Factors to Consider When Buying Sunscreen Rollers

Your Budget

As you prepare to purchase new sunscreen roller blinds for your home, it is important to consider how much money you would like to spend on them. It can be difficult to find quality roller shades that don’t break the bank, and you may find that you never really realised how many windows your home has until you have to buy window treatments for them all.

To determine your ideal price point, tally up the number of windows in your home. Divide the amount you have budgeted for blinds and divide that by the number of windows that you have. For example, if you have set a $1000 budget for your window treatments and you have 12 windows that need covering, you can spend around $80.00 per roller blind without going over your budget.

Your Light-Blocking Needs

Each room in your home has its own purpose. In some rooms, you may want as much sunlight as possible. In other rooms, you may prefer to completely block the light out at certain times of the day. Keeping your preferences in mind for the amount of natural light that is let into a room can help ensure you purchase the right blinds for each room.

It can be helpful to make notes about your natural light preferences for each room in which you will be installing your new sunscreen rollers. For example, you may want more natural light in the bathroom or kitchen than you do in your living room, bedroom, or den. The right sunscreen roller blind will diffuse the outdoor light to your specific preferences while reducing indoor glare and the number of ultraviolet rays that enter your home.
