Made to Measure Roller Blinds

Roller blinds for living rooms can help transform your lounge or sitting room into a space you can be proud of. Choose from fabrics that are perfect for creating living room roller blinds and get a fabric that offers a modern contemporary feel or choose something to create more classic, traditional roller blinds. 

Choose a roller blind with a matching pelment for a perfect relaxing and socializing space in your living room. They may contain furnishings such as a sofa, chairs, footstools, bookshelves, lamps, rugs, or other furniture. 

Our fabrics are suitable for all styles of living room, from contemporary to traditional. It is important to have a balance between blinds and curtains in a room so you don’t feel there are too many curtains, but enough to feel cosy and provide some elegance. Sometimes people choose Roller Blinds for smaller windows, and blinds as well as curtains in large windows for extra colour and window dressing. Dropping down Roller Blinds is much easier and quicker than drawing curtains.

Which fabrics are best for modern living room roller blinds?

The Artisan Collection, with designs such as Origami, Shibori, Momo, and Japonica, all create a modern feel.

Which fabrics can I choose from your range for a traditional living room?

Herbaceous Border Detail and Cow Parsley are amongst many of our beautiful floral linens that offer a more traditional feel. All these main prints have matching and coordinates for covering the sofas, chairs, and footstools. If you're unsure about what colour palette to use in your room/re-upholstery/soft furnishings etc, then why not book a free of charge video call with our Design Consultant? With a keen eye for colour and design, she can help discuss your upcoming projects over an informal video call.

You can also use our Made to Measure service to make your Roller Blinds, and have some matching lampshades or cushions made for your sitting room too.

Pros of 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, taking 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!

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 the top ever. The maximum size for roller and roman blinds is 240cm x 240cm.

Here are even more pros of roller blinds

All these can be made for you through our Made to Measure service.

All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen, and Linen Union, making them suitable for lampshades, curtains, blinds, cushions, and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days subject to availability. The same team, who takes your order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

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.

 Your Roller blinds will be delivered complete with hanging instructions and fittings.
