With spring in the air, we all feel a great breath of relief. When you look at winter, you can begin to see some truth to the Greek legend of Persephone and Hades. The sun, in winter, seems a lot less fiery and we all look forward to the proper sunny days of spring and the great barbies that we can enjoy. Of course, the downside to all this glorious sunshine is that it can be difficult to escape it at times.
There are times, during the heat of the day, that retreating indoors is the only alternative. In order to keep the sun off your back then, you need to look into using some sort of window treatment. Fabric blinds are a great way to tone down the harshness of the spring and summer sun. Fabric blinds can be made up in several different fabrics and textures in order to suit your look and your needs perfectly. You can choose to get translucent blinds that allow the light to shine through but block out a lot of the harsh rays or go for complete black out blinds for your TV room so you can support the Aussie rugby team and be the ref’s backup without the glare of the sun to get in the way of your calls. Use roller blinds and instantly bring the outdoors in by simply rolling away the blinds.
Of course, the love of the outdoors is something that most Aussies share and, if you love your view outside and also want to bring some light into the house, you can get hold of roller screens. These screens are made up specially to preserve the view and to filter out the bad UV rays. You and your family can it inside confident that the sun will not be doing any damage to you. Again, as these are roller screens, they very neatly roll up to leave your window wide open again.
The big advantage of roller blinds is their versatility: whatever type you select, you can find one that fits in with your lifestyle and budget. They are a great design alternative to curtains and give your room a more polished look. They can also completely cover the window during the day and then be drawn up at night to allow cooling breezes through. For sun protection at its best, you are going to battle to find something more suitable than a roller blind.
