Choosing a well-sync window covering is not that easy, especially when you are going for window blinds. So much variety here for window blinds, enough to create a big mess.
Window blinds can be a mess because they are place-specific. Not every blind is for every place. For instance, consider wood blinds, their supremacy is hard to beat but they are easily outclassed by their replicas in the terms and conditions of handling water.
Real wood can wrap and expand due to water exposure while faux wood can’t. On the same note, there are window blinds that are highly suitable for any place and can fulfill almost all the demands. From decoration to managing someone’s privacy.
One of those Window Blinds is the window zebra blinds. Just for a fact, they are the top hottest and most well-reputed window blinds in Canada. So, let’s take a look and be aware that why you should choose them.
First thing first, window zebra blinds are quite affordable. You’ll be amazed that how on earth, they can be affordable with such an incredible look and spot-on functionality.
Don’t get wrong by their comparatively cheap price tag from some of the major and highly functional window blinds like wood blinds. You can satisfy your mind by the fact that they are not natural.
They are not made up of any natural material, so, obviously, they are synthetic. Made from a material that I find quite unknown in the window coverings industry, I hardly find any covering made from this material. Zebra blinds are made of a very durable and high-end material called PES Polyester.
When PES polyester is here in zebra blinds, durability is just a regular thing. This is one of the major reasons these blinds are ideal for any place with any condition.
Many major window blinds lack there, you’ll find them classy and durable in some places and the same blinds can be a nightmare for someplace. This is not a messy issue for zebra blinds.
They are good to go in any place. Also, a quick fact, is that material is not the only thing that is entirely responsible for durability, design does matter.
In zebra blinds, both the material and design are working astonishingly well in coordination to let you have durability out of them at the very best.
Different And Unique Look
Window zebra blinds are entirely different from almost every standard window blind. Only roller blinds are the ones from which they have some similarities. They are likely a hybrid or not then surely a pro version of roller blinds.
Standard window blinds have slats, neither roller blinds nor zebra blinds have those slats. Due to this, the functionality reduces, not in both of them.
Window zebra blinds have something unique, that only helps them to maintain their functionality but enhances it so high that they can even outclass major types with those slats.
Their functionality is encompassed by their name, zebra. Like zebras, they have a single panel with alternate stripes, but instead of white and black, zebra blinds have solid and sheet stripes, solids are the thick ones and sheers are sheers.
They didn’t done it yet, the uniqueness is not done yet. Due to design, the stripes move horizontally and have an overlap, how? Because of the tubes.
Like I said they are the pro ones of the roller blinds. Roller blinds have one tube at the top, samely zebra blinds have one tube at the top and have the same functionality as like roller blinds.
There is also a second tube which is at the very bottom of the zebra blinds. The single panel with those alternate solid and sheer stripes is looped around the tube and because of the loop, it rolls around the two tubes.
Its rolling makes the stripes moves and overlap because due to the loop around two tubes the single panel tends to have two layers back and forth. Here you can adjust the overlapping by a cord.
Overlapping changes the looks completely. There is a different look, when solid stripes are aligned and when the sheer stripes are aligned.
Privacy And Light Management
If read that above, you have been aware of how mature they are in terms of functionality. Their functionality didn’t just allow them to have a transition in looks but also in maintaining privacy and light.
These blinds can be installed on the sill and even over the sill. Here is a catch. If you are going with ready-made window zebra blinds and didn’t make it find a match that can fit on the sill. Try to have one that is slightly more in dimensions than your window. It’ll cover all the window.
So, how do Window Zebra Blinds manage light and privacy? For ultimate privacy, try to align solid stripes over the sheer stripes, this will block all the possible pass-through for light because sheer stripes are the pass-through for light that now is covered and blocked by solid stripes.
For light and reasonable privacy, align the solid stripes over the solid stripes, and vice versa sheer over sheer. So, now sheer stripes are not blocked and are exposed, there you have light and also reasonable privacy is even there because sheer stripes have an opacity that blurs the vision.
