Today's roller blinds and roman shades in organic linen fabrics go well in a high end designer
room, unlike Grandmas blinds, they add an element of beauty and function to the room.
|Linen adds a nice texture as shown above|
Additional things to consider - the addition of drapes with blind will "soften" the room,
absorb sound, help with temperature or sun control, and will make the room look larger. See below.
|The above roman shade is a nice alternative to roller blinds|

The feedback we hear is that it's nearly impossible to raise all blinds to the exact same height, We fought with it for 30 minutes for a photo shoot! Also, when raised blinds still block about the 15" to 17" of the sky & trees.
We sell blinds, when people insist......but we hear lots of negative feedback, such as....
- The blinds block our view, even when we open them they block about 17" right at eye level.
- It's almost impossible to get a room full of blinds raised to the same height!!
- They cause a "closed in feeling" almost claustraphobic!
- They made the room feel dark, they block lots more light than I anticipated.
When we provide sheers instead of blinds, this is the feedback we hear:
- The natural organic linens look "softened" the room.
- It's nice that when we open the sheers, we don't block ANY of the view
- I like the light filtering & privacy
- The room feels cozy now, with more of a "finished" look
|sheers go with any style |
When sheers are open they do not block any view or daylight (right photo)
