Our made to measure roller blinds are a simple style of blind that works well in kitchens, bathrooms and places where you need maximum light and a more utilitarian feel.
We make beautifully crafted, high quality roller blinds especially for you, in the fabrics of your choice and style for any window.
A roller blind is a simple style of blind that works particularly well in rooms where you need maximum light.
Why choose a roller blind compared to curtains? What are the benefits of roller blinds?
Curtains can make a room feel smaller than it actually is; this is because of their bigger, bulkier design. Many people go for roller blinds because they offer a space efficiency solution, which can be heightened with the use of light filtering roller blinds. They offer a sleek modern option which fits with any home decor. A patterned roller blind can add heaps of character to a room
Blinds are generally more cost effective for those of you who are working to a tight budget. Perhaps you are renovating an entire house? Here a minimum spend can result in maximum impact on a room aesthetic.
Roller blinds are space efficient and suit a room with a lot of windows. They are particularly useful in windows which are difficult to reach, for example behind a kitchen sink. Here you can have a central pull making the raising and lowering of the blinds easier.
With the introduction of the new pelmet enabling you to hide the roll top and make it look much neater I truly believe blinds will become more popular and could be used in all rooms in a house.
What styles are available?
We have Rollers that come as: standard rolled (1), standard rolled with matching pelmet (2), or reverse rolled (3). All pelmets are made bespoke to your roller blinds. If your blind in going on the inside of an angled recess, then the width of your pelmet will alter depending on where you want to fix it; the distance within the recess as to where it's placed is up to you. You will need to include this measurement in your order as your 'finished pelmet width'; please refer to the diagram below.

What linings are available?
We offer Processed Roller Blinds which are unlined & come without any blackout options (1), or Laminated Roller Blinds with white lining on the reverse of the main fabric (2). We do also offer blackout lining.
What bead or cord choices are available?
We have one stand alone, ivory coloured cord, available with centre pull Roller Blinds only. *Please note that the centre pull option for a Roller Blind, has a minimum width of 43cm - (1). For other standard roller blinds with a pull either to the left or right, we have the below beaded chains available, which are as follows (top to bottom) - (2): Brass, Gun metal, Pewter, Chrome & Antique Bronze
Can I have my pelmet either pattern matched, or as a contrast fabric?
You can have either! If the main fabric on the blind is the same as the pelmet, it would be pattern matched accordingly - (1). If, however, you'd like a different fabric for the pelmet, you would need to call us to discuss further so that we can make the notes on our system & charge for the extra fabric where applicable. For further details, please phone us on 01285 831437
How hard are roller blinds to install?
The simple answer is not at all. With only two fixture brackets and four screws, you can have your blinds up in less than 30 mins!
Installing blinds could not be easier and is perfect for someone who is new to DIY work.
You just need a cross head screwdriver, a pencil, a tape measure and a drill.
When properly installed, the roller blind will sit neatly inside or outside the window recess.
If you would like to hide the top roll from view and it is fitted inside a recess, we can now offer a pelmet made to match your blind.
How to measure up for your Roller blind:
Inside a window recess
Width: Measure the width of the recess from the left to the right (see E on the diagram)
Length: Measure from the top of the recess to the bottom (see E on the diagram)
YOU ONLY NEED TO PROVIDE US WITH THE FULL RECESS MEASUREMENT - the maker will allow for the rolling mechanism when making the blinds (There will be a gap of about 1.5cm between the fabric and the recess wall which will allow some light through, even with a blackout lining)
Outside a window recess
Width: Measure the outside of the window recess (see F on diagram) and add at least 5cms on each side to minimise any light leaking through.
Length: Measure from the required position above the window (again, we recommend adding at least 5cm) to the length you require (see F on the diagram)
This also applies to blinds that will be fitted to the outside of a door recess, we only need the width and length that you would like the finished blind to be.
Please note that if your roller blind is outside the recess, we have to allow for the mechanism at either side of the roller blind, which is usually 1.5cm each side. For example, if you want the fabric width of your blind to measure 100cm, you need to specify this upon placing your order otherwise our makers will assume it is the finished width, and cut the fabric down to 97cm with the remaining 3cm for the mechanism, i.e. 100cm full fabric width + 3cm for mechanism, making the finished width 103cm.
Your Roller blinds will be delivered ready rolled complete with fittings.
