Bottom up blinds are an innovative way to dress any window in the home. Unlike regular blinds, bottom up window blinds are fixed from the base of the window and operate in reverse of the usual way, thus providing shade and privacy across the bottom half of the window first. This type of blind is a very versatile blind, which offers a number of useful benefits, not least those of privacy and light control. For homes situated on a street frontage, the blind can also offer some extra security by obscuring valuables that are situated in the window from the view of any passing pedestrians.
Due to the nature of the design, bottom up blinds are usually custom made to fit specific windows. This means that they are very often more expensive than regular blinds, but they are definitely worth the extra price. They should be considered a window treatment investment—one that will give many years of useful service. Because custom made blinds are more expensive, you will have plenty of options when choosing the fabric and pattern of your blind. This means that you will be able to choose a blind to closely match your existing decorative scheme.
For a bedroom, a bottom up roller blind is an ideal window treatment solution. You can choose an attractive fabric that matches your furnishings and it will look very stylish. During the day, you can enjoy privacy by lifting the blind to obscure the bottom half of the window, and at night, the blind can be pulled right up to the top of the window. If you pick a blind made using blackout fabric, you will be able to enjoy total light control no matter what time of day you decide to head to bed for a snooze.
Bottom up blinds are also ideal for conservatories. If like many people, you live in a fairly crowded residential area, you are likely to be overlooked by neighbors on every side of your garden. This is not always ideal if you wish to enjoy some privacy in your conservatory during the summer. Nobody wants to feel like they are living in a gold fish bowl while they sit reading the newspaper and drinking a cup of tea. By installing some bottom up blinds, you can enjoy a greater degree of privacy while still allowing the light into the conservatory.
This type of blind is also a great solution to privacy in a bathroom. Instead of having to pull a regular blind all the way down a window every time you want to have some privacy for a bath or shower, you can purchase a bottom up blind and keep your bathroom light and airy while still retaining privacy. They offer the best of both worlds and are vastly superior to a standard off the peg blind. For the ultimate in versatility, you can even opt for some top down bottom up blinds in your home. Not only does this type of blind lift from the bottom, it also drops from the top.
