Roller blinds: what they are
The roller blinds are a curtain model that keeps the fabric always stretched perpendicular to the window, thanks to a rod fixed to the lower part of the structure. The upper part, on the other hand, consists of a roller, usually placed inside a dumpster to protect the textile material from dust and give a sense of greater order at the level of interior design. The winding of the roller blind can take place manually (using a crank, rope or spring mechanism) or automatically through the use of an electric motor.

When to choose roller blinds

Glass curtains: what they are
The glass curtains they are a classic curtain model that adapts perfectly to the glass of the window to be darkened. There are various models but the most popular (because it is easier to assemble and at the same time beautiful to see) is the one with the wand. It is an extendable rod equipped with aluminum springs on which to hang the curtain eyelets. Glass curtains often have adjustable drapes and gathers at the bottom.

When to choose glass curtains
The glass curtains are the most classic that there are and for this reason they adapt to almost all environments and furnishings. It was once the typical model of more intimate houses (while in those with large spaces baroque curtains with sticks and valances were preferred), instead today this curtain also lends itself to lofts with a very high square size, as well as to salons with very high ceilings. For the simplicity intrinsic that characterizes it, the glass curtain will make the bedroom as well as the kitchen or living room very refined. Choose it in very shabby natural materials such as crochet or the ecru cotton: the result will be deliciously chic!
