All You Need to Know About Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are used around the world because of their attractive design and effective light and privacy control. Roller blinds offer a lot of choice in terms of colour and style, so we’ve put together this guide to help you make the right decision when it comes to choosing the blinds for your home, office or commercial premises.
What are roller blinds?
Roller blinds are made from a single piece of fabric which is designed and treated to be durable and resistant to fading. This single-piece style makes it easy for the roller function to work – it is rolled around a tube, which in turn is operated by a chain to open and close the blind.
The benefits of roller blinds
The roller blind is popular for its clean look – that is to say that there’s no joints, no slats and no interruptions to the colour, pattern or design of the blind.
They’re easy to operate and they’re available in blackout format, too, for those who need a few extra hours of sleep.
Their low maintenance is another big selling point – if there’s any dirt or dust on the blinds, there’s no need to weave between slats, as there would be with other types of blind.
What to consider when buying a roller blind
There are a number of crucial factors that buyers need to consider when choosing their roller blinds, and we’re going to run through them here.
Size: Your blinds need to be the perfect size for your window; blinds that are too big look messy, and blinds that are too small will leave gaps between the edge of the blind and the window recess.
Colour: If you’re going into the purchase without any prior colour planning, consider whether certain colours will complement your interior rather than clashing with it or dominating the space. If you have an idea of the colour you’d like already, then be sure to examine the various hues and shades of that colour to make sure you’re getting the perfect one.
Price: Of course, unless you’re lucky enough to be in a ‘money’s no object’ situation, price is perhaps the most important factor of purchasing a blind. At Kingston Blinds Direct, we’re proud to offer our high-quality blinds at very competitive prices, so you can be sure you’re getting the best without breaking the bank.
Go for made-to-measure
We’ve already mentioned the importance of measuring up before you start choosing blinds, but for the complete avoidance of doubt, opt for made-to-measure roller blinds. Measure up your blinds carefully, and then provide those measurements when you order your blinds on the Kingston Blinds Direct site – our experts will then manufacture your blinds to the exact size required, ensuring there’s no need for alterations or redesigns further down the line.
How to clean your roller blinds
The maintenance of your roller blinds is obviously important, and luckily roller blinds have quite a high resistance to grime and dirt. As the roller blind is just made of a single piece of material, maintenance is relatively simple; you can wipe it with a clean, damp cloth to get rid of any marks.
