What are roller blinds?

Roller blinds are single pieces of fabric that wraps around a casing and fits to the top of your window frame. There are two options as to where they fit to, within or outside of your window recess. The functionality allows the blind to be lowered or heightened through a side-winding chain mechanism attached to the the blind casing.

Can roller blinds be used on all windows?

The technical answer to this is yes, but depending on the type of window and room you have, roller blinds will either be the best option or sometimes, it’s best to go for other types of blinds. We recommend roller blinds for most windows, but they are especially nice on bay windows and windows that are flush. It really mostly depends on the type of style you want. If you’re looking for stylish yet discreet styling then you’re onto a winner. However, skylights, velux windows and patio doors would also welcome roller blinds due to their diversity.

Kitchen and bathroom blinds are great for roller blinds too as they need to be able to stand different temperatures and different moisture levels. Our Roller blinds come in a choice of performance fabrics, including flame-retardant, moisture-resistant and wipe clean options.
