Stylish solutions for windows

The practicality and cheerfulness of Roller and Roman blinds makes them particularly suitable for any room in the home.


Roller and Roman blinds are a stylish alternative and one of the most functional ways of managing heat and light. The practicality of roller blinds makes them particularly suitable for any room in the home and are available in a variety of fabrics ranging from light filtering to room darkening. Some blinds - such as a Luxaflex blind with sunscreen option - allow you to enjoy the view while controlling heat and glare.

Colours and Textures
Roller blinds and sunscreens are available in a large variety of colours ranging from bright colours to subtle neutral shades that blend into and complement any decor. Textures vary from earthy hessian style fabrics, through delicately woven patterns, to ultra smooth and easy to clean fabrics.

Always the manufacturer if their fabric is specially designed for high light control or extreme sun conditions. Anything less will fade and yellow, needing to be replaced far sooner than if uv-resistant fabrics were used.



Decorative Scallops
If your taste is a little on the frilly side, a selection of scallops are available to finish off the bottom of the blinds in those rooms where a more delicate appearance is preferred; soft waves or more classically ornate shapes give the blinds an attractive vintage touch.

Special Applications
Not all your window treatment solutions are fair and square, and there are occasions where unusual-shaped windows need to be covered. Check that the manufacturer can meet these requirements. You may need to fasten your roller blind onto the door or window frame, for your swivelling windows, or for glass doors where privacy or sun control is a necessity.

Blockout Blinds
Does baby have trouble sleeping during the day? Or perhaps hubby works nightshift. There are blockout blinds that ensure a high level of room darkening in a blind that is tasteful in appearance yet highly functional.

Internal Roller Screens
If the view outside the window is Table Mountain in all her glory, the last thing you need is a blind that blocks out the view. Now there are blinds that control the glare but keep the view and add that extra stylish finish to a functional but attractive sun control option. Screen fabrics were designed for commercial use where very specific heat control criteria are the order of the day but designers are putting them into even the smartest homes so that the landscaping can be admired while the screen provides privacy and stylish sun control.
