Practical roller blinds in the interior of European apartments are absolutely commonplace. They are firmly established in the offices, cinemas and cafes. They are happy to order for the children's bedroom, choosing models with an interesting printed pattern. They are bought by those who work on the night shift, and sleeps during the day, since blinds like BlackOut completely exclude light penetration. Today, such curtains are used by us, not only for modern, but also for other interior styles.
The design of the curtains is a flat rectangular canvas that covers the window frame. Fastening such a curtain is almost imperceptible, and the control process is very simple - with the help of a chain you can completely open or shut the window.
1. The open type is distinguished by the fact that it has a simple construction consisting only of a blade and an open shaft.
2. Closed type is a structure in which the shaft is hidden in a box (cassette). When folding the shutters of the closed type, the canvas is completely hidden in the box.

But there is also a reverse side of the medal - in the evening, when it is dark outside, and the light is on in the apartment, such a curtain will not hide anything from prying eyes. From the street through it you will see everything that happens in the apartment.
