Factors to Consider When Buying Sunscreen Rollers

Your Privacy Preferences

In addition to how much natural light you want your new roller blinds to allow into your home, it is also important to think about how much privacy you want them to provide. Like natural light, various rooms in your home require different levels of privacy, and you may need to consider different types of fabrics to ensure you feel comfortable in your indoor spaces once your new blinds are hung.

Many sunscreen roller blinds are made from a combination of PVC and polyester. This creative pairing of materials makes for a durable, yet lightweight window treatment. The shade is manufactured in a way that allows you to enjoy the view outside your window and let some natural light in without compromising your privacy. This quality is unique to sunscreen roller blinds, and it is a benefit that traditional curtains and roller blinds cannot provide.

Your Current Decor

If you are shopping for sunscreen roller blinds to replace your old, outdated curtains or Venetian blinds, chances are you already have your home decorated. Unlike homeowners who have just purchased a new home and have the benefit of having a blank slate to start with, you may need to take your current decor into consideration as you are choosing blinds.

As you take a look around your home, note the types of colours and patterns that you tend to gravitate toward. Do you like simple to no patterns and neutral colour schemes, or do you prefer more defined patterns and bold colours? You may be tempted to step outside of your comfort zone and buy a roller blind that is totally different than you previous window covering. If you do so, just be sure that your new window treatments won’t clash with the carpet, furniture, and other design elements in your home.

Your Window Measurements

Finally, you also want to consider the size and shape of each window that you will be buying sunscreen roller blinds for. Buying window treatments would be so easy if all of the windows in your home were the same size, but for most homeowners, that simply is not the case. In fact, you may discover that the living room windows that appear to be the same size can vary by a few inches in height or width.

To ensure that you get exactly what you need, measure the opening of each window you plan on hanging your new roller blinds in. Be sure to calculate the distance from side to side, and from top to bottom in millimetres. If you have many windows that are unusually long or wide, you may need to purchase custom sunscreen roller blinds to ensure that your window treatments block out light sufficiently and provide proper privacy for your indoor spaces.
