Translucent or light filtering blinds are very popular for situations where privacy is required but the room does not need to be darkened and are particularly well suited to bathrooms and ensuite situations where natural light is required so is the privac.
If a fabric has a particular weave or pattern then a translucent fabric will show them off no end during daylight hours. At night under a soft internal light a translucent roller blind will be equally effective as a blockout roller blind.
Translucent roller blinds can be paired with a sunscreen roller blind so as to create a double roller blind with very good thermal properties and insulation factors.
Translucent roller blinds are easy to motorise and that they can be operated from a remote controller, a phone app or a full home automation system such as Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Apple and Control 4.
