Do Panel Blinds Block the Sun?

Panel blinds are hugely popular and currently, bang-on-trend. They add loads of modern style to any home with their stunning fabric selection and sophisticated look, but just how practical are they? Do panel blinds block the sun? Let the natural light filter through? And what about in the rooms where you want the best of both worlds?

Do Panel Blinds Block the Sun?

Benefits of Panel Blinds

When shopping for blinds, there are a couple of things to consider. First, it's important to decide what your main concerns are. Light control? Privacy? Heat and UV protection? Next, choose the panel blinds that meet all your needs, in one easy-to-use, stylish design!

Translucent panel blinds

Perfect for living rooms or open spaces, translucent panel blinds let you enjoy plenty of energising natural light without sacrificing on your privacy or protection from the sun. The gorgeous translucent fabric shields your family from the sun’s harmful UV rays, whilst at the same time allowing beautiful filtered light to fill your home with life and vibrancy.

Sunscreen panel blinds

An excess of UV rays not only can fade your furniture; it can be extremely harmful to your family and drive up your energy costs. Sunscreen panel blinds are designed to provide unbeatable protection from the sun – offering both UV and heat protection – a big concern for most of us living in Australia. But the best thing about sunscreen blinds? You can see through the fabric when the blind is drawn – so you can enjoy the view outside and stay cool and comfortable inside.

Blockout panel blinds

As their name suggests, blockout panel blinds give maximum light and UV protection, completely blocking the sun when drawn. There’s not a lot of light-control going on here, making blockout panels ideal for bedrooms, media rooms and any areas of your home that call for darkness and total privacy.
