Are you wondering about the additional features available before you go shopping for indoor roller blinds? Read on and discover three special features that you can opt for when you buy that new set of interior roller blinds.
Top Down/Bottom Up Feature
There are times when you may wish to have the interior roller blinds partially up (for example, when you need natural light in the room but your window overlooks a busy street). Standard interior roller blinds do not allow you to put them up partially. They are either up, or down. You can buy roller blinds with a top down/bottom up feature so that you can have the chance to raise or lower the interior blinds partially. This feature is very handy for rooms where privacy is needed (such as bathrooms) at the same time when sunlight would be desirable.
You may have very large windows in your house. You may be having limited mobility due to an illness or old age. The windows in your house may be set high. The three situations above are examples of circumstances under which it would be hard for you to operate the manual controls of roller blinds. Instead of buying another type of window covering, buy interior roller blinds that are motorised. You can pick the ones with a remote control so that you can raise or lower the blinds without leaving your seat.
Some interior roller blinds have control cords that remain visible once the blinds are lowered. This can be undesirable to some people who may not wish to see anything dangling in the window. Furthermore, cords may pose a safety risk if you have young children or pets in the home. This is because the children or pets may be entangled in that cord. You can avoid the safety risks and the distractions of cords by buying interior roller blinds that are cordless. Each manufacturer offers a different way of operating cordless blinds so compare several options before you choose what will meet your needs. For example, some respond to a gentle pull or tug in order to go up or come down.
As you can see, different features have been added to the design of interior roller blinds so that the evolving needs of homeowners are met. Ask a supplier of interior roller blinds to take you through the specific special features of the roller blinds that he or she sells so that you pick the interior roller blinds whose features meet your specific requirements.Read More
