Roller blinds are ideal for windows where privacy is required, or where there is a need to control strong sunlight. Widely used in modern houses, Roller blinds are available in a wide range of fabric styles including blockout, light filtering, or solar screen selections.
What are roller blinds?
Roller blinds are window blinds made from a stiffened fabric attached to a timber or aluminium roller. Sleek and sophisticated in design, they are a great way to easily control privacy, light and glare.
Why should I choose these kinds of blinds?
Quite simply, they give your home a cool, contemporary look and feel and are also incredibly easy to operate, making them a hugely popular choice for modern interiors. If your windows face the street, or if the neighbours can see through your windows, these blinds will give you all the privacy you need.
What types are available at Carpet Court?
In the past, they were used primarily as a device to completely block out light. Nowadays, you have many more options to choose from depending on your needs. Carpet Court has a wide range of these blinds in different fabric styles including block-out, light filtering and solar screen selections.
What are the advantages of block-out fabric?
Block out fabric does just that; it blocks out all forms of outside light. Block-out blinds are the perfect choice for bedrooms as they totally block out street light and the daytime sun, ensuring an uninterrupted night’s sleep. They may also have a coloured or patterned appearance, which allows you to add designer form to these functional blinds.
What are the advantages of light filtering fabric?
Light filtering fabric gives you the option of allowing various amounts of privacy and sunlight into your space. Carpet Court has an extensive range of transparencies to suit your individual needs.
What are the advantages of solar screen fabric?
Solar screen fabric is specifically designed to reduce heat and glare by filtering out harsh UV rays. If you have large windows or windows that let in a lot of sun, solar screen fabric will significantly reduce the amount of heat coming into the room. With energy costs skyrocketing, solar screen fabric is a perfect way to save on your power bills by reducing your reliance on air conditioning and heating to keep your home comfortable all year round.
What styles are available?
Roller Blinds are hugely versatile, and are available in a wide range of textures, colours and screen density to suit any style of décor or personal taste. Beautifully textured blinds as seen in our Chelsea collection add more visual depth to a space and elevate the natural look and feel of a room. Blinds with patterns such as our Blizzard collection add the wow factor by bringing a unique design element to your windows.
Whatever your style, you can be sure you’ll find it at Carpet Court.
Vertical vs horizontal pattern
Distinctive vertical patterns such as those seen in our Cordoba collection elongate a window and add visual depth, so this is an ideal choice if you want to make your windows appear longer. Horizontal patterns and textures such as those seen in our Stanza collection have the effect of making your windows appear visually wider.
Which style of Roller Blind will suit my home?
Roller Blinds are available in a huge range of colours and designs to suit any style of home. While there are no hard and fast rules, it’s important to consider that warm and cool colours will have different effects in your home. Warm colours are perceived as lively, while cool colours are more calming and relaxing. If your décor is more on the contemporary side, dramatic blacks and greys as seen in our Matrix range will make a striking designer statement. If you want to add an organic feel to a modern décor, consider choosing earthy tones and textures such as those in our Moma range.
