Zebra Blinds Aka Day and Night Blinds

February 14, 2023

Day and night blinds are also known as Zebra blinds because of the stripe effect they create as well as mirage blinds and vision blinds. They are great because they offer more flexibility compared to something like blockout blinds, when it comes to things like light control and privacy. They also look different to other blinds and some people are drawn to that.

Exploring what day and night blinds are?

Day and night blinds are similar to roller blinds in many ways but they are not exactly the same. They work the same as a roller blind with a doubled layer of material that goes up the back and front of the roller tube. Those materials are made up of alternating stripes of an opaque or solid fabric and then the next is something more transparent. It is not two pieces of fabric as some people assume but rather one piece that is looped around to double up. When you roll the blind up and down depending on what you are trying to achieve it causes the stripes to move and align in different mixings. One might be completely opaque, one a mixture of sheer and opaque and one that is more transparent for example.

What do Zebra blinds look like?

That particular name gives that away! They are a striped effect but it is not just that you can get different colours you can also get different fabrics and that creates a contrast there too. You can change how they look as you adjust the blind, so your adjustment might not just be about achieving a certain amount of light or privacy but also to create your preferred look. You can raise or lower them fully or partially.

Advantages to choosing these blinds

If you are looking for the best option for blocking out light and even some sound then you want blockout blinds. But if you are wondering what the advantages of day and night blinds here is a look.

  • You have a lot of control over light and privacy depending on how you position the stripes.
  • You can let in a lot of light on days where you want the space to be more open and welcoming, or have more blocked out if you want to watch a movie or create a cosy setting.
  • Even when you choose the more transparent setting you still have good privacy as they are harder still to see in unless someone stops and literally stares deliberately.
  • They are easy to operate using a sidewinder chain.
  • There are many options when it comes to colours, fabrics and choices so you choose something that will look great in whatever room you want to place them.
  • Day and night blinds also come with blackout materials if you prefer.


Day and night blinds are a great choice if you want to choose something different to the typical choices that are more popular nowadays. They are also as good at blocking light or letting it in as you want while looking more interesting than many blind types.
