With the new year fast approaching, it’s a time for reflection, resolutions, and celebrations. While there are many ways to usher in a new year, nothing quite beats making some changes around the home to represent the upcoming year of possibilities.
One great way to easily transform your home with minimal fuss is to invest in some new blinds. The new year is the perfect time for new blinds, as there are generally great deals to be found, with plenty of amazing styles of blinds to choose from.
A style of blinds that are becoming incredibly popular are day and night blinds. They offer plenty of benefits and are being viewed by many as a serious upgrade to venetian and wooden blinds.
What are day and night blinds?
Day and night blinds come with a unique design that combines two types of blinds – roller and venetian. It works by using two distinct types of fabric, one that is a solid block of colour with a slatted design (like venetian blinds) and another that is a single section of transparent fabric (similar to a roller blind).
These two layers of fabric are both adjustable, allowing for varying levels of transparency through the blinds. This is very handy, as you can get plenty of privacy without sacrificing any light, with options to make the blinds opaque, voile (semi-transparent), or fully raised like a roller blind – talk about versatility!
Reasons to invest in day and night blinds this new year
Day and night blinds come in a variety of designs, making it easy to find a stylish option for your home. As they use two separate layers of fabric, there is a great opportunity to combine your favourite colours or colours already featured in your current décor, with an endless selection of colours, fabrics, and textures to choose from.
Better still, they can be used in many rooms throughout the home! Whether it’s bedrooms, hallways, offices, living rooms or dining rooms, day and night blinds are a fine addition to most rooms in your home.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of day and night blinds is their ability to control the natural light of a room. As one layer of material is a sold block and the other is transparent, they combine to create an adjustable blind that can allow as much or as little light through as you desire.
For example, you can block out all the light by closing the slats over to produce an opaque style, or adjust the slats so that more natural light comes through without blinding you. Because they are styled like a roller blind, you can even raise the blinds to allow all the light through, highlighting just how much control they offer over light levels of a room.
Unless day and night blinds are raised, they offer great privacy while still allowing light to come through. Because one of the layers is transparent, it lets light pass through but still makes it difficult to see through for anyone walking buy.
This offers unrivalled privacy without having to fully block out the light, which is often the case with the likes of roller and roman blinds.
