Fashionable Roller Blinds
Roller blinds offer the ideal window treatment solution for windows of all sizes. Made from robust and durable cottons, many of which have been coated with easy to clean finishes, roller blinds effectively provide the maximum amount of light into a room when rolled to the top of the window. The operating system of a roller blind is very simple to use and the pull cords are often ratcheted to enable the blind to be open at different levels.
Easy to install and fix, roller blinds can be trimmed to size to ensure a perfect fit within a window recess. The vast range of plain and patterned roller blinds available ensures that there is a roller blind to suit any room’s décor and interior design style.
For window treatments which have fabric curtains with swags and tails use roller blinds effectively to fit close to the window’s glass to provide privacy at night when the blind rather than the curtains are closed.
Bathrooms and kitchens benefit from having a roller blind as a window treatment due to them offering a neat and unobtrusive alternative to curtains. Many roller blinds are treated with stain, water and fire retardants making them safe and practical to use.
Blackout roller blinds are the perfect solution in blocking out unwanted light in any room, particularly with the increase in light pollution within towns and suburbs. In many areas street lighting is being increased in an attempt to provide safer areas and reduce crime, however, this increase means that many bedrooms are becoming flooded with light making it extremely difficult for some people to sleep, fitting a blackout blind effectively combats this ever increasing problem.
Roller blinds are available in traditional plain colours of either bright primary colours or more subtle soft muted tones with the fabrics used having a variety of different textures. The increasing popularity in the use of roller blinds in all rooms of a home has seen the introduction of some very fashionable and trendy design patterns emerging. Contemporary geometric patterns and overall bright floral outlines can bring a whole new interior design effect into a room.
Blinds which are predominately plain with a scalloped patterned bottom edge are an effective way to coordinate a roller blind with conventional curtains and when incorporated with a café style brass effect rod running through the bottom edge provides a touch of style and elegance.
Roller blinds which have a nursery rhyme theme are the perfect way to brighten up a baby’s or child’s bedroom. Vibrantly coloured hot air balloons floating across a bright blue sky add a cheerful touch to the room and being available with the blackout option create an atmosphere conducive to sleep.
Wood weave roller blinds make a great alternative to conventional fabric roller blinds. The natural tones of the wood provide a variety of different light effects and coordinate with any room’s interior design style and colours. These wood weave blinds look very impressive in rooms which have fashionable laminated or wooden floors.
