    Frequently Asked Questions About Black Blinds

     

    What are the best type of black blinds?

    Honeycomb cellular pleated perfect fit blinds in the black fabric are the best type of black blinds. These install directly to the glass. If the fabric is also made from a blackout material, this can greatly reduce the problem of light seepage.

     

    Do black blinds make a room darker?

    The colour of a blind does not in itself make a room darker. If installed properly and made from a dense, black out material, black shades will block out the light in the room. No blind or shade will ever be able to completely eliminate all light from a room. You should expect daylight to peek through the sides of your shades during the day. 


    Can you see through black blinds from outside?

    The colour of a blind does not in itself influence privacy. For example, an open weave fabric regardless of colour will allow transfer of light and therefore be more transparent. For a black blind to provide privacy, it must have a dense or closed weave. A black blind with a dense or closed weave fabric will be opaque and prevent outsiders from peering inside, both at night and during the day. Such black blinds will keep items hidden from view at night, as they will reduce any light coming in.
     

    Is it true that black blinds make a room hotter?

    Black blinds absorb the majority of the energy in sunlight rather than reflecting it or allowing it to be transmitted directly into the room. This means that the fabric itself will become warmer, which will in turn cause it to radiate heat. This absorbancy also prevents heat from escaping as quickly as a blind of a lighter colour. The temperature of the space may then be increased or prevented from lowering as quickly as it otherwise would.


    Do dark blinds make a room look smaller?

    We advise adopting dark colours in rooms with large windows since they have the potential to absorb all available light making a small room look even smaller. 
     

    Can black blinds fade over time, and how can I prevent this from happening?

    Some lower-quality or lower-cost black blinds may fade over time if they are exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods. To prevent this from happening, it is recommended to use blinds made from high-quality colour-fast materials that are specifically designed to resist fading.

     

    Are there any specific cleaning techniques I should use for black blinds to avoid damaging them?

    When cleaning black blinds, it is important to use gentle and non-abrasive cleaning techniques to avoid damaging the finish or color. You can use a soft cloth or duster to remove dust and debris from the blinds, and a mild detergent and water solution for more stubborn stains or dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. Please note: you should always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific cleaning recommendations relating to your fabric.

     

    What are the best ways to incorporate black blinds into a minimalist or monochrome decor scheme?

    Black blinds can be a great addition to a minimalist or monochrome decor scheme as they add contrast and depth to the space. To incorporate black blinds into this type of design, it is recommended to pair them with neutral-colored walls and furniture. You can also use black accents throughout the space, such as black picture frames or decorative objects, to create a cohesive and balanced look.


    Are there any downsides to using black blinds, such as reduced energy efficiency or increased heating from sunlight absorption?

    Black blinds can absorb more sunlight than lighter-colored blinds, which can lead to comparatively higher heat build-up and reduced energy efficiency. However, it’s important to note that the presence of any blind at a window regardless of colour provides a degree of insulation from solar gain. Heat build-up can be mitigated by using blinds made from materials that are specifically designed to reflect heat and reduce energy consumption. You may also wish to choose a black blind with a white backing.

     

    What types of window coverings work well with black blinds, such as curtains or valances?

    Black blinds work well when paired with a variety of other window coverings, such as sheer curtains, patterned drapes, or even trims such as valances. The key is to choose window coverings that complement the style and color of your black blinds while also providing additional light control and privacy.


    What are some design tips for using black blinds in small spaces to create the illusion of a larger room?

    To create the illusion of a larger room using black blinds in a small space, it is recommended to pair them with light-colored walls and furniture. This will create contrast and depth, making the space appear larger. Additionally, using mirrors and other reflective surfaces can help bounce light around the room, making it feel more spacious. Finally, choosing blinds with a slim profile or narrow slats can help make the window appear larger, creating the illusion of more space.
     

    What are the small velux roof windows?

    The smallest Velux roof windows are the CK01, CK02, CK04, and CK06. These windows are all 55 cm wide and have a variety of heights, from 70 cm to 118 cm. These windows are a good option for small rooms, such as bathrooms and attics. They are also a good option for people who want to save space.
     

    What is the cost of perfect fit blinds?

    The cost of perfect fit blinds will vary depending on the size of your windows, the type of blind you choose, and the fabrics used. However, you can expect to pay anywhere from £50 to £500 for a set of perfect fit blinds.
     

    Can I use black blinds on a skylight?

    Yes, you can use black blinds on a skylight. Black blinds are available in a variety of fabrics, including light filtering dimout fabrics and blackout fabrics that will block out all light. This can be helpful if you want to sleep in a dark room or if you want to reduce the amount of heat that comes through your skylight.
     

    Can I get black window blinds without drilling?

    Yes, you can get black window blinds without drilling. There are a few different types of window blinds that can be installed without drilling, including Perfect or INTU blinds which come in a variety of blind types including venetian, pleated, roller or wooden blinds. The type of window blind that is best for you will depend on the size and shape of your windows as well as your personal preferences. Each blind type is available in a range of fabric colours including, of course, black.
     

    Can customers get 250cm wide blinds in black?

    Yes, we offer a wide range of black blinds, including roller blinds, metal Venetian blinds and pleated blinds that can all be made 250 cm wide. To order 250 cm wide blinds, customers simply need to enter their measurements into Newblinds' online quote tool.
     

    Are black blinds good for flat roof skylight blinds?

    Black blinds can be a good option for flat roof skylights, as they can help reduce heat gain and glare. Black is a dark colour that absorbs light, so it can help keep your home cooler in the summer. However, it is not necessary to select black to make the room dark we have a number of blackout blinds in various colours which are designed to make the room dark stopping the light from passing through which may fit in with the room decor better.
     

    Are your black blinds suitable for all window types, including Velux ones?

    No, not all blinds are suitable for Velux windows however we have a black roller for Velux windows available. All of our fabrics for the Velux are Blackout so they do not let any light pass through the fabric so if you are looking at a black colour to specifically draw a room this range even the white colour will still darken a room when closed.
