Roller Blinds (1704)
Shelter your space from curious eyes with roller blinds. Use them in rooms where space is at a premium, as they fit close to windows. Pick a neutral colour such as brown, cream, white, off-white, or grey, and they blend into the background. In rooms where you want a bolder statement, use window rods and pair them with drapes and curtains.
For rooms where the sunlight is strong and bothersome, pick room-darkening roller shades. Get an exact measurement of the windows, to keep light from appearing round the edges. When sunlight isn’t an issue, look for sheer window roller blinds, as these filter light, allowing some to pass through. For spaces where moisture is present, such as in kitchens and bathrooms, pick models made from waterproof materials like polyester or PVC. These types of materials are also easy to wipe down when roller shades get dirty.
Zebra roller blinds are just right for when the light levels needs constant adjustment. With movable fabric bands alternating with translucent materials, you can decide just how much light to allow into the room. For large windows that cover the entire space from the ceiling to floor, motorized blinds may be a better option. These allow individuals to lower or raise them by touching a button, rather than have to manually adjust them.
Combine roller shades with other types of window treatments, such as curtains and drapes. Many individuals love the look of sheer curtains, but are unwilling to give up on a good night’s sleep because of them. In this situation, combining blackout roller shades with the sheer curtains helps satisfy both the aesthetic need and the sleep craving.
