Made to Measure Roller Blinds

Roller blinds can work well in kitchens because they can offer total coverage of your windows in an easy to operate way. Choose from popular blind fabrics to create your perfect made to measure kitchen roller blinds. 

Which fabrics are best suited to kitchen roller blinds?

Many fabrics can be used to make wonderful kitchen roller blinds, such as the Fruit Garden, Lattice Leaf, Up the Garden Path and Cow Parsley.

The Fruit Garden comes in a lovely array of brightly coloured backgrounds, ranging from Plum purple, Peach, Damson pink,  and Buttercup yellow. This design comes with a cream background and coloured trellis design, which is the Fruit Garden Detail.

Our Orchard fabric collection is where you can see all of our Fruit Garden Fabrics

Up the Garden Path is a very beautiful design, perfect for soft furnishings and beautiful as cushion covers in contemporary settings. The colours themselves go from neutrals, to bright Pumpkin oranges and Saffron yellows; something for everyone!

Lattice Leaf is the most recent addition which is a two-coloured print on a Linen Union fabric.

Roller blinds are particuarly suitable convenient for behind a kitchen sink as you can still use the sill and also they are easy to pull up and down.

Can you get a Roller Blind with a centre pull?

Yes, we can make you a Roller Blind with a central pull. These are so handy for windows behind a kitchen sink to pull the blind up and down using the spring loaded mechanism. It's the ideal option for blinds going inside small recesses as you don't have the extra space being taken up with beaded chains resting at the side. 

Pros for choosing Roller Blinds:

GREAT FOR INSIDE A RECESS – Roller Blinds are a great option if you want to install a blind inside a recess because they are really easy to fit, lightweight, practical, easily adjustable with beaded chains (or ivory cord), and visually very stylish.

PELMETS - if you have your blind inside a recess, you can choose to have a smart, perfectly pattern matched pelmet that covers the roll at the top revealing the reverse lining; this is approximately 11 cm deep. It has revolutionised the use of Roller Blinds, making them much more attractive and usable in all rooms of a house!

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 centre pull which can be handy on a window behind the kitchen sink. This comes with an ivory coloured cord and wooden acorn.

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. It is just one piece of fabric that is adjusted with either a continuous beaded chain to either the left or right hand side of the blind, or as previously mentioned, a centre pull.

TREATMENT OPTIONS - We offer three different finishings on our Roller Blinds: Laminate, Blackout, and Processed. The laminated backing is a lining bonded onto the face of the fabric (no lamination takes place to the face fabric). Blackout is an off-white lining, which again is bonded to the fabric but is ideal for privacy. And Processed is just the fabric on its own with that has a clear stiffening spray applied to it for rigidness.

STYLISH IN DESIGN - You have a lot of creative freedom when it comes to the finished look of your Roller Blind. In addition to a pelmet, you can also add a 5 cm contrasting bottom border. Any of our other fabrics can be used for this, for example, Gypsy Garland in Dove, with a bottom border in Stockholm Stripe - Dove, Winter. You could also opt for a Plain Linen Union in Saffron border instead, to go with the Gypsy, depending on the other colours in your room. The choice is yours to coordinate as you see fit!

Here are even more pros and cons of roller blinds vs curtains and roman blinds.

How big can you make a kitchen Roller Blind?

The maximum size for a roller blind we can create for you is 240cm x 240cm.

Why is a Roller Blind a good choice for a kitchen?

A Roller Blind is a good choice for a kitchen because it can be inside a window recess and still enable you to use the window sills. A Roller Blind has a flat surface, so helps to facilitate a good exposure of colour and pattern in a room.

If you choose to place a Roller Blind in a kitchen outside the recess a pelmet can be made to match it to hide the top roll; the top of the roll is where the reverse lining is visible.

Which Patterns are most popular for kitchen roller blinds?

Striped roller blinds have been and remain a popular choice for installation in kitchens. 

Bright, multi coloured roller blinds are also popular, helping to draw the eye and make a statement or centre piece in your kitchen.

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 (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 as 'finished fabric width', otherwise our makers will assume it is the recess 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 final recess width 103cm.
