Bright Electric Roller Blinds

If your home has large expanses of glass, that perhaps dominate most of one or two walls, adding remote control blinds gives you a great opportunity to change the whole look and feel of a room just with the touch of a button. But it’s not just a case of changing the amount of light coming into a room, or even blocking out the outdoor space to create a more intimate atmosphere. The colour and texture of the roller fabric can transform a space, complementing or contrasting with your other furnishings. They could make it a bright, energetic space or a dark, relaxing room. In a sense, you could think of your large roller blind as a kind of feature wall that you raise or lower to suit your mood. Photographers use white and metallic surfaces to reflect and complement their lighting when taking pictures. Inversely they use black surfaces to absorb light. If you’re using large expanses of a colour it’s worth knowing how it will affect the lighting, both natural and electric, in the room. Here are a few tips for choosing the shade and colour of your electric blinds. It’s worth noting that electric roller blinds provide more opportunities for unbroken expanses of colour with single spans of fabric. Be bright Bright, zesty colours work well in communal spaces where you want the atmosphere to be friendly and spacious. They can also give a room a sense of energy and can help put you in a good mood. When the weather isn’t so great outside or it’s getting dark a bright colour will keep things fun, friendly and lively. If you want to go bright, bathrooms and kitchens work well in vibrant colours, while a splash of colour in your home office will help keep your energy levels up. Go dark Dark, sober colours can give a room a real sense of sophistication. Contrasted with light coloured walls they can make a bold statement and transform a light airy space into a more intimate one. Effectively giving the same space two different ‘personalities’ to suit your mood. With this new sense of intimacy you can create a romantic or relaxed atmosphere, which makes it ideal for bedrooms. But like the photographer, you can use dark coloured powered blinds as a blackout for part of your home cinema set up in your living room. Not only will it block out the light but a dark shade will also subdue the lighting in the room, letting you focus on the big screen.
