When you’re choosing new blinds for your home or business, it’s important to pick the right ones – blinds that will do what you need them to do, match your décor scheme, work well and look great. With Expression Blinds, you’ve got a wide range of blinds to choose from, but one type that are always a favourite are roller blinds. Adaptable, durable and inexpensive, roller blinds are almost always a great choice for your blinds – so let’s take a look at what sets them apart, and their pros and cons, to help you make your decision!
What Sets Roller Blinds Apart:
The defining feature of a set of roller blinds is the sheet of blinds material that is rolled down to cover the window, providing a solid block of light control that can be carefully adjusted up and down. Because of that simple design, they are hardy, durable, and easy to maintain, making them a perennial favourite for home and commercial use.
At Expression Blinds, all our blinds are made from scratch to fit your specifications, so they’ll fit perfectly and can be made to suit whatever décor or mechanical needs you have. Get in touch today to talk to our expert blinds fitters and manufacturers, and we’ll see what we can do for you!
The Pros of Roller Blinds
They’re relatively inexpensive
Thanks to their straightforward design, roller blinds are among our more affordable blinds ranges.
They’re very adaptable
Roller blinds can be adjusted to the exact height you need, so even the unpredictable British sun can’t ruin your day.
They’re available in a huge range of styles, materials and colours
Whatever you’re looking for, from anthracite grey frames that blend in to your window frame to striking statement pieces or elegant woven wood blinds… it’s all available in our roller blinds range. Give us a call today to talk through the options!
They provide plenty of privacy
Opaque roller blinds, when rolled down, provide plenty of privacy, as well as keeping your room cool on a hot day and helping to conserve heat by boosting your window’s insulation abilities. More translucent blinds let light filter in during the day, but don’t provide as much privacy at night – you can counter this with a curtain or slightly thicker blinds material.
They can be made Smart or wired into an electric blinds system easily
Looking for easy-to-operate smart blinds? Roller blinds are ideal for use as smart or electric blinds, meaning you can control the light in the room with a remote or a voice command!
They are available as Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect Fit Blinds are completely contained in their frames, so there’s no dangling cord and nothing for a child or pet to get caught up in. Perfect Fit Blinds also keep everything tidily contained, and remove the gap around the side of the blinds which sometimes allows reflected light to filter through.
The Cons of Roller Blinds
Roller blinds can be unsuitable for irregularly-shaped windows
Normally, roller blinds can be unsuitable for irregularly-shaped windows, but since we at Expression Blinds make all your blinds from scratch to fit your specifications, we’re more able than most to meet your needs even if you have irregularly-shaped windows. We’ve been custom-making blinds fore more than 10 years, and we’ll be happy to help you find a blinds set that’s perfect for you – give us a call today!
They can sometimes flap in the breeze if the window is open
To solve this problem, use Perfect Fit blinds or roller your blinds all the way up when you’re opening your window.
They can sometimes have dangling cords or chains that are not child-safe or pet-safe
We provide a number of operating options for your blinds, including rods and motorized options that help make your blinds as safe as they possibly can be. For the safest roller blinds, talk to your fitter about Perfect Fit or smart blinds, which don’t have a cord or anything else that a child or pet could get caught up in.
