Roller Blinds – Give me tasteful and minimalist
Luxaflex rollershades and sunscreens create a simple and refined aesthetic and are perfect for modern homes. They are often valued for being more discreet than other window furnishing alternatives, however with a variety of fabric and colours, you can stand out as much as you please. Based on the fabric you choose, Luxaflex sunscreens can be used to provide shade and sun protection without obstructing the view. If preferred, you can block out the sun completely with a blackout rollershade – especially helpful if you are a night shift worker!
Along with most of our other window furnishing options (aside from shutters), roller blinds can also be configured for motorisation. A Luxaflex motorised blind can be installed into your new build or retrofitted into your existing home. All Luxaflex motorised blinds can be set to a timer or controlled by your mobile phone – making them a functional and high tech addition to your home.
If you have a great view or simply don’t want your window furnishings to take over the look and feel of your home, then be sure to choose a Luxaflex rollershade or sunscreen blind.
