We all have different personal tastes when it comes to colour. Here at Appeal Home Shading, we’ve got decades of experience helping people design their perfect blinds and picking the right colour is a big part of that. There is a stereotype that all window blinds are white, but this isn’t the case. There’s a wide range of colours available and occasionally, the choice can be overwhelming.

There are a couple of things to bear in mind, so without further ado, here’s how to choose a colour for your new window blinds.

Matching The Existing Colour Scheme

The first thing to consider is what other colours the blinds are going to be placed alongside. Your installation will not exist in isolation; it will be in a room with an existing colour scheme. You won’t want them clashing with the furniture, wallpaper, or carpet, but at the same time, too much of a single colour can be a mistake. 

Similarly, if you already have blinds in other rooms, do you want your new ones to match them? There are benefits to having a uniform colour scheme for all your blinds, but it is tricky to pull off. The rooms of your house don’t all have the same purpose, and what’s great in the dining room might be hideous in the conservatory.

When deciding on a blind colour, it can help to think of how best to complement the existing decor. For instance, blue and orange are a classic pairing and are widely used in logos, especially in sports teams. Yellow adds a degree of warmth when used alongside white or cream, and you can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned black-and-white scheme.

What’s Fashionable?

It’s also worth looking into what colours are popular when designing your blinds. In the past few months, we’ve noticed an increased interest in colours that recall nature and the outside world. For example, Wild Wonder, the Dulux Colour of the Year for 2023 is currently doing very well. It has a certain uplifting vibe that brings to mind the great outdoors. 

For homeowners in coastal regions, blue has always been a popular choice. Light greens are often used in riverside properties, while Viva Magenta, the Pantone Colour of the Year is doing well in rural areas. It’s a bright, vibrant colour with the optimism of springtime flowers and can make a room come to life.
