Looking to upgrade your space with some stylish window coverings? Roller blinds are the ideal choice for both residential and commercial spaces.
But with so many types and styles of roller blinds on the market, it’s hard to know what’s right for you.
To simplify your search, we’ve rounded up 4 of the best roller blind models and the spaces they suit best.
Here’s what you need to know.
4 Best Roller Blinds For Your Home Or Business
1. Single Roller Blinds
One of the most popular options available, single roller blinds are a sleek, modern window covering sure to elevate any space. They consist of a single sheet of fabric that rolls up or down, allowing you to easily tailor your light and privacy requirements in an instant.
Helioscreen’s roller blinds are available in an exclusive range of stylish, durable and easy to clean anti-static fabrics. You have the luxury of 17 different fabric choices in a variety of colours, textures and opacities, so there’s something to suit all aesthetics and lighting requirements.
Translucent fabrics are light filtering, offering 24/7 privacy while still allowing sunlight throughout the day. Sunscreen fabrics, on the other hand, reduce heat and glare without losing visibility to the outdoors.
2. Double Roller Blinds
Double roller blinds, also known as day-night blinds, combine two fabric rolls in a single, slimline bracket. They typically consist of one light filtering sunscreen or translucent blind and one blackout blind, so you can enjoy varying levels of privacy and light control throughout the day and night.
The versatility of double roller blinds makes them a great window covering for living rooms, bedrooms, nurseries, restaurants and cafes. Providing a double layer of insulation, they also enhance the energy efficiency of a building, keeping spaces cool in summer and retaining warmth during winter.
3. Blackout Blinds
For spaces where light block and privacy are important, like bedrooms, boardrooms and living areas, blackout roller blinds are the perfect window covering.
In addition to blocking nearly 100% of sunlight, blackout blinds are great for thermal control. Preventing up to 64% of heat entering the space, they keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter, taking the strain off your HVAC systems.
To prevent light bleed around the edges of your blinds, the best blackout blinds are models with side channels. Helioscreen’s blackout blinds, for example, are made with specially designed headboxes, compressible brush seals and aluminium side channels. They’ll take your space from light-filled to near complete darkness in seconds.
4. External Roller Blinds
When it comes to roller blinds, indoor models aren’t your only option.
Helioscreen’s external roller blinds are a great alternative to indoor roller blinds. They’re designed to control the entry of natural light, heat and glare from the outside.
External roller blinds have the ability to repel up to 90% of heat from entering your space, offering welcome relief from Australia’s long, harsh summers.
Helioscreen’s external roller blind fabric comes in a range of classic and contemporary colours to suit any façade. Made from fibreglass core fabrics, our external roller blinds are designed to take the toughest of treatments and boast one of the strongest tear strengths on the market.
The fabrics are also anti-static for easy cleaning, anti-fungal and fire retardant, providing years of safe, low maintenance use.
Manual Vs Motorised Roller Blinds – What’s Right For You?
Chain operated roller blinds are a simple and effective solution for easy to reach windows in shop fronts, bedrooms, living rooms or offices. They operate via sleek stainless steel chains and are available in either individual or linked systems.
Motorised roller blinds, on the other hand are ideal for large or hard to reach windows in homes, offices or busy restaurants or cafes.
The benefits of motorised roller blinds are endless. They give you complete control over every blind, no matter the height or room, from a single remote, wall switch, or even from your smartphone.
For unbeatable convenience, there’s the option to set timers for your blinds to automatically open and close at certain times of day, reducing indoor temperatures by up to 18%.
