Roller blinds are not only aesthetically pleasing but also extremely functional and practical window decoration. They are the best protection of your interior against excessive sunlight and provide you with the greatest privacy. We suggest which types of roller blinds you can find on the market and what are the advantages of particular solutions.

Roman blinds

These are nothing else than roller blinds sewn from high quality decorative fabrics. Thanks to their considerable aesthetic value they are a good alternative to the traditional window decoration in the form of a set of curtains. This type of roller blinds can be installed in any room, and when pulled down they create a decorative accordion, being a spectacular window decoration in bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens and even bathrooms. Their great advantage is a big variety – you can choose models made of very decorative materials, but also those more minimalistic and simple, just like in the case of curtains. In addition, they are very easy to keep clean, because it is enough to pull them off the curtain rail or detach the Velcro strip and wash them.

Day and night blinds

An extremely popular solution recently have become also day and night roller blinds. They owe their popularity mainly to the mechanism that makes it possible to freely regulate the amount of light entering the interior by means of strips covering or uncovering a specific part of the window. Thanks to this you can completely control the level of insolation and shading. The most frequently chosen model of day and night blinds are cassette roller blinds. How do they work? They have vertically guided rails thanks to which the fabric of the roller blind is held in one plane and the fabric itself is hidden in a cassette made of durable material.

Thermo-insulated roller blinds

A great proposal for both homes and office spaces are internal heat-insulating roller blinds. These are roller blinds that you will love especially in extremely hot days, because they are made of materials impermeable to sunlight and guarantee almost complete shade, and thus a pleasant chill in the apartment. It is also an extremely aesthetic and minimalistic solution as the thermal blinds protrude only 35mm from the window and no bends are formed on them. Additionally you can easily keep them clean.

Non-invasive roller blinds

The last item on our list of roller blinds which you should pay attention to when looking for the right solution for your home is the non-invasive roller blind. This is one of the simplest and most popular installation systems. These roller blinds are mainly characterized by durability and at the same time they do not damage or dirty the window frames. It is also worth mentioning that they do not interfere with the structure of the window, and their installation as well as the models themselves are available at very affordable prices. They are extremely easy to use, but this does not mean that they protect against strong sunlight worse than slightly more complicated models. So this is a very practical and convenient solution for your home.
