Sheer fabrics give daytime privacy but no privacy at night when all the lights are on inside the room. Sheer and translucent fabrics are often layered with blockout fabrics to give full privacy for day and night.
  • Translucent fabrics screen out harsh light and bring texture or pattern to light coming into a room while providing daytime privacy. Translucent fabrics provide mid level range of solar optical and energy comfort within the home.
  • Blockout fabrics offer the ultimate level of privacy, day and night whilst helping to insulate the room. By adjusting the blind to suit your lighting requirements, blockout fabrics offer room darkening capabilities which are optimal for rooms where light control is paramount.

Once you’ve decided on this important point, it’s time to think about colours and patterns.

Colours help establish the mood and feel of a room, and when used correctly can create a lasting impression. Using neutrals or lighter colours will give an impression of spaciousness; where as darker colours can make a big room feel more intimate. Warmer colours have the ability make a room more cheerful whilst cool colours are more relaxing and create a soothing environment.

Consider the effect that you are trying to achieve before choosing your window fashions colour scheme; choosing the right texture or pattern can often be as important as the colour. The texture and pattern of the fabric can create interest and variety to a room which will add depth and contrast. The texture can be smooth, rough, soft, velvety, silky or lustrous, whilst bold patterns can add character and flair to an interior without overpowering the existing décor.

The diverse range of Luxaflex fabrics includes a range of textures and patterns in different opacities designed to perfectly suit any space.
