Window treatments are a bedroom essential. Nowhere else in your home is privacy, light control and insulation so important.

There are a of different window treatments out there they, and they aren’t all the right choice for your bedroom.
Block-out Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are ideal for bedrooms because of their light blocking capabilities. They are designed as a single panel and when professionally fitted will sit extremely close to your window, offering maximum privacy and blocking out any unwanted light. If you have any light seepage in the corners of your windows, this can easily be fixed with some blinds tape.
Roller blinds are a popular bedroom option because they are unobtrusive and discreet. Selecting a neutral shade can help you to ‘blend’ the blinds in with your room, which means they won’t impinge on your other décor or the overall style of your bedroom.

Double Roller Blinds
