For a long time, roller blinds have been overshadowed by their shuttered siblings, and their true potential has not been realised by the masses. For such a simple and clean design, the roller blind offers much more, and is easily customised to suit your every need.
There are three types of roller blinds, which are all available with either chain control or motorised:
- Sunscreen – provides UV protection and significantly reduces the glare through the window. You are able to see outside throughout the day when the blind is down, but outsiders cannot see in. However, at nighttime, this option lacks privacy if you are overlooked by neighbours.
- Translucent – offer a moderate level of privacy day and night and allow light to filter into the room. This option, however, is not recommended if you are wanting to enjoy a view, as you cannot see out when the blind is down.
- Blockout – provides optimal UV protection and significantly reduces the build-up of heat in the rooms. The blockout features a heavy and durable fabric with a white plastic backing, which cannot been from inside the room.
These options also work well in conjunction with one another, with a popular option being the sunscreen and blockout together on a dual system. This enables you to retain the view during the day whilst reducing glare, and enjoying complete privacy and light reduction at night.
