▌Features and advantages of roller blinds

Roller blinds have a host of excellent features that help to make them perfect for your home. There are many benefits that can ensure they’re a better fit for your windows compared to some other window dressing styles, including other types of blinds and curtains.

While there are multiple advantages to choosing roller blinds, there are 3 key features that you may find most useful:

1. Versatile appearance

If you’re looking for blinds that are simple but versatile, roller blinds are one of the top options you can choose. They look neat and presentable in any room, providing a sleek appearance that is suitable for any style of decoration.

Roller blinds are smooth and uniform, making it easy to find them in different prints, materials, and styles. You can browse through our extensive selection of roller blinds to find some that you love.

2. Small and sleek

The small size and low profile of roller blinds make them ideal for spaces of any size. They don’t take up a lot of space, so you can fit them to windows both big and small.

When they’re rolled up, they are completely out of the way and stored neatly where you hang them. When you roll them down, they are flat across the window frame. They’re kept neatly out of the way so you can’t easily knock them and they don’t intrude on the rest of the space.

3. Easy cleaning and maintenance

No one wants to spend a lot of time cleaning blinds.

Fortunately, roller blinds are easy to clean and maintain. You can dust them with a duster or cloth, or even use a vacuum cleaner to keep them clean. A damp cloth or sponge is also useful if you want to wipe down your blinds to prevent them from getting dusty or dirty.

The great thing about roller blinds is they are made from one smooth piece of material, so there are no little gaps or awkward spaces that you need to try hard to get into in order to clean.

Various roller blind materials

Roller blinds come in different materials, which can each offer different benefits. The available materials will provide various effects when it comes to controlling light and other functionality, as well as style. Roller blinds can be used to control light, or just to help you decorate any room to your liking.

🔹Semi-transparent roller blinds

Semi-transparent roller blinds like our Tiken and Zaiki styles are a great choice if you want to control the amount of light in any space. They let some natural light through so that it’s not completely blacked out.

This makes them ideal for use during the day when you want to avoid too much glare from the sun. They are also fantastic for creating more privacy in a space without blocking out the light. You can choose from a range of colors and patterns to get the right look.

🔹Blackout roller blinds

If you do want to block out light from outside, blackout roller blinds are what you should choose. Blackout blinds such as our Sakin and Emmi blinds create effective shading and privacy. They are perfect for bedrooms, helping you to get a good night’s sleep, as well as other spaces where you might need to block out both light and prying eyes.

3 system options for roller blinds, easy to use

Roller blinds can operate in different ways, depending on their design. Our blinds have three main systems for operation that you can choose based on safety, convenience, and functionality.

1. Ball chain loop

A ball chain loop is a simple way of operating a roller blind. It’s a pull cord that you use to both roll the blind up and down by pulling in opposite directions. One of the things to consider with this style of operation is safety.

Especially when you have children or pets in your home, it’s essential to keep the cord out of the way because it can be a strangling hazard. Using a safety hook/ holder to tie it up onto the wall will prevent the ball chain loop from swaying.

2. Hydraulic spring system

If you are looking for a roller blind style that is automatically safer, a hydraulic spring system can help you. This has a short cord attached to the blind that allows you to pull down and push up the blind with the use of the spring system. It removes the need for the ball chain loop and provides a smart finish.

3. Motorized blinds

There are three types of motorized blinds you can use in your home.

Simple Pull-motion blinds are manually operated, but they easily move up and down without any force. They operate automatically when you pull the ball chain.

A motorized remote control blind allows you to adjust your roller blinds without having to be right next to them. Using a remote control, you can move your blinds into position from wherever you are in the room, which means you don’t have to get out of bed if you don’t want to.
