Coloured Blackout Blinds

Introducing our coloured blackout blinds range. Block is a premium plain, blackout fabric with a simple, matt, cotton texture.  Block is available in a diverse range of 41 versatile colours.  In a bedroom a blackout window blind ensures a peaceful and uninterrupted nights sleep by excluding any light from outside, in a home office or living room a blackout blind helps to prevent glare on computer, tablet or television screens.  Block also provides complete privacy when the blind is down. Unlike many other blackout window blinds, the colour of the coating on the reverse of Block matches the shade on the front of the blind to ensure the blind is as aesthetically appealing from the exterior of your home as it is from the interior. Block blackout blinds also work in a similar way to thermal lined blinds, helping to keep the warmth inside your room due to the thickness of the cloth, ensuring that when the blinds are down they provide not only a stylish window treatment but are also functional and can help to reduce your energy bills.

A laminated roller blind gives your home a soft and inviting look.

  • Linings explained:

    - A cotton lining allows a gentle light to filter through so the texture of the cotton linen is seen during the day and early mornings. It still provides full privacy night and day when drawn down over the window.
    -  A thermal lining works as an energy saving solution as it reflects heat back into the room. The blinds therefore create a stylish room as well as being functional.
    - A blackout lining is a favourite for bedrooms. It provides complete blackout of the sunlight s and provides complete privacy when the blinds are down. It also works like the thermal linings due to its thickness.  Blackout linings are ideal for use in children's bedrooms.

Roller Shades:

Made from pre-stiffened cloths offered as printed, woven or plains. A roller shade can provide privacy but could also be semi sheer as explained below.
- Patterned roller blinds:  we offer a wide range of designs from modern through to classic designs. The fabrics are mid-weight and so provide privacy but allow a gentle light filter to the room.
- Plain coloured roller blinds: we offer plain blinds in a wide range of colours from neutrals through to fun brights. The fabrics are also mid-weight but hese blinds can also be supplied as a back out blind. This collection is called the Eclipse collection. It combines colour with blackout properties and so minimises sunlight  and helps to keep the heat in a room.
- Screen roller blinds are made with semi sheer fabrics.  They will allow a view to the outside during daylight but prevent people looking in. They also reduce glare and UV Rays so are great for sunny rooms or low level rooms to the street. Blinds used with curtains or thicker fabric blinds will provide day time privacy. Used along with curtains or thicker fabric blinds they will also give additional privacy at night.
Our roller blinds are also a better option for kitchens and bathrooms as they are not a natural fibre fabric so do not collect moisture in the same way. Certain options are even better so please do read our blog post on bathrooms and kitchens to see the ultimate choices for these rooms if practicality is top of your choice when choosing a blinds for your home.
