What are light filtering blinds?
Light filtering blinds are window coverings that allow some light to pass through while still providing privacy and reducing glare. There are many different types of light filtering blinds available, each with its own set of benefits. Rolli offers both light filtering and blackout blinds for the same price.
The benefits of light filtering blinds
There are many benefits to having light filtering blinds in your home. They can help reduce glare, provide privacy, and even help keep your home cooler in the summer months. Many people are opting for light filtering blinds while working from home to assist with their zoom calls. Light filtering blinds won't keep the sun completely out while you sleep, so they are often preferred for every room outside of the bedroom.
Light filtering blinds are an excellent choice for a variety of situations, including:
Living rooms: Light filtering blinds can help to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in a living room by allowing natural light to enter the room while still providing privacy.
Kitchens: Light filtering blinds can help to brighten up a kitchen by allowing some light to enter the room while still providing glare reduction on countertops and appliances.
Offices: Light filtering blinds can help to reduce glare on computer screens and improve visibility in an office setting.
Bedrooms: Light filtering blinds can provide some natural light while still maintaining privacy in a bedroom.
They can be custom-made to fit any window size and can be installed either inside or outside the window frame.
How do light filtering blinds work?
When closed, light filtering blinds allow a small amount of light to enter the room while still providing privacy. While they don’t block out all light, light filtering blinds are effective at reducing the amount of sunlight that enters a room. This can help to reduce the amount of heat that builds up in the room and make it more comfortable to spend time. Light filtering blinds can also help to reduce the amount of glare on television screens and computer monitors. They are available in a variety of materials, including wood, faux wood, aluminum, and vinyl and polyester.
Rolli offers polyester woven blinds at optimal light filtering woven for privacy, glare and heat reduction, while still allowing enough light into your home.
The disadvantages of light filtering blinds
Like all window treatments, light filtering blinds have both advantages and disadvantages. When deciding if light filtering blinds are the right choice for your home, it's important to weigh the pros and cons. Some of the disadvantages of light filtering blinds include:
They let in some light. As the name suggests, light filtering blinds filter light rather than block it out completely. If you're looking for a window treatment that will completely darken a room, light filtering blinds are not the best option.
They're not as effective at insulating a room as blackout blinds. Because light filtering blinds allow some light to pass through, they're not as good at keeping heat in or out of a room. If you live in an area with extreme temperatures, light filtering blinds might not be the most energy-efficient option.
Overall, light filtering blinds are an excellent choice for anyone looking to allow some natural light into a room while still maintaining privacy and reducing glare.
