Which blinds let in most light?

In some circumstances, our customers are limited as to what they can do to dress their window while ensuring they don’t lose too much light. This is usually due to the room being north-facing or the build style causing the room to have limited natural light. Balancing privacy and light loss will therefore depend on the fabric and blind type.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a quick and popular way to control light in a room. These blinds can be opened fully to neatly sit on one or both sides of the window and the fabric vanes or slats can be tilted to allow as much light through as desired.

Shutters

Shutters are a visually stunning way to add privacy and light control to a window. They can either be the full length of the window or halfway, and the slats add charm and style in addition to light control.

If need be, the doors can be also be fully opened to allow in the light and bring the view outside back into focus.

Day and Night Blinds

Our Day and Night vision blinds are a blend of the popular roller blinds and slatted Venetian blind style.  
These specialised roller blinds are great at giving the user more control over the light while also offering great privacy control.
The blind can be rolled down into its closed position (‘night’) to block out the light, or positioned so the light still comes between the solid pieces (‘day’).

Wooden Blinds

Wooden blinds offer privacy and light control, while the wide choice in slat sizes, wood finishes and styles make this blind a popular choice.

The smooth tilt control lets the user choose the exact amount of light into the room while ensuring privacy is kept to a maximum.

Light can be allowed to pour into the room if the blind is fully open, which makes this choice one of the most versatile.

Roller Blinds

If the right fabric is used, roller blinds can allow a lot of light into the room.
Voiles or ‘screen’-style fabrics are a mesh-like material that can resemble a net curtain.  
If used correctly, these fabrics are great at allowing light through the room but also create a cooling effect.  


Our specialist fabrics such as Screenview are also flame retardant and are highly recommended in hot offices or industrial spaces where equipment needs to be kept cool.
