Where to use these combinations?

Are combined curtains and blinds suitable for all doors and windows in your home? Ideally, they should be used in balcony doors and large windowsespecially in living rooms or bedrooms.

If you have a small roomIf you use blinds, it is best to use only blinds, as they give a minimalist look and don't take up as much space as curtains.

Ideas for the use of combined curtains and blinds

Here we bring you some ideas that can help you to choose the best combination of curtains and blinds:

  • Roller blind curtainsThe second product allows the light to pass through, while the curtain prevents it; in this way, you can regulate the entry of the sun's rays at all times. This option gives a cosy feeling to the room; in addition, the pocket blinds, or pleated blinds, can leave small spaces through which light can enter, so that with the curtain you can achieve the total darkness you desire.
  • Blackout blinds and linen curtainsIf you like curtains with net curtains or linen fabrics, you should be aware that light comes in constantly, whether or not the curtain is closed; in this case, it is essential that you have a opaque roller blindwhich blocks the passage of light. In addition, this combination provides insulation from outside temperatures and draughts, and it is also important to note that this fusion gives a traditional feel and a more elegant look to any room.
  • Wooden curtains and blindsIf you want a more rustic look for the bedroom, ideally combine a mat blind with a blind in a wooden finish; in this case, we recommend using a curtain in a bright colour, such as green or brown.
  • Screen curtains and blinds: the screen blinds are made of fabric, which provides a clearer view; in addition, their slanted operation allows the light to be adjusted. In this case, it is best to fix the blackout curtains at the top, to achieve greater darkness when you need it.
  • Curtains and roller blindsThe perfect combination for shallow windows or rooms where you want a more elegant look, it is best to use solid tones for blinds and go for printed curtains, or the other way around.

  • ColoursA good option is to use a white or ecru colour for the curtains and a neutral or dominant shade for the blind.
  • Plain fabricsIn this case, it is best to opt for a flowing curtain and a thicker blind. Ideally, the curtain should be an earthy colour and the blind should be white, as this gives the room greater elegance and warmth.
  • Combines print and stripesThe most daring people should keep in mind that the room should be as minimalist and neutral as possible, as the existence of so many ornaments and predominant colours could overload the space.
  • The importance of decorative galleries and bannersThere are aluminium complements, ideal for more modern rooms, and others made of wood, which are highly recommended for a more rustic touch in your living room or bedroom.
  • Classic styleIf you want to maintain the classic atmosphere of your room, it is best to opt for a curtain with a classic fabric and a white blind; in addition, you should attach the curtain with the tiebacks, which should be made of the same fabric.
  • BarThe best way is to anchor it to the ceiling, so that the blind guides are hidden and a more harmonious feel is achieved.
