Tips to Dressing Dining Room Windows with Roller Blinds
Roller blinds have been a staple of interior design for many years. Today the humble roller blinds has been, and continues to be, up-dated to meet consumer demands in terms of style, practicality and functionality. It’s no longer acceptable to use ‘any old blind’ if you want your home to look chic and stylish and with the number of different styles and designs available you’ll be spoilt for choice when dressing your dining room windows.
The latest roller blinds have sun filtering properties, blackout properties a long with header rails which are slim-line or fitted up behind pelmets or walls to disappear from view completely. Motorised and remote controlled blinds make this type of window dressing easy to operate and enhancing the way the blinds can be used to the best effect.
Today’s on-trend look is to have a number of roller blinds or shades for each pane of glass or panel of sliding doors. As each is independently operated you can have each at a different level, this not only gives a stunning visual look but also enables you to raise or lower each blind as the sun moves across the sky (particularly useful on south facing dining rooms) and because of their slim-line header rails allows you to successfully use roller blinds on patio doors without them getting in the way. In the past this was always a problem which is why many people elected to use vertical blinds rather than roller blinds.

1. They are available in a wide range of both plain colours and patterns, enabling you to coordinate them with your colour scheme.
2. Blackout roller blinds are the ideal window dressing if you want to block out unwanted light.

4. Blinds are ideal for helping to block out sunlight which can help prevent fading of your dining room flooring or carpet.
5. The motorised and remote controlled versions offer an easy to operate window dressing solution for those with a physical disability.
6. Remote controlled or blinds controlled by wands rather than pull cords alleviate the potential choke risk for children and vulnerable people.
