Linen is one of those exceptional materials that looks chic and elegant. The material is used to clothe some of the most stylish people in warmer climates, it covers beds around the globe, and importantly, can be used to great effect improving the stylishness of interiors. Today we’ll be looking closely at this amazing fabric and the best ways you can capture the look of linen in your home.

What is linen fabric?

Linen is made from the flax plant and – once woven into fabric – is once the most stylish materials on earth. What makes it so, is the texture and feel of the fabric which makes a space our outfit feel relaxed, airy and comfortable. 

That said, linen can be expensive and in its purest form, can easily wrinkle and lose its shape. However, it couldn’t be easier to capture the look and feel of linen and enjoy it in rooms around your home!

At Blinds Direct, we offer a linen blend in our ranges of curtains and Roman blinds and for roller and vertical blinds, we have an amazing textured material which flawlessly captures the feeling and beauty of linen in a way that’s perfectly suited for window furnishings, without breaking the bank.

Vertical blinds are a true classic. The long, streamlined, and classy slats have been used to great effect in homes and offices alike and beyond the attractive look of these blinds is their functionality.

Within our range of high quality, made to measure textured vertical blinds there are timeless natural tones which are the perfect addition to many interior design trends. Don’t forget, you can also order replacement vertical blind slats if a couple of your current slats are looking a little tired or have been damaged!
