5 Ways Roller Blinds Can Make Your Home More Comfortable

The goal of any homeowner is to have a home that is comfortable, contemporary and aesthetically pleasing. Although it may seem easy to achieve, it’s a lot harder than it sounds. At Empire Window Furnishings, we pride ourselves on our roller blinds – they are more than just sleek and modern, they provide the utmost comfort to residents.

When it comes to window furnishings, there are many options on the market, making it difficult to select which option is most suitable for your lifestyle. However, there’s a reason that roller blinds are one of the most popular window furnishings – they are practical.

Comfort is the most important quality to search for when choosing window furnishings. So how can our roller blinds improve the comfort of your home?

Block intense sunlight in bedrooms, living rooms and offices

While sunlight is certainly valuable at times during the day, it can also be a bother. Whether intense sunlight is waking you up too early or creating a disturbing glare in your office, our roller blinds will be able to help.

Our roller blinds come in both light-filtering and blackout fabrics – Light-filtering does not block out the sun’s rays completely, but instead, dims its effect and lets some light through, recommended for offices or living rooms as it does not darken completely. Blockout fabric is perfect for anyone who needs to sleep in darkness, it will completely block sunlight and artificial lights from disturbing your sleep.

Improve the natural light in rooms

If you have a window but have been blocking it out with heavy curtains or even roller blinds that are made with blockout fabric, then you may be doing yourself a disservice! Natural light can make a room appear larger and improve your energy efficiency. Installing our roller blinds with sheer or translucent fabrics will dim the light in your rooms and prevent it from being too harsh, while also allowing you to benefit from an illumination of the room.

Provides insulation during summer and winter

Summers in Sydney are incredibly hot while winter is extremely cold making insulation necessary to keep your homes comfortable during each season. Our roller blinds with insulation make the summers cooler and the winters warmer, thereby improving your comfort all year round.

This is particularly helpful for the number of homes in Sydney that don’t have electric cooling and heating systems. Insulation also helps to improve the energy efficiency of homes which can ultimately lead to a reduction in your utility bills.

Offers privacy

Whether you choose our: light-filtering, blockout, translucent or sheer fabrics for your roller blinds, we can guarantee you that each will provide some level of privacy which is extremely necessary for your bedroom, living room and bathroom.

For bedrooms and bathrooms, we often recommend roller blinds with light-filtering or/and blockout fabrics as this affords you the highest level of privacy. Our sheer fabric is best used for the living room where you need only a slight blurring of your home and can still benefit from natural light. You’ll never have to worry about your privacy with our products.

Benefit from quick automated control

We know how difficult it can be to get up from a comfortable and relaxing position to adjust your blinds. Our motorised roller blinds allow you to control your blinds at any point, they can either be battery-operated, hardwired with remote control or automated for your convenience.

These are best utilised in a bedroom or living room, as you would want easy and quick control of your blinds. All of our fabric options are available with motorised blinds.
