5 types of roller blinds and their characteristics and advantages

What is a roller blind fabric

A roller blind is a single piece of fabric mounted on a roller. It is used to cover the window and scroll up or down in front of the window. A cord is used to scroll the blinds up to the top of the window or down to the window sill.


Roller blinds can be installed in a window recess (or an exposed window) or they can be installed outside a window recess. The choice of fabrics is wide and will depend on the decor of the room and factors such as humidity, privacy and required light transmission.
