Roller blinds from First Choice Blinds
Roller blinds are one of the most practical and low maintenance window covering options. Once you get an idea about what they are and how they work, you will have a better idea of why they are recommended over more traditional window coverings.
Introduction to Roller Blinds
A roller blind is made of a single piece of fabric that comes wrapped around a casing.
This type of window treatment fits into your pre-existing window frame, either inside or outside and can be manual or motorised.
It is operated by pulling a cord attached either to the bottom of the blind or by sidechaining. Motorized window blinds are controlled with a remote.
“Roller blinds are not only practical, but they can also tie a room together so much better than regular blackout shades.”
You cannot go wrong when you choose manual or motorized roller blinds to transform your home. Here’s why.
If you want a multipurpose window treatment, this type of window blind is perfect. Roller blinds block sunlight partially or completely. Thanks to their translucent qualities, you can see outside without compromising on privacy.
These window blinds are extremely durable and will last for generations. Usually, roller blinds are treated to be UV-resistant; this protects them from wearing out or fading. The material used for roller blinds, therefore, makes them longer lasting than regular curtains.
Ease of Operation
Roller blinds have the easiest operating mechanism. They can be spring assisted, chain driven or fully motorized. Chain-driven and motorized roller blinds can open and close multiple blinds at once. You need not operate each blind separately, which makes them suitable for hard-to-reach windows.
For a window covering with simple lines, roller blinds have an elegant and classic look. They fit perfectly and there is no excess fabric. You even have a choice in fabrics, such as translucent, sunscreen and block out. These fabrics come in various patterns and colours.
Suitable Window Types
The best thing about roller blinds is that they are perfect for almost any type of windows and doors.
“We had all kinds of weird window shapes and were still able to get a roller for every room in every size.”
