08 Oct 2021
With the introduction of window blinds, a new style trend in window furnishings has emerged. There are many different styles and designs available now, and new items are being produced all the time to add to the diversity. These blinds not only appear great and elegant, but they also complement the design of the room and add a lovely finishing touch. Many individuals choose roller blinds because they provide more privacy and reduce energy use. They are ideal for adding style to any house or business. Roller blinds are one of the most versatile blinds in the market.

What are Roller Blinds and Roller Shades?

A roller blind is a single cloth that rolls around a casing and fits into the top of a window frame. These blinds are either within or outside the recess. A pull cord attached to the bottom of the blind or a side-winding chain mechanism attached to the blind casing help control the roller blind. Motorized controls are also available, allowing you to open and close your blinds from a distance.

Roller Shades

Shades are "soft" window treatments constructed of fabrics on a continuous roll that covers a big area of a window opening. They fit snugly into your window and stack neatly at the top. They have no slats or vanes and give your windows a smooth appearance. Hence, they are known as soft window treatments because the fabric and feel of the shade are warm and flowing.. Since Roller Shades do not have slats, they are much easier to clean and safer for the elderly, kids and pets.

Types of Roller Blinds

There are different kinds of roller blinds to meet the diverse needs of the rooms.

Different Material Roller Blinds

Each room or space has different lighting requirements. For example, a home theatre would need blinds that completely block out light, but a living room would require a more open look with more light. 

Roller blinds give a significant benefit over curtains in rooms that receive a lot of sunlight. They provide good UV protection while allowing you to see your surroundings. SonnetteTM Cellular Roller Shades, for example, combine the energy efficiency of a cellular shade with the clean looks of a standard roller blind, giving you the best of both worlds. Fabrics with differing opacities can be paired with Roller Blinds to produce varying degrees of light control.
