As a neat, chic and contemporary fixture that can also be motorised, roller blinds work as an effective design solution in a complete refurbishment or cost-effective update. Before investing in this type of window treatment it’s important to consider particular requirements. Taylor Blinds and Shutters’ C-Screen collection, for example, offers an excellent solution for controlling light and heat as their block-out screens – made from opaque fabric – completely remove light from a room. The hybrid range, on the other hand, offers the benefits of a screen and block-out roller blind by both filtering and reducing the amount of light that enters the interior.
Other design friendly features of the roller blind include the fact that they can be updated quickly and inexpensively if consumers ever tire of their fabric choice; they’re anti-microbial, fire-retardant and act as a UV protector for fine furnishings and wooden flooring. What’s more, roller blinds keep the warmth in during the cooler months and the heat out in summertime.
