Aesthetics and functionality of roller blinds
It is important to remember that roller blinds in the interior serve not only for its decoration, but also allow maximum use of daylight, and therefore save energy consumption.
Depending on the room and the purposes of its use, the roller blind can provide a complete blackout or, conversely, fill the room with exactly the amount of natural light that is required.
Completely opaque curtains are ideal for a bedroom or study where rest and protection from external stimuli are required; completely transparent or translucent - for a dining room or living room, these rooms should be well lit. Here you can use one more, a special type of roller blinds. These are curtains with a double cloth, where a material of higher density is interspersed with transparent areas.
Combining the coincidence of bands of the same or different density, you can create in the room complete darkness or achieve a scattering effect, when light enters the room through the filter fabric.
In the evening, at dinner, you can choose the position of curtains so that the light from the street does not interfere with communication with the family. And in the daytime translucent fabric slightly "muffles" the sun's rays and creates a cozy atmosphere in the room.
