If you’re looking for a way to protect your windows from prying eyes while staying on budget, then paper blinds could be the ideal solution. Unlike traditional blinds that need to be made to measure, a paper alternative comes in one size and can be cut down to size to fit any window. 

Paper blinds are best for rental properties, students, or anyone else who doesn't want the hassle of drilling holes and making a mess. One of the main benefits of these blinds is that they are easy to fit and can be installed within minutes.

Temposhade Original

The only six pack you need in your home

The Temposhade original comes in a six-pack giving you the option to add a little bit of privacy to more than one room. They are 100% cordless and you have two small acrylic holding clips to adjust the blinds to your desired position during the daytime. These impressive paper blinds are provided with two lines of tape for a more ‘permanent’ hold. As well as the tape they also come with push pins for extra holding power if you’re fixing them to plasterboard or wood.  These blinds come in a light filtering white or a blackout black so whatever your preference, there’s a style for you. 

It's time to throw some shade

If you’re looking for a neat and easy way to upgrade your windows without having to drill holes then paper blinds are the perfect solution. They are ideal for rental properties, new builds, man caves, offices, and much more. We love the Caraselle paper blinds because these pleated paper blinds won’t sag or flatten and they are mess-free. 

We also think that the Sunfree Light Filtering paper blinds are a good buy, especially if you have pets or children as they don’t have lines, chains, or fixtures taking away the danger of them getting tangled. Also, the longer drop option is ideal for those who want to hang them on doors or have larger windows.
