If you want that bright airy feel and the sun shining into your living space our range of light filtering roller blinds will be the perfect choice for your home. But if you are looking for more privacy and a better night’s sleep, we recommend our blackout roller blind. Our made to measure service will help you get the perfect fit for the window and block out that unwanted light.

To fit roller blinds, you will need:

  • The roller blind itself
  • Screws
  • A drill
  • A screwdriver
  • A measuring tape
  • A pencil

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Measure the width and height of the window where you want to install the roller blind. Make sure to measure from the inside of the window frame to get the most accurate measurement.
  2. Measure and mark the center point of the window frame at the top and bottom. This is where you will drill the screws that will hold the blind in place.
  3. Hold the top of the roller blind against the window frame, making sure that it is level and centered. Mark the positions of the screws on the window frame.
  4. Pre-drill the screw holes using a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screws you will be using.
  5. Hold the roller blind in place and screw it into the window frame using the screws and a screwdriver.
  6. Test the blind to make sure it moves up and down smoothly. If it doesn't, you may need to adjust the tension by tightening or loosening the screws on the back of the blind.
  7. Repeat the process for any additional roller blinds you want to install.

To measure for roller blinds, you will need a measuring tape. Follow these steps:

  1. Measure the width of the window at the top, middle, and bottom. Record the smallest measurement, as this will be the width of the blind.
  2. Measure the height of the window from the top of the window frame to the window sill or, if the blind will be mounted outside the window frame, to the desired point above the window.
  3. Decide where you want to mount the blind. If you want to mount it inside the window frame, measure from the inside of the frame to the desired point where the blind will end. If you want to mount it outside the window frame, measure from the outside of the frame to the desired point.
  4. When you have all your measurements, choose a roller blind that fits within the smallest width measurement and the desired length measurement.
  5. It is always a good idea to double-check your measurements before placing an order, as it can be difficult to return custom-made products.

To remove roller blinds, you will need:

  • A screwdriver
  • A ladder (if the blinds are out of reach)

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Locate the screws or brackets that hold the blind in place. These are usually located at the top of the window frame or on the wall above the window.
  2. Use a screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws.
  3. Carefully lift the roller blind off the brackets or screws and set it aside.
  4. If the blind is stuck or difficult to remove, gently wiggle it back and forth while pulling it down to loosen it.
  5. Once the blind is removed, you can clean it or store it for future use.
  6. If you no longer want the blinds and will be disposing of them, make sure to recycle them properly according to your local regulations.

It is generally not recommended to cut roller blinds, as they are typically made to fit a specific size and any alterations could affect their performance and durability. If you need a custom size, it is usually best to purchase a roller blind that is made to your desired size.

If you still want to cut a roller blind, here are some things to consider:

  • Make sure you have the proper tools, such as a sharp utility knife or scissors.
  • Measure and mark the cutting line clearly and accurately, using a ruler or measuring tape to ensure a straight cut.
  • Use a straight edge, such as a ruler or a level, to guide the knife or scissors for a clean, straight cut.
  • Cut slowly and carefully, taking care not to accidentally cut through any cords or mechanisms that operate the blind.
  • If the blind has a pattern or design, make sure to align the cutting line with the pattern to avoid ruining the design.

Keep in mind that cutting a roller blind may void any warranties or guarantees, and the modified blind may not function properly.

Making your own roller blinds can be a cost-effective and customizable way to add window coverings to your home. Here is a basic tutorial on how to make roller blinds:

Materials:

  • Fabric of your choice
  • Roller blind kit (includes the roller tube, brackets, and cords)
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Fabric glue (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Measure the width and height of the window where you want to install the blind. Add about 2 inches to the width and about 6 inches to the height to allow for hems and overlap.
  2. Cut the fabric to the desired size, using the measurements from step 1.
  3. Hem the edges of the fabric. To do this, fold the edges of the fabric over about 1/2 inch and iron them in place. Then fold the edges over again about 1/2 inch and iron them in place again. Sew the hem in place using a sewing machine or needle and thread.
  4. Glue the fabric to the roller tube, using fabric glue or a hot glue gun. If you are using fabric glue, make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and allow the glue to dry completely before proceeding.
  5. Install the brackets and cords according to the instructions in the roller blind kit.
  6. Hang the blind on the brackets and test it to make sure it moves up and down smoothly. Adjust the cords as needed to achieve the desired tension.
  7. Repeat the process for any additional roller blinds you want to make.

Keep in mind that making your own roller blinds requires some basic sewing and DIY skills. If you are not comfortable with these tasks, it may be best to purchase pre-made roller blinds or hire a professional to install them for you.

Here are some common problems with roller blinds and how to fix them:

  1. Blinds won't stay up or down: This may be caused by a problem with the cords or tension. To fix this, try adjusting the cords or screws on the back of the blind to increase or decrease the tension. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the cords or other mechanisms.
  2. Blinds are difficult to raise or lower: This may be caused by dirt or debris caught in the mechanism. To fix this, try cleaning the mechanism with a soft cloth or a toothbrush. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the mechanism.
  3. Blinds have become misaligned: If the blinds are not rolling up evenly or are not level, they may have become misaligned. To fix this, try adjusting the brackets or screws that hold the blind in place. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the brackets or screws.
  4. Blinds have torn or frayed fabric: If the fabric on your roller blinds has become torn or frayed, you may be able to repair it by patching the hole or reinforcing the fabric with fabric glue or a hot glue gun. If the damage is too extensive, you may need to replace the blinds.

If you are having difficulty fixing your roller blinds, you may want to consider hiring a professional for repairs or replacing the blinds entirely.

To take down roller blinds, you will need:

  • A screwdriver
  • A ladder (if the blinds are out of reach)

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Locate the screws or brackets that hold the blind in place. These are usually located at the top of the window frame or on the wall above the window.
  2. Use a screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws.
  3. Carefully lift the roller blind off the brackets or screws and set it aside.
