Here’s Why Roller Blinds are Australia’s No.1 Choice

It’s easy to see why roller blinds are so popular, as you can’t surpass their functionality, usefulness and aesthetic. Sleek and streamlined, roller blinds enhance any space with their minimalist look and instantly create a sense of order and calm in busy areas such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. There’s a roller blind to suit all your light, glare and privacy needs. In addition, roller blinds also have insulating properties to regulate the temperature inside your home, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Convenience at the touch of a button

Another reason for the popularity of roller blinds in Sydney is that they are so convenient to use. Everyone knows the primary control chain mechanism – which for most people is easy enough – but did you know that you can also choose motorised roller blinds? Automation lets you control your blinds at any point with your remote control. Motorised blinds can be battery-powered or hardwired and are a perfect choice if you’re planning a high-end renovation or love innovative technology.

You can control your light and shade

Roller blinds offer additional benefits when controlling light and shade, as curtains need to be closed entirely to be effective, whereas adjustable roller blinds can offer you the privacy you need whilst still maintaining your preferred levels of natural light. The fabric you choose will also determine how much or how little light comes into your home.

A variety of roller blinds to choose from

Blockout Roller Blinds are perfect for bedrooms and living areas as they provide complete protection from exterior light.

Sheer Roller Blinds filter out harsh sunlight and allow you to see outside without letting anyone see inside your home during the day.

Light Filtering Roller Blinds are essentially opaque, allowing filtered light to enter your home, while still providing privacy. Light filtering blinds are ideal for the living room, lounge, or dining area where complete blockout isn’t required but some degree of privacy and insulation is needed.

Double Roller Blinds combine the benefits of the blinds mentioned above, giving you the option of combining complete blockout, light filtering or sheer materials to suit your needs.

Motorised Roller Blinds let you have complete control at the touch of a button, without leaving the sofa.

Fabrics to suit your style and decor

Roller blind fabric options come in an array of sheer, translucent, block-out fabrics, featuring both plain and textured finishes. When installing roller blinds, selecting your fabric type based on a favourite colour is very easy. However, apart from aesthetics, the fabric is a vital feature of any window furnishing as different materials provide different properties. It’s good to keep this in mind, as the colour and fabric will determine your blinds’ effectiveness in other ways.

Easy to keep intact

Roller blinds are long-lasting, but they can easily loosen over time and are caused by the spring on the inside roller loosening during continued use. That’s why one of the most common questions we hear is, “How do I tension roller blinds?” When blinds relax, they cannot retract up and, instead, hang halfway down. So if the shade won’t stay up, the spring is too loose. This is a relatively easy fix that you can do yourself. Pull the shade down about halfway. Lift the flat-pin end of the roller out of its bracket. Then roll the shade up by hand, keeping it tightly rolled. Try to use it again, and it should spring back up.

Simply, easy maintenance

Keeping roller blinds in good condition is important if you want them to stay functional and beautiful over time. Looking after your roller blinds is easy as they only require regular dusting and cleaning by wiping them down with a damp towel every couple of weeks. Ideally, double roller blinds and blockout roller blinds should be cleaned and dusted weekly. When you’re looking for roller blinds, it’s essential to get advice from people in the know.
