Blackout Blinds have a reflective back coating, which enables you to create a total blackout environment anytime of the day. Perfect for kids' rooms or for anyone working shifts who needs a quality sleep environment during the day.

Duo Blackout Blinds
Effectively, Duo Blackout Blinds are a pair of blinds combined. So you have a blackout blind and a pleated blind all in one system. Use the blackout blind to remove the light from the room, then draw this back leaving a pleated blind to soften the sunlight entering your room. Ideal for kids' rooms; blackout the sunlight for naps, and leave the pleated blind in position for playtime without the intense glare of the sun.
Roller Blinds are both practical and stylish and are available in a huge range of colours and prints to suit any room scheme. They are a popular, budget friendly way to soften light coming in through your bedroom or extension roof window.
Venetian Blinds give your window a simple, clean and contemporary look. The ability to easily adjust the angle of the slats gives you complete control over the amount of light entering your room.
Add this popular blind to your VELUX roof window, or choose a pocket friendly multi-fit Venetian blind that will fit a range of roof window brands.
Ideal for when you want your window to look a little more ‘dressed’, Roman Blinds are an excellent way to soften your window, shading you from the light, rather than excluding it. They work particularly well if you use your roof space as a work from home office or living area.
Roman blinds are only available for VELUX windows*.
If you’re looking for a stylish way to produce a soft and diffused light into your room, then Pleated Blinds are the answer. They allow privacy without blocking out the light and can usually be set at different positions on the window, allowing optimum lighting flexibility.
An ingenious way to prevent your room overheating is Awning Blinds. The idea being that as they sit above your window, they stop strong sunlight and heat hitting your window pane full on. As awning blinds are fitted externally, you can still fit the blind of your choice on the inside.
External Roller shutters
Installed outside your window, Roller Shutters have a number of practical benefits; they allow you to accurately control the amount of incoming light, they give you protection from the elements and also provide you with the peace of mind of extra security. Roller shutters can be operated electronically or solar operated via remote control.
