If you’re looking to hang sunscreen roller blinds within your home than now is the time to start thinking about what options you have to choose from and how you can implement them the best in your home. Sunscreen roller blinds offer some of the best sun blocking techniques which can allow you to significantly reduce the light exposure from any living area or bedroom. So now that you have decided to buy, what are some things that you should consider?
It’s the age old question that is always at the top of everyone’s list of things to consider. Your budget is extremely important to any purchase and purchasing sunscreen roller blinds is no different. To determine your budget, firstly count the windows within your home that will need have window treatments installed. Divide the number of windows you have by your allocated budget and this will allow you to have a cost per window treatment. Sunscreen roller blinds can range quite widely in price and they are not all the same, this means that the price can fluctuate quite a bit. However, if you have a desired price range than the roller blinds can usually be tailored to your budget.
How much light do you need to block out?
Each room in your house is exposed to light in different ways at different times. Some rooms within your home will want as much lighting as possible for as long as possible however, some rooms you will want no light at all. It’s important to understand how much light you want in the room and how much the room is getting. If you are home on a weekend an easy exercise to do is to try and spend some time in each room at different times of the day. Take note of how the room feels temperature wise and how much light is coming through the windows. Do this at 10am, 12:30pm and 3:00pm or sunset. Once you know what you need for each room it will make your shopping experience a lot easier. Not every window in your house needs the same window finishing.
