Bright ideas to help you filter the summer sunshine
A few of our favourite ways to filter the sun.
A good dose of sunshine is good for the soul. But too much sun shining in through your windows can create an uncomfortably warm environment, unwanted glare on TV and computer screens and painful, strained eyes.
But with the right blinds or shutters you can make the most of the sunshine and stay comfortable. We’re here to show you how…
Here’s a really smart solution all in one innovative design. Day and Night EnlightTM Roller blinds are made up of two fabric layers – one opaque and the other translucent. The layers slide over each other to give you the option of creating different effects at the window. Choose the fully translucent option to fill your room with shimmering light, and move to the opaque position if the sun becomes too bright.
Set the mood
These gorgeous Day and Night TransitionTM Pleated blinds are hugely flexible, giving you tremendous control over light, temperature and the style of your interior décor. They consist of two fabrics built into one blind. You can select different fabrics to suit your specific requirements, for example mixing a sheer fabric for the day and a blackout fabric for night time. You can even create different moods throughout the day by combining two contrasting colours.
Even a simple Roller blind can give you tremendous flexibility and control over light. Sun worshippers should choose a sheer fabric to take the edge off the full rays of the sun, while still allowing loads of light into the home. However, if the early morning sun disrupts your sleep, you can make an exception in the bedroom by choosing a Roller blind in a blackout fabric.
