Night and Day blinds are a decorative and innovative blind relatively new to the market, but proving to be a very popular choice. Men are fascinated by the mechanism, and us women, well we just think they look good and let’s face it, that’s all that counts!
Practical and Functional; 2 in 1
This blind has the same look as a roller blind but combines the features of both a roller and a venetian blind giving you the ability to control the amount of light or shade entering a room.
The fabric used to make the blinds cleverly combines both translucent and opaque horizontal stripes which roll around a bottom weight to create 2 layers of fabric. The simple operation of the blind allows the stripes of fabric to pass over one another to create various levels of light and shade.
Closing the blind in the “opaque – opaque” position gives complete privacy, whilst the “translucent – opaque” position allows natural light to filter through creating a sophisticated striped effect whilst maintaining a level of privacy.
The blinds themselves can be raised or lowered to partially or fully cover a window, and just like roller blinds they are compact giving a really versatile solution to dressing your window.
These blinds come in a great range of fabrics, from stylish and contemporary neutrals to modern printed designs, from coloured options in matt or shot through with metallic thread to more sophisticated options with tiny pleated finishes, whatever the style of your property there is a fabric to suit.
The standard size of the stripes is approximately 7-8cm which is perfect for a normal sized window. However on a large expanse this can look fussy and for this situation larger striped designs are the perfect solution with stripes up to 20 in depth giving the most amazing effect when lowered.
As an added extra to the blinds, they can be made pre-housed in a clever cover that hides the mechanism, or for a more decorative feature they can be combined with the clean lines of a coordinating upholstered or aluminium finish pelmet.
Adding a metallic chain and decorative counterweight can also add some class, or the blind can be used as the practical part of a more decorative combination with sheers, curtains or dress curtains, even those already installed.
If you think Night and Day blinds might prove a good solution for you, then simply pop to our studio to see the complete range of fabrics and to have a play with the mechanism (particularly suited to husbands!) or give us a call to book a no obligation home visit. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
