Nicora introduces the concept of Double Blinds. Here, a sheer is the primary blind giving privacy during the day, but allowing the light in. At night, the second blind comes down to ensure complete privacy. Can be used in conjunction with blackout lining.
BAMBOO AS LINING
If the window gets a lot of sun, use a light coloured lining so as to avoid the fabric fading over time. At Nicora, we particularly recommend the use of plain bamboo as lining. The advantages of this are:
Bamboo gives stiffness to the fabric and improves the folding of Roman blinds
Keeps your window looking attractive from the outside
Bamboo is a natural colour and hence minimizes fading
Can be used with black out lining
Roman blinds work very well in bay windows as it conserves space and prevents the gathering of fabric. They are the ultimate answer for window dressing in contemporary homes.
The rationale for borders can be either functional or to increase the chic quotient. Borders can help introduce or highlight a colour in the room. They make the blind stylish and bespoke to you or your room. Functionally they can also help to distract from the outside, bringing attention back into the room or from ugly window frames!
Blinds for children’s rooms can be a lot of fun. Blinds can be made interesting by using denim fabrics, adding pockets or belts as details on the panel. We can also vary the fabrics on each of the panels making the room more colourful. We have designed many blinds for children and work with the parents and child to ensure that blind design will remain contemporary.
Easy blackout lining helps ensure that the function of a blind is well served in ensuring a good night’s sleep for your children.
Nowadays with stylish bathrooms which look and feel more like a spa, windows often remain neglected. Nicora has a range of fabrics that work especially in bathrooms. Our woven elegance range works well with contemporary tiles. We also have poppy fabrics that when wet create a fragrant effect.
