7 Reasons Why You Need Roller Blinds

If you’re looking for blinds, you’ve probably toyed with the idea of made-to-measure roller blinds.  

Maybe you want to spruce up your current interior, or maybe you just fancy a new set of blinds. Whatever it is, believe us when we say: made-to-measure roller blinds are one of the best types of blinds in 2023. 

Roller blinds are perfect for all rooms in the home, including living rooms, bathrooms, and home offices. However, they are particularly great for bedrooms, given how easy they are to motorise and fit with a blackout lining.  

Here are 7 reasons why you NEED made to measure roller blinds:  

1. Light Control   

The roller blind is the perfect window covering for blocking out light.  

Whether it’s too hot in the summer or too cold during the winter, roller blinds are flexible enough to adjust according to your needs.  

Not only this, but blackout roller blinds can also help you get a good night’s sleep! Blackout roller blinds are popular in bedrooms either as a standalone feature or in addition to curtains for a more practical use, as well as aesthetic.

If you’re having trouble sleeping as the nights and mornings’ grow lighter, a blackout roller blind could be the perfect solution. Not only that, but it will also keep your bedroom warm in winter and cool in summer.  

2. Privacy

Privacy is important to all of us, especially if you have passing foot traffic outside of your home. Using roller blinds, you can ensure total privacy from passers-by whilst still being able to look out at the view whenever you like.

With roller blinds, you can also control the level of privacy while keeping it comfortable and bright. They’re also great for allowing ventilation when needed and blocking out unwanted sounds. We all know that living next to a road or busy pathway can bring loud noises at inopportune times, so why not let your window coverings handle it?  

3. Versatility  

When it comes to having a wide variety of colours, materials, opacities, and other specifications, no other window treatment fits the bill, as well as roller blinds.

Roller blinds offer a completely compact and practical window dressing solution with an extensive range of colours, designs, patterns, and fabrics to cater to all tastes.

At Fraser James Blinds, our made-to-measure blinds are available in over 200 fabrics, from thick blackout materials to shade a young child’s bedroom to lighter, more airy fabrics for your living room. 

Roller blinds can be as simple or creative as you wish; you can keep things clean and contemporary with solid colours and straight lines, or you can opt for a striking combination of scallops, braids, and exotic patterns. With made-to-measure roller blinds from Fraser James Blinds, the choice is entirely yours.  

With so many different styles and designs on offer, there really is no limit when it comes to choosing roller blinds for your home!   

4. Compact

Perhaps you live in a smaller dwelling, and draping curtains are too bulky and will take up too much space with the billowing fabric and unsightly curtain rails.

Or maybe you live a more minimalist lifestyle and want a simple and elegant solution that won’t compromise effectiveness or practicality.

Made-to-measure roller blinds are designed to be slimline, fitting perfectly into your window space and sit flat by the glazing when rolled down, taking up no extra space.  

5. Affordability   

Whether you are buying new treatments because you have just moved into a new home or upgrading your existing window coverings, chances are that you want to do so in the most affordable manner possible.

Some homeowners spend hundreds of £££ on designer curtains and blinds that can fade or look worn within a couple of years. Roller blinds are more affordable and durable, allowing you to get more for your money than you could with other products.

This aspect is especially important if you are looking to replace all the window coverings in your home. Roller blinds are an excellent option for longevity without the hefty price tag.  

 6. Energy Efficiency  

Roller Blinds provide an excellent option for those looking for an energy-smart and cost-effective solution. Not only do they reduce glare, but they also act as a form of insulation for the home.   

They are both a buffer from the summer heat and a form of insulation during winter. By providing these incredible benefits, they reduce energy use and cut-down costs on cooling and heating – ultimately a sound economic choice.  

7. Convenience  

If having a window covering that is easy to clean is important to you, there is no better option than roller blinds. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, they are easy to clean and maintain, so they’ll last you for years!   

For a thorough clean, it’s as simple as fully extending the blind and vacuuming the material. Alternatively, another option is to use a microfibre cloth. For our complete guide to cleaning your blinds, click here.   

They’re also easy to use and can be adjusted with just a few simple steps.
