And what better way to add a pop of seasonal colour or a flourish of on-trend pattern to your home than by giving thought to investing in some beautiful blinds?

How to give your bathroom a total refresh in time for spring

Jason Peterkin, director at 247 Blinds, says: "There are so many styles of blinds available so it’s important to choose the right product for the room you’re decorating. For example, roller blinds are often well suited to kitchens and bathrooms as they usually have a protective coating which makes them easy to clean and wipe down".

Peterkin continues: "However, when choosing blinds for your bedroom, you may want to consider products with a blackout lining if you struggle to sleep without complete darkness or, alternatively, go for Venetian or day night blinds that allow you to control the amount of light that filters through".
