Roller blinds are one of the most popular styles of blinds across Australia today. They come in nearly any colour, and so are highly likely to cater to all different interior design styles as well as a range of interior decor. Roller blinds are easy to put up with precision, as well as being easy to maintain and generally keep clean, as their flat surface gathers no dust, unlike venetian slat blinds.
Roller blinds come in both sunshades and blockout, which means they can function differently depending on their style. Roller blinds are clearly the best choice when it comes to buying new blinds, but if they do not fit just right, then there may be some dissatisfaction. For this reason, we want to make sure that you take all the necessary steps before buying your roller blinds online through our store on Quickfit Blinds & Curtains.
Be sure to accurately measure the window to order the right size. You can follow the little guide we've outlined below to make sure your measurements and blind requirements are in alignment before you make your final purchase.
Advice For Ordering Blinds Online
Choose your preferred mount
Inside or outside mounts are your two options when it comes to hanging roller blinds. An inside mount essentially means that the blinds will be mounted on the inside of the window frame. Outside mount means the roller blinds hang on the wall space surrounding the frame. As most people tend to prefer their roller blinds to be contained within their window to minimise risks of breakage, inside mounts tend to be the most popular. If you'd prefer an outside mount, be sure to add in the measurements of the space outside your frame as well.
Measure twice (at the very least)
When roller blinds do not fit your window correctly, they can hang unevenly, allowing light to come in through one side of the shade, or droop in the middle of the fabric, causing an unattractive “cupping” look. To avoid this, be sure to measure your windows at least twice. You should also try to measure each window separately, even if you have windows that appear to be the same size. This may seem like a lot of work but trust us, it will be worth it when you get roller blinds that fit just right. Take it from our team here at Quickfit: there are far few more satisfying feelings in the world than installing a panel of perfectly measured roller blinds.
