Roller Blinds – A Great Trend for Style and Privacy

by Boris Dzhingarov on Oct 27, 2015

The latest trend in décor for stores, homes, bathrooms, kitchens and offices is found in roller blinds. These types of blinds can be either horizontal or vertical, made up of individual slats. The slats, in turn, can be made of metal, plastic, wood or fabric, and cords that weave through the slats hold them together. It is now even possible to open and close blinds using a remote control, although the majority continues to be manual. They act as a curtain, cover windows, are insulating and allow people to control the light.

All about Roller Blinds

There are many different types of roller blinds. Window shades are a popular choice, and these are generally made from polyester. They are mounted onto a metal pole and are opened with a side chain or spring mechanism.

Blinds are used in a variety of different rooms. In the bathroom, for instance, they provide ultimate privacy. In a bedroom, they can keep out all of the sunlight. This can be really important for children, or for people who work in shifts and have to sleep during daytime hours.

If you have a home theater room, you could also install blinds here. Again, this helps to block any light out. By keeping the light out, your viewing experience will be greatly increased, because the picture quality will be much better.

As said, in a bathroom, roller blinds provide complete privacy. However, just as in kitchens, you have to make sure that the material these blinds are made from are resistant to moisture. This is why wooden blinds may not be entirely suitable. If you insist on the wood look, however, then you can also choose faux wood instead.

If you live in a seaside property with large French windows, then blinds are also an absolute must. While watching the rising or setting sun is a wonderful experience, the sun has a tendency to glare for the rest of the day, which means that you may need blinds. This is also important in terms of protecting your flooring and fabrics, which would otherwise discolor because of the rays of the sun.

We are now even seeing a trend in expensive hotel rooms, where blinds are also installed. It is very convenient for people who have traveled across different time zones and would find it very difficult to sleep if the sun is glaring into their eyes. As such, these blinds can be used to prevent jetlag as well.

If you want to install roller blinds on any type of window, you will be happy to know that they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, styles and color. They have become an integral part of interior design, allowing you to enhance the overall look of your home or office. They provide privacy, excellent light control and, as the icing on the cake, they even help to insulate your property. This means they can actually help you lower your energy bills and save the environment as well.
