Top Benefits of Installing Sheer Blinds in Your Home

Blinds, shades, and curtains are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to window coverings. Every type of window treatment we offer provides an array of benefits, as well as its unique appearance. However, sheer blinds are unique in their own right.

What Is a Sheer Blind?

If you are picturing a fine see-through fabric when you hear the words “sheer blind,” you are not far off the mark. Sheer blinds, however, are not the same as sheer curtains.

 

A sheer curtain is a transparent, thin fabric hung from a curtain rod. Despite filtering some light and providing a degree of privacy, sheer curtains are more about appearance than function.

 

By contrast, sheer blinds combine the aesthetic appeal of lightweight curtains with the practicality of conventional window blinds. Homeowners can choose between sheer fabric and an opaque material to offer different options for room-darkening and light filtration. 

 

We’ve outlined what makes sheer shades stand out from the competition. But why do these window treatments warrant a closer look? Here are a few reasons why you might want to install sheer shades in your home.

They’re Gorgeous

You can use sheer shades to soften a high-contrast space, add whimsy to a room or add more texture to your interior. Their more delicate appearance provides a warmer and less formal look to your home than basic blinds.

They Offer Excellent Light Filtering

Homeowners have a lot of flexibility when it comes to the amount of light they let into their homes. The blinds are essentially two layers of fabric when they’re completely open, so they block out the glare from the sun without making the room appear dark. Light-filtering sheer shades are also an excellent choice for rooms that don’t receive much natural light during the day, due to this feature.

They Give You Privacy

It can often seem as though if you want privacy, you have to sacrifice your views and natural light if you have windows facing other residences or a busy street. Choosing sheer shades means you can have your cake and eat it, too. Even when you’re inside, you can enjoy nature and soak in the sun through the gauzy fabric, but it prevents onlookers from seeing what you’re up to.

They Are Also Effective at Room Darkening

The sheer nature of sheer shades doesn’t mean waking up with the sun is a guarantee when you install them. The secret lies in the construction: The blinds element allows them to block out light nearly as well as blackout shades and traditional blinds, as well as some other unlined window treatments.

You Can Customize Them

Your home’s design can benefit greatly from the use of these window coverings. Choosing sheer shades that match the colour scheme of your room will give your space a casual elegance. At Curtain Master, we offer sheer shades in a variety of neutral tones with a few lovely pops of colour.

 

Blind experts in your area can help you make the right choice no matter what type of window coverings you want—or if you’re having trouble choosing between two different styles or products.

Top 5 Benefits of Clear View Fencing

Traditional fencing solutions are not always the best option. With TopFence, you can find aesthetically pleasing solutions that enhance real-world applications. 

A clear view fence is a type of security mesh fence designed to provide maximum perimeter security and excellent visibility through the mesh. These panels are made rigid and strong with V-bends. A clear view security fence provides a physical and psychological barrier against break-ins and unauthorized entry.

Enhanced Security

Clear View Fencing provides you with a clear view of your premises or property. Small apertures in the fence make it almost impossible to cut through using conventional tools. The fence also has maxi spikes that make climbing impossible. Lastly, the trench in which the fence is laid is dug three meters deep, making digging under the fence impossible.

Economical Solution

Clear View fences are relatively cheaper than steel gate or palisade fencing. We use steel wire mesh to construct the fence, which requires very little material. The only thing you will pay for is labour for installing the fence.

Longevity

If you drive around any neighbourhood in South Africa, you’ll see dozens of broken and rusted fences. A minimum 10-year guarantee comes with every Clear View fence. This fence is weather-resistant. It won’t rust in the rain or wilt in the wind.

 

Options

Clear View fences are not just a one-size-fits-all solution, they can be customized to meet your needs. Here are some examples.

  • PVC coating
  • Galvanized coating
  • Different colours
  • Smaller apertures
  • Anti-tamper bolts
  • Additional security features such as maxi spikes

Aesthetic Appeal

Clear View fencing stands out above the rest without a doubt. Fencing like this is very clean and aesthetic. As its name implies, Clear View is unobtrusive, it doesn’t get in the way, and it can enhance the appearance of any piece of land. Depending on the style and look of your property, you can paint and cover the fence in any colour you like.
