Roller blinds are a great alternative to curtains and vertical/horizontal blinds. If you are new to the concept, you might have a few questions about roller blinds. Before we get into more details, let’s look at how roller blinds can benefit you.
Roller blinds are aesthetically pleasing. They are super stylish and come in various designs and colours, also making them extremely versatile. If you’re looking for a blind that’s easy to use and durable, roller blinds should be on top of your list of choices.
How Do Roller Blinds Work?
Roller blinds aren’t complicated at all. They consist of sheets of thick fabric with a hollow tube that contains a spring and ratchet. You will also find a pull tab at the bottom which makes it extremely easy to operate. At no stage do you have to touch the fabric, thus protecting it from getting dirty.
The fabric is rolled up around the tube to control the amount of sunlight you want to let in. The internal ratchet allows you to lock the blind into place once you’ve reached a satisfactory level of shading.
When you order blinds to be custom made, you can choose whether you want the fabric to roll off the front or the back of the tube. Keep in mind that more you will create more space between the window and the fabric if you choose ‘front’, thus more light will come in. Blocking out light will be much easier when rolled down the back.
