In the modern world, privacy is more of a concern than it ever was. In this age of computers and stolen identities it can be very easy to overlook a lack of privacy in the home from a much older source: your windows.
Today it’s much more unlikely that your nearest neighbours live a mile away. Even though your neighbours are most likely not an invasion of your privacy, carefully selecting blinds that allow light and defend your home can be a great way of protecting your solitude.
Bottom Up Blinds
Blinds have come a long way and today there are varieties made to tackle the specific problems of the modern day. Bottom up blinds now come with much more control of the tilt and lift functions. Some even have the ability to program pre-set positions so that you can recall your favourites for different times of the day.
Looking for bottom up blinds? We have a wide range of perfect fit and classic bottom up blinds in a wide range of designs and colours to choose from.
A new style of Venetian blind is the top down, bottom up blind. Just as the name implies, this blind gives you the ability to lower the top of the blind downward or raise the bottom of the blind like normal.
This type of blind is especially effective on ground floor windows where you can lower the top of the blind to let sunlight in the top of your window, while keeping the bottom of the window blocked to outside viewers. You can enjoy the positive effects of the sunlight at the same time you protect your privacy.
Blinds or Curtains?
All styles of blinds offer solid advantages over the use of curtains on windows. The various materials that blinds come in will offer much more protection from a privacy standpoint, where as a curtain will always give way the ability to see in to some extent. These same materials will also aid in protection against the damage that sunlight can cause to the finish on floors and furniture much better than the fabric of a curtain can.
