Privacy & Room Darkening – What Are The Popular Options?

Understanding the difference between Double Roller Blinds, Sheer Curtains and Blockout Roller Blinds, and Double Curtains

Window furnishings play an important role in setting the tone and mood of any room in a home. The bedroom, living spaces, and home office in particular, require privacy during the day and complete room darkening for a good night's sleep. As such, choosing the right window furnishings is crucial for achieving the desired ambiance and functionality in these rooms.

Tiptop blinds Blinds offers a range of options for customers renovating or building new homes and for architects and interior designers specifying window furnishings for their clients. One of the most cost-effective and popular options available is the double roller blind. Double roller blinds are two blinds on one bracket, with a sheer roller blind in the front and a blockout roller blind behind it. This allows for privacy during the day and complete room darkening at night. A variety of fabrics, including contemporary colors, textures, and linen-looking fabrics, are available for viewing at the tiptop Clayton showroom. Choosing the right fabric can turn a simple double roller blind into a sophisticated window furnishing option.

Another popular choice for window furnishings in bedrooms, living spaces, and home offices is the combination of sheer curtains and blockout roller blinds. The sheer curtain adds softness, warmth, and elegance to the space, while the blockout roller blind provides privacy and complete room darkening when needed. This option is more affordable than the double curtain, which is a sheer curtain with a lined curtain behind it.

Double curtains, on the other hand, offer more room darkening and complete blockout of the sun and light. They are also more elegant, making the room feel like a luxurious hotel. However, they are more expensive than the sheer curtains and blockout roller blinds combination.

When considering the benefits of each option, it is important to take into account the desired ambiance, functionality, and budget. The sheer curtains and blockout roller blinds combination is a good choice for those who are looking for a balance between affordability and functionality, while double curtains are better for those who prioritize room darkening and seeking a high-end finish.
