The huge explosion in the range of roller blind fabrics available, in addition to budget fabrics, has transformed the 'humble' roller blind into the arena of interior design and soft furnishings.
No longer just a functional fixture, there are a huge choice of styles, colours, fabrics and optional trims, shapings and poles to choose from. Whatever your taste, property and budget, there is a roller blind for you.
Recent innovations in the use of roller blinds, such as 'framed' roller blinds, allow for closer fitting and reduced light levels where required.
These roller blinds fit into a frame that surrounds your existing glass, therefore the fitting is accomplished without the need for screws or drilling. No damage is done to your window seals and so a very neat appearance is achieved.
The roller blinds are tensioned within the frames, which removes the need for unsightly chains or cords, fitting in well with today's minimalist look.
Framed roller blinds are suitable for all types of windows, but are especially practical in conservatories, as the frame eliminates 'flapping' of the blinds on conservatory doors.
Roller blinds can also be supplied in a range of blackout fabrics from 'budget' to 'designer' and are the ideal solution for any situation where you need to keep light to a minimum.
For instance, blackout roller blinds are ideal for a baby's nursery, helping them to get to sleep during the day and for adults who struggle to get a decent nights sleep.
Shift workers who have to sleep during the day could also find them invaluable. Or maybe you have a street light outside that disturbs your sleep or live on a busy road where car headlights are the bane of your life.
Wherever you need to cut down on light pollution, blackout blinds are the answer!
This new innovation in roller blinds allows them to be in the 'closed' position, whilst still allowing an 'open' effect with views through the blind - a great feature that combines privacy with an open aspect.
Variable roller blinds combine the elegance of diffused light through the sheer fabric, but also the practicality of privacy when needed.
Like standard roller blinds, they are available in an exciting selection of fabrics, designs and colours to enhance your decor.
Variable blinds feature two layers of translucent and opaque horizontal striped fabrics. The front layer moves independently of the back, which allows the stripes to create an open or closed effect. This gives you variable light control at your fingertips, whilst the closed full privacy position creates an impressive block of fabric at your window.
The bold contemporary stripes move easily from transparent to dim out. This means that you can easily adjust these blinds to provide either privacy or transparency at a touch, whilst of course retaining the option of roller blinds to be fully retractable for an unobstructed view to the outside.
