A roller blind is made up of roughly three parts, the pole, usually made from aluminium which the fabric wraps around. The fabric which makes up the largest area of the blind and a bottom bar. To make a roller blind operational on your window frame, you need two sidewinders, the bit the chain is on to operate the blind.
Roller blinds are attached to the window with brackets, these come in many shapes and forms, all different for their use cases or looks. Roller blinds are simple when you break them down, this is how they have an almost endless array of options.
Starting with fabrics, these come in an almost endless choice and they come and go out of style or fashion. A fabric popular for a few years can fall out of fashion depending on the style which people have their homes set out in. Fabrics can be coloured or printed with patterns or images, like logo blinds. They also come in blackout or non blackout version.
Bottom bars, these also have endless options and for good reason, they need to match the fabric. Bottom bars come in metal or plastic and every colour in-between, the function of a bottom bar is to keep the blind straight and weighted down.
This is why you can find a roller blind that will suit almost any room style.
Roller blinds aren’t suitable for all use cases and that’s where our expertise and experience comes into play. When you buy from us you are buying from an expert team with knowledge from thousands of purchases and installations. Giving you peace of mind when buying. For example, tilt and turn windows, the windows that open up into the room can be unsuitable for roller blinds as they hit the fabric and cause damage. Or even block the window from being open.
Roller blinds are actually one of the most affordable window coverings. This is because of how they are made and the cost can really come down to the type of fabric you choose. Just like if you pick cashmere over cotton.
We have an array of fabrics and types of fabrics that you can pick from. Our sales team will show you each type and talk you through the pros and cons of each.
Fabrics range from standard, which are plain colours with little detail. These are cost effective and popular.
Patterned fabrics that have designs running throughout them.
Blackout fabrics, these have a special coating that block light from passing through the fabric. Think of an extra layer on the back to prevent any light from penetrating the material.
Upmarket fabrics that have special materials woven through them to provide different effects. Meaning rather than a standard block of colour these have chances for light to scatter differently. Creating a more luxurious effect.
A special kind of fabric called blackout fabrics can be used, also knows as blackout rollers. These prevent light from passing through the fabric with a special coating on the back of the fabric.
Ideal for kids rooms, cinema rooms, bedrooms for light mornings and any other reason you might have to block out light.
Standard roller blinds come with a chain operated mechanism that is used to pull the blind up and down. Our preference is to use a stainless steel chain to provide the best long lasting finish. These are wrapped around different sizes of pole depending on the width of the blind.
We also offer electric roller blinds, which can be controlled via a smart hub (think Alexa, Google Hub).Or with a remote control.
You can also get roller blinds that can have a logo printed on to them. Ideal for businesses with windows that face footfall or a road. Free advertising for your business.
In bathrooms, yes. Ideally fabrics that can hold up to the atmosphere that a bathroom creates. Think lots of steam from baths and showers, plus easier to clean fabrics to keep them looking fresh. Along with these we always recommend a chain material that wont suffer from these conditions as some materials can rust or deteriorate over time.
A very popular choice for kitchens as they are easy to clean and operate. With a kitchen involving a lot of smells and messy business an easy to clean blind will keep your kitchen looking tip top for longer.
In some instances roller blinds are the obvious choice and in others they are not. It can be down to maybe a fabric that you really like or you need to budget for all your window coverings.
Pick roller blinds for the ease of use, almost endless choices and they are always easy to replace when you are thinking about updating a room.
Personally, the roller blinds I’ve had for three years can say yes, they do last.
If you look after your blinds and don’t mind the same colours year after year.
We pride and model our business on quality products. Meaning we only want to offer blinds that we know will last throughout all kinds of use cases. Be that a heavier used blind over one that only gets put up and down a few times a week.
You can and that’s all Cross Blinds deal with. Quality Blinds at Great Prices.
