These stylish roller shade blinds are popular among our blind solutions. Sunscreen shades let you see outside while softening harsh sunlight – ideal blinds for conservatories, cafes, or rooms with a view. Blackout shades keep light out in daytime and heat in at night – saving power.
“Sunscreen” Protecting privacy and furnishings while enjoying a full view
Our window shade blinds enable the best of both worlds – enjoying the great vistas outside while stopping anyone seeing inside. They filter sunlight and damaging uv rays, preserving the rich colours and fresh condition of furnishings and floor coverings.
“Sunscreen” Avoiding the need for artificial light – saving power
As effective solar/sun blinds, they can let enough light in to make artificial lighting unnecessary, saving on power bills, without having to squint in the brightness.
“Blackout” Ideal for sleeping during the day
Our blackout roller blinds have special light-blocking properties, ensuring unwelcome light is kept out. They are ideal for shift workers or those who sleep during the day – especially in the summer months – or parents who want their children to sleep in the early evening or through to late morning.
Blackout blinds with great insulation to save heating costs
These blackout blinds conserve heat at night, retaining the warmth generated by wood burners, gas or electric heaters. They can also keep things cool indoors during the summer months, saving cooling costs.
Chic designer colours and textures to match a wide range of decor
These window shades can cater for classic or contemporary, subtle or bold, in light or dark colours to work with any space.
