Whether you choose roller blinds or Venetian blinds depends entirely on your specific needs. It is a good idea to establish exactly what you want out of your blinds. Understanding what the different styles of blinds are used for is the best way to help you to determine which will meet your needs.
Roller blinds are most commonly found in rooms with small windows such as kitchens and bathrooms. These blinds are fabric and operate by a very simple mechanism. They usually have a special coating that allows them to resist moisture and stains. The fabric rolls back onto a specially designed roller and is controlled by a cord. The blinds are usually completely opaque and allow for complete privacy and shade. The disadvantage is that the larger these blinds are, the more difficult they become to operate.
Roman blinds are also very simple but look quite stylish. You will need to vacuum these blinds in order to get rid of any accumulated dirt and grime. These blinds can be tailor-made to meet whatever needs you may have. Not only are they easy to install, they are easy to use as well. You can usually find quite a selection online and can also usually choose the perfect fabric to match your decor.

Another type of blinds that have become very popular of late, especially in Australia, are sunscreen blinds. These have specially designed fabrics that help to cut out UV glare in your home. Unlike blackout blinds, these allow light through but stop UV radiation. These are a good alternative to traditional curtains.
Venetian blinds are the last type we will discuss today. These are a great way to create a modern, stylish look. These blinds are easy to clean and maintain and are pretty versatile. They provide perfect privacy and can be opened to allow light and air into the room.
