What is a Night and Day blind? Well, it's a type of roller blind, but featuring two fabric layers, which are made up of stripes of semi-see-through and block fabric. These stripes can be aligned or alternated to allow different levels of light into the room. The semi-see-through voile fabric is known as the day blind, and the impermeable block fabric is known as the night blind.

Night and Day blinds are best known for their unique opening mechanism that offers excellent light control and a distinct light fall effect. The unusual make up of this roller blind offers Night and Day blinds some excellent advantages over other types of blind.

1) Custom privacy

One of the best things about Night and Day blinds is that they can let light in while stopping people from seeing in, for daytime privacy without compromising on sunlight. To enjoy the benefits of this system, use the control chain to close the blinds to your desired height, and then slowly continue pulling the chain until the day and night panels align as you wish.

The semi-sheer 'day blind' voile panel is also available in a few different weightings, so you can further customise views in and out from your window.

2) Precision lighting

Hand in hand with customisable privacy come flexible lighting levels. Night and Day blinds don't roll down blocking all light in the way traditional rollers do, but instead feature graceful shifting stripes down the body of the fabric that create changing shafts of light. To take advantage of this, first close the blind to suit your needs with the control chain. To adapt the light levels of the blind, simply continue pulling on the control chain to shift the alignment of the day panels and the night panels. You will be able to see the difference in light fall immediately - from full shade coverage to bright illumination and everything in between.

3) An alternative to venetians

Before Night and Day blinds, venetian blinds were the go-to option for people looking to enjoy sunlight within closed blinds. While venetians are a good option, Night and Day blinds offer the same precision illumination advantages, and are arguably even easier to operate.

Additionally, Night and Day blinds have a very different style that suits a different interior. This blind style is better for modern, minimalist room designs. Venetian blinds have a traditional look that can pair well with luxe interiors and rich fabrics.

4) Light fall effect

Delight everyone from your child to your house rabbit with the gorgeous light-striping illusion that Night and Day blinds offer. When static with aligned panels, these blinds cast charming shafts of light over your room interior. However, during opening or closing they gorgeous motion sets your room alive with slimming and broadening strips of light and shadow. It's this stunning effect that the Night and Day blind is becoming increasingly well known for. While it's not a problem-solving feature, it certainly offers a memorable and playful light effect. Don't be surprised if visitors get out their video camera to record it!

5) Insulation

An often-overlooked benefit of the Day & Night blind is its thermal qualities. The fabric features a void space between its twin layers that acts as a giant air pocket, trapping air close to the window. The still air warms and helps cushion the home from the cold temperatures outside. As well as making your home more comfortable, this can also save you money on heating.
