Pleated blinds sometimes called plisse are an attractive and versatile alternative to a venetian or roller blind. The blinds with very slim top and bottom rails draw up to the top of the window very neatly when not required taking up less room than other types of blind. There are two blind types available a free hanging blind for windows and conservatory glass walls and doors and a rectangular skylight blind suitable for glass ceilings and roofs.
Roman blinds are a classic window dressing choice which can bring elegance and sophistication to any room, which is why they remain one of the most popular options for the home. The clean soft lines and pleats of these blinds give an indulgent appearance without the heavy or bulky look which is sometimes created by the more traditional option of curtains. Roman blinds work by gathering panels of material vertical and horizontally with fabric cording. This means that when the blinds are pulled tight they will open allowing light into the room, but when dropped they provide excellent privacy and light exclusion.
Vertical blinds are a great alternative to a traditional Curtains as they offer similar light excluding ability, while offering the extra benefit of tilting to filter natural light into your room while excluding glare. In this way they combine functionality and style to provide excellent sun control for the full length of your window.
Vision Blind are a stylish adaptation of the ever popular traditional roller blind. Vision incorporates an innovative double layered translucent and opaque striped fabric which provide the user with far greater light and privacy control than a standard roller blind. Easy to use by a single side control chain, the woven horizontal stripes slide past each other between the open “translucent – opaque” position and the closed ‘opaque-opaque’ position. The same chain raises and lowers the blind to any height in the window. Vision offers the required balance of light control and privacy whilst making a bold colour blocked statement. The contemporary style and quality finish are set off perfectly by the open top cassette head box which neatly conceals the blind tube mechanism and makes installation simple.
