Colour Matching Blinds: Walls or Trim?

If you find that you are completely stuck on which color of blinds to use in your home, it is typically safe to take a close look at the window casing or trim around the window. By choosing a color that closely matches the tone of the trim, it will give the appearance that your blinds are simply part of the architecture of the room. If your focal point in the room is something other than the window, such as a piece of furniture or a painting, white blinds will not draw attention from it. The good news is, there are many different colors and finishes to choose from when it comes to blinds.

The best color blinds and whether or not your blinds should match the trim, or the walls depends on your personal style. You tend to see blinds and trim match (specifically with neutral colors) in traditional settings. Neutral tones are safe choices because they will match with many different designs and colors. For example, there are many shades of white, from bright to off and everything in between. A white blind allows the windows to blend into and flow with the rest of the decor. However, if you’re looking for more contrast, it is common to match other elements in the room.

One of the best ways to choose the color of your blinds is to simply consider the overall color scheme of whichever room you are working in. For example, if you are looking to add blinds to the windows in your kitchen, consider not only the color of the cabinets in the kitchen, but also any paint on the walls. You can either choose to have your blinds match exactly with cabinets, trim or wall colours or find a color that accents them nicely.

Window blinds are an excellent choice for any space. Not only are they practical — it’s all about optimal privacy, allowing the most natural sunlight in during the day and temperature regulation — but they’re also perfect for adding a pop of style to your room, giving your window a sort of harmonious treatment. Choosing the right blinds colour is an important part of the buying process.

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing blinds is that they’re almost always limited to solid colors or finishes. But don’t let that deter you. With the many unique hues, stains and textures out there, you can still bring plenty of style and interest to your home décor with solid-colored or finished blinds.

If you’re open to finding a happy medium between fabric window coverings and blinds, and want something with a fun print, then consider patterned Roman Shades.  Remember, a set of blinds in a single color doesn’t have to be boring. We’ll show you how!

Many homeowners like to pair blinds with drapery. The various layers add depth to a room and provide an extra level of privacy. You could add a layer of softness with decorative fabric drapery panels to customize the look and coordinate with your décor. Patterned full-height panels tie in wall colors to the colors of both the trim and the blinds. For a more traditional look and additional privacy, especially during the daytime, add a billowy sheer layer over the top of the blinds, in addition to drapery panels.

You need window blinds that provide all the functionality required for your unique space without taking away from the aesthetic quality and design motif of the room. We’re here to help you decide on the perfect blind colors for your home, no matter if your style is totally earthy and rustic, refined and luxurious or somewhere in between.
