Following on from our last post about "Blinds that look like shutters", we naturally need to explore zebra blinds.
Sometimes referred to as "day and night blinds" or "sheer roller blinds" these blinds are made from a unique fabric that alternates between wide blockout bands and translucent bands. The blind is double-layered and as both layers slide against each other the fabric bands either stack or coincide. This design allows you to control and maximise your rooms natural lighting and privacy.
As with a standard roller blind, when a zebra blind is fully raised the window has a completely unobstructed view. When a zebra blind is lowered, the horizontal blockout bands partially obscure the view - creating an effect similar to plantation shutter blades or venetian blind louvres. Hence why, some zebra blinds look like plantation shutters. If you want complete privacy, fully close the blind by stacking the blockout fabric bands, completely hiding the window.
Our fabric selections for our Zebra Blinds covers the common interior window furnishing styles. The blockout bands don't have to be a complete blockout fabric either. Our fabric range includes light filtering and sheer fabrics for these blinds, as well as blockout fabrics.
Each Zebra Blind is finished with a full cassette to hide the components at the top, and a bottom rail in a colour to complement your fabric choice.
Zebra Blinds are a standard part of our Riverina Blinds Range. Each blind is custom made in Melbourne and delivered to our Blinds Shop in Wagga Wagga, NSW. From there we supply and install blinds in Griffith, Albury-Wodonga, Wagga Wagga and the surrounding Riverina.
So if you're looking for new blinds and live in or around Wagga, Griffith or Albury, give Riverina Plantation Shutters a call and we will book a home consultation for you.
