A new trend that is becoming increasingly popular, is installing sheer curtains over a blockout roller blind. When it comes to planning your window treatments it is important to remember that all rooms have different needs and this combination can work particularly well in living rooms and bedrooms.

As there are many choices in the market today, you will benefit from talking to a colour and interiors expert who can guide you on choosing colours and fabrics that will complement your existing style and furnishings. One window furnishing option that our interior design experts love to use at Newcastle Curtains & Blinds, is to use sheer curtain with a practical blockout roller blind. You can’t go past a sheer curtain … they offer a beautiful softness to any room and will work naturally with your interior style.

Benefits Of Using Sheer Curtains & Roller Blinds

A sheer curtain offers you privacy during the day, as well as offering a beautiful softness to the room. The roller blind will offer a thermal solution to combat the heat and cold and will offer privacy at night.  This combination offers great light filtering and thermal solutions. Curtains and roller blinds are also far less maintenance, with only a gentle vacuum being required, unlike shutters and venetian blinds which gather an obvious film of dust on the blades.curtain-fabrics-made-to-measure-1

If you have a narrow window, or are short on space a curtain with lining is the perfect solution. You can also coordinate the same sheer in another part of the room that may have a larger window frame. It is totally ok to have some windows with thermal blockout linings and some with thermal blockout roller blinds. Another way of achieving a similar result, would be to use a sunscreen blind with a blockout drape.

There are many options when it comes to choosing your window furnishings.  Sheers come in a large range of colours and textures to suit any style of homes from heritage homes to modern contemporary properties. Block out blinds also come in lots of colours, textures and patterns to suit your home.
