Renter Friendly Blinds Guide

When renting a home, you can be limited with your options for personalising your space, but there are ways to make it feel like your own. You could ask your landlord if you can paint a feature wall, or put up pictures.

One easier option is to choose renter-friendly blinds that can transform the look and functionality of your windows without causing any permanent damage. 

We offer a wide range of blinds that are perfect for renters, with options available in a wide range of styles and designs to suit every budget. 

What Makes a Good Rental Friendly Blind?

When selecting blinds for your rental property, there are a few key factors to consider:

  • Personalisation: Choose blinds that add a touch of personality to your space. Opt for colours, patterns, or textures that reflect your style and make you feel more at home. Add warmth or zest - the possibilities are many!
  • Functionality: Consider the functionality of the blinds. As well as blocking out light, blackout blinds can help reduce external city noise, regulate temperature, and save on heating and cooling costs. All especially useful features when you’re renting!

The Best Blinds for a Rental Property

Bearing that in mind, here are some suggestions for the best blinds you could put in your rental property.

  • Fabric Roller Blinds: Roller blinds are versatile and simple to install. Opt for fabric roller blinds to add a pop of colour or pattern to your windows. They provide privacy, light control, and can easily be paired with curtains for a layered look.

One favourite is this textured privacy roller blind that will diffuse harsh sunlight whilst still allowing you to see outside. Ideal for when you’re after privacy but don’t want to block out light entirely.

  • Venetian Blinds: These blinds are a popular choice due to their adjustable slats that allow for precise light control and privacy. For rental properties, aluminium or PVC options are lightweight, easy to clean, and offer a sleek and modern appearance. 

These persian red aluminium blinds demonstrate that your blind choice doesn’t have to be boring. Add a flash of colour with these, or similar ones to match a rug.

  • Blackout Roller Blinds: If you value privacy and a darkened room for better sleep or to enhance movie nights, blackout roller blinds are the perfect solution. They block out sunlight entirely and are available in various colours and designs to match your decor.

For a stylish option in the bedroom or kitchen this Orla Kiely bird black-out blind will keep the light and add a characterful flourish.

  • Faux Wood Blinds: With their classic and timeless appearance, faux wood blinds are an excellent choice for rental properties. They are durable, moisture-resistant, and easy to clean, making them suitable for any room, including kitchens and bathrooms. Their cordless or wand-operated options ensure child safety and convenience.

These faux white blinds would work well in the kitchen or bathroom as they’re waterproof and will withstand warping.

  • Cordless Day and Night  Blinds: These blinds are easy to install and operate without the need for drilling. They offer excellent insulation, which helps to regulate temperature, block out noise, and increase energy efficiency. Choose light-filtering options to create a soft and welcoming ambiance in your living areas.

Our grey Aries Day and night blind offers a super stylish pleated effect stripe for those lovers of texture and movement in their homes.

With a few simple touches, you can transform your rental space with stylish and functional additions. Blinds may not seem the most obvious of choices but you’ll be amazed with the difference. Look around now - what colour would make each room pop?
