If you are looking for a contemporary alternative to curtains, roller blinds offer a simple and streamlined solution. Easy-to-fit and rolling subtly out of the way when not in use, it's no wonder roller blinds are such a popular choice. Whether you want to add a bold splash of colour to a room or black out your bedroom for the ultimate good night's sleep, roller blinds allow you to cover a window without curtains flapping around in the way. You can even adjust a roller blind, pulling it halfway down a window to block out the most intense glare yet keep your room light and bright.
Make sure you decide whether your blind will fit inside or outside of your window recess and measure the space accordingly before ordering your blinds. It is sometimes possible to trim your blind down to the perfect size, so don't worry if your window is a non-standard size. Alternatively, take a look at Made to Measure roller blinds to order the perfect fit.
Modern Blind Features
You'll find a selection of fabrics on offer, all with different benefits. Shift workers who sleep during the day or parents of young children will love blinds produced using thick blackout material. This will keep your bedroom dark however sunny it is outside. Blinds for kitchens and bathrooms are well-suited to waterproof fabrics, while blinds for sunny sitting rooms or conservatories can simply use a light cotton fabric.
Roller blinds can be purchased in block colours or patterned designs, so you can find something that complements your room's interior design perfectly. Top trends include bright orange, grey geometric designs, vintage floral patterns and cheery beach hut motifs. You'll find cute animal characters to keep children happy and beautiful landscape and cityscape prints that create the illusion of a fabulous view when your blinds are down. With so much to choose from, you can match your blind to your room's theme easily.
