In this article we will talk about an accessory that is not new, but that has resurfaced to stay at the forefront of interior design: the roller blind. Long eclipsed by the retractable curtains in the decoration, they made their reappearance when people understood that they are more manageable than the curtains. Nowadays, they personalize a fine decoration and give a certain class to the parts which comprise it.
Special features of roller blinds
Also called roller blinds or roller blinds, they give windows a sober and elegant appearance. But some models can successfully equip large openings such as bay windows or verandas, in order to create an accentuated intimacy with the outside. They are generally curtain blinds whose curtain can be made of aluminum, PVC, fabric or canvas and which are wound around an axis located on the upper part of an opening.
Depending on the quality and color of the curtain, a roller blind can be blackout, sifting, heat-resistant and non-flammable. They are easy to handle, their winding mode can be operated either manually or motorized with rf remote control. It should be noted that this operating mode is easier and quieter, providing a certain comfort of use. Another thing that attracts users is their solidity to frequent jobs. They are made to last and their use varies according to your specific choice. Whether in blackout mode to completely or partially hide the light or in solar reflector mode for verandas and bay windows, their charm is always incomparable.
Blinds according to the seasons and your needs
Roller blinds are usually positioned in the living room and behind a double curtain. You can choose from a variety of colors, colors and materials to match any color of your interior.
