Roman Blinds

Thin rods are inserted into pockets at the back of the blind, so when opened, the fabric folds into neat pleats.

A roman blind installed outside a recess will make your window look bigger and will maximise natural light during the day.

All types of fabrics and linings can be used for roman blinds, from cottons to silks.

Roller Blinds

Made with a single piece of fabric that rolls around an aluminium tube when opened.

Roller blinds work well in recesses and maximise natural light. And they’re often used with a curtain or roman blind to enhance privacy and blackout.

We have 16 different fabrics to pick from for your Roller blinds.
