Revamp your home with on-trend window treatments

Giving your home a refreshing new look doesn’t have to be the costly task we might imagine it to be. We know that a DIY paint makeover does wonders for creating a brighter, cleaner feel without punishing the plastic too badly. But when those freshly painted walls make our old window coverings look tired and dull, we’ve just created a new, more expensive, problem. Or have we?

As home design trends continue to favour sleek and sophisticated interior blinds for a space-enhancing aesthetic and fabulously practical benefits, the budget-conscious among us are quietly thanking our lucky stars. Ready-made blinds provide an easy DIY installation option and don’t have to max out the credit card.

Choose from the following popular styles ready-made to fit standard window sizes:

Roller blinds

Spotlight have a fantastic range of off-the-shelf roller blinds in trending colours, textures and designs to perfectly complement your chosen style. Able to provide that fashionable glossy magazine look, roller blinds provide a smooth and unfussy finish with distinct designer style. When fixed within the window cavity in blockout fabrics, roller blinds are an effective, energy-efficient solution for family homes. Spotlight roller blinds are available in sunscreen, day and night, sheer and blockout fabrics.

Roman blinds

Tasteful and elegant roman blinds have a cord threaded through them for a simple control system which creates stylish pleats when the blinds are raised. You can select four different widths with a 210cm drop and your ready-made kit includes all the fittings you need.

Venetian blinds

Spotlight venetian blinds

Classic, timeless venetians simply never date. Available in stylish slimline timber, aluminium, faux wood and PVC to suit a variety of décors, venetians are a simple way to enhance your windows and modernise your look while providing light-filtering and privacy features. If you love the luxurious appeal of plantation shutters but your budget doesn’t agree, ready-made venetian blinds provide a similar look for a much friendlier price tag. Available in a vast range of widths and drops.

Vertical blinds

The budget-friendly option for many homes, today’s modern vertical blinds are now equipped with individual weights, eliminating the need for those annoying chains linking the panels at the bottom. Check out Spotlight’s sleek and chic chainless verticals in a blockout polyester fabric. The perfect solution for sliding doors and large windows, vertical blinds also allow varying degrees of light and privacy control.

When choosing your colours opt for neutral fabrics and materials to quietly complement your interior design, match with your wall colour to blend and create a spaciousness effect, or select bold contrasting colours to make your window coverings a feature in the room.

As the final effect can be all about the details, your ready-made blinds can be completely accessorised with a wide range of brackets, chains, cords, chain guards and motorising accessories available, making this cost-effective method of revamping your home simple, effective and budget-friendly.
