About Double Roller Blinds
Double roller blinds are a type of blind that combines a Holland blind and a sunscreen roller blind in a dual bracket. This allows you to have the sunscreen blind lowered during the day and the Holland blind lowered down over it at night. The Holland blind component is often made from a block out fabric that eliminates all light from entering the home.
Double Roller Blinds are Versatile and Practical
Double roller blinds are becoming incredibly popular as they are simply more versatile and practical than a singular roller blind. During the day, you can have the sunscreen blind partially or fully lowered in order to filter the UV rays and glare from the sun out, allowing you to have light in your home without any unpleasant side effects. The sunscreen blind also allows you to see out during the day, preserving your views and a sense of openness in the home.
At night time, you can lower the Holland blind (which, as previously stated, is commonly made from a block out fabric) in order to stop the light from traffic, streetlights, neighbouring homes and other sources from entering through the window and disturbing you. It also gives you complete privacy when the blind is fully lowered.
Double Roller Blinds are Beautiful
As well as being practical, double roller blinds are also very aesthetically appealing. They have sleek, clean lines that closely fit to the window, making them perfect if you like simpler, or more minimalistic styles. There is also a huge range of different fabrics to choose from for both the outer Holland blind and the inner sunscreen blind. The outer Holland blind can be made in just about any colour or pattern you can think of as long as it is available in a fabric. The inner sunscreen blind is available in a range of solid colours that you can coordinate with the outer blind.
