Frequently asked questions
What are the most common types of roller blinds?
The most common types of roller blinds are blockout blinds and light-filtering blinds. As the names suggest, the former allow for complete darkness, total privacy and increased insulation, while the latter soften natural light and glare while preserving the view outside.
Many of our customers choose to enjoy the benefits of using these two options together, mounting them as a pair with a duo bracket for unparalleled light control.
How do roller blinds work?
Roller blinds consist of a single piece of fabric that is attached to an aluminium roller, which itself is mounted to the window or above the recess using single or duo brackets. These blinds can be operated by a chain, spring-loaded device or motor, and roll up to practically disappear from view.
The core purpose of a roller blind is to control the level of light entering your space through the window and give you more privacy.
How does roller blind motorisation work?
Motorisation is a game-changing feature that enables you to control your roller blinds at the touch of a button.
Opened and closed with either a remote control or smartphone, motorised blinds are accessible, child safe and extra sleek, thanks to the absence of chains.
If you would like to add motorisation to your blinds, please include this in your request for a quote.
Can roller blinds be fitted outside the window recess?
Yes, they certainly can. This style is known as a ‘face fit’ and is a popular way to install roller blinds. If you would like to fit your blinds outside of the recess, please let our team know during the free fitting and measuring service.
Which direction should my blind roll?
Roller blinds can roll in either direction, either to the front or back, depending on your preference.
A front roll is advised for blinds fit within the window recess, as it enables your blinds to skim over slight obstructions and align with the start of the recess.
On the other hand, we recommend a back roll for face fit blinds, as the fabric will rest nice and close to the window frame or wall with minimal gapping.
Please let our team know which direction you desire during the free fitting and measuring visit.
Are roller blinds appropriate for larger windows, and bi-fold or sliding doors?
Yes, thanks to their streamlined design, linked roller blinds are a wonderful covering for wide windows and sliding or bi-fold doors.
With our made-to-measure solutions, you can customise the style and control of your blinds so that you can continue to open any windows or doors with ease.
Can I add a pelmet to my roller blind?
Yes, you can add a pelmet to your roller blind. Choose a matching fabric to complete the overall look and conceal the aluminium roller and brackets beneath.
If you would like to add a pelmet, please let our team know when requesting your quote and we will factor in this stylish addition.
Do roller blinds keep warmth inside during the winter?
Yes, roller blinds are renowned for their insulating abilities in all seasons!
If temperature regulation is a primary objective of your blinds, we recommend choosing a blockout fabric as this option is most effective at keeping heat inside during the winter.
How do I clean my roller blinds?
To clean your roller blinds, simply dust the fabric occasionally and spot clean by wiping with a damp cloth or sponge.
Do not roll the blind up until it has dried completely.
Lastly, please remember to avoid using abrasive cleaning products, which may damage the material.
