So, blinds rollite - it is rather a kind, rather than the material from which they are made. Their main advantages can be considered:
- mount on the window sash itself (which allows to ventilate the room, even pubescent curtains, while not hurting yourself and blinds without damaging them);
- large selection of colors, patterns, textures and densities;

Among the shortcomings can be called only the impossibility of manufacturing at home. For their installation is best to invite the master, who professionally perform their duties.
Roller blinds made of bamboo - a "exotichighlight "of your home, able to enliven any, even the most boring interior. They are strips of bamboo or straw, fastened between a strong decorative thread. One of the advantages of this material I would like to mention:
- significant range in the choice of color and texture of the material;

- environmentally friendly material;
They have virtually no drawbacks. After all, they are reliable, they are absolutely not difficult to manage. More functional blinds not even find.
Recently, more and more often in the interior began to meet blinds made of wood. This horizontal design of wood - non-toxic and natural material. What are the advantages? See for yourself:

- humidity (again, because they are processed by professional solutions which are used in their manufacture);
- wood can be varnished or laminated (which prolongs the service life).

However, the main material for the manufacture ofroller blinds, a fabric - the most varied in density, color and texture. Fortunately wide range of colors and patterns, allowing you to select exactly what will suit your decor. The main advantages of textile roller blinds are:
- the ability to vary the level of light penetration (from scattered to the dull curtains closed);
- a rich range of colors;

The downside can be considered fragile and relatively fast burning in the sun, but then again most of the tissue is treated with a special compound to prolong the life of curtains.

All species are formed only on the difference of the shaft diameter, shape and thickness of the bottom planochki. In this function, all such mechanisms are exactly the same. However, when choosing an open fastening systems do not forget that the wider your blinds, the greater must be the diameter of the shaft. This type of attachment can not only cover the entire window opening completely, and some of its leaf. Prices, for example, in Leroy Merlin on these blinds is relatively low.
Closed (cassette) type
All opposed gated attachment from the openIt is that there is still in the closed box, which closes the shaft subsequently wound around it with a cloth. In this type of mounting is necessary to consider that the fabric web is narrower than the window opening exactly the width of the guide.
