How to measureGrab a tape measure before you hit the shops and keep your window measurements handy when you visit showrooms in search of blinds.For blinds that fit inside the window recessFirst, measure the width of the top, sides and bottom sections of your window recess. Select the shortest measurement of the three. Do the same while calculating the drop (left, right and centre) and select the shortest measurement here as well. Stick to exact measurements in millimetres when you share the dimensions of your window recess with a blinds professional and avoid rounding up or making any deductions.

What are the most common ways people waste power in summer?Setting the air conditioner temperature too low. The ideal setting for cooling and energy efficiency is 25 degrees celsius. Every degree lower than that can add up to 10 percent to your electricity bill. Leaving the doors and windows open when the air con is on.Running the air con too long at night after the outside air has cooled down. You can reduce power usage by setting it on a timer to switch off after a few hours.Cooling parts of your home that you’re not using. Instead, zone cooling so it only operates in rooms that are actually occupied.Running your fridge too cold or putting it in a warm, under-ventilated spot, such as a hot garage.

Choose the right blindsRoller blinds: Often used as a double treatment, such as combining a sheer and a blockout blind (as shown above). Sheers: These can boost privacy and add solar protection in the day, but do not provide privacy at night. Blockout blinds: Often used in bedrooms, these block sun and light, and create full privacy.Roman blinds: A more traditional and formal treatment that is often made from a feature fabric. It can be lined to form a blockout blind or unlined for a translucent look. Venetian blinds: These horizontal slats allow you to manage light levels with ease.

3. Contrast coloursCreate minimal impact with white roller blinds that blend in well with the ceiling colour. Thermal blockout blinds will keep unwanted light and heat at bay, and you can then add a touch of luxe by adding sheer curtains that contrast with the other elements in the room to make a visual statement.

If you would like to add some pattern to your bedroom and floral organic patterns are just too feminine for you, consider more masculine patterns such as chevrons and stripes.
