Discovering Roller Blinds
Dating as far back as the early 18th century, roller blinds are considered to be among the earliest types of blinds known to man. Holland roller linen, the earliest known material used for the production of roller blinds was thought to have been bleached in Holland, and laid out in the fields to dry. The earliest actual records of the production of Scotch Holland fabric dates back to James Louis Robertson, who weaved white linen cloth for blinds in 1725 in Glasgow.
Being simple in design and easy to operate, the roller blinds have taken the world by storm, and remain an extremely popular choice of window covering. With the wide range of fabrics, textures and colours available today, roller blinds are sure to match ad enhance any type of décor and colour scheme. This stylish and elegant solution to window dressing allows the user to easily adjust the amount of light which is allowed into a room, and is popular among home users throughout the world.
Roller blinds also offer a unique versatility in that the user either operates them via a chain or by remote control if they are motorised. The chains can also be linked, which eliminates the prospect of having numerous chains hanging down and offering a clean cut and stylish look. The various types of materials used for roller blinds offer the user the option of having a light fabric which allows a fair amount of light to shine through, or have a “blackout” blind, which completely blocks any light shining into the room. Roller blinds are versatile, easy to use and compliments any décor.
