Can I purchase roller blinds at Spotlight?
Yes, you can! Spotlight stock a large number of interior blinds and these include roller blinds in various styles and sizes. Roller blinds tend to be made from fabric that is sometimes treated to ensure that it keeps out all light (often referred to as blockout), and at other times is quite sheer, so that you have the option of filtering the light and maintaining privacy while still letting in some sun and daylight.
Roller blinds can be ideal as window dressing, but they often also perform an extra function by protecting you from people looking in, or filtering out harmful rays that fade your furnishings and carpets. They can even help to keep out the cold when needed, and can help to darken a room if small children, shift workers or people who are ill need to sleep during the daytime.
Where can I use roller blinds?
Roller blinds can be used on their own in front of windows, but they can also be combined with curtains as an extra window dressing, especially if you like to use your curtains just as window dressing rather than closing them. They can be combined with traditional and contemporary interiors.
Because they are mostly plain and unfussy, they are ideal for areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, studies, hallways etc. They are easily opened and closed with the cord that is supplied with them, but do always follow the installation instructions carefully as blind cords can be dangerous to small children and have caused deaths and injuries.
What sizes do roller blinds come in?
Roller blinds usually come in a variety of widths starting at 60 cm wide, and going up in increments of 30 cm at a time. Different manufacturers make blinds in different lengths, which can vary from 150 cm to as much as 240 cm long, and some blinds are available in a variety of lengths while other are all the same length.
Roller blinds can be cut to size to fit inside your window opening so they provide a snug fit along the sides of the window that does not let in excessive light, or can be hung in front of the window to cover the whole opening.
