Inject Instant Style into Your Home When You Buy Double Roller BlindsNiranjan Kumar
When it comes to choosing window coverings for the home, double roller blinds are about the closest thing to an all-round crowd-pleaser that you will find. But how do you know if you should buy double roller blinds? Here we will look at just a few of the advantages that they offer, so you can decide whether they are the right choice for your home.
With double roller blinds (also known as night/day blinds) you can easily:
- Control light, insulation, and privacy
- Create a cohesive look
- Change up the style to suit your style
Double roller blinds are the most versatile choice on the market today, because they feature blinds in two different fabrics, mounted on the one mechanism, but operating independently. Let’s have a closer look at some of the benefits that this setup provides.
Control light, insulation, and privacy
When you buy double roller blinds you will be given a choice of fabrics to use in combination, with one blockout blind, and one sunscreen or light filtering blind being the most common combination.
By pulling down the light filtering blind you will protect your home and furnishings from direct UV rays and provide a degree of privacy, without making your house feel dark and gloomy.
The blockout blinds can be used either in the hottest part of the day to keep your home naturally cool, or at night when you want both privacy, and the greater insulation that ensures your home’s heating or cooling isn’t lost through exposed window glass.
This versatility is another reason homeowners choose to buy double roller blinds throughout Australia. They can easily be adapted to suit a tropical, temperate, or cool climate.
Create a cohesive look
Now that we’ve covered the practical side, let’s look at some of the style benefits. One of the reasons so many homeowners choose to buy double roller blinds is their ability to fit within contemporary or classic interiors.
Not only do roller blinds suit almost any style of building, but their simple lines look great in any room. With double roller blinds, you can have a cohesive look throughout the house, tempering the light in one room, and making the most of the view in another, all with the same style of blind.
We all know the role that mirrors and white walls have when seeking to visually enhance the size of a room, but windows and the use of exterior space may play an even greater role. A fence or brick wall directly outside a window will make a room feel closed in. Obscuring that direct sight while still admitting light will make rooms feel wonderfully light and airy. This is where the light filtering fabric of your double roller blinds really comes into its own.
This isn’t the only way that double roller blinds can help you change the mood with lighting. Draw down the blockout blind on a cold winter’s night, add some lamplight, and make any room cosy and inviting.
Change up the style to suit your style
Once you have decided that double roller blinds are the right choice for your home, it’s time to get a little creative.
Before you buy your double roller blinds, request a sample for both fabrics, just like you would with paint samples.
Blinds can represent significant blocks of colour in the home, so place your fabric samples up on the window and see how they look. You might even want to take special note of the way light can alter the colour of the sunscreen or light filtering fabric at different times of the day.
Many people choose a dark fabric for the blockout blind and a paler fabric for their sunscreen, but you don’t have to. Think about the way the two blinds will interact. If one blind is rolled all the way down, and the other is raised halfway, then you will have an interesting layered effect.
Another way to create layers and interest is to think about the additions you can make to your blinds. When they buy their double roller blinds many homeowners choose to purchase a matching pelmet that will hide the roll of fabric and the mechanism at the top of the blind. This is one way to create a sleek and modern look.
If you want something with a touch of elegance or whimsy, then you could add a curtain rod and drape it with a swag or scarf.
These are just a few of the ways to inject style into any home when you buy double roller blinds. We hope you have fun experimenting with colours and styles and find many more reasons to love these blinds too.
