Your own personal haven — the bedroom. Here, you have the luxury to fully unwind, relax, and recharge. Every element within this intimate space plays a crucial role in crafting the perfect atmosphere for a restful night’s sleep. Just as you carefully select the right bedding and furniture, choosing high quality bedroom window coverings is equally paramount.

Beyond aesthetics, it’s about creating an environment that goes above and beyond. It’s about providing the ultimate light control and maintaining a comfortable temperature. In this comprehensive guide, we’re here to share our expert advice, guiding you through essential factors to consider, our top product recommendations, exploring the latest trends, colour coordination and leveraging technology.

Where do I start in the decision making process?


Now that you understand how important it is to select the right Blinds for your bedroom, you are probably wondering where to start – you aren’t alone!

We’ll take you through important factors to consider making an informed decision.

Privacy + light control.

In our bedrooms, ensuring both absolute privacy and light control is essential at bedtime. However, throughout the day, we like making the most of that natural daylight. If your bedroom receives a lot of sunlight, choosing Blinds that effectively reduce the intensity of light is essential, particularly in spaces like children’s rooms, where they can be more sensitive to brightness.


When deciding on the ideal Blinds for your bedroom, don’t overlook the impact on your home’s temperature throughout the different seasons. Certain types of Blinds excel at keeping your space cool, while others can provide more warmth. Some versatile options provide both! Stay tuned as we explore options that strike the perfect balance, ensuring your bedroom is comfortable all year round.

Your style.

Your bedroom is your personal space, so you want to choose Blinds that help reflect your taste and the theme you wish to create. Do you want Blinds that stand out, or Blinds that compliment your room’s current style?  At dollar curtains + blinds, we have Blinds that cater to different preferences.

Practicality + style.

While aesthetics matter, practicality and safety in our bedrooms is above all else. Especially when sharing your space with children and pets, selecting Blinds that prioritise safety is crucial.

Blockout Roller Blinds




Our top recommendations for bedroom Blinds.

Roller Blinds.

Discover why so many customers choose Roller Blinds for their bedrooms. Their versatility shines through, as they effortlessly manage light, shield against heat and glare, and disappear whenever you like. Ideal for all bedrooms of the house, our Roller Blinds feature child and pet safe controls, ensuring peace of mind for all.

When it comes to bedrooms, we recommend considering the dual-purpose solution –Double Roller Blinds. This product seamlessly combines two Blinds on one window, catering to both day time and night time needs. Experience the best of both worlds, combining the advantages of a Sunscreen or Sheer Blind for gentle light diffusion and UV protection, seamlessly complimented by a Blockout Blind for complete room darkening and privacy.

Elevate your bedroom Blinds with our custom-made Pelmets or cassettes and side channels. These additions not only complete the look of your windows, but also enhance light control by concealing Blind hardware and improve insulation by trapping air at the tip or sides of the window.

Roman Blinds. 

These are the perfect alternative if you love the aesthetic of Curtains, but face space constraints in your bedroom. Our Roman Blinds feature luxurious pleated folds, raised with a soft layering effect, adding a touch of sophistication.

They offer the versatility to adjust light in any room, casting a soft and beautiful ambiance. Beyond their appeal, Roman Blinds are great for bedrooms, as they are excellent insulators to keep you comfortable throughout the night.

Soft vs Hard Roman Blinds for bedrooms.



Soft Roman Blinds effortlessly merge the simplicity of Blinds with the warmth and versatility of soft furnishing fabrics. Our Soft Roman Blinds maintain the stability of the front Curtain fabric, preventing shrinkage or distortion, while offering enhanced insulation and light control.


Hard Roman Blinds feature battens that create sharp, clean lines with subtle folds, seamlessly integrating into a traditional interior, or add a touch of softness to contemporary bedrooms.

Venetian Blinds. 

Another great option for your bedroom – Venetian Blinds. Available in timber or aluminium blades, our Venetian Blinds seamlessly blend classic charm with contemporary functionality, offering the perfect trifecta of privacy, light control, and ventilation. Like our Roller Blinds, Venetians are also suitable for all bedrooms. They are easily adjustable, allowing you to open and close the blades to any position and control the direction of sunlight throughout your bedroom.

What sets our Venetian Blinds apart for your bedroom? It’s all in the details! dollar curtains + blinds employ a top of the line, technically superior hardware system, coupled with extra componentry at no extra cost, ensuring unparalleled durability. Explore our design styles, such as Paris Timber, known for excellent sound absorption qualities, and a timeless appearance of premium grade timber. Alternatively, you could also consider our Whitfield timber-like Venetians, boasting a realistic wood appearance made from durable polyresin, offering excellent resistance to discolouration, fading, and peeling.

Take your bedroom Blinds to another level – Bonded Blinds. 

Wanting to take your bedroom style to that extra level? Our unique Bonded Blinds are for you.

We take an uncoated Curtain fabric and expertly bond it to a Blockout Roller Blind. With an extensive selection of prints, stripes, florals, and Jacquard fabrics to choose from, these Blinds not only enhance your bedroom décor, but also offer the same benefits as our Blockout Roller Blinds! Achieve the ideal fusion of style and complete light control with this option.

Layering Curtains + Blinds.

Transform your bedroom with the perfect blend of function and style, by incorporating both Blinds and Sheer Curtains. If you love the soft and elegant look of Sheers during the day, consider layering them with Blockout Roller Blinds. This combination seamlessly pairs the beautiful softness of Sheers with the room darkening qualities of Blockout Roller Blinds, creating that aesthetically pleasing and versatile solution to suit any time of day.

How do I know which colour to choose?


When selecting Blinds for your bedroom, whether its Roller Blinds, Bonded Blinds, or Roman Blinds, colour choice plays a crucial role in shaping your bedroom aesthetic. For a clean and minimalistic look, coordinating the Blind colour with your wall colour is very common. Alternatively, if you would like to add a pop of personality into your neutral bedroom, opt for bolder colours to create a statement effect that adds vibrancy.

To enhance the sense of openness in your bedroom, choosing lighter hues can visually expand the space. On the other hand, if you’re aiming for a warm and calming atmosphere in larger bedrooms, darker colours can work exceptionally well.

If our Bonded Blinds have sparked your interest, align your colours and patterns with your existing bedroom décor and colour scheme. This approach ensures a cohesive and visually appealing ambience, contributing to the overall harmony of the space. It is also important to consider the mood you wish to create – light fabrics like whites of creams foster a brighter and airy atmosphere, while darker colours can evoke a relaxed and intimate feel.

Create an automated + sustainable sanctuary.


Automation is the ultimate choice for modern day living and is now more convenient than ever. Our Automate® range can operate your bedroom Blinds with just one device.
