From influencing your mood and transforming a room's atmosphere to controlling temperature and handling your UV protection, the amount of light we let in or shut out can make a huge difference to a room.
In terms of the most precise form of control over your lighting environment, blinds are by far the best option. To shed some light on why blinds are the champion of the lighting arena, we’ve listed a few key considerations below.
What Blinds Can Bring to Your Lighting Environment
Just like a dimmer switch can help adjust light levels to create different moods or atmospheres, the angle of your blind slats can be adjusted to allow just the right amount of light in to help you create the perfect mood for the moment.
Light control and temperature control go hand-in-hand. The more control you have over your lighting environment, the easier it is to manage a rooms temperature.
And blinds give you the freedom to block out as much sun as you want or allow in all the warmth-giving light you desire - which ultimately decreases your dependence on energy-demanding heaters and coolers (read our blog about our KFC head office installation to see how our heat-reflecting blinds helped reduce the offices’ energy consumption).
Pretty much every part making up our blinds can be customised to improve your level of light control. On products such as our Vertical Blinds, the overlaps between vanes can be widened for increased privacy and sun protection. For products like our Lantex Fabric Venetian Blinds, you can choose between translucent and room darkening fabrics. And what’s more, you can motorise most of our Windovert blinds to make it that much easier to take charge of your lighting environment at the touch of a button!
