Generally, for blinds, two main types of fabric are used – either a sunscreen fabric that is good for sun protection and filtering of light while simultaneously allowing views to still be appreciated when the blinds are down, or a block-out fabric that is used more commonly in bedrooms for privacy.
“In many situations, though, people use both. For example, in bedrooms, people look at having a twin or dual roller with both a sunscreen blind and a block out blind. The sunscreen blind would be dropped down during the day as a light filter, and then at night the block out blind would be used.”
In regards to fabric choice and aesthetics, the options are almost endless, with anything from very plain materials right through to complex textured options that can create a more traditional look within the realm of modern blinds.
Custom printing is also an option, and one that is often favoured by commercial clients, Clayton says. “Lots of businesses opt to have their logos on blinds, or a company name, or high-definition photography put onto them in restaurant or hospitality settings.”
