Our roller blinds are made from gorgeous natural fabrics, no polyester here! So you can get the convenience and style of a roller blind without the plastic look. To top it off, you can choose from a plain or blackout lining.

We advise using a metal tape measure for accuracy. Measurements should be in cm to the nearest 1/2 cm. Please double-check your measurements.
1. Inside Recess
Make sure that the recess is at least 6cm deep.Otherwise the blind will protrude beyond the recess.
1. You need to measure width A-B. We need this measurement in full; do not reduce it.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.2. Measure drop C-D3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left
2. Outside Recess
Decide on the amount of fabric to overlap the top and sides of the window recess. We recommend at least 5cm for the top and 6.5cm for the sides to minimise light leakage when using a blackout lining.
1. Measure the width A-B2. Measure the drop C-D3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left
3. Fixed to Window Architrave (Frame)
First, decide whether you want your roller blind to hang on the outside or inside of the window architrave.

Plain lining Our standard plain lining is laminated to the back of your fabric to make it flat and stiff so it works well on a roller system. This clever process means you can use almost any curtain or blind material on a simple, modern roller blind system.
Blackout lining Similar to the plain lining above but a blackout lining will block any light from passing through it. This makes it a perfect choice for a bedroom because it stops the morning sun from disrupting your sleep. It has the added advantage of having good thermal properties so it will keep your room warm and toasty too.
Supersize Samples If you need to see more of your fabric before you buy, you can get a supersize sample - a 40x40cm piece of your chosen fabric).
Real fabric not plastic We use real fabric when making our roller blinds, so they won’t have a plastic look unlike most roller blinds. The fabric of your choice is laminated onto a lining layer which stiffens it and keeps it flat so it rolls up and down well on the roller mechanism.
Standard Roll and Reverse RollOn a ‘standard’ roll, the fabric rolls off the back of the roll nearer the window pane, with the lining showing on the blind barrel. We recommend you choose ‘standard’ roll if you're concerned about light filtering into the room through the sides of the blinds.On a ‘reverse’ roll, the fabric rolls off the front of the roll with the fabric showing on the blind barrel. The front of the blind is approximately 6cm from the window. This blind is not suitable if you are concerned about light filtering into the room through the sides of the blind.
