Roller blinds are one of the most popular window coverings in Australia. In most cases, the blind material is wrapped around a casing and fitted into the top of a window frame or doorway. The product is then operated with a pull cord attached to the bottom of the blind, a side-winding chain attached to the cases or using a motorised control.
As one of the most versatile blinds on the market, these products are suitable for most types of windows and doors. The wide range of styles and simple functionality makes these window furnishings a great way to boost privacy, maintain complete light control and manage the heating or cooling of a space.
Made-to-measure roller blinds also come in thousands of colours and designs, which gives you plenty to choose from. With so many on offer, a roller blind is a simple, quick and long-lasting way to completely transform a room too.
While there are plenty of different options available, it’s important to find the right one to suit your space. To ensure the best possible blind, many people choose to go with a custom roller-blind installation. Customisation offers the peace of mind that you’ll get a perfect fit, a professional finish and a stylish look – every single time.
At Empire Window Furnishings, we’re on a mission to ensure every customer can find the right roller blind and we want the experience to be as simple and stress-free as possible. That’s why we’ve broken it down into a simple and flexible three-step process that ensures every customer receives a high-quality, long-lasting and stylish final result.
Installing custom roller blinds
- Step one: Site visit
To find the best fit for your room, it’s important to consider the size of the window or door and the level of light in the room. As part of your custom-installation process, one of our Empire Windows Furnishing technicians will visit your home to measure the chosen location, discuss your goals and budget, and review the lighting requirements.
This site visit is also a great opportunity to explore the colours, materials and finishes available. As all our Empire Window Furnishings roller blinds come in an array of sheer, translucent and block out fabrics, featuring both plain and textured finishes, it’s a great idea to consider which style you prefer early in the process to help narrow down the selection.
- Step two: Blind type selection
After discussing your style preferences, our technicians can then help you explore the range of suitable options available for your space, vision and requirements. The four main types on offer are blockout roller blinds, light filtering roller blinds, double roller blinds and motorised roller blinds.
Blockout roller blinds are perfect for bedrooms and living areas as they offer absolute protection from exterior light.
Light filtering roller blinds filter out the sun, which allows you to see outside without letting others see in during the day.
Double roller blinds combine the benefits of blockout roller blinds and light filter roller blinds into one space to offer complete privacy or allow natural ambient light to filter through.
Motorised roller blinds use batteries or hardwiring to enable you full control of your blinds in the click of a button.
At Empire Window Furnishings, all roller blinds are also all designed and created with additional insulation properties to provide protection against all Australian climates and conditions.
With your selections finalised, our team can then place an order for the product with our suppliers or source the materials from our warehouse of stock. The wait-time for each order will depend on product availability and demand, but our team can provide an estimated timeframe at the time of ordering.
- Step three: Installation
Once your beautiful new blinds are in-stock and available, our team will be in touch to arrange the installation at a time that best suits you.
The process of installing roller blinds is relatively quick and unlikely to require extensive alterations to the surrounding area. With plenty of experience and leading-edge tools, your Empire Windows Furnishing installer will have the knowledge and ability to seamlessly install your product in the chosen location.
