Types of Roller Blinds
Classic Roller Blind Collection
Our traditional roller blinds are available in a wide variety of colours, patterns, designs and materials including lace, linen, suedette and fabric. Composed of durable material, roller blinds roll easily and smoothly up and down simple wall mechanisms. Our classic roller blinds are simple, easy to use window dressings; the ideal accompaniment to curtains. Roller blinds are perhaps the most well-known style of blind and are often considered to be a traditional window dressing. The lasting nature and style of these blinds speak for itself however, whilst the principal mechanics of the roller blind have remained the same for years, the design and style have been continually updated. This has ensured that the roller blind remains one of the top blinds to use when decorating and updating the look of your home.
Blackout Roller Blinds
Blackout roller blinds are the ideal addition to your bedroom if what you crave is the perfect night's sleep. Our range of blackout roller blinds almost completely block out the sun, helping to protect your furniture from the sun whilst also ensuring you get a good night's sleep. At Dunelm Mill we pride ourselves on the quality of our roller blinds and we are happy to say that all of our blackout roller blinds are thermally insulated; keeping rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Perhaps the room that will benefit most from our range of roller blinds is the bedroom. The main reason for this is that they are available with a blackout lining.

Our range of blackout roller blinds are always a hit with children due to the wide range of colours and accessories available to brighten up their bedrooms.
Roller blinds are also a popular choice in bathrooms. Often the principal use of blinds in this room is privacy. These blinds are very practical in this sense as they can subtly fit inside the window frame, a perfect option for windows that are traditionally rather small. However, practicality is not the only benefit to these types of blinds, by adding a roller blind to your bathroom you have the opportunity to introduce a splash of colour to your room without having to totally redecorate. A roller blind is much more suited to the conditions of a bathroom than other types of blinds such as a roman blind. The moist and often damp conditions could leave a roman blind looking and smelling rather mouldy, this is due to the amount of fabric involved in the composition of a roman blind. This is where a roller blind can really shine. This style of blind is built for these types of conditions and can often just be wiped clean with a damp cloth if necessary.
Benefits of Roller Blinds
Roller blinds are a practical choice and bring a simple style to your window. However, these blinds are far from boring with a wide range of colours and materials to choose from you'll be spoilt for choice. We also offer a variety of edges for the bottom of your blind that can help to create a truly unique look in your home. The edge options available for roller blinds are eyelet, straight or cafe style. Each style of edge adds an individual look to your blind and can help to complement your decor. Here at Dunelm Mill we are happy to offer our customers the choice of fourteen colours, three materials and the option to have patterned, plain or photographic design.
Roller blinds are also the perfect partner to a pair of curtains. These types of blinds, especially those with blackout lining, are being increasingly used to add extra protection from the sun's rays. Teamed with a pair of curtains they provide the perfect sleeping environment for both children and adults.
