Metallic-blinds-Fabrics

The type of fabric that you choose for your blinds can make a real difference to the look of a room. When you go for shiny or metallic materials not only do they affect the way that natural and electric light can behave in your home, but they can also create a very dynamic colour palette. For instance, when your electric blinds open and close a lot of sumptuous, velvety fabrics will shine and shimmer chameleon-like as they fold or turn. So luxurious red Roman blinds might appear to have light red and pink tones or dark green blinds can shimmer with a flash of mint. In this way even the simplest of colour choices can appear more dynamic. Alternatively, you can go for subtler effects when you choose a roller blind. A wide range of the fabrics we stock also have metallic or shiny details. So even a light coloured blind can have some detail that catches the light and brightens a corner of a room. A lot of the fabrics available for our vertical and roller blinds also have a sheen or threads of metallic fabric running through them to create texture and dynamic qualities in the light. But it’s our range of venetian blinds that really catch the light. They come in a number of shades, including metallics, and also have a gleaming finish that really shines. This makes them ideal for modern, clean spaces and particularly kitchens and bathrooms. When you add that to our remote control options, which allow for small incremental adjustments and a variety of settings, not only are you controlling the light coming into the room but also how the light hits the blind itself. To make the most of these fabrics you should consider how the lighting in your room is positioned and how it reflects of the blind.
