Are Zebra Blinds Blockout?
The simple answer is yes, they can be made with blockout or room darkening fabrics!
This gorgeous blind type, Zebra Blinds, comes from the Roller Blinds family and as such comes in similar fabric options, from light filtering to blockout shades and from lighter neutral shades to bold brighter shades.Zebra Blinds can be fully rolled up for a clear view of the outside and when rolled down, the fabric sits flat against the window for a light blocking or room darkening effect.
What does the blockout Zebra Blind do?
Good question? It really does darken your room! You really need to think if near to complete room darkening during the day is a must or not. Both blockout and light filtering fabrics give you privacy options during the day and night. The main difference is that during the day, blockout fabrics can provide near to complete room darkening whereas, the light filtering fabrics will allow for some filtered light to enter through during the day. The blockout Zebra Blinds are generally good for bedrooms where early morning light may be an issue and light filtering fabrics are great for living areas as they make the area feel energetic and look bigger during the day. If consistency is desirable, light filtering or blockout Zebra Blinds go well throughout the house including glass sliding doors.
Blockout Zebra Blinds trend in Australia?
Zebra Blinds are in trend and has been the buzzword in the window furnishings industry for quite a few years. What makes them special is the specially made advanced fabric. Although the fabric sits flat against the window like a roller blind, if desirable you can still maintain the view outside while maintaining privacy. How is this possible, right? It’s because, unlike a traditional roller blind, when a Zebra Blind is in rolled down position, the mechanism allows for horizontal fabric slats to move vertically and adjust the amount of light entering the room, while maintaining the view through the sheer fabric layer. Of course, the fabric slats can be aligned in closed position, allowing privacy and full light control like a roller blind. It gives you the flexibility of a venetian blind in a fabric roller blind with adjustable slat style light control.
