The most popular blinds in style for 2022 are those that meet the needs and evolving demands of the customer. This year, customers have placed importance on not only style and aesthetics but on practicality too!

With home and remote working becoming increasingly more common, blinds buyers are looking for solutions to problems that they otherwise might not have encountered, like how to maintain privacy in your home office without blocking too much light.

This has of course impacted the way customers are shopping and led to changes in the leading interior design trends, particularly regarding the most popular blinds. So, why don’t we first look at the reasons our customers purchase blinds in the first place, to understand them a little better.

Reasons for Purchasing Blinds in 2022

There have been a lot of changes over the past few years with the impact of the pandemic. Meaning the most popular blinds aren’t just based on how they look, but the benefits they can provide and the solutions they offer to some of the problems we now experience.

Screen Glare

As many more of us have started working from home, it important that we have a space that is comfortable to work in. The last thing you want to deal with is glare on your computer screen.

Home Working

Glare isn’t the only issue when it comes to home working. If you have regular zoom meetings with your colleagues, the last thing you need is to be blinded by the sun. Our range of blackout blinds ensure you can block out all light when required.

Blinds for Home Office

Rising Energy Costs

With energy costs increasing at a rapid pace, we know it can be difficult. One of the best and most affordable ways to reduce energy costs is by installing blinds, particularly thermal or insulated blinds. Thermal blinds can help reduce heat loss by up to 40% depending on the style you choose.

Uncomfortable Temperatures

Some of us can never be pleased, we complain when it’s too hot and complain when it’s too warm. If that sounds like you then, you might be looking for blinds that can regulate temperature. One of the most popular blinds for temperature control are our cellular pleated blinds.

Privacy

Maintaining privacy has always been one of the main concerns for customers when buying blinds. Depending on your individual needs, we offer various blinds that all offer some or total privacy. So, there’s no need to worry about nosy neighbours!

There have been some big shifts in trends for blinds over the last few years. Some of the styles increasing in popularity at the moment include natural looking blinds, eco-friendly blinds as well as easy to fit blinds.
We’ve put together a list of the most popular window blinds so far this year:

Faux Wood Blinds & Real Wood Blinds

White Wooden Blinds in Kitchen

Wooden Venetian Blinds are one of the best-selling blinds on the market currently and it’s easy to see why. These incredible blinds add a natural element back into the home and look super sleek and stylish. Not only that, but wooden blinds offer a whole host of benefits!
One of the main reasons for their popularity is because of the privacy they can provide. With rotating slats, you can decide exactly how much light you want to let in and how much privacy you want to maintain.

Our range of faux wood and real wood venetians are available in a wide selection of colours, the most popular choices being bright whites and greys.
Faux Wood Blinds are a cost-effective alternative to real wood, and they can also be used in moist or damp environments like your kitchen or bathroom due to their PVC material.
If you like the look of wooden shutters, wood or faux wood venetians also make a budget friendly option that still give you that elegant shutter style finish.
If you want to maintain privacy and have more control over lighting and get that elegant, flawless finish, this might be the style of blind for you!

Roller Blinds

Floral Roller Blind

Roller blinds have always been at the top of the list for the most popular blinds and most likely always will be one of the favourites.
They are available in a multitude of different fabrics, colours and designs which make them one of the most versatile options when matching your blinds to interior décor.
In 2022 we have seen an increase in popularity for printed patterned blinds, floral roller blinds and bold colours. Blackout roller blinds have also soared in popularity with more people working from home offices.
Roller blinds are also one of the most affordable window blinds on the market, so it’s easy to see why they are one of the most popular blinds for 2022!

Vertical Blinds

Sustainable & Organic Materials

Home décor trends this year seem to be moving towards maximising the use of sustainable, reusable materials.

Some trends are just a fad, but others can withstand the test of time. Sustainability may have an influence here too as consumers are now more conscious of the products they buy. This means they are buying furnishings and décor that will last. No more upgrading year by year when you opt for a timeless interior.

Simplicity

Sleek textures and bright whites and neutrals are always a popular choice within interior design. Simple is best in 2022, consumers want their interiors to look effortlessly perfect.
We don’t really see this trend ever going out of style. If you’re looking for that put-together, clean, simple look, our range of white wooden blinds is our number one recommendation.
