The Different Functions Of Roller Blinds

A major benefit of roller blinds is their flexibility. Roller blinds are suited to all rooms in the house, and can both screen and block out the light. This flexibility is largely due to the diverse materials used that serve different functions.

You need to consider what you want your blind to do. Do you need to block out light completely or filter it? Do you want to hide an unpleasant outside landscape, or are you concerned about cleaning a bathroom blind? Once you work out what you want from your blind, you will be in a better position to arrive at the right choice.

Block Out Blinds

If you want complete darkness and privacy in a room, choose a block out blind; these blinds are common in bedrooms. Block out blinds also help to insulate rooms. These blinds are manufactured in an array of fabrics and designs.

Screening Blinds

A screening blind screens daylight, but does not darken the room completely. These blinds soften and diffuse the light to allow only a vague silhouette of outside scenery. While screening blinds retain the brightness, this depends on the colour of the blind; the lighter the blind, the lighter the room.

These blinds create privacy in the daytime. They are also useful in blocking out unpleasant views such as a high side fence.

Translucent Blinds

Use this blind to gain some protection from outside light, while retaining an outside view. These blinds usually block out a percentage of UV light and provides a moderate level of privacy during the day.

Dual Roller Blinds

This is a blind system in which two blinds sit on the same bracket, and they can be operated independently. A block out blind and a screening blind, for example, can be combined to provide complete lighting control so you can either screen or block the light as needed. For more effective light control, the block out blind should be closest to the window to reduce light entering through the sides.

Moisture Resistant Blinds

Roller blinds are also made in moisture resistant, easy to clean materials suitable for kitchens and bathrooms.

Roller blinds are flexible enough to be used in any room of the house. Due to variations in material, they can filter the light to different degrees, and dual roller blinds add more control still. Moisture resistant blinds provide a solution for kitchens and bathrooms. If you ask yourself the right questions about what you want from your blind, your choice will become evident.
