What are Zebra Blinds?

Zebra Blinds
Posted: 25 Feb 2022

Zebra Blinds (AKA Vision Blinds)  are a type of window blind that can help you with controlling the light in your room with shading. They are rising in popularity currently and are referred to as ‘Zebra’ blinds due to the striped effect of the blinds.

Why Are They Striped?

Vision blinds are similar to Roller Blinds, except they offer a two-tone appearance due to the layered transparent and opaque stripes. The black and clear ones give off a similar contrast to black and white. Hence the resemblance to a zebra pattern.

What Benefits are There For This Design?

This design offers a more controllable and stunning alternative to the Classic Venetian or Roller Blind. The stripes of opaque material offer privacy and the transparent layer allow you to control the light in your room. Together, the pair also add a fun, interesting pattern over your window. They appear as a fashionable asset to any room.

As you can see from the photos above, when open they provide a unique colour-blocking effect; when shut offer total privacy.

However, it offers a different experience when you align the translucent fabric. The material then softens daylight and reduces glare. This allows you to use your room in comfort, while still keeping the room bright. You also still see a partial garden view through the fabric.

Can I Choose The Colour?

The colour of your stand-out blinds is also fully customisable. They are available in a wide range of styles, including 19 fabrics and 4 coloured cassettes, to match the style of any window. Muted tones are also available such as those featured in the photo below. This is perfect for those interested in a more subtle yet complimentary blind for their room.


So, whether you want your blinds to be a blocky statement piece or a subtle soft addition to your room, Specialist Blinds can customise your Zebra Blinds just for you.

Customer reviews

We have just had our blinds fitted into our conservatory and my wife and I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank your company for an outstanding service and for the provision of quality blinds, from sales presentation through to installation.

Your sales representative; Greg was very proficient and thorough in ensuring that our requirements were accommodated and his range of samples allowed us to see at first hand what our intended product would look like, which allowed us to ask questions with ease. It certainly helped us make a decision in choosing your company against those that had called earlier.

The installer; Stuart was very helpful and faultless in his work and ensured that we were completely satisfied with operating the blinds before leaving.

I appreciate that not many complimentary letters or emails are sent back to companies, but with service like this it was well deserved.

Thanking you once again.

Having had window blinds fitted by you some eleven years ago, we decided at last to have roof blinds also.

From the moment of contact to the finished job we were treated wonderfully by all staff. The young lady in the office found our previous order and had all our details to hand, she then arranged for the representative Grant Johnstone to call who was also very helpful. He told us that the surveyor would ring in a day or so to make an appointment and sure enough, just a couple of days later we were contacted by Chris Mitchell and an appointment was made.

Although due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to be home in time for the original appointment a new one was made and all was well. Chris arrived on time and did what he had to do in the way of measuring etc., he the explained the process of fitting from start to finish. Within four weeks our beautiful blinds were fitted and we are absolutely delighted with them we really don't know why it took us so long to have the roof blinds.

We would like to thank everyone who had a part in the provision and fitting of our blinds so much, they really are beautiful and if they last as well as the window blinds have we will be more than happy. Incidentally, the window blinds show no signs of wear and still look as good as new.

Our thanks once again to all involved.

Pleated blinds are specifically designed for use in UK conservatories; so they can be made to fit any shape of conservatory roof or window much neater than generic blinds.
