Did you know that semi-sheer and translucent fabrics can be coordinated with blackout fabrics making fabric selections easier throughout projects requiring both types of fabrics? We have used this feature on several projects utilizing the translucent fabrics on windows in living areas and offices while using the coordinated black-out color in the bedrooms. Additionally, these fabrics work great on a single window for dual shade applications.
Just so you know, translucent fabrics filter light, and depending on the color and thickness, create lighting effects that can make a room feel light and airy or dramatic and intense. Bringing organic texture to a room, shadows play on the fabric, although there is no direct visibility through it. Light colors will diffuse light so that a room seems to glow, and darker more saturated colors create a color cast that can make a room look like a different place.
Please also know, blackout fabrics are the obvious choice for rooms where media viewing or daytime sleeping happen. When intense morning sun prevents daytime sleep, blackout fabrics provide a beautiful answer. These specialized fabrics allow room darkening because they do not allow light to pass through the fabric at all, resulting in no glow or shadow play, and the highest privacy level.
Of course, we would love to help you coordinate your translucent and blackout fabrics for your roller shade project. Contact us today for a complimentary consultation and thanks for your interest in Latreia Blinds and Shutters!
