Our Top 5 Ideas for Window Coverings in 2023

Window coverings are an important decision to make for your home. Just think about it, the fabric, colour, and type of window covering you choose for your windows is one décor feature that influences both the inside and outside of your home! 

It’s common for people when decorating their home to put focus on the furnishings and wall colour as these are some of the easiest changes you can make. We may be slightly impartial however, we truly believe that finding the right window covering can dramatically change the appearance of your home and significantly improve functionality. 

One misconception about window coverings is that they are boring, but it is exactly the opposite! Window coverings can come in literally every cover you could want and in so many pattern and fabric options. 

Our Top 5 Ideas for Window Coverings in 2023

Disney Blinds 

Disney Blinds

Finding a suitable window covering for your child’s bedroom can be a difficult task. You may be looking for functionality, safety and ease of operation, whereas your child will be wanting something fun and colourful with their favourite characters. 

We can give you the best of both worlds! 

With our range of Marvel and Disney blinds, you can inject some fun into their bedroom whilst being practical and efficient. This is definitely a great idea for window coverings when trying to appeal to a younger clientele. 

You can even opt for customisation features such as motorisation and blackout linings and all of these blinds come with a child-safe operating system!  


Tracked Shutters 

Tracked Shutters

Our tracked shutters are also a great idea for window coverings due to their operation style. 

Tracked shutters give you the flexibility of movement and the ability to easily partition large spaces, including indoor and outdoor areas. They allow you to have quick and easy access to your outdoor area by simply sliding them to the side. No more annoying unhooking! 

Since tracked shutters are especially good for their manoeuvrability, we would suggest using these in areas where their benefits will be especially noticeable such as for patio doors, large windows and French doors. 

These tracked shutters come in a variety of materials, but our personal favourite would be real wood or Marchwood panels, which are an MDF frame with real wood veneer. Both have an amazing appearance which can bring a level of elegance to any room. 


Alexa Blinds 

Alexa Blinds

If you are a technology lover, then this one is for you! 

Here at FJB, we like to stay at the forefront of technological advancements in the window covering business which now includes blinds which can be controlled via Amazon Alexa! 

These smart blinds are an option which offers endless convenience to your home. Ever wanted to open your blinds from your bed to bask in the morning sun? Well, now you can! 

Don’t worry. If you are less technologically inclined but would like this option, then don’t fear, as our specialists will assist you with incorporating your blinds system into the technology. 

We offer both hard-wired electric roller blinds and battery-powered variants too, all powered by Somfy’s industry-leading automation. Our battery-powered roller blinds are rechargeable and are charged much like how you would your phone. Both types are easy to use and responsive to all kinds of voice search. 


Shaped Window Shutters 

Shaped Window Shutters

We all love a good unique window however, when you look for window coverings, you may be stumped. It can be difficult to find coverings which highlight the shape rather than hide it. 

Whether you have a triangle, oval or another strangely shaped window, you’ve probably presumed that you can’t get shutters installed. 


FJB offer made-to-measure shutters for unusually shaped windows to highlight their uniqueness. Shutters for angled windows aren’t much different from traditional shutters – what sets them apart is that shaped shutters are designed to map perfectly onto the frame of your window, no matter what shape it might be. 

If you have a unique window, then we can bet it is one of the defining features of your house and a source of pride when guests compliment it. With our shutters, they will draw attention to the window instead of away from it. 

We even have 18 different colours on offer to suit your colour scheme. 


Vertical Blinds 

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, and they make impressive statement pieces to any room.  What a whopper! 

This type of blind is especially stunning when you pick a pop of colour to feature. 

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. Whether you are looking for a neutral look, bold and bright or monochromatic, let us help you make your blinds a feature piece of the room.  

The blinds we offer here are much better than any off-the-shelf solution because they are all created bespoke for every customer. What does that mean? Freedom and NO HASSLE. Not only this, but the made-to-measure vertical blinds we supply to our customers can neatly fit all kinds of windows with ease, with rails custom-made using the highest quality materials to fit your specific bay, curved, or sloped windows.
