If you are looking for a mix of privacy and light needs, it can be quite daunting to choose the right blind that meets the two criteria at once. While some blinds offer perfect light control, they won’t give you the needed privacy; others will give you complete privacy but minimize the amount of light that gets into your interiors.
If you are looking for blinds that can adapt to your light and privacy needs, then you need to consider zebra blinds. In other words, zebra blinds can give you an opportunity to transition from sheer and privacy.
How they work
Zebra blinds are operated using a side chain that allows you to control the shade to block light or to retract the blind entirely so that you can see the outdoors completely. You can adjust these blinds to 3” zebra strip line up to offer you light control, privacy, and insulation. You can also adjust the blinds slightly to align the 2” sheer fabric section to allow more light. The side chains and bottom railing are designed to match. They may also come with a matching cassette valance.
Benefits of the Zebra Blinds
One of the main benefits of the zebra blinds is the extra control that they offer. Whether they are partially or completely closed, you still get the needed privacy against the outside world and still have more shade in your space.
When the blinds are open, you can also control the amount of light that enters your room. The lighter layer of these blinds will allow the light to come through your window and still give you the privacy that you need.
Additionally, zebra blinds come in a variety of designs. You can choose anything from simple white blinds to high-end blinds with decorative fabrics and a mix of strong colors. Whether you are looking for contemporary or classic décor, zebra blinds will never disappoint you.
Installing zebra blinds is a quick and easy task that won’t take much of your time and doesn’t need special expertise. You only need a few basic tools for a typical mini blind installation. Some of the tools that you need to properly install your zebra blinds include:
- A drill
- A pencil
- A tape measure
- A screwdriver
- Appropriate fasteners
You may also need special fasteners to properly install your blinds on a concrete or aluminum fixture. The installation procedure is just the same as other roller blinds.
Once your blinds are installed, you need to test them to ensure that everything is in the right place and working properly. Lastly, you will need to install your avalanches as well as your hold down brackets.
