When we see the word “blinds” we tend to immediately think of either the traditional Venetian blinds or the vertical blinds that we see in offices. Whether we see them as the traditional Venetian blinds or as the vertical blinds, it is the effect that these blinds create which tends to put people off blinds completely. What a lot of people do not realise is that there are a lot more than these two options when it comes to blinds.
An alternative form of blind, one that looks a lot more like a traditional window dressing are fabric blinds. These blinds are a lot simpler to operate than the Venetian blinds and are simply rolled down or up as required. Because they are a fabric, not wood or metal, finish, they are a lot softer looking whilst still providing the same great level of privacy and a screen from the sun. In addition, cleaning them seems, to me, a lot easier.
As far as it goes roller screens have a lot of great advantages. The different fabrics available allow you to choose different features for different rooms. Perhaps you want to be able to see the kids playing in the garden but not have to be exposed to the sun whilst doing so. You can choose roller screens that filter out the harmful rays of the sun but allow you to see through them. Want complete privacy but still have light filtering through? Roller screens can be made from a translucent fabric that allows the light to filter through but cannot be seen through at all. For those that have to have a pitch dark bedroom to sleep in, consider getting a block-out roller screen to completely block out the sun.
Whatever you needing blinds for, as a screen against the sun; a screen for privacy or merely as a design statement, there are blinds out there that will suit both your tastes and your pockets. Blinds are a cost-effective alternative to curtains and can offer a lot more benefits. Did you know, for example, that you can save up to 60% of your final bill by ordering your blinds online? And that that means that they are made up from scratch for you specifically, not ready made. Initially, that may not seem to make sense but after a little thought, it does a made to order company only carries stock that has been ordered whereas a ready-made company has to keep a wide variety of stock that may or may not sell. At the end of the day, with home designs constantly changing, does it not make sense to screen your home off with blinds tailor-made for your windows?
