Thinking of ordering new roller blinds for your windows? Our experts explain a few essentials to help you make the perfect decision for your place. We’ve also included some must-have maintenance tips to ensure your roller blinds keep their good looks over time.
Have large windows?
Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to roller blinds. While our Aspect team can easily create a single blind for a wide window (up to 2900mm wide), we don’t recommend it. That’s because oversized roller blinds are heavier. All that fabric & bottom rail weight can cause the top tube to slightly bow (as little as 1-3mm) which causes the fabric to sag. This looks like the fabric is rippled in a V shape casting shadows across the blind.
Wanting roller blinds for wide windows? Best to split the blinds co-ordinating with the mullions in the window joinery!
Ordering for a bedroom?
Blockout fabric is a great idea for bedrooms. If you struggle with sleeping during the say, consider those light gaps around your roller blinds too. You can reduce these significantly by asking for your blinds to be manufactured with a back roll and fitted outside of the window frame on the architrave.
Sleep soundly with back-rolled roller blinds with a blackout fabric.
How much sun exposure does the room get?
If you’re ordering blinds for a room which gets plenty of sun, consider your fabric choice. Lighter colour shades will help keep things a little cooler, while darker hues will attract and hold more heat around the window. As we explain here, sunscreen or light filtering blinds could be a very smart choice for sunnier spaces.
Light-coloured textiles in sunscreen or light filtering fabrics are a smart idea for sun-exposed rooms.
Multiple window blinds in one area?
While they’re simple and easy to operate, opening and lowering multiple roller blinds in one area can become tedious over time. Why not automate the task with motorisation? Our high-quality roller blind motors are an affordable option. Motorised blinds are an ideal choice for children’s bedrooms by removing the need for dangling blind cords.
Consider motorising your roller blinds for ease of use, safety, and style!
