Window coverings transform a house into a home, making it crucial to find a style that matches your style while still fulfilling your functional needs. If you’re currently exploring window treatment options, you may want to look into custom room darkening zebra blinds.
Named after the zebra because of their stripped patterns, zebra blinds are made from alternating translucent and room-darkening materials. These dual sheer stripes are designed for precision light control, allowing you to transform your interiors from light to dark or vice versa in a second. So, while they maintain the look of traditional blinds, they offer more flexibility in operation as they merge the functioning of blinds and shades.
Here are a few reasons you will love custom room darkening zebra blinds. Visit us today to build your custom blinds!
Zebra blinds have the drape of curtains and the adjustable stripes of blinds. They are versatile in terms of colour and style. Because of this, they can be customized to fit any interior décor style. From muted neutrals to bold hues, you don't have to settle for the traditional black-and-white colours of the zebra. And you can play around with a variety of textures and patterns as well. Zebra blinds are highly customizable, coming in different levels of opacity to suit your needs. They're a great option for any room because they can be tailored to meet the requirements of any space.
Sometimes you want to access the outdoors without feeling exposed. Custom room darkening zebra blinds offer you the best of both worlds. Overlap the opaque stripes to allow just the right amount of light and overlap the light stripes to darken your room. This way, you get to adjust the amount of light and privacy to your needs. It's important to mention that the sheer stripes provide glare reduction and UV protection benefits as well. As such, your furnishings are protected from fading, and you no longer have to deal with that annoying afternoon glare.
What’s more, zebra blinds can work as blackout shades. Because they are made from alternating opaque and sheer stripes, opting for opaque blackout fabric gives you the benefit of blackout blinds without long-term commitment.
Zebra blinds are designed to reduce heat gain in summer. In winter, the air between the blind and the window traps heat, thereby reducing the amount of energy it takes to keep a room warm. What’s more, they can save even more energy when open and closed at the right times of the day. Opening your blinds allows sunshine and, thereby, heat to come into your home, while closing has the opposite effect. So, it may be a good idea to keep your blinds halfway closed on a hot summer afternoon. With custom room darkening zebra blinds, you have full control over how much sunlight you let into your home.
Say goodbye to the cords and make adjusting your blinds easy and convenient. With motorization, you can raise and lower your blinds at the touch of a button. Integrating your window coverings into your smart home hub, you can have the added convenience of operating your blinds from anywhere as long as you have your smartphone with you.
