by tuiss :: Bottom up roller blinds

With their intriguing name you could be forgiven for wondering what a bottom-up blind actually is! Quite simply this type of blind works from the bottom up; the roll of fabric sits towards the window sill and is then raised through a simple pulley system to the top.

The advantage of this blind is that it creates privacy at the bottom and then allows the light to flood in at the top. Bottom up blinds are ideal for rooms that are overlooked, whether they be rooms next to a busy street or rooms up high that are overlooked by other tall buildings.

Before the advent of bottom up blinds the most popular solution to creating privacy has been to lower the blinds or close the curtains. The only problem with this has been that you end up sitting in the dark! Now you can raise the blind from the bottom therefore keeping the room private but still allowing light through at the top. You can happily sit in a light and bright room right next to the street, maybe watching TV or sipping coffee, while pedestrians pass by completely unseen.

These blinds are also a great solution to cutting down the glare on screens but still allowing some light to enter the room.

Available with standard fabric or blackout fabric these blinds are suitable for both living areas and rooms such as bathrooms. A blackout bottom up blind will ensure that bathrooms are lovely and light but privacy is protected with no outlines or shadows showing through to the outside world.

by tuiss :: White designs roller blinds

Our new collection of White Design roller blinds is just so gorgeous that we have to shout about it. All the blinds in the collection are white and feature a pattern of tone on tone white, simple yet so very effective.

So crisp, fresh and elegant; white blinds are all this and more. The White Designs collection adds just a little patterning too, a wonderful blend of simplicity and design that’s perfect for creating a tranquil feel with character.

These blinds look fantastic at the window and they are also an ideal replacement for net curtains. Net curtains are on the decline but what to replace them with? A white blind from this collection, particularly a voile blind that still allows a view through is just the thing. Take a look at the Karelli White Voile or maybe the Trellis All White Voile blind if you prefer a floral pattern at the window.

Other blinds such as Foliole Ghost or Calla Purity don’t offer a view through but will gently shade a room.

If you are thinking of replacing your nets then we would also recommend a screen roller blind, during the daytime these still allow a view through but keep the inside of your home private.

by tuiss :: New patterned roller blinds

We have a spring in our step at the moment and can’t help but bring you new blinds! This week’s newbies are patterned roller blinds. Roller blinds are a very cost effective way of dressing the window and what’s more they look great too.

Pattern and design are an important part of creating a room’s look. Here’s an idea though, rather than committing to a wall with statement wallpaper a patterned roller blind can be a stylish alternative. It’s a quick way to add instant style to a room and if you fancy a change it’s a lot less messy than stripping wallpaper!
