Once the poor relative of fancier blind styles such, as Romans, Hollands and Venetians, advancements in fabric choices and design improvements have created a new breed of roller blinds. In the past, they were relegated to bedrooms, but now they are suitable for most rooms in even the most stylish homes.
Night Shift Workers Love Blockout Blinds
Blockout roller blinds prevent light from entering the room when they are fully extended. In hot climates where rooms face west, they are excellent for keeping out the heat. They are also the best choice for night workers who struggle to get enough sleep through the day in bedrooms that are only partially darkened.
UV Rays Kept Out with Modern Fabrics
Modern roller blinds are available in materials containing sunscreen to keep out UV rays while letting in mood-enhancing light and retaining views to the outside. Double roller blinds have the added benefits of combining light and heat control with blockout, all in one, double layered blinds.

Cleaning Methods for Roller Blinds
The average householder, with a little effort, can keep roller blinds clean. For newly installed or recently cleaned blinds, regular maintenance is the secret. With the blind fully extended, vacuum from top to bottom and wipe over with a damp cloth to remove any remaining material or stains.
If a deep clean is required, take the blind down and soak in a bathtub of water and laundry detergent. Rinse with clean water, wipe over with a non-abrasive cloth, then remove from the tub and hang out to dry. Once the blind is completely dry, rehang in its usual position.
Wide Choice of Materials Offer Durability
Modern materials have increased the durability of roller blinds. For wet areas such as bathrooms and laundries, blinds made from mould and bacteria-resistant material, are available. Other materials that are fire retardant, non-flammable, resistant to dust, staining and fading from UV rays, are also available.
The mechanisms, chains and cords on roller blinds can become damaged with wear and rough treatment, but those who are handy with basic tools can do repairs themselves. An internet search will provide full instructions, as well as parts lists where required.
