What Are the Best Types of Blinds for Schools?

There are many things which you have to think of concerning schools and student accommodation but don’t forget one vital thing – blinds!

Whilst many different types of blinds can help control light and noise, there are also a few other factors to consider before making your final decision.

To alleviate some stress from your decision-making process, we’ve put together a list of some of the best types of blinds for schools and student accommodation so that you can easily compare them side-by-side and find one that works best for your needs.  

Roller Blinds  

Easy to function for both students and teachers, roller blinds are a traditional yet efficient choice for classrooms. They’re easy to clean, safe, can be used in almost any room, and are effective in light control during the day.

All roller blinds at Fraser James Blinds are made to measure and designed to neatly fit windows of any shape or dimension.

Not only this, but the roller blinds we supply at Fraser James Blinds are available in various colours and styles, so you’ll be able to find something that fits your school’s needs perfectly.   

Blackout Blinds  

Blackout blinds are ideal for rooms where you need complete darkness, such as the main hall where assemblies and presentations will take place – blackout blinds will allow for a good quality projection.  

Not only this, but blackout blinds are a popular choice for student accommodation rooms, as well as offices, corridors, and libraries.

Blackout blinds come in many different styles. You can find cordless or corded models (with either rollers or chains). Manual or motorised versions are also available depending on your preferences and needs, and budget.  

Venetian Blinds  

Similar to vertical blinds, Venetian blinds operate by either a cord or a wand, with ease of functionality in mind for the user. In a school environment, Venetian blinds can often be found in reception areas as they make for a neat and tidy appearance to any visitors.   

Their design allows you to filter the light accordingly during the day to keep the room bright whilst shielding the children from the sun’s UV rays.  

The bespoke range of Venetian blinds available at Fraser James Blinds offers complete freedom and choice, with over 240 slat colours to choose from and a range of different finishes – including our beautiful wooden designs.

You’ll be sure to find blinds that suit your school environment perfectly.   

Electric Blinds 

Electric blinds are easy to use and maintain, which makes them ideal for schools. They’re also safe, reliable and energy efficient. A must for any building with lots of young people in it.

Electric blinds are the modern way to control heat and light admittance in your school, enabling you to maintain a comfortable room temperature all year round. 

At the touch of a button, any blind can be raised or lowered to the required point – making this a convenient option for large properties or tall windows that aren’t easy to reach for manual operation.

Electric blinds have a stylish look that can be customised to suit any room. They come in a range of colours, styles, and sizes, so you can choose exactly what works best for your school environment. 

Faux Wooden Blinds 

Faux wooden blinds are the perfect choice for schools. Suppose you are looking for an alternative to wooden blinds. In that case, faux wood blinds offer the same earthly aesthetic without the risk of warping and at a lower cost.

Faux wood blinds are moisture-resistant and made from durable polymer materials, which explains their extended longevity. They are easy to clean, and their versatility makes them a popular window treatment for schools.

All faux wood blinds from Fraser James Blinds are made to measure for a perfect fit for those seeking a warm, natural look.   

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a fantastic combination of style and flexible functionality.

They bring high levels of privacy and shade to any room while being simple to operate, control and adjust. They make impressive statement pieces for any school.  

To ensure that our made-to-measure vertical blinds can complement any theme or decor, we offer a choice of over 300 fabrics, including bold, solid designs, light, neutral and soothing tones, textured pattern prints and more.

We have something to suit every taste here at Fraser James Blinds. Our friendly, experienced team will work with you every step of the way to find the ideal vertical blind solution for any room in your school – at the best possible price.
