Net curtains are useful for providing an extra layer of privacy at the window, especially during the day. But with many of us considering them outdated, we’re often asked for modern ways to provide that same effect. Our  Roller blinds range includes a fantastic selection of new ideas to protect your modesty.

A touch of silver

Our Zimmer Silver Roller blind is a great modern alternative to traditional net curtains when dressing wide windows like those in this bedroom. Effortlessly slipping into the neutral setting in a flash, the effect is a contemporary, calm décor with just the faintest hint of excitement. A touch of blush pink warms up the darker grey tones of the room for a cool but cosy finish.

Home office chic

A home office is the perfect place to experiment. Using the ‘new neutrals’ palette of off white, pale peach, blush pink, burnt orange and maroon, Rivara Plaster is bang on trend, perfect for injecting warmth and vibrancy into this contemporary space. We love the soft paint brush strokes of the design, and crisp white background that allows for just the right amount of sunlight. We chose a turret style hem for that extra special look.

Serene sheers

Perfect privacy

Of course, if you’re looking to inject a little colour into your home, our lighter weight fabrics are also available in striking shades. We've freshened up this bedroom with a lovely springtime feel by combining white and pastel blue with the cheery shade of yellow from the Polly Honey Roller blind. The pretty floral pattern on the creamy backdrop lets the natural light filter through into the room while still providing the privacy you'd expect in the most personal room of your home.
