Fabric Properties

Each of the fabric blinds we sell in the UK from Homestyle Blinds has different fabric properties. This means if you need for example a showerproof blind for your bathroom window you can choose your blind type when you are buying direct online. Some of the properties of our fabric blinds are superb for creating the perfect atmosphere for your home, such as our sheer range of properties which allow a lot of light to enter through the blind, or the Omniview range which allow you to see out of your window, but people outside cannot see in! We’ve got modern fabric properties for the modern lifestyle. Kitchen blinds and bathroom blinds (as well as your kids room!) can be custom made with easy wipe fabrics, easy to clean and gorgeous looking.

Please see below for the list of properties available to buy through our online store. Use the search facility on each of our range pages if you would like to refine your blind purchase according to the fabric property, easy!
