Roller blinds are one of the most popular types of blinds sold today, being used in many households and businesses throughout the country. They are also one of the best value blinds available, and come with a massive selection of styles, colours, textures and designs making them a versatile option for anyone looking for blinds.
Not only that, but roller blinds can be easily custom-made to suit specific dimensions, so you can get a set of blinds that perfectly match the size and shape of any window. The fact that they are also one of the cheapest types of blinds available also helps make them one of the most common types of blinds sold today.
How they work …
Roller blinds feature a large section of materials with many treated to prevent any light coming through, making them great for privacy when being used, particularly in the bedroom. They are easily operated, usually with a beaded cord that is pulled to lower and raise the material, although they can sometimes use a spring mechanism.
This type of blind hangs low when fully extended and can be retracted to sit at various lengths, rolling up or down when pulling on the cord, hence the name ‘roller blind’.
There are countless styles of roller blinds available, with the fabric used coming in many different materials, textures, colours, and patterns. You can also easily find personalised roller blinds at most blind retailers, allowing you to get a specific style you desire.
Additionally, roller blinds can be categorised by their transparency. For instance, daylight roller blinds allow more light through the fabric, whereas blackout options will block all natural light. These features are easy to achieve, with the thickness of the material determining how much natural light can make it through.
Advantages of Roller Blinds …
Perhaps the most widely known advantage of roller blinds is their affordability. You can easily invest in a quality set of roller blinds without paying excessively, making them a fine option for anyone on a budget, and they are available in the most common window sizes and bespoke made to measure.
Another great benefit of roller blinds is their simplicity. Anyone can install these blinds at home, usually by attaching the brackets at the top of the frame and then connecting it together with the blinds.
Furthermore, roller blinds are incredibly versatile. As the most commonly use blinds around, they come in almost any style, with endless options for colours, patterns, fabrics, textures, and sizes.
So, anyone looking for a specific style to match their décor will not struggle to find something, as there is simply an incredible selection of roller blinds available.
