Here Are 5 Roller Blinds To Keep You Warm in Winter
Well placed roller blinds in your Melbourne home have the ability to help insulate your home further and therefore keep it warmer in the winter, therefore reducing your heating bill or the need to buy thermal clothing options.
Triple Shade Roller Blinds
These types of blinds appear pleated due to their combination of curtain and roller blind features. The roller blind component includes the sheer or privacy blinds and the blockout blinds. It is suggested that, due to the highly elegant appearance of these blinds, they are a great addition to any entertaining or living area, as well as the main bedroom.
Blockout Roller Blinds
Blockout Roller Blinds are made of thick fabric which is oftentimes backed by a form of plastic to further bolster the integrity of the fabric as well as reduce the material’s ability to allow light through. When installed correctly, this type of blind can reduce the amount of light in a room by up to 98%, making them a perfect addition to rooms requiring little to no light. These rooms could be bedrooms or theatre rooms.
Vision Roller Blinds
Vision Roller Blinds are also known as Zebra Roller Blinds due to their striped appearance. The reason for these blinds to appear striped is they are made from alternating fabrics – one being the sheer kind and the other being the solid material kind. These reduce the ability for people on the outside of the window to see in. Vision Roller Blinds are great for rooms where light is just as important as privacy, such as front rooms for example.
Double Roller Blinds
Double Roller Blinds, also called Day and Night blinds, are a 2-in-1 blind that has one roller with a sheer blind and another with a blockout blind. These are placed in the same roller frame, each managed by their own roller mechanism. These blinds are great for bedrooms, living rooms, theatre rooms and home offices. This is because the blinds can be adjusted to both reduce glare with the sheer blind or reduce light with the blockout blind.
Privacy blinds are a sheer material used in roller blinds to offer privacy whilst still allowing maximum light into a room. These kinds of blinds are useful where light reduction isn’t an issue. Rooms that could be considered for this type of blind are living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens.
The 5 types of roller blinds come in a variety of styles and suitable for multiple rooms. The right blind in the right room will ultimately insulate the room. Insulating rooms has been shown to reduce heat loss in winter. Heat loss reduction will benefit everyone and reduce house outgoings associated with keeping a house.
