Fabric roller blinds are simple, sleek and flexible, offering a wide range of colours, fabrics and light-filtering options. You can make them a feature of a room or let them blend seamlessly into your interior decoration. Even the base bar can be styled to suit your décor with fabric wrapped and special finishes available.
Easy to care for, roller blinds are perfect for minimalist interiors as they almost disappear when they’re up. Choose the roller blind that works best for the room: regular, sunscreen or heavy-duty block out blinds.
Give your room a sophisticated look with the soft folds and horizontals of Roman blinds. So versatile, you can dress your room up or create a casual coastal feel, depending on the fabric. Available in cord-drawn, chain drive or motorised options, Roman blinds provide excellent insulation and add a touch of elegance to any room.
Theatre and blackout blinds are great for shift workers, nurseries and media rooms. Dark fabrics work best to block out the light and also create that dramatic theatre look. For a child’s room, you’ll probably prefer a light or bright colour: a block outlining can be added to most fabrics. Side channel fixings add extra block out potential to roller blinds.
As an extra benefit, the reflective white lining in blackout blinds provides superior heat insulation. Don’t let the sunlight keep you up or spoil your movie!
For major renovations or new builds it is worth “hard wiring” automated blinds, but if automation is an afterthought, why not utilise one of our rechargeable or battery operated motors. Great for doorways, large blinds, or children’s rooms. Give yourself peace of mind that blind chains or cords are banished from the children’s rooms. Solar charging is also available on some rechargeable motors.
Most frequent questions and answers on blinds
Plantation shutters are easily the most popular window covering, probably because they look equally smart from the outside as they do from indoors. They give the best range of function for heat, light and privacy control and are the only option for a rattle free ventilation.
Roller blinds are also very popular, they are either in use or discretely tucked away, they come in a vast range of fabrics, textures and colours and give a contemporary look to any window.
Plantation shutters just require a periodic wipe over with a damp cloth, excellent choice for allergy prone households as they do not hold the dust.
Roller blinds are easily cleaned with a vacuum cleaner using the brush attachment, watch for insects getting trapped in the roll as they can easily mark the fabric, try using a baby wipe to remove an stains.
White is a very classic colour for plantation shutters, does a good job of reflecting heat back through the glass and giving good light bounce into darker rooms. It doesn’t seem to date and works well with most interiors. But lots of other colours are available including a timber look.
For fabric blinds and curtains there is so much choice but it comes down to either a very neutral option that maybe blends into the wall colour or a go for it decorative element of the room. Some people opt for the same fabric throughout the house, personally I like to mix it up and design each room separately.
Plantation Shutters are very in style and suit our climate and way of life so well. Textured roller blinds that emulate the linen look are also very on trend as are linen curtains. Roman blinds also play a key role in highly styled rooms as they can be made in almost any drapery fabric and are easy to enhance with trim and contrast bands.
The first question I ask clients is “What function do you need the window covering to perform in this room?”
If you are looking for simple minimalist night time privacy and light block out than go for roller or roman blinds. If day time privacy is required, think about using a soft sheer curtain in an on trend S wave, if you need both day and night time privacy combine a block out roller blind with a sheer curtain or look at Plantation Shutters.
