Made to Measure Roller Blinds

Do you have any floral fabrics suitable for mae to measure roller blinds?

My bold floral curtain fabric Wild Rose is inspired as suggested by its name, from the delicate shape of hedgerow Dog Roses. 

The same flower head is depicted in Songbirds, making the two floral fabrics easy to use together in the same room.

Songbirds make beautiful yellow and grey floral fabric roller blinds with its slightly Oriental pattern: between the florals and birds are gentle meandering vertical stripes filled with delicate spots. This design is also available in wallpaper. Floral patterned fabrics and wallpapers work particularly well in bedrooms, sitting rooms, bathrooms and hallways.

My timeless wildflower fabric, Cow Parsley, shows small simplistic butterflies sitting on the heads of the quintessential English wildflower, Cow Parsley. Again, I have slight obsession with spots and stripes, which are ever evident on the delicate wings of British butterflies. This is my best selling floral roller blind fabric.

Lazy Daisy is my most classic pink English Floral fabric. In gentle soft hues of pink, the daisy flower heads nod to each other and create an old English cottage garden feel. This design also comes in a larger scale in a Duck Egg Blue flower fabric called French Floral, perfect for feminine bedroom pink floral blinds..

PROS FOR CHOOSING ROLLER BLINDS:

GOOD FOR INSIDE A RECESS – if you are looking to fix a blind into a recess, roller blinds are the perfect choice and why not add a pelmet to hide the roll?  With roller blinds you have complete control over how much material covers the window. This is especially a good feature if you have smaller windows.

MAXIMUM LIGHT – if you want to allow in as much natural light as possible, roller blinds may be the better option over roman blinds. With roller blinds, the fabric rolls up at the top of your window and will take up about 9 cm of space.

CENTRAL PULL – with a roller blind you can have a central pull which can be handy on a window behind the kitchen sink.

LOWER MAINTENANCE – once you have pulled up a roman blind you sometimes have to handle the folds as they can get caught in the cords, you don’t have this problem with roller blinds.

NEW – ROLLER BLIND PELMETS – If you have your blind in a recess, you can now choose to have a smart pelmet made with it which covers the ‘roll’, is pattern matched to the main blind and is approximately 11 cm deep. This has revolutionised the use of roller blinds, making them much more attractive and so usable in all rooms of a house!

Also if you can’t reach the top of the window at all easily, a roller blind with a pelmet to hide the roll might be the right choice as you will have no need to reach to the top ever…maximum size for roller and roman blinds is 240cm x 240cm

BOTTOM BORDER: Think about using a contrasting colour for a border on the bottom edge of the blind, to add some interest.

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.
