Inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the Italian countryside, the Tuscany range of panel glide, roller and roman blinds puts the accent on natural warmth and style. Hand-woven look linear textures add visual depth and elevate the natural feel.
What are the practical benefits of these blinds?
Tuscany II blinds are available in panel glide, roller and roman styles, each of which comes with its own individual benefits.
Panel glide blinds are similar to vertical blinds, but with much wider panels, so that they are able to cover large, full-length windows or doorways. They’re also made from blackout fabrics, which offer total privacy.
Roller and roman blinds, on the other hand, can be fitted to much smaller windows that may be overwhelmed by curtains or panel glide blinds. In most cases, both styles of blinds can be fitted flush to the window frame for a seamless finish. However, while the fabric used in roman styles traditionally gathers when the blind is open, creating a valance effect, roller blinds are almost entirely hidden from view when open.
As they all have the option to be partially opened or drawn, Tuscany II panel glide, roman and roller blinds all offer a good degree of light and air control, allowing you to easily change the look and feel of your space as required.
What are the styling benefits of these blinds?
The Tuscany II range has been inspired by the natural beauty of the Italian countryside, with styles available in a selection of muted colours to complement any interior.
Made from handwoven fabrics, the textured finish of Tuscany II blinds brings both softness and added visual interest to window coverings. Roman styles, with their folds of fabric, amplify this look, while their horizontal lines also help to create visual width.
Similarly, floor to ceiling panel glide blinds are great for showcasing room height and creating a sense of space.
Both roller blinds and panel glide blinds offer a simpler aesthetic than roman blinds, with clean lines and retractable or stackable panels creating a more discrete look. They can also be used in conjunction with curtains for added privacy and light control.
Where should I install these blinds?
The versatility of Tuscany II blinds makes them suitable for almost every area of the home.
The blackout fabric used in panel glide blinds makes them best suited to rooms that benefit from total darkness and/or privacy, such as bedrooms, home cinemas or ground floor apartment buildings. They’re also a safer option if you have small children or pets, as they operate on a tracking system meaning there are no cords, chains or weights involved.
Roman blinds are more of a statement design choice and should be used in rooms with a neutral palette where soft furnishings are able to become the visual hero.
In all other instances, roller blinds are a great go-to, thanks to their simple aesthetic, functionality and durability.
