A roller blind is a window shade that rolls up out of the way and is a great option for different types of windows and room spaces. It consists of a single piece of fabric that is wrapped around a casing that fits into the top of the window frame, either within or outside of the window frame. The most frequent way it is operated by is a sidewinding chain mechanism attached to the blind casing.
Roller blinds suit any window whether small or large, wide or narrow and even floor to ceiling. As roller blinds sit closely against the window they look neat and modernized and roll away when not in use. Roller blinds block outdoor heat and keep the house cool. There are different levels of fabric to control light entering, most designers prefer to keep 50% of light to enter the room, some prefer a complete black out.
If you are someone who prefers to have the windows wide open during good weather to allow fresh air into your home or enjoy an incredible view, then roller blinds can be incredibly beneficial because they completely disappear when retracted, other window covering like curtains and traditional blinds might be able to be pulled partially away from the window.
One of the best features about roller blinds is that they offer a clean, lustrous look that is minimally invasive in your room. Other window treatments like bulky curtains not only hang away from the wall and take up space that could otherwise be occupied by furniture or decor, but they can also lend a heavy, stuffy feel to a room. Roller blinds that are mounted inside of the window frame give the advantage of a few extra inches that they would have lost otherwise. Additionally, because they have such a low profile, roller blinds provide the perfect base for a layered window treatment.
As roller blinds let you adjust light and privacy easily and quickly by changing the height of the blind there are also endless design options which adds to the flexibility giving you a unique personalized design to your home. The simplicity of roller blinds is one of the most admirable features as they are easy to use, maintain and have excellent wear and tear properties.
If you are likely to choose easy clean fabrics then roller blinds are a great option for your home as they don’t harbor dust and mites which makes it a good choice for those who suffer from allergies. They have no horizontal surface so they require little effort to clean and can usually be wiped with a soft, damp cloth to remove any dust or debris and the print will remain undamaged.
Decorating is a lot of fun especially when you can custom your own roller blind with your favorite photo to create the perfect finishing touch to your home. You can have your own photos, art or any image printed on to the blinds to make an extra special feature in your home. Printed blinds are making a décor statement at the moment as they add a touch of uniqueness and originality to your space.
The print on the fabric does not fade or change over time and there are endless design choices and ideas even possibly personalized design with your own photo.
