Are you considering some new window treatments for your home? Then look no further than roller blinds. They have recently been made very popular on many reality home improvement shows on television and are often referred to as ‘Day/Night’ blinds.
Here are the 5 reasons why they could be the best choice for YOUR home…
Roller Blinds are Versatile and Classic
Roller blinds typically take up minimal space and provide maximum view. They are a great option if you are looking for a window treatment that has simple lines. This is because they can fit tightly within the window frame and have very little excess fabric. The fabrics are available to you come in a range of patterns and colours so you won’t be short of options that suit your home the best.
Roller Blinds Provide Light Control and Privacy
Roller blinds are able to be made with a wide range of fabrics including translucent fabrics, block out fabrics, and sunscreen fabrics. Due to this fact, and based on your light control and privacy requirements, fabric can be selected to meet your exact requirements.
If you are looking for a way to screen the sun’s harmful UV rays and glare, sunscreen fabric would be an ideal choice. This fabric lets in the light, while screening out the rays and glare and still allowing you to see outside. Alternatively, if you want complete darkness and privacy, a block out fabric would be absolutely perfect. However, if you are looking for something in between, we recommend choosing a standard fabric.
If you want the best of both worlds, double roller blinds – also known as day/night blinds – are a great choice. In this instance, this is where there are actually two blinds – a sunscreen blind and a block out blind – installed on the same bracket. So not only do you get the benefits of a sunscreen blind when it is bright outside, but also the benefits of a block out blind when you need it.
They are Easy to Operate
Roller blinds are one of the easiest types of blinds to operate in your home, largely thanks to the choices that have been made available to you in the form of operating systems. They can be assisted by springs, fully motorised or operated by a chain drive. If you happen to have a motorised roller blind or chain drive, you can actually link a number of the blinds together so you can open and close multiple blinds at once with relative ease. Gone are the days when you have to reach each blind individually.
Roller Blinds are Highly Durable
You’d be hard pressed to fund roller blinds that aren’t durable. All of them are designed with steel tubes, strong, high quality fabrics and operating systems. All fabrics used will never fade from the sun as they have all been specifically treated to resist UV.
They Assist With Regulating the Room Temperature
As a complete window covering, roller blinds help keep the heat out during the summer and keep warmth in during the winter.
